Property management is a hands-on job that requires a lot of attention to detail and task-juggling to be done effectively. Managing access is a huge part of keeping your properties safe and secure, making a professional locksmith company an essential part of your operations. The following are several specific locksmith services that property managers need:
1. Lock Changing and Re-Keying
Changing locks is important to do if you have previous tenants, employees, maintenance staff, or other individuals that have been given access to a lock and may not have turned in their keys. Even if you do receive all keys after terminating a relationship, the individual may have made personal copies to retain access. Changing the locks ensures you start over with a clean slate regarding access and that you can be sure no one will be able to enter a building unless you specifically give them a new key.
Rekeying locks is an option to achieve the same results for a much lower cost—this process involves simply changing the keys that work with an already-installed lock rather than switching out the entire lock for a new one.
2. Digital Lock Technology
Today’s security technology goes far beyond traditional locks and keys, and there is a wide variety of advanced digital solutions that you can use to keep your property as safe and secure as possible. Access control systems give you more control over who has access to what area and when. Common digital access solutions include key cards, key fobs, or even biometric screening technology such as fingerprint or retina scanning.
3. Master Keys
As a property manager, it’s important that you have access to all the areas necessary to perform your job well. However, different access points may have different keys, all held by different individuals, and it’s not very convenient to have a key ring with more than a dozen keys all together. The solution to this is a master key—one physical key, key card, or other solution that gives a property manager 24/7 access to all areas of a facility.
4. Security Systems
Unfortunately, a burglary happens once every 15 seconds in the United States. Because of this, you must protect your business, large or small, from what could happen in the event of a break-in. Protecting your assets is easier and more cost-effective than ever with the installation of a comprehensive security system to monitor your property 24/7. Commercial security systems reduce the risk of vandalism and theft; make your customers, employees, and/or tenants feel safer; and provide you with alerts and video recording to make it easier to track any issues that emerge.
