Peace of mind
Tenants and visitors moving about your property, should feel safe and comfortable. Security cameras can go a long way toward providing peace of mind for your tenants by deterring would-be criminals and vandalism. Installing cameras in areas like hallways, elevators, streets, gyms, playgrounds, entrances, exits, courtyards, and green spaces allows occupants to congregate for communal activities with the knowledge that their safety is a priority for complex management.
For potential thugs and vandals, CCTV surveillance cameras in placed in plain view can be all the deterrent needed to discourage them. Most burglaries, thefts, and vandalism are crimes of convenience that are committed when there is a low risk of getting caught. CCTV Security cameras greatly increase the risk that a criminal activity will be identified while in progress or the criminals will be identified – thus decreasing the likelihood that crimes will occur if you post your cameras in view of potential intruders. Remote viewing using IP enabled cctv security cameras allows you to access your camera footage from almost anywhere, via your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Boost occupancy – and rent
Residential safety goes a lot further than just building good relationship between tenants and the apartment management. Believing that management truly has the best interests of their occupants at heart regarding security is a major contributing factor when tenants are deciding where to rent or buy. Additionally, residents of apartments that make them feel safe generally end up being tenants for a long time.
Many tenants are also willing to pay extra for the added security value provided by your installation of a CCTV camera surveillance system. When conducting tours and open houses, be sure to point out to potential tenants or buyers the functionality of your security camera system and how it contributes to the health and vitality of your apartment community.
