Don’t come knocking: The North Carolina resident has a Doorbell Boa anti-theft video door mount with a Ring security camera on her front door
On her front door, she has a $39.99 Doorbell Boa anti-theft video door mount with a Ring security camera, which costs about $100 depending on the style.
‘This is perfect. It’s user-friendly,’ she said. ‘You can see what’s going on 24/7, which is great.’
Chamia also has a portable lock that prevents people from opening her door from the outside for additional security. The Addalock, which is dubbed the ‘original’ portable door lock, sells for $17.95, though there are less expensive brands.
‘You can take this with you to a hotel, whatever. Basically, it sticks in the door,’ she explained. ‘You lock your door and it prevents people from coming in.’

Preparerd: The TikToker has an indoor security camera and an adjustable steel door security bar to keep her balcony secure if someone tries to break in
Meanwhile, she keeps the door to her balcony secure using Master Lock’s adjustable steel door security bar, which retails for about $20. When placed up against the doorknob, it resists forced entry.
‘I know y’all saw that video of the man climbing through the balcony. People are crazy. Getcha one, sis,’ she said.
Chamia was likely referring to a recent headline-making incident in which an intruder broke into a Maryland woman’s second-floor apartment through the balcony while she was filming a dance on TikTok.
She ended her video with a closeup of her Blurams indoor security cameras, which retails for just $21.75.
‘I have a camera just so I can see what’s going on in the inside because you never know,’ she explained. ‘That’s it. Y’all stay safe. Peace.’
Worth it: Chamia shared that everything she bought for her apartment is from Amazon and relatively inexpensive
Hard to handle: Women appreciated the tips but were admittedly frustrated by the lengths they have to go to protect themselves
Not only did she make the informative video but she also shared links to all the products in her TikTok bio, revealing in the caption that ‘everything is from Amazon.’
Many women were grateful for the tips but were admittedly frustrated by the lengths they have to go to protect themselves.
‘The fact that us girls gotta go through this,’ one TikTok user wrote in the comments, while another added: ‘This is great and all, but anyone a little sad that we have to do this just to not be attacked by men?’
Others shared their own security advice with Chamia.
‘I keep that Master Lock on my bedroom door too ’cause I’m paranoid,’ one woman admitted.
‘Don’t forget the window film to prevent intruders from breaking in through the window or glass door,’ Someone else added. ‘Hope this helps you.’
