Multifamily Residential Security System Catches Fight at Houston Apartment Complex

Posted by Chris O' Rourke on May 18, 2018

A multifamily residential security system can help increase occupancy rates and income while decreasing crime rates and operational expenses. When items are stolen or a property is damaged, the management company is responsible for replacements and repairs. If criminal activities like vandalism and theft continually happen, they could hurt a property's reputation. As a result, potential tenants may not feel safe and choose to live elsewhere.

A proactive multifamily residential security system can help protect apartment complexes from these issues. Trained security operators watch multiple areas of a property simultaneously. If they see something suspicious they can activate a speaker warning. This usually is enough to deter suspects. They know they're being watched and do not want to be caught.

If the audio warning is not enough to deter criminals, the trained operators can call police. Because the surveillance video of the suspicious activity is live, it is classified as a crime in progress and its priority level is elevated. This typically results in a faster police response time.

At 6:24 a.m., a car stopped near the access gate of an apartment complex in Houston, Texas. Two men stepped out of the vehicle. The passenger shoved the driver. A female passenger attempted to diffuse the situation as other passengers exited the vehicle. The aggressive behavior intensified and the male passenger became injured. A Stealth residential security operator called Houston police and paramedics.

The driver got back in the car and drove away. Police arrived less than five minutes later. Responding officers located the aggressor and he returned to the scene. Houston paramedics arrived and took the injured man away.
