Did you know that the annual crime rate for property theft in Georgia is around 189,000 instances? As an owner, manager, or landlord, you know you need a strong security system. Not only will it help everyone feel at ease, but it will also ensure you have low tenant turnover.
Apartment security systems are complex and sometimes daunting to consider. There are hundreds of security systems and companies out there, so how do you choose one? Do you really need a system that covers everything or are apartment security camera systems sufficient? Keep reading below to get the answers to your questions and discover why you need a comprehensive security system today:
An apartment security system is the software, equipment, and other measures taken to mitigate and manage risks at an apartment complex. These security systems can be simple or complex, depending on the needs of each individual building. For example, a building with 50 units will need a higher level of security than one with four units.
There are many benefits to installing an apartment security system, ranging from peace of mind to intruder prevention. Not only does a security system protect your team members and other assets, but it also helps your tenants feel more secure. These are important when running an apartment complex. Other key benefits of apartment security systems includes:
Tenants are much more loyal and respectful when they feel their safety is a priority. Building trust with tenants can take time, but installing a security system is a big step in the right direction. It also creates a better experience when they trust the property management team.
A security system makes you less of a liability with insurance companies, but it also may protect you in a lawsuit. If you have taken the proper measures to protect your tenants and their belongings, you’re much less likely to be at fault when theft does happen.
An apartment complex with a security system has a higher property value. And people will generally pay more in rent when they know the property is protected. This is especially true for older tenants or those with young children. Safety is a priority and installing a security system will increase the value of your apartment complex.
Intruders and other criminals are often deterred from breaking in when they see the apartment complex has a security system. This is also true for employees or tenants who may try to steal from other tenants. A security system lets everyone know you mean business about the safety of your building and its occupants.
If an emergency does happen, you have video surveillance to provide to law enforcement. This is important to prosecute intruders or criminals that did somehow enter your building. As strong as your security system is, a tenant could bring someone home who has ill intentions. A security system ensures you have proof.
An apartment complex with a security system is much more appealing to potential tenants than one without. This is especially true in areas with high crime rates. A security system is a great way to make sure occupancy stays high.
Apartment security systems create peace of mind in a few different ways. First, tenants know that potential intruders are likely going to keep going when they see the surveillance cameras. Second, tenants also know the property managers have their safety as a priority and will find comfort in knowing their homes are monitored 24/7. And last, it allows your employees to feel safe at work. This is important to keep employee turnover low and morale high.
Apartment security systems are complex. There are many factors that go into creating a security system to meet the industry’s specific needs. When you work with TTD Security Systems, your system may have one or all of the following components:
Apartment complex security cameras are a must for most systems. Surveillance allows apartment complex owners or managers to constantly monitor what happens on the property. This is helpful in keeping tenants, your property, and employees safe. It’s important to choose apartment security systems with cameras.
At TTD Security Systems, our surveillance cameras have the following benefits:
Our digital cameras capture high-resolution, crystal-clear images. For customers with analog systems, we collaborate to create a hybrid solution that will gradually become a fully digital one over time.
Perimeter protection is the security measures taken to protect the outside of the building. These security solutions often combine above-ground and below-ground sensors, lighting, gates, fences, and signage to let potential intruders know the property is under watch. This tends to deter potential crimes because intruders do not want to break into a building that is too complicated or where they are likely to be caught.
Security systems can last for years to come with the proper maintenance schedule. Preventive maintenance ensures your equipment and software are updated and working properly through regular assessment and repair.
Sometimes, the systems do malfunction and need repair outside of the maintenance schedule. TTD Security Systems offers both of these services to keep your security system in top working order.
Access control solutions allow you to closely monitor the traffic in specific areas. TTD Security Systems has two options for access control: card or biometric readers.
Card readers use a device to scan the cards employees are assigned to allow or deny entrance. These are used on doors, elevators, cabinets, and drawers to protect sensitive information or assets. The database records every transaction so you always know who was present and when. You can easily add or remove users from the system to maintain a high level of security.
Biometric readers work the same way, only they scan retinas, hands, or fingerprints to allow or deny access. Both types of readers protect your assets and control who has access to them.
