Benefits of Access Control for Multi-Tenant Buildings

Residential buildings need multi-tenant security controls that are easy to manage by both tenants and landlords. There are many benefits of having a building security management system that is easy for tenants, visitors, employees, and landlords to use. Discover these benefits with a multi-tenant access control system that meets your criteria for comprehensive remote security.

Time-saving controls at your fingertips

The more tenants and employees you have in your building, the more complex and more time-consuming it is to manage access control. Select a group of users within the app and manage their door access in bulk batches for fast and convenient access control when you need it.


The convenience of remote access

Control door locking and tenants’ access to different floors without being there or give remote access for package delivery with a one-time entry code. Our systems are cloud-based for multi-tenant access control from your phone or computer anywhere in the world.

Solving Problems with Multi-Tenant Security


Visitor Management

Unauthorized visitors are one of the most significant threats to multi-tenant security. With our access control system, tenants can allow package couriers and repair technicians on the premises and authorize entry for guests. You get a record of all activity and can grant or revoke access to tenants across various buildings or allow them to buzz their guests in with a single app.

Employees also require visitation rights, whether for managing the front desk or repairing something in an apartment. An access control system allows you to keep track of employees and limit access to rooms while receiving real-time notifications of their door access.


False Alarms

Building staff should know when a security breach occurs, and tenants must also be able to discern between an actual security breach and a false alarm. An access system allows tenants to understand when to take safety measures and contact staff to resolve the violation. You can turn off false alarms from anywhere and confirm alarm legitimacy through a live feed.

Our intelligent access control notifies landlords of any unexpected activity. You can see up to one year of activity history for each tenant across all locations, including text reports and video footage. Dig deeper into unauthorized entries and access necessary information when your security system becomes disarmed or a door is left open at one of your buildings.


Integration with Legacy Security Systems

Many landlords already have a reliable alarm system and need access control tools to complete their security system, but modern access control systems don’t always work with old legacy equipment. Removing legacy alarm systems is often complicated and costly, especially when your budget is limited.

Our access control systems are fully compatible with 11 popular security brands, so you can keep your existing alarm system and add the access control components you want. Integrating Alarm New England’s access control system with your current security system is much easier when switching security companies. Add security cameras and other equipment as your properties expand so you never have to replace an existing security system that already works for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you put a security system in an apartment?

Yes, it's easy to install and can keep you, your family, and your possessions safe. Burglars approach apartments like they do any other property type: burglars will most often attack during the day in search of empty apartments with easy access and plenty of escape routes. Many apartment burglars access the home through unsecured doors and windows. For these reasons, apartment security measures are essential.

Should I put a security camera in my apartment?

In general, most apartments will allow security cameras inside your home. However, there are a few things to keep in mind. If you do have to drill holes to install a camera, be sure to get permission from your property manager first. Plus, if you are living with others, be sure to inform them that you wish to install cameras in the unit so that all present understand what and when they are recording.

What kind of security can I get for my apartment?

Renters are significantly more likely to be burglarized than single-family homes. Burglars can roam apartment hallways with minimal risk of detection since few recognize all of their neighbors. While it’s important to cover the basics by adding locks, securing windows, and purchasing renters insurance, security systems are the best way to secure any home when you’re not in it and apartments are no exception.

Are apartment buildings safer than houses?

Depending on an apartment building’s location and number of occupied units, there’s a good chance it might be a safer place to live than a regular house. Typically apartment building owners will make an effort to protect the property with intercoms, locks, and cameras. Safety plays a significant role in a renter’s desire to sign a lease, so seeing upgrades like security systems for each unit can be the deciding factor for a prospective tenant.

Can I manage and control multiple buildings from one app?

Yes, whether you manage a few units or entire apartment buildings, our solution makes it simple. You can track who is entering and leaving your properties at any moment and allow tenants to receive notifications when a door opens or closes. Additionally, property managers can assign different codes to different people or staff members depending on their role when entering the property. Furthermore, if a code becomes compromised, it is easily deactivated to prevent further entry.

Can I view cameras, access control, and temperature alerts with the same system?

Our all-in-one solution combines typical home security features, real-time camera viewing, and smart home capabilities into a single app, providing you with a seamless end-to-end experience.

Can I easily add and remove codes for tenants?

It's standard practice to change the locks after a tenant vacates the apartment. However, this is not necessary with a keyless entry system. Instead you need only a few minutes at most to replace old codes with new ones. This saves the property owner time and money.
