Astoria, NY (PRWEB) April 24, 2014

Metropolitan Pacific Properties, a top-rated property management company based in New York, is now sharing three key cornerstones of the “security makeovers” they implement in buildings and properties across NYC and beyond. “Security is a top priority at Metropolitan. We have one of the most robust, proactive security protocols in the industry as well as trained staff to make sure that tenants in the buildings that we manage stay safe,” says CEO Steve Osman.

Evaluating Security At Each Property And Implementing Recommendations

First, when Metropolitan takes on a new commercial property, they begin by suggesting that a trusted security company come on site to conduct a comprehensive security analysis and risk assessment. From this report, they develop a plan specifically tailored to each property in order to increase security where deficiencies exist both inside and outside the property. Property managers at the NY building management company agree that buildings must execute a security strategy adequate enough to consistently mitigate a building’s expected security risks.

Working Closely With Security Company Partners

Second, Metropolitan believes that working closely with each building's security company is essential in order to maintain a safe property in New York City.

“Management should receive security reports from the security company on a daily basis,” says Steve Osman. “That way the property manager is well-aware of any incidents that may affect the safety and security of the property and its residents. Clear, regular communications are an important part of keeping security a top priority at each property we manage.” Any reoccurring incidents can be acted on accordingly in this manner.

Leveraging New Security Technologies

Thirdly, Executives at Metropolitan say that incorporating new technology and employing first-rate security guards from a reputable company gives your property a competitive advantage that will increase its marketability and value. Being able to disseminate warnings and advisories from local authorities to residents is important for managers. To make this possible, property managers must use communication systems that are up-to-date, well serviced, and well understood by tenants.

Technological upgrades, such as Key Fobs (small security hardware devices with built-in authentication used to control and secure access to buildings), are increasingly being used. When a resident moves out (or is evicted), it is relatively easy for the manager to remove an old user and input a new user asset to the building. “The ability to control access is essential to improving property security in any location in NYC,” added Executive Brandon Osman. “We suggest thwarting unwanted visitors or non-residents proactively by putting layers of security in place to deter a potential threat. Key Fobs are recommended.”
