Cloud-Based Security’s Role in Supporting the Property Management Industry

If you haven’t digitized your property management operations, the cloud offers significant benefits for both landlords and tenants.

From accessing your video feed remotely to controlling access and customizing notifications, cloud-based security can boost both safety and efficiency for the property management industry. 

With cloud solutions, you can streamline your operations, reduce the need to be on-site, and support tenant safety—here’s how.

Monitor Your Properties From Anywhere

Cloud-based security gives property managers the ability to log in and monitor their video footage from anywhere with a secure internet connection. This reduces the need for managers to be on-site, and even allows you to monitor your office space and not just your rental properties.

If you need to add, remove, or update a property, it’s easy to do with the cloud. You won’t have to dramatically add or scale back your on-site hardware, allowing you to save more money and make any changes faster [1].

With remote management, you also won’t have to worry about keeping your system updated, which reduces your dependence on IT providers. The cloud will always automatically update to prevent interruptions to your feed and resolve any issues for the utmost security.

Improve Efficiency With Analytics

Not only has cloud-based security supported property managers’ ability to go remote during our current pandemic, but it’s also been beneficial in regards to continuing management of your properties [2].

Video analytics have made it possible to streamline your property management operations. Instead of relying on tenants or building employees to let you know about an issue, intelligent video analytics can detect problems in real-time and notify you accordingly.

Whether you have concerns about parking security, smoke or fire, suspicious activity, or loitering, you can customize alerts to notify you or your security team in real-time of an incident or when maintenance is needed.

Ensure Tenant Safety

Tenants need to know they’re safe when they reside at your property. You can support tenant safety even more with cloud-based security, which allows you to check cameras, receive personalized alerts, and identify problems, all remotely and in real-time.

Not only can you see what’s happening during an incident on all your cameras at a particular property, but you’ll be notified in real-time, giving you and your team the chance to respond faster. As a property manager with cloud-based security, you can even control access remotely, letting in emergency responders or approved guests and keeping out unverified visitors.

Cloud-based solutions also provide better network security, giving both you and your tenants peace of mind that video and data are secure when they reside at your property [3].
