Wealthy homeowners in the Hamptons, part of the East End of Long Island near New York, are striking back at potential burglars and intruders by installing luxury panic rooms.
Many inhabitants fear that members of the violent Salvadorian MS-13 gang are moving eastwards towards the Hamptons and will start to target the super rich in their own homes. And sleeping with a gun is no longer enough for several residents https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6249799/Super-rich-Hamptons-homeowners-installing-luxury-panic-rooms-fears-grow-deadly-MS-13.html.
Individuals are spending up to $200,000 on creating a panic room equipped with a master bedroom suite and actually sleeping inside the room rather than the rest of the house. The fact that two years ago a woman was sexually attacked in her own home by gang member only bolsters fears and many are concerned similar attacks will happen in coming months.
A panic room provides the ultimate level of protection against home invasion, offering a highly secure and safe haven for occupants of the house to hide during a break-in. Once inside, the homeowner can contact the police or security personnel and wait to be rescued.
Installing a panic room also provides an ideal place in which to store valuables such as paintings, sculptures and jewellery when away from the property.
You don’t have to spend $200,000 though! The Panic Room Company can specify, design, manufacture and install a panic room from as little as $20,000 ensuring complete peace of mind and also adding significant resale value to any property.
