Set an alarm in a rental house: when is it really necessary?

More and more people decide to install an alarm in their home as an effective way to ensure the safety of their family. In addition, the installation of home alarms is simple and generally does not require works or large investments.

But, Can I put an alarm in a rented house?

Should I notify my landlord?

Who bears the installation and maintenance costs?

Is it convenient to put an alarm in a rental house?

Put an alarm in a rental home depends on many thingsalthough security is the main element to consider and should always be a priority.

On the other hand, many rented dwellings are rented by young people, both students and workers, who spend much of the day and weekends away of the home, which makes them a “target” for thieves.

Ensuring the integrity of material goods and of the people who live inside them is Responsibility of those residing in the dwelling rental, not your landlord. It is true that the house can have anti-theft insurance and cover expenses such as damage, but this does not guarantee the protection of people on a day-to-day basis or of the private property that the tenant has in his home.

For this reason, installing security alarms inside houses and rented flats is an option that we should always value.

Who should hire the alarm?

In rented houses and flats, the installation of interior security measures is not the owner’s obligation, but it is something that the tenant or lessee values.

If you’ve just moved into a flat or rental house that already has an alarm, you should make a change of ownership
because it is easy for the contract to be in the name of the previous tenant and even the owner.

The change of ownership is essential, since any security company in Spain protects the owner who appears in the alarm contract. Normally this change is free and is done by contacting the security company directly.

If the alarm does not have a permanence contract, you can choose another company that offers you better conditions, when considering installing one of the Movistar Prosegur Alarmas home alarms.

As you know, before hiring an alarm it is important assess the physical characteristics of the homeincluding surface area, number of entrances to the property and location, existence of terraces or balconies, etc.

Choosing is not always easy, so it is advisable to seek advice from the best professionals before making a decision.

According to the communication to the owner, you should always inform him of any change you make in his home, even if it does not require major interventions and regardless of whether you assume all the expenses. This also includes setting an alarm.

And what happens if I move?

Placing an alarm in a rental house is a good option even if you are clear that it is a temporary home for work reasons or if you plan to change residence.

If you decide to hire one of the Movistar Prosegur Alarmas home alarms, we guarantee that, in the event of a move, you can put your alarm in your new house without increasing your fees monthly, which will depend exclusively on the type of alarm and the elements you have contracted.

Although many of our alarms are wireless and easy to move, it will always be our technicians who make this change. The new installation is free for our customers.

Alarms without fees: an option for rental flats?

Some people believe that installing an alarm without fees is a good alternative to protect a rental apartment. And it is that, by not having signed a contract with a security company, in case of leaving the house it is not necessary to carry out any procedure or change the contract. Just turn off the alarm.

However this is not entirely true. Although the alarms without quotas do not link you with any security company, the truth is that they also cannot compare to our alarms in terms of functionality and effectiveness.

To start, the alarms without quotas are not connected to an Alarm Receiving Center and, in the event of a break-in or theft, the police will not receive a specific alert call. In addition, the alarms without quotas are installed directly by users, without expert supervision and without regular maintenance. In other words, you have no guarantee that the system will work when you really need it.

Broadly speaking, alarms without quotas can work as deterrent method, but in no case are they effective in case of theft.

If you are considering this option, analyze what your properties and your security are worth, and assess whether it is worth paying a monthly fee for them.
