Apartment laundry rooms tend to attract people who aren’t always conducting themselves appropriately.
In this video, a Stealth security operator saw an individual wearing a dark jacket and knit cap covered with a hood enter the laundry room of an Austin apartment community on a January night. A second suspect walked in shortly after. The hooded individual climbed on top of one of the laundry machines, being careful to keep his back to the security camera. He then placed something over the lens of the camera to obstruct its view.
Our monitoring operator contacted Austin police. Officers arrived minutes later and apprehended the suspects.
Community spaces like laundry rooms are great amenities to offer your residents. They can help make your property more attractive to potential renters and can encourage current renters to stay because they provide a convenient, time-saving service. However, they aren’t without their problems. Security being one of them. Laundry rooms that aren’t well secured are alluring to vandals, loiterers and thieves.
Live video monitoring is an effective way to help keep your property secure. Trained security operators monitor surveillance cameras in real time to watch for anything suspicious. If they spot something, they can act immediately.
The right security solution can help ensure you provide a safe environment for all your residents and staff.
