Smart home technology makes available rentals appear occupied at all times
The goal is that your Rochester rental property will have guests, but that's not always possible. However, you need to make it appear that someone is home so your rental isn’t an easy mark for burglars. Incorporating a security system that includes home automation allows you to benefit from smart lighting, motion detection equipment, and security cameras that make your home seem lived-in.
Begin by scheduling your smart lighting to turn on at particular times of the night. Then, use your security app to notify you if your cameras notice someone prowling around your perimeter or approaching your main entrance. You have the opportunity to employ the 2-way talk functionality to make them know you can see them or arrange for your lighting to instantly turn on when a surveillance device or motion detection equipment identifies something unusual.
Protect your Rochester Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your tenants can sleep easy if they feel protected from criminals, especially when Rochester is unfamiliar territory. If a thief tries to gain entry, your home alarm system will not only sound a siren but will also alert your 24-hour monitoring team. Even if you’re not available, emergency services will be dispatched. Your monitoring experts will even act as your authorized go-between and loop you in as soon as you're able.
Besides intrusions, your monitoring center can be linked to fire alarms, water sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It is likely to be harrowing for your renter if a water heater springs a leak or a fire breaks out. You not only will be sent a smartphone notification that a potentially dangerous event has happened, but an agent is also able to authorize emergency services while you're in transit.
