5 Benefits of Security Cameras For Your Apartment Complex

5 Benefits of Security Cameras For Your Apartment Complex

When deciding on their future apartment complex, many people consider security to be a determining factor. Installing security cameras at apartment complexes is a surefire way of ensuring people feel safe enough to live in your complex. We’ve listed a few reasons why video surveillance should be installed at your property.

Reduce Liability

When injuries or damage occur in an apartment complex, you as the property owner or landlord, can be held liable. Video evidence is your best defense in the case of an incident. If a tenant claims to have broken their leg slipping on ice on the steps, you can check to see if you should be held liable.

Investing in Your Current and Future Residents

Security Cameras For Your Apartment Complex

Installing security cameras can attract more new tenants, as well as keep the existing ones, than a good parking spot can. Cameras make people feel safe, and people are more likely to rent an apartment if they feel secure. Installing cameras demonstrates to both your current and future residents that they are your first priority.

Decrease Crime

It is well known that security cameras decrease crimes like theft, vandalism, trespassing, and loitering. If a potential offender sees that there will be a record of their behavior that can be used against them, they are more wary of committing the crime, ensuring a safer living environment for residents.

Control of the Use of Parking Lots

Another popular feature of apartment complexes is an on-site, secure parking spot. However, often, non-tenants will take these reserved parking spots. Security cameras allow the monitoring of parking lots to ensure that only vehicles that belong to residents can park there. Video surveillance will better ensure unauthorized vehicles are removed.

Savings on Security Guards

Hiring security guards is a costly endeavor, but can make tenants feel that they are in a safe environment. However, for some, security guards might elicit the opposite feeling. Security guards can make people uncomfortable, which is a reason, along with the high price tag, that the best choice for safety is security cameras in apartment buildings.


If you are the owner of an apartment complex with 6+ units, increase the security of your property with a video surveillance system. Contact us at Forbel for advice.
