We visited the owners whose houses had been broken into. We noticed that they used only one lock although two locks can be used to make it more difficult for the burglars to break into. With a clamp and two locks in place, we are very sure it is a strong deterrent to the burglars not to target your unit. This is a measure that any owner can take to make your house more secured.
For long term measure to tighten the security, the JMB is looking into installing proximity readers in the lifts. With this system, every resident needs an access card to go to his/her floor. You just touch the reader with your card, the lift will only stop at the floor where your card has been programmed. You cannot go to other floors. Without a card, the lifts will not run. The staircases on the ground floor will be installed with readers too. We really don’t know what is the cost incurred for this project.
Anyone who is in the home security business is welcomed to advise us or maybe provide us with a quotation.
