A smart security system makes empty properties look occupied
Of course, you hope that your Houston rental property will be occupied, but that isn’t likely to always be true. Despite this fact, you always want to give an impression that someone is home so your Airbnb isn’t an easy mark for thieves. Implementing a security system that includes home automation affords you the opportunity to take advantage of smart light bulbs, motion sensors, and surveillance systems that make your rental appear inhabited.
You can put your plan in motion by scheduling your smart lights to turn on at particular times of the day. Then, use your cell phone app to warn you if your exterior cameras notice an intruder lurking in the shadows or walking toward the front door. You have the opportunity to take advantage of the 2-way talk capability so they know you can see them or program your lights to automatically come on when a camera or motion detector uncovers suspicious activity.
Protect your Houston rental property with 24/7 monitoring
Your renters can sleep easy if they are safeguarded from intruders, particularly when Houston is somewhat unfamiliar. If a prowler attempts to break in, your home alarm system will not only sound a siren but will also ping your 24/7 monitoring team. Even if you’re not available, help will be on its way. Your monitoring experts are capable of acting as your point person and loop you in whenever you're able.
Along with intrusions, your monitoring hub can be linked to fire alarms, flood detectors, and CO detectors. It can be harrowing for your visitor if a water heater springs a leak or something catches fire. You will then get a smartphone notification that a potentially dangerous event has occurred, but the monitoring agent can also coordinate help from emergency personnel while you're on the way.
