The old mediocre and poor residents of Houston were pushed away due to this price hike in the rents and other living commodities. A few numbers of existing criminals were able to join new troops with them who were not able to make proper living after its transformation.

This means that no one will be able to enter in your apartment until he knows your security code or you open the door from inside of your apartment. This has been very successful approach in cities like New York and so is the case with Houston now a day.
Some apartments building owners have made sure to provide sturdy doors to their customers with strong door frames and some have hired security guards for the safe keeping of their customers. Guards can be provided on full time and part time basis based on the rent you pay for your apartment as some of the apartments also have all the above mentioned facilities because they charge a very high amount of rent to their customers. It does not mean that you can only be safe if you have enough money to pay your landlords because Houston police have become even more efficient in tracking down the criminals from last few years.

They install security cameras where ever they are needed in your house and this need is analysed after close and detailed study of the structure of your house. The footage of these security cameras is regularly watched over by the careful employees of the security providing company.
