where do burglars and robbers enter your home?
1. Community gate is the first check point to an apartment complex or any residential area with security. Many communities rely on RFID cards but don’t have 24/7 security guards.
2. Multilevel apartment buildings often require residents to use RFID cards to access to different floors of the building. Although it strengthens the security, non-residents still can find loopholes to get into the building.
3. The door for each individual housing unit is the last security checkpoint in community living. On average burglars take less than a minute to break into a house and spends another 8-12 minutes in the house before leaving.
