Home automation makes empty properties appear occupied at all times
The goal is that your rental property will be occupied, but that won’t always be the case. However, you should strive to give an impression that guests are there so your Airbnb isn’t targeted by prowlers. Installing home automation into your property’s security allows you to take advantage of smart lighting, motion detection equipment, and video cameras that make your lodging look inhabited.
You can put your plan in motion by programming your smart lighting to come on at specified times of the night. Then, use your security app to alert you if your video cameras detect an unwanted guest lurking in the shadows or approaching your main entrance. You have the opportunity to take advantage of the two-way audio feature to make them aware that they’re being watched or program your smart lights to instantly turn on when a surveillance device or motion sensor identifies something unusual.
Protect your rental property with around-the-clock monitoring
Your tenants will have more peace of mind if they are safeguarded from criminals, particularly when is somewhat unfamiliar. When a robber attempts to invade your property, your security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also ping your 24/7 monitoring professionals. Now, no matter where you are, help will be on its way. Your monitoring experts can even act as your primary contact and communicate with you whenever you're available.
In addition to home invasions, your monitoring center can be linked to fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It can be upsetting for your visitor if flooding occurs or a fire breaks out. You will then get a phone update that an emergency has happened, but an agent will also coordinate assistance while you're on the way.
