Apartment Building Security
Apartment building security & residential complexes are quickly becoming prominent throughout the world as the cost of building huge mega structures decreases. The demand for living in city centers is reaching all time highs and one of the key factors for this demand is due to job availability in cities vs rural low population regions. From a standard of living perspective this is very positive for the future of human race but unique security challenges are slowly mounting.
What are the security challenges?
First, the density of the population is significantly more dense. This doesn’t mean that more conflict is occurring but due to the increased population more disturbances are occurring in the same location as opposed to less population dense areas.
Second, there is a significantly higher value of personal assets due to the sheer quantity. Protecting that property can be a huge challenge for building owners and managers.
The third challenge is increased traffic and authentication. How to determine who is a resident, a visitor, a staff member, or an intruder that is posing as an authorized person. Personnel authentication is crucial for residents as this can deter potential residents if they feel unsafe or their property is at risk.
