SMART SECURITY MEASURES
Properties and their residents can benefit
tremendously from the use of some of these
technologies, but it is important to understand
that they require planning, care, and ongoing
safety and dealing with potentially dangerous situations.
There are many things to consider when
deciding to deploy or upgrade existing
security-related technologies. Some of
those things include:
management to get right and to get the best

return on investment.
n Scope and coverage area.
Managing complex relationships

n Expectations as to what a particular
piece of technology can and cannot do.
n What the most appropriate equipment
is to meet your expectations.
n How the system is designed and sized
for future possible expansion.
n How to identify a qualified vendor to
not only install the technology but also
educate you on its features, functions,
capabilities, and care.

Properties and their residents can benefit tremendously from the use of some
of these technologies but it is important
to understand that they require planning,
care, and ongoing management to get right
and to get the best return on investment.
As in many other specialized areas,
an independent consultant that is wellversed in the use of these technologies
will be a beneficial resource. I encourage
property manages, developers, owners
and boards to recognize this technology
as any other part of their property's
infrastructure and to understand it will all
require planning and staging, procedures
for its operation, and budgeting for its initial purchase and ongoing maintenance,
and eventual replacement.
