Trespassers And Squatters

Article Summary: 

In urban high-rise communities, trespassers and squatters can be a recurring problem, as the same attributes that make the area desirable to live in also attract those in need of shelter or seeking to cause mischief. To protect against theft, damage, and misuse, it is important to make changes to the physical environment, such as ensuring good lighting in common, low traffic, and isolated areas. LED lighting is preferable for security, as it is energy-efficient, longer-lasting, and provides superior illumination for security cameras and facial recognition. Painting walls and ceilings white or off-white can increase reflected light, eliminating shadows and making areas less attractive to trespassers.
