To get to my room from the street you first have to pass through a gate with a combination lock, then pass a guard shack (the lodge) with a guard inside, then use an electronic key fob to get into my building, then use a key to get into my flat, then use the key again to get into my room. I have no idea how many security cameras I passed in that process.
I don’t know if it’s safe (it seems to be quite safe), but it’s certainly secured.
