Because multi-tenant housing includes so many different configurations of living environments, understanding the inherent risk of each property and building to create a plan that addresses these risks is foremost in the minds of Pacific Fire & Security consultants and design engineers when providing our multi-tenant housing clients, a security and life safety system that will accommodate their budget.
Pacific Fire & Security approaches the creation of a custom security system in buildings that house multiple tenants with a three-pronged strategy consisting of life safety, access control and video surveillance systems. Life safety systems are required by building codes and therefore mandatory, access and video are discretionary but not necessarily equal. Installing a video surveillance camera without access control will not prevent unwanted entrance into a building, the former may be a passive deterrent while the latter, an active deterrent.
Priority with a mind toward budget limits requires that your Pacific Fire & Security consultant understands what is most important to your situation. Is your concern highest for property damage or for safety? If property damage holds priority than a video system becomes a powerful tool for investigation and investigatory efforts after the fact. However, if safety is the priority, a proactive access control system will better serve you as it physically limits who has access to the property.
In a perfect world using all three prongs would be ideal in creating the best fire alarm and security surveillance system for every apartment or condominium, however planning considerations and budgetary constraints means Pacific Fire & Safety’s NICET trained design engineers will create the most effective system today with future scalability in mind. Additionally, we can also design and expand or upgrade fire alarm and security systems that build off existing system components.
