Our turnkey alarm amenity programs have made it the top choice for hundreds of thousands of in-unit alarm systems across the country.

When you have Protection 1 multifamily security systems in place at your multifamily property, you have a powerful leasing tool that provides big benefits for owners, managers and residents. You are providing an important amenity to offer prospective residents for leasing and existing residents for renewals.

Increase Occupancy

Industry surveys indicate that residents’ feelings of safety play a big role in where they choose to live. Having a security system amenity can help close more leases and achieve faster lease-ups.

Generate Higher Rents

Residents are deeply concerned about safety and security. Having a multifamily security system is important and residents willingly pay extra for this valuable amenity.

Renters Are Willing to Pay More Rent for Additional Security Amenities

Reduce Turnover

When residents regularly use our easy-to-operate systems, they are reminded of the advantages of living at your property.

Improve Property Curb Appeal

Having a visible and active security system will help deter objectionable traffic and encourage prospective residents to inquire about your property.

Offer Residents Peace of Mind

Residents know that monitored security systems are a proven deterrent to crime, even in the safest neighborhoods.

Enhance Your Community Image

Offering multifamily security as an amenity can solidify your community reputation, showing that you value your investment and take pride in protecting your tenants and their assets.

Go Green

Green buildings are in demand and certification allows for a premium price to residents. Protection 1 offers a green alarm amenity that uses wireless technology with a battery recycling system in place.
