The Homeowner’s Association, along with the Property Manager, have gone to extreme lengths to help make One Montreal Place a secure environment. However, there are some simple things you can do to add to the security of your unit.
- Keep a porch light on during the evening hours. This helps the courtesy guards when walking the property during the darkness. Reliant Energy states that it costs a penny each day to add extra illumination to the exterior of your unit.
- Never answer your door to strangers at any hour of the day. If a guard is on the property, alert him/her so that the grounds can be checked.
- Keep your windows and doors locked, especially when you are not at home. This also goes for units on the second and third floors.
- At any time you feel any threat, call 911 for immediate police protection.
- Solicitation of any type is not allowed on the property. Do not hesitate to contact the guard or the Management Company during the day when you are approached while on the property or in your unit.
- If you are suspicious about any car that may follow you into the property, circle the grounds but do not go directly to your assigned parking space. If you do not have a cell phone to dial 911, honk your horn until you get an occupant’s attention so that you feel safe to enter your unit.
Although One Montreal Place maintains a very good security record, every potential situation from annoyance to threatening risk cannot be anticipated. Please be cautious at all times and practice common sense whether in your unit, car, or on city roads.
