The Seoul Metropolitan Government signed an agreement with ADT Caps on Wednesday through which it will provide affordable home security service for women.
As a part of the city's efforts to create a safe environment for female residents in Seoul, 3,000 single women will be eligible to use the security service for just W9,900 (US$1=W1,114) per month compared to the normal W64,000.
The system's security sensors are installed to detect intruders and then notify police. They can be controlled by smartphone or remote.
The basic contract term is three years but can be renewed. Women who live in rented homes on yearly or monthly leases with deposits under W70 million (US$1=1,114) are eligible
"Soon, the city will also provide guards for women who return home late at night," said a city official.
