Property management companies responsible for multiple buildings or residential communities are judged on many factors: Filling vacancies, collecting rent and other dues, enforcing policies, property improvements, and more. The more important responsibility, however, is the safety of tenants and residents.
Whether managing multi-unit residential complexes, office buildings, or other properties where people live and work, ensuring safety and security can be challenging. It’s important to carefully assess risk, evaluate overall costs, and consider how to proactively manage security issues across multiple properties that you manage.
Selecting the right security solutions can be daunting, particularly if property management companies must address the needs of multiple locations, lack a large IT staff, or cannot have dedicated staff viewing live video 24/7. However, one bad incident – vandalism, theft, or worse, a violent act – can trigger costly maintenance, lawsuits and even cause irreparable damage to the company’s reputation.
