Smart home technology makes empty properties appear occupied at all times
The goal is that your Montgomery rental property will have guests, but that won’t always be possible. Nevertheless, you should strive to make it appear that people are present so your Airbnb isn’t an easy mark for thieves. Incorporating a security system with home automation affords you the opportunity to use smart lighting, motion sensors, and surveillance systems that make your lodging look lived-in.
You can put your plan in motion by setting some lights to come on at particular times of the day. Then, use your security smartphone app to alert you if your cameras detect an intruder prowling around your perimeter or approaching your primary entry. You have the opportunity to employ the 2-way talk feature to make them know they’re being watched or set your lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion detection equipment identifies something unusual.
Protect your Montgomery rental property with 24/7 monitoring
Your renters will be more relaxed if they are safeguarded against burglars, specifically when Montgomery is unfamiliar territory. When a robber attempts to break in, your security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your 24-hour monitoring professionals. Even if you’re not available, assistance will be forthcoming. Your monitoring experts can even act as your point person and loop you in when you're available.
In addition to break-ins, your monitoring center can be connected with fire alarms, flood detectors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It would be understandably distressing for your renter if a pipe bursts or a fire erupts. Not only will you receive a phone update that an urgent situation has happened, but a representative will also authorize help from emergency personnel while you're in transit.
