What’s the definition of a Property Manager? A quick Internet search provides lots of definitions, including a person responsible for setting and collecting the rent, finding and screening tenants, handling leases, taking care of service/maintenance issues, processing move-ins and outs, dealing with evictions and more. Phew, the list could go on forever which is why a property manager’s job is never completely done.
Property managers are asked to be many things, so why not add security manager to the list? Given everything a property manager has to do, you would think having to be a security manager would make for more work. But in reality and thanks to advanced technology, managing the building security through a remote managed access control system can be less work! In fact, it can actually reduce the number of hours spent managing a traditional lock and key system while improving the overall level of security and convenience for tenants.
