Did you know that according to the National Crime Prevention Council, multifamily properties are 85% more likely to be burglarized than single-family homes? A great way to help combat this is a surveillance system. There are many reasons why a surveillance system can help your multifamily asset, but it really can be summed up with: They help stop criminal and nuisance behavior.

The best way a surveillance system can help stop criminal and nuisance behavior is by providing you with identifiable evidence. Of course, that is only true if your recordings can be used to identify anything. A lot of times cameras can go out of focus, become obstructed, or simply stop recording. What if everything is working correctly but now you have 4 cameras at 4 hours apiece now to watch? Do you and your staff have time to do that?

Those are just some of the ways the fully managed video surveillance service that Watchtower Security provides, can be a true benefit. Not only does Watchtower Security review footage for you when an incident occurs, but they are also continually monitoring the health of the equipment. That way they can ensure that if something does occur in your community, you will have the evidence needed to identify the responsible party(s).
