When someone is looking to buy or rent a new house, all they look for is how secure the place is and it becomes a top priority especially when they have kids. According to recent studies, it has shown that gated communities are a way safer place when compared to standalone buildings.
I’ve listed out a few reasons why gated premises are a safer place to raise children
1. Monitored Surroundings
The whole community will be under the surveillance of a CCTV camera. The cameras are installed in every corner of the community especially in the isolated areas so that every place is monitored and captured. This way the number of crime rates inside a community is always reduced when compared to an open neighbourhood. So, no matter where your kid is he/she will always be monitored.
2. Heavy Security
Apart from the security hardware, there are a lot of security guards appointed at different areas of the community. The security is usually heavy near the kid’s play area and other event areas ensuring that the kids are always safeguarded. The main gate is another area where there is more security making sure only authorized visitors to enter the premises.
3. Kid Check In And Check Out Monitored
Gated communities have now updated to much more reliable security and community management software rather than relying on human work. This software provides many interesting features and one of them is kid security. Sometimes, without the notice of the guard the kid exits the main gate and no one is informed about it. In such cases software like these help you major, it notifies the guard and the parent as soon as the kid checkouts the premises.
4. Visitors Monitored
Gated communities are quite keen on monitoring the visitors/workers that enter the community. The age-old conventional method of using pen and paper is no longer in use or effective. Every community has now upgraded to a visitor management software which lets them monitor and track the entries/exits of the visitors with ease. So, every time there is a visitor at the gate, all the residents of that particular flat are notified and asked for approval. The visitor is allowed only if the entry is accepted. This way you know that only authorized people to enter and there is no chance of any suspicious activity to take place.
Providing a safe environment to your kid is a full-time job on its own. But today in the real estate front there are several options available to secure your child. And the gated community is one of the best options available. It’s not only great for the type of security it provides but also for the kind of facilities and amenities too.
