Whether the property is unoccupied for weeks or months, vacancy can create a surplus of security challenges. Research shows that unoccupied building spaces frequently attract crimes such as intrusion, vandalism, and theft. When unoccupied for extended periods, it can lead to crime, drug production, and more. Primarily, this is due to a lack of real-time visibility, oversight, and intervention.
No matter the location, unoccupied buildings are vulnerable without the proper physical security measures.
Not if, When
If an unoccupied building is not adequately protected, it is not a matter of if it will become a target of crime, but when. Unattended facilities face huge risks from those looking for spaces to conduct illegal activities to natural disasters such as fire. And, if not addressed, these risks lead to huge losses.
Top Risks for Unoccupied Buildings
The risks for vacant buildings are inherently high because fewer people are regularly around to spot or deter problems. Here are the top security risks for vacant or temporarily unoccupied buildings.
- Unattended leaks and water damage
Top Security Goals for Unoccupied Buildings
- Monitor and deter unauthorized visitors or activity
- Mange lawful entry
- Detect unwanted or unlawful activities before escalation.
- Prevent intrusion
