BUILDING SECURITY SYSTEM
The threat of crime is always present, and a way to protect your tenants is to install a building security system. According to the FBI crime report in 2018, almost 70,000 burglaries happened in residences in the US. If you are an owner or manager of an apartment complex, you have the responsibility of making sure everyone in the apartment is safe. There are many reasons why you should install a building security system. Financial liability can fall on you in the case of a third-party crime on your property. There is an increasing rate of tenants suing property owners for injuries from third-party crimes, and this range from $100,000 to $1 million. You can avoid this as an apartment owner by making the building safe through the installation of the multi-family security system. This will help reduce the probability of crimes happening on your property, and it will also eliminate any liability that will fall on you if a crime should occur on your property. You won’t be held responsible for anything if you can show that you have a solid and well-designed commercial security system in place.

WIRELESS VS HARDWIRED SECURITY CAMERAS
Our expert team can install both wired and wireless security cameras for your apartment based on the needs of your facility. Hardwired camera systems need cabling for both power and internet connection. We will have to drill holes and run wires and conduits through your walls.In some cases, we might have to tear out a piece of wall. Hardwired security cameras have higher security than wireless ones because they are vulnerable to hackers. They are a better choice for extensive areas and buildings with spotty wi-fi.
WIRELESS SECURITY CAMERAS
Wireless security cameras for the apartment can transmit video footage through wi-fi. The only cabling needed is to connect it to a source of power. It is also easier to install as we have to mount the camera to the wall, ceiling. We can also plug it into a power source and connect it to wi-fi using a smartphone app. It is more flexible and scalable than hardwired systems, and it has a broader range of features like data analytics and app pairing.We can provide wired and wireless, indoor and outdoor security cameras for all kinds of apartment buildings and complexes.

We offer convenient smartphone apps for security management to help you monitor your apartment wherever you go.
FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN INSTALLING APARTMENT SECURITY SYSTEMS
Object recognition and smart analytics:
You need to invest in cameras with advanced technology to identify objects and people on your property accurately.This will reduce false alarms and offer useful intelligence to your apartment complex operations.
You can decide if you want your camera visible or not. Making your cameras visible will prevent crimes as most criminals don’t like being caught on cameras.A lot of intruders check for security equipment before breaking in. They will move on if they see a high-quality security camera monitoring them.
Then you should install your cameras high enough even if you choose to make them visible. This makes them out of reach and prevents tampering and damages.
You have to protect your cameras if you are putting them in places in entrances, pools, courtyards, and parking lots. They can easily be damaged by bad weather. We equip outdoor cameras with protective casing to protect them against harm.
There are privacy laws, and this depends on the state in question. But a general rule is that cameras can only be installed in public places.Then the “public areas” depends on your state, but it can include parking garages, lots, building entrances, laundry rooms, mailrooms, administrative areas, hallways, and courtyards.Security cameras view should not include tenant doors and windows because it is a violation of privacy. Our company is familiar with state and federal laws for apartment security cameras.We can position cameras to ensure you meet the legal compliance of your state and smooth operation across large areas.

APARTMENT BUILDING INTERCOM SYSTEM
You can increase the security and value of your property by installing a high-quality apartment building intercom system. This enables the resident to communicate with visitors, let the right people into the building, and manage deliveries.With this intercom system, users inside the building can speak remotely with and even see the video of visitors buzzing in at the door before deciding if to give them access or not. This provides peace of mind as tenants are sure of whom they are getting into the building. We combine this technology with door release. This allows tenants remotely unlock the door or gate for visitors just by swiping on a phone app or pressing a button. Interior stations can be included inside tenants’ apartments or at the front desk to complement a doorkeeper or a concierge. No interior stations are necessary with a completely app-based intercom.

Property management dashboard
Elevator control to prevent tenants from coming downstairs to take the elevator with visitors
24/7 audit trails
Door release logs
WIRELESS INTERCOM SYSTEM FOR BUILDINGS
We provide the latest groundbreaking building intercom systems. Traditional hardwired ones use low voltage wires running between all stations. They can be time-consuming and costly, especially in larger systems. Wireless intercoms, on the other hand, were invented to fill these loopholes, but they are vulnerable to interceptions, and they have weaker signals. They are also prone to battery failure and tampering.Our experts can solve this. We provide modern IP intercom systems that send data through already existing IP infrastructures via an Ethernet cable. This cuts down on cabling and only requires a network cable and door strike cables.
It provides a convenient and secure solution.
INTEGRATION WITH EXISTING SYSTEMS
If you are not starting on a clean slate, you can think of any system in the building you wish to add to it. Examples, gates, doors hardware, alarms, cameras, elevators, critical card systems, and concierge stations can be and should be integrated with intercom and door release systems.If you have a lot of equipment, intercom systems will give you a flexible range of integration. </p?

These are the future of apartment building security. With these, you don’t need physical keys, these have been replaced with virtual keys and delivery PINs. You send your visitors a personal QR code on their phone, which they use to gain access into your apartment by holding it up to the entry panel.
APARTMENT BUILDING VIDEO INTERCOM ENTRY SYSTEMS
In this security system, the intercom is paired with surveillance cameras to allow you or tenants to see live video footage of visitors at the doors or hear their voice.
This can be viewed on an interior intercom station or even on a smartphone. This gives a high level of security and peace of mind to a lot of people because you know who you are letting in.We offer this security system to help landlords and tenants see who is at the door anywhere they are and at any time of the day.
