Well-secured multifamily buildings can be a joy to live in and manage. But with many different types of people coming and going, security is definitely a challenge with any apartment, condominium or senior living facility.
How can you protect your investment as a landlord and help the families who rent or buy from you to feel more comfortable living in a multi-person structure or community? Mobile Video Systems Advanced Solar Surveillance System CCTV video surveillance is an excellent way to accomplish both goals. Deploying Mobile Video Systems for your building can both protect property and residents by reducing theft and vandalism.
Just the presence of video caméras can reduce criminal activity. If property crimes do occur, law enforcement officers are more likely to catch and prosecute the perpetrators when they hâve video evidence.
Benefits of Installing Mobile Video Systems in Multifamily Buildings In several ways, CCTV can aid in making families feel more secure in the apartment or condo building you own or manage. This leads to several benefits to the landlord, including the following:
More consistency in occupancy rates. When security devices are installed in the building, it becomes more attractive to families and other désirable tenants. Deterring crime leads to families staying in their units for longer periods so there is less turnover, and you hâve fewer expenses connected to finding new tenants and completing new rental applications.
Higher potential rents. The amenity of increased surveillance is one that many people will pay more for. Even in neighborhoods that hâve low crime rates, renters are willing to spend more per month to keep it that way. Potential renters recognize that video surveillance can reduce the likelihood of break-ins.
Asset protection. You want to make sure that others — especially those who are not tenants — are not vandalizing or damaging the common areas of your building. Even complexes with access control may get the occasional guest or unauthorized person on the premises.
Better community image. When people see that your building has security, it créâtes a positive connection. That might not translate to an immédiate rental, but it can make potential renters identify your facility as one that is more désirable. When the time cornes to find a new living situation, they'll think positively of your multifamily complex. As well, when you install additional security, other landlords may follow suit, leading to a better neighborhood with lower crime.
Video surveillance is quickly becoming a must for landlords who want to protect their tenants and their property. Mobile Video Systems is a cost-effective way to prevent costly repairs that must be made in the case of vandalism or theft. Both you and your residents benefit from a well-planned video security System in the common or public areas of the apartment building and grounds.
