Better Security for Commercially Managed Properties
Commercially managed properties, whether retail, office or apartment buildings, are commonly tasked with security challenges related to trespassing, loitering and crime, which deteriorate peace-of-mind and open the door to crime.
There are a few fundamental precautions commercial property managers can take to help better protect people, property and physical assets. First, understand and identify potential threats based on your facility’s specific location, and how they can impact business operations. It’s also important to assess what preventative measures may be working better than others at commercially managed properties in your area.

Commercially managed properties are often hard to secure due to:
- Large perimeter areas to monitor and secure
- Multiple points of entry
- Unfrequented areas offering privacy or shelter
- Availability of resources (retail goods, personal property, mail rooms, waste and recycling)
- Anonymity due to high volume of occupants and visitors
One proven tactic is to minimise threats and liabilities is to keep problems from entering your facility or business. This can be achieved in several ways at the perimeter and building entrances, within entry lobbies, and at stairwells, elevators, and tenant entries.
One of the most frequently sought solutions is to deploy video surveillance cameras, which can help provide wide area situational awareness. The problem is that cameras don’t prevent crime – they only document it – but only if they’re operational, continuously monitored, and properly placed at the time of the incident. Even the use of security guards has limitations, as they can’t be everywhere or monitor everything at once, are often not properly trained in preventive tactics, and are subject to everyday distractions.
