Smart home technology makes available rentals look occupied
The goal is that your Fort Lauderdale rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that isn’t likely to always be possible. Nevertheless, you always want to give an impression that people are present so your rental isn’t an easy mark for prowlers. Implementing a security system with home automation gives you the chance to take advantage of smart lights, motion detection equipment, and security cameras that make your home look lived-in.
Start by programming your smart lights to turn on at particular times of the evening. You will also want your security app to alert you if your video cameras notice an unwanted guest prowling in the shadows or approaching your main entrance. You then are able to use the 2-way talk capability to make them aware that they’re being watched or set your lighting to automatically illuminate when a surveillance device or motion detection equipment identifies questionable movement.
Protect your Fort Lauderdale Airbnb with 24/7 monitoring
Your occupants will be more relaxed if they feel protected from intruders, especially when Fort Lauderdale is somewhat unfamiliar. When a robber makes an effort to invade your property, your home alarm system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also alert your 24-hour monitoring agents. Even if you’re not available, assistance will be on its way. Your monitoring experts can even act as your point person and loop you in when you're available.
Along with home invasions, your monitoring team can link to fire alarms, water sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It is likely to be harrowing for your visitor if flooding occurs or something catches fire. You not only will get a phone update that a potentially dangerous event has happened, but the monitoring agent will also arrange for assistance while you're en route.
