Residential Security Services
Security for Apartments, Condos, Co-ops and Residential Communities
Cambridge Security has specialized in providing highly qualified and courteous residential security professionals to residential environments for over 25 years. These services range from high-level concierges and doormen to uniformed officers. We can also supplement our human presence with technology solutions, such as electronic surveillance, biometric readers, and card access.
While securing the premises remains the primary priority, our concierges and doormen also take every opportunity to enhance residents’ quality of life. They are the face of your building. They not only monitor guest traffic and enforce residential conduct codes, but can also assist with receiving packages, hailing cabs and other personal services. Each of our professionals undergoes criminal-record checks and drug screening and has a confirmed employment history.
Sometimes, it’s as simple as calling a resident when a parking lot patrol finds a flat tire or notifying maintenance of burnt-out light bulbs in stairwells. This dual focus results in residences that are not only safe and secure, but also well maintained.
Quaint as it often looks, the guard house at the entrance to a gated community functions as the development’s nerve center. The security officers inside must not only manage a complex stream of visitors, deliveries and resident requests, but do so in a way that reflects the community’s personality and prestige.
Of course, setting the right tone starts with assigning the right personnel. That’s why Cambridge Security employs a four step selection process that includes an on-site orientation and training program. By investing time and resources in quality officers, Cambridge Security can provide communities with the continuity so essential to providing quality service.
Once assigned, Cambridge Security officers control entry points and patrol the grounds with vigilance and courtesy. Drawing on their experience and on their knowledge of the community, they document every incident and irregularity and report it to our 24-hour National Command Center, through which the officers and their supervisors work with the client and local law enforcement (if necessary) to resolve security threats.
