At 2:12pm a kid starts climbing the locked gate installed for apartment protection at the pool. He looks around. What he doesn’t see is the Stealth Monitoring camera that’s part of apartment complex security. A Stealth operator watches his climb. The operator activates a speaker warning to deter the impending and unauthorized pool access. The young man safely jumps down and runs away.

Apartment protection is a vital concern for condo and apartment complexes and homeowners associations due to legal claims. Apartment building owners are often legally held to a high standard of safety to provide security and protect residents and their guests. This responsibility can include negligent or harmful acts committed by residents, visitors, and criminals.
Tragedies happen all the time where apartment complexes are successfully sued for negligence when they didn’t have sufficient apartment protection. Such cases include injuries and deaths attributed to property defects, foreseeable criminal activity, animal attacks, pool drownings, car accidents, fires, and health hazards like toxic mold. As a result apartments increasingly see the need for improved security, such as video cameras and surveillance, carefully followed safety regulations, speed bumps, and pool fences.
Avoid swimming pool drownings with the following apartment protection tips.
- Put alarms on doors and windows that access pool areas
- Install a phone with programmed emergency numbers
- Have a first aid kit easily accessible
- Invest in poolside rescue equipment
- Use four-sided fencing, a minimum of five feet high, with self-closing and self-latching gates
