What comes to mind when you think of community security? For many, it’s alarms, guards, and gates. While these components definitely play a role in securing a community, not every community needs a full-time guard or a gate. However, every single community has security needs, and many times it's as simple as determining who can access which parts of the community.
This week, our Account Executive of Security Management, Ryan Lozano, covers the basics of security in his webinar, Community Security 101. In this webinar, Ryan walks attendees through difference between credentialed access (controlling who can go where in your community and when they can access these areas) and visitor management (tracking everyone who enters your community and why they’re there including guests, residents, renters, visitors, and vendors).
Ryan stresses how security should be preventative, and that by having the right tools in place, you can reduce the chances for opportunistic crime. The right tools include both software and hardware, which Ryan shows how these two components work together to keep communities safe. It’s important to find a certified dealer to help identify the hardware needs of your community. Since hardware is a big investment, Ryan provides tips to help you properly vet dealers.
