Apartment Complex Crime Prevention

Security Cameras for Management Control and Safety

Apartment Surveillance

For any property manager or apartment complex owner, crime prevention is of the utmost importance. Criminal activity can negatively impact the residents of your community and make it less desirable for potential future tenants. With a camera security system, you can both deter crime, and make your community more appealing for those looking for a place to live.

Criminals and burglars look for easy targets with no security systems or cameras. Problem residents also seek spaces where there is no supervision in which to create trouble. There is also asset protection to consider. Valuable property like air conditioning and condesing units can be a target for theft. So it’s clear — having a security camera system in your apartment complex is key, but how do you choose the right one?

Smart Parking Lot Security Cameras

Parking lots can be a common pain point for apartment managers and complex owners. Many incidents, including car and car/pedestrian accidents, vandalism, and burglary can occur in these areas, and having a physical security presence there 24/7 isn’t always an option.



A security camera system can help fill in the gaps of time when incidents occur, but you aren’t present. Having security camera videos can aid in everything from insurance claims to police investigations, and when conspicuously placed in high-traffic areas, help residents feel secure at all hours. Camera Security Now has installed parking lot cameras in many businesses and apartment complexes, and can make recommendations on the best system for your needs.

Keep Common Areas Safe

Common Area Surveillance

Areas like pools, fitness centers, laundry areas, and mail areas usually experience high volumes of resident traffic and should be monitored. Having a robust cameras security system makes residents feel more comfortable visiting these areas at night and builds a feeling of security.


Having a system in areas like pools and gyms is critical when it comes to capturing accidents and incidents that may occur. Keeping an eye on common areas is another aspect of running a complex that a manager needs to think about — but it doesn’t need to be a complicated one.

Remote Monitoring

Remote Apartment Surveillance

Apartment complexes need 24/7 monitoring, but as a complex manager or owner, there are only so many hours a day that you can dedicate to on-premises activity. A security camera system lets you check in on your complex and different areas day or night, from anywhere.


Tenant issues or emergencies can be monitored immediately upon learning of them if they are in common places, rather than having to drive to the complex unsure of what the situation is. The benefit of having a camera system is the peace of mind you’ll feel knowing that you can keep an eye on things anytime.

Frequently Asked Questions For Apartment Security Systems

Cost Of Camera System
What does a typical camera security system cost?

Our experts will work with your budget and help you find the best products to accomplish your security goals, weather you're a home owner, a small businessman, or a large multinational corporation.

Compact Security Storage
What are compact ways my security footage can be stored?

When video from a security camera is stored on the hard drive of a Network Video Recorder (NVR) it is always compressed. The effectiveness of that compression determines the amount of video the hard drive can store before it becomes full and the older video then is overwritten. This relationship determines the "retention period", usually expressed in days of video, of an NVR system. The current and most effective compression algorithm is H.265. The most compact way to store your footage be sure to use both security cameras and an NVR that support H.265 compression.

Remote View Security Cameras
How do I view my cameras remotely?

You can use your computer, laptop, cell phone, or other mobile device to remotely view your camera system. Internet access is required where the security cameras are installed and where remote viewing is desired.
