What's the benefit of partnering with a security firm?

October 8th, 2016

In the past, condo buildings and associations turned to community-based websites to stay on trend, keep residents socially engaged, and organize association minutes and documents. As more and more people turn to condo-living as a long-term option over houses, condo associations, managers, and developers are becoming increasing aware that they need to provide truly robust offerings to their residents. One of the most important things people look for is security.

When it comes to security, safety is of course the first thing that comes to mind. But these days, security firms are taking on numerous other responsibilities to do with condo management. These include operating the in-house guards, the daily shift log (whether it’s online or a log book), tracking visitor parking and entry instructions to the building—sometimes parcel delivery and pick-up—and of course, reporting on a daily or weekly basis.

 For many folks, the safety factors associated with condo living are a huge consideration in choosing life in a residential community. Whether it’s a secure parking lot or controlled access to a building, it’s important for all residents to feel safe. Your building’s Entry Instructions feature should be updatable from anywhere and make residents feel confident that access to the building is monitored, automated and recorded on a secure site.

In this day and age of heightened accountability, longer hours at work, and let’s face it, a competitive market, why not differentiate your security offerings from the rest?
