3 Tips for Building Owners and Landlords to Improve Building Security and Safety
As a building owner, your aim should be to keep your tenants as safe as possible. This is true for both residential and commercial properties. Here are 3 tips to help you improve your building safety and security.
1. Install a Quality Security System
No property should be without a quality security system. A security system can deter thieves and other potential criminals. It can also improve the peace of mind of your occupants. Imagine knowing that windows have glass break sensors, that doors have alarms, and that there are restricted access systems installed. You will feel even more secure.
2. Install Motion-Activated Floodlights & Other Lighting
Floodlights should be installed in prime locations on the exterior of the building. From the perimeter fencing to the parking area, gates and garages, you should have adequate illumination. As they are motion-activated, they can also help to keep your energy costs in check.
All areas should be well-lit, inside and outside. You can use timed-lights to ensure they come on at appropriate times. Proper lighting also helps with identifying people on CCTV cameras. Because of this, it’s essential that lighting is installed in appropriate areas and at the right heights. This is one of the many reasons why you should get help from a security firm when installing security lighting.
3. Get Remote Monitoring
There are two ways that you can get remote monitoring of your property. The first is with the security system supplied by ATP Alarms. It allows property owners to remotely access their security systems and keep up-to-date on what’s happening. The second is a 24/7 central monitoring facility to keep an eye on things when you’re not able to.
