Securing Your Community with Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design

As many people return to Florida for the winter months, now is great time to reevaluate a community’s security and systems. One of the simplest ways to do so is by following the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design guidelines. Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, or CPTED (pronounced sep-ted), can be defined as how an environment is manipulated to influence behavioral effects that can reduce some types of criminal activities while also increasing the perception of safety. This ability to re-design, or re-use an existing space in a more effective way, has the potential do deter certain behaviors with improvements for how residents feel about their community, as well.

CPTED is often classified by three measures: mechanical, human or territorial, and natural. Mechanical measures are some of the most commons uses of CPTED. This approach is the utilization of technology and/or hardware. For instance, alarm systems, video surveillance, locks, or fences that create physical barriers. Structural elements like fences and locks help define a private area. When you add alarm systems, access control, and/or video surveillance, you increase that indication of privacy or a closed area at specific times.

Human, or territorial, measures are also commonly used to have a method for observing, reporting, and responding. Some examples include neighborhood watch organizations, roving patrols, gate attendants, or virtual guards. To a trespasser or potential criminal, these methods indicate a private territory, and a sense of ownership is portrayed for or on that property. (more…)

Below is a testimonial from Mia Evans., Property Manager, Casabella of Windermere.  

Envera was very easy to work with. They will walk you through the entire process pointing out a different prospective, myself, as a manager would not have thought of. The transition between two different systems was seamless. I had zero lock outs, and their system is very user friendly for my homeowners to use. I would absolutely recommend this system to anyone!

Testimonial: Resident – Aventine

Below is a testimonial from Gina T., Resident, Aventine of Miramar

I am a property owner in one of your gated communities, Aventine, and just had to let you know that I had a wonderful experience when I called your customer service dept.  I was quite ignorant as to how the gate system worked and called to find out if I could get some guidance.  I got Denise on the phone and she was very efficient and patient with me and all my questions.

 

I had to call again, and this time I spoke with Tommie – she was exceptional! Not only did she answer my other question, she helped me with the MyEnvera app.  She explained how to put in a username and my password and while on the phone, she walked me through the app to add my potential visitors.  I was so impressed at her professionalism and thoughtfulness and her patience to guide me.

 

Denise and Tommie are truly commendable customer service representatives.  I hope you will pass this on to their supervisors because they need to know how great these ladies are!

And tell them “thank you” again!
