A smart security system makes available rentals look occupied
Of course, you hope that your Cleveland rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that won’t always be true. Nevertheless, you always want to make it appear that someone is home so your Airbnb isn’t an easy mark for burglars. Installing home automation into your property’s security allows you to use smart light bulbs, motion detection devices, and surveillance systems that make your lodging seem occupied.
Begin by scheduling your smart lighting to switch on at specified times of the night. Then, use your security app to warn you if your cameras detect someone lurking in the dark or walking toward your main entrance. You have the opportunity to take advantage of the two-way audio feature so they know you can see them or set your smart lights to automatically illuminate when a surveillance device or motion detector uncovers something unusual.
Protect your Cleveland rental property with 24-hour monitoring
Your occupants will have more peace of mind if they feel protected from intruders, particularly when Cleveland is unfamiliar territory. In the event a prowler tries to invade your property, your home alarm system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also alert your around-the-clock monitoring agents. Even if you’re not available, emergency services will be dispatched. Your monitoring experts can even act as your primary contact and communicate with you whenever you're available.
Besides home invasions, your monitoring team can be connected with fire alarms, water sensors, and CO detectors. It can be distressing for your renter if a water heater springs a leak or something catches fire. You will then receive a cell phone update that a potentially dangerous event has taken place, but the monitoring agent can also arrange for assistance while you're in transit.
