Following are the two type of the security mechanism used in Cochin apartments:
Doors and Locks
The first step is to "harden the target" or build your apartment harder to enter. Remember the burglar will just bypass your apartment if it wants too much effort or requires more skill and tools than they possess. Most burglars enter through the front, back, or garage doors. A quality door knob-in-lock set will have a 'dead latch' mechanism to avoid slipping the lock with a shim or credit card.
You need to use a solid core wood or metal door for all entry points
Make sure that doors should fit closely into the door jamb
You must use a quality, heavy-duty, deadbolt lock with a one-inch bolt
You must use a quality, heavy-duty, door knob-in-lock set with a dead-latch mechanism
Use a heavy-duty four-screw strike plate installed with 3-inch screws to penetrate into a wooden door frame
Use a wide-angle 160 peephole mounted no higher than 58 inches
Lighting
Interior lighting is essential to show symbols of occupancy inside a residence at night. Seeing a dark apartment night-after-night is the main message to burglars that you are away from your apartments. Light-timers are low-priced and can be set up almost everywhere.
Typically, you want to make use of light-timers close to the front and back windows with the curtains drawn. The pattern of them clicking on and off creates actual occupancy. It is also calming not to have to enter a dark residence. Timers can also be used to turn on the television or radio to simulate occupancy during the daytime. These infra-red security lights are suggested for Kochi apartments with patios and back doors.
