Maintaining Building Security in the Heat of Summer: 3 Tips
Keep exterior doors closed. It may occasionally be tempting to prop open exterior doors to get a cross-breeze going in the common areas, but tenants should resist this temptation in the interest of keeping the building secure. Keeping exterior doors closed is also the environmentally-friendly option, because it keeps the air conditioning in the common areas from working overtime for nothing.
Monitor first-floor windows. If you have a first-floor unit, only keep windows and sliding glass doors open when you’re at home if they’re easily accessible from the street.
Follow standard security procedures. Summer in Chicago means grilling parties, so you may a higher volume of people asking you to buzz them into the building in the next few months. In the interest of maintaining building security, only buzz in those you know and trust.
