Get custom-quality security protection for apartment-level prices with SimpliSafe ($225 and up). This ingenious security system uses wireless technology to let the keypad, remotes, motion and entry sensors, and panic button connect to the main base station, which emits an 85-decibel siren and wirelessly contacts the service's dispatch center in the case of an emergency or break-in. The best part? You can take it with you when you leave your apartment, making sure that you're just as safe in your new digs as your old. [Thanks, Jasper]
