The primary role of a security assessment is to plan, execute, and retrofit a security system to enhance its efficiency, performance, and usefulness. An upgraded security system may also be required upon the completion of a site survey which will define your security needs and the critical points of your existing security system for your multifamily complex or condo building.
Security system design relies entirely on the security planning and design of a security system layout plan. This stage requires the consultants to communicate with the clients so they can design the most fitting security system. At Forbel, we work with the best security equipment brands to deliver successful results.
CAD drawings are essential to any type of alarm system design. Condo security systems rely on efficient drawings that can paint a comprehensive picture when it comes to access control system design, video surveillance system design, and role-based access control systems.
Once the planning stage is complete and the CAD drawings are in place, the next step is security implementation. It is key to implementation to consider integrated security systems and communicate with condo property managers to obtain the best results.
When implementing a security system design, it is critical to follow the blueprints and communicate with all parties, from the property manager to supplier and installers. It is important to oversee the implementation of the security system to ensure the most efficient and secure system.

How can I make apartments more secure?

To make your complex in Chicago (IL) and adjacent areas more secure, you must: - Eliminate (wherever possible) all dark spots by adding more lighting in the building and outside (this includes parking lots, storage rooms, mailrooms, and other areas) - Determine the best placement for security cameras and sensors to eliminate “blind spots” - Install reliable and effective security and video surveillance systems.

What is the best alarm system for a residential building?

The best alarm systems for apartment complexes are the ones that are robust yet easy to manage and control. You don’t want to get an expensive security system that requires a professional operation. We recommend installing reliable CCTV solutions from Forbel. Our specialists will set up the cameras and sensors for you in optimal spots around your property and even train you and your staff on how to use them.

Why is access control important for vast multifamily complexes?

Tenants need to have a sense of control over who can access the premises. Multifamily complexes are often populated with individuals who have different schedules; however, security is still important to everyone living in the complex.

Does Forbel provide a turnkey security solution for condos?

We value communication every step of the way from the genesis of the security system design, through the planning stage, to the implementation and execution of the project for any condo or multifamily property.
