A smart security system makes vacant units appear to be inhabited
It's nice to think that your Springfield rental property will have guests, but that's not always true. Nevertheless, you should strive to give an impression that people are present so your rental isn’t a potential target for thieves. Installing a security system that includes home automation affords you the opportunity to use smart lights, motion detection equipment, and security cameras that make your rental look inhabited.
Begin by setting your smart lighting to come on at specific hours of the day. You will also want your security app to notify you if your exterior cameras spot an intruder hiding in the shadows or coming to your primary entry. You have the opportunity to take advantage of the talk feature to make them aware that you're watching or set your lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion sensor discerns suspicious activity.
Protect your Springfield Airbnb with 24/7 monitoring
Your renters will have more peace of mind if they have protection against intruders, specifically when Springfield is not familiar to them. If a robber tries to gain entry, your home alarm system will not only sound a siren but will also ping your 24-hour monitoring agents. Even if you’re not available, emergency services will be dispatched. Your monitoring agents can even act as your point person and patch you in as soon as you're free.
In addition to intrusions, your monitoring team can link to fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It is likely to be distressing for your renter if a water heater springs a leak or a fire breaks out. Not only will you get a smartphone alert that an emergency has occurred, but a representative is also able to arrange for assistance while you're on the way.
