What are the most important electrical security systems for student accommodation?

If you are a student accommodation provider, one of the most important things to consider is the safety and security of your tenants. And there are a number of electrical security systems that can help you achieve this. These include:

  • Electronic door locks
  • Security lighting and CCTV
  • Motion activated lighting for shared spaces

Electronic door locks for student accommodation

Installing electronic door locks in your student accommodation can be a very effective way to keep the property and those inside safe and secure. There are a number of different and effective options for electronic door locks and these are incredibly user-friendly. Depending on the electronic locking system you choose, people without an electronic key card or the key code will not be able to enter the property, ensuring maximum safety.

Security lighting and CCTV for student accommodation

Security lights around the perimeter of your student accommodation can be a very good idea for improving area security. Whether your students are arriving back from a late night party or an all night study session, they need to be safe entering and leaving the student accommodation at all hours. Not only can security lighting help to prevent common accidents like slips, trips and falls, but this can also prevent people from hanging around outside your property, deterring crime.

Installing an effective CCTV system can also be a good idea and this can be used alongside the security lighting to deter crime and catch criminals, increasing the safety of your property and tenants.
