Multifamily Security Challenges
You know the old adage, “Crime doesn’t know a zip code.” It simply means that no multifamily community is immune to unwanted behavior. Loitering, drugs, violence, damage, theft, break-ins, people experiencing homelessness, and much more can all negatively impact a community. This can come in many forms, including poor reviews, resident and employee turnover, unpaid damages, higher insurance premiums and marketing expenses needed to repair that bad reputation.
Traditionally, multifamily operators have utilized a variety of security solutions to address ongoing safety concerns. Extended staff hours, discounted rent for on-site courtesy officers, and hiring guard or patrol services are common. In the past 10 years, many owners have also added access controls, surveillance cameras, and alarm systems to supplement the shortcomings of human solutions. However, with so many residents and visitors coming and going at all hours, it can be difficult to know what is normal activity and what is nefarious behavior.
When it comes to deterring trespassers, criminals and other unwanted behaviors, proactive security measures are necessary. Live video monitoring is one of the most effective security solutions for multifamily. A trained agent uses analytics-based surveillance cameras to monitor the entire property when you’re not there to help catch crimes in progress BEFORE damage occurs. These operators can issue audio warnings to intruders letting them know they are being watched and can call local authorities who often arrive on site while the suspects are still there.
