A smart security system makes empty properties appear to be inhabited
It's nice to think that your Rockford rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that won’t always be true. However, you need to make it seem that people are present so your place isn’t an easy mark for burglars. Installing a security system that includes home automation affords you the opportunity to take advantage of smart lighting, motion sensors, and surveillance systems that make your home look inhabited.
Start by scheduling some lights to turn on at specified times of the day. You will also set your cell phone app to warn you if your cameras detect someone prowling in the dark or approaching your main entrance. You can take advantage of the 2-way talk feature to make them aware that you can see them or program your smart lights to instantly turn on when a camera or motion detection equipment discerns questionable movement.
Protect your Rockford Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your renters will have more peace of mind if they have protection against intruders, especially when Rockford is somewhat unfamiliar. When a prowler tries to invade your property, your home security system will not only sound a siren but will also alert your 24/7 monitoring agents. Regardless of your location, emergency services will be dispatched. Your monitoring experts are capable of acting as your point person and communicate with you whenever you're able.
In addition to break-ins, your monitoring team can be linked to fire alarms, water sensors, and CO detectors. It is likely to be distressing for your visitor if a water heater springs a leak or something catches fire. You not only will receive a smartphone update that an emergency has occurred, but an agent can also arrange for help from emergency personnel while you're in transit.
