ALPS 1-2-3 Home Protection

We’ve written more than a few articles on the variety of tasks involved in properly securing your investment property. We would also suggest using technology to your advantage too! With that in mind, here are three quick and easy-to-install products that you should consider using in your investment homes:

1) Armor Concepts Door Reinforcements

Stop thieves from breaking into your investment home. The easiest and fastest way into the home is through a door. Even if locked, it takes a thief seconds to kick in a door. Armor Concepts provides door reinforcement hardware to prevent door kick-ins. And the extra bonus? They back up their products with a $500 performance guarantee!

2) Tattletale Portable Alarms

If a thief gets into the house through the door, a window or any other opening, an alarm system will notify you and the police that the house has been compromised and get them scrambling in a hurry. The Tattletale portable alarm system is durable, tamper-proof, easy to set-up and can be moved to your next vacant property or renovation product.

3) StoveTop FireStop Fire Suppression Products

Cooking equipment is the leading cause of household fires and fire injuries. Having a working fire extinguisher in the kitchen and smoke alarms are a must, but most cooking fires start when the stove is on and unattended. There’s no one around to use that extinguisher, and batteries can go bad, or sometimes get removed by tenants.  Prevent a small stove fire from becoming a large fire that threatens the loss of your entire investment or injury to your tenant. Use StoveTop FireStop!

Make an investment in safety this year!
