Why Property Managers Shouldn't Overlook Remote Monitoring

Many property managers overlook remote video monitoring services when developing their security strategy, but these services could be crucial in keeping your residents and properties safe.

According to the National Crime Prevention Council, as quoted in another article, apartments have an 85 percent greater chance of being victims of theft than a single-family homeowner or rental property.

Security for your property or apartment building must be a high priority. Crime will happen wherever there is an opportunity, and apartments are a prime target as often security measures are inadequate.  

Complexes can be hard to monitor, keeping track of everyone who comes and goes can be nearly impossible. Therefore, it’s often difficult to detect and mitigate suspicious behavior.

Keeping your residents safe and secure depends on proactive security cameras; the security experts at LotGuard discuss how remote video surveillance helps secure apartment properties.

How Remote Video Surveillance Helps Secure Apartment Properties

Remote video surveillance services that turn standard surveillance cameras into virtual security guards, able to detect criminal activity in real time, rather than being a passive recording device.  

The most effective video surveillance combines AI video analytics with human monitoring operators who can help catch suspicious activity before it becomes a problem.

For example, if a suspicious person or vehicle is loitering for too long, this will alert the analytics and send a live feed directly to the monitoring professionals.

Our surveillance units, like the LotGuard Pro Solar Surveillance Trailer, can detect this type of activity using edge-based video analytics to alert a remote surveillance operation center.

These alerts are the trigger point for a remote security response, including live or record audio addresses and/or the despatching of security teams or law enforcement.
