The Problem

Property managers, rehabbers and building owners face many threats to their investments. Issues like vandalism, job-site theft, and even squatters top the list of troubles for vacant investment properties. However, what happens when you can’t commit to a multi-year agreement for security equipment and monitoring at a temporary vacancy or rehab?

The Cost

Unfortunately, the financial loss from property crimes to investors is increasing. According to the FBI, in 2018, there were 7,694,066 property crimes in the United States. Such threats reduce your profit.  Including, driving up the cost of the job and maintenance.  The moment you leave your building you know the risks.

Installing permanent wired security is not practical in these instances.  You still need real security.  Alarm Detection Systems, Inc. (ADS) has the answer. We have been protecting lives and property since 1968. Protecting valuable vacant structures is a constant concern.

The Solution

There are no wires to install, and we include professional monitoring via a wireless radio network. There is no phone line or costly cellular signal needed!
