A Wise Investment for HOA's
Video surveillance is without a question a powerful tool for public safety, and with the increase need to do more with less, many communities are turning to video surveillance technology to cost effectively protect people, property and to control access to the community.
The demand for video installations within communities is growing rapidly. An obvious benefit of video surveillance is 24/7 monitoring of both remote areas in the community, and public locations such as pools, tennis courts, parks, and property entry points. Whether used for live monitoring, recording, or both, video has proven to be invaluable for identifying individuals, spotting criminal activity, and recording accidents and other events within communities.
While some gated communities such as, condominium complexes or assisted living centers can pay the cost of having a security guard on site, it makes much more sense to have a security surveillance system set up to ensure that there is constant vigilance, without the need for someone being there. The cameras will be able to watch over the recreation areas, and the DVRs will give home owner associations the ability to watch what happened the night before in case of vandalism. It really is an all-encompassing security system that gated communities must have.
A wise investment in a surveillance system to ensure that property and persons are kept safe within the community can save an HOA unnecessary costs. For many HOA's, this is a small price to bear in order to give their residents some peace of mind and safety. Personal injury liability is another exposure for HOAs. Recorded images or videos of incidents related to liability claims, can be invaluable in the investigative process to establish the facts rather than just claims. Slip & fall injuries around pool decks, meeting rooms, parking lots, and alike, can be quickly resolved with confidence and cost effectiveness as false claims can be denied or rejected.
