You want your residents and their assets to be protected, right? Are you, as a property manager, taking steps to provide that protection in your garage areas? If not, don’t fret! Read this post to educate yourself on the basics of garage security systems and learn why your rental property needs one. By the time you finish reading, you’ll have plenty of information to get you started!
What is a garage security system?
A garage security system is a solution that controls access to your property’s parking garage. One of the many benefits of such a system is that it prevents unauthorized people from getting access into the building through the garage. Additionally, your residents, visitors, and more will have a safe space to park their vehicles! Lastly, installing video surveillance cameras throughout the garage will allow you or your staff to review footage from previous incidents and take action!
Why do I need it?
Well…do you want your building to be at risk for bad reviews due to residents’ vehicles frequently being damaged or broken into? No. So clearly, it’s necessary to avoid car-related theft on your property! Garage security will give your residents reassurance that their vehicle is protected, enhancing the resident experience and ensuring that those leases will definitely be renewed!
How much is it?
The price of a garage security system can range from $200 to $2000, but it will most likely depend on the dimensions of the system you choose. Do you already have a garage gate or door? Is it automatic? If your answer is no, then you should totally invest in an automatic gate or door, but be sure it’s compatible with the garage security system you choose!
Four types of garage access control systems
After reviewing your garage security needs, now you can decide the type of garage access control system to install.
Most common types of garage security systems:
- Garage door openers
- Key card systems
- Vehicle tag recognition systems
- Smartphone-based garage security systems
How do garage security systems work?
No garage security system is the same, but the feature they all have in common is requiring drivers to verify their identity to enter. When the system verifies their identity, the garage gate or door will open. See how easy it is?
