Not so long ago, having a security system required drilling through the walls of your cooperative or condominium building and involved installing many spools of wire attached directly to a bulky keypad.
Sophisticated and Secure
Today’s systems are sleek by comparison, with touch-pads offering enhanced features to help manage busy multifamily lifestyles. They have evolved beyond just security breaches or fire alarms into command centers from which a resident can monitor the indoor environment of their home or a property manager can send out alerts in case of an emergency.
These newer more sophisticated security systems can perform many functions in most apartments or multi-dwelling units—with features ranging from the very basic to the very advanced. Systems can keep tabs on any number of variables, including temperature changes that might indicate that the heat is off, or a flood has occurred. These systems can even control lighting, and give homeowners the ability to add cameras to look in on loved ones and pets. Other enhancements include a message center for recorded messages.
