Smart home technology makes empty properties appear to be inhabited
Of course, you hope that your Cedar Rapids rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that's not always the case. However, you always want to give an impression that people are present so your Airbnb isn’t an easy mark for burglars. Implementing home automation into your property’s security allows you to benefit from smart lighting, motion detection equipment, and surveillance systems that make your rental look inhabited.
Begin by programming your smart lighting to come on at specified times of the night. Then, use your security smartphone app to alert you if your exterior cameras detect someone prowling in the shadows or walking toward your primary entry. You can take advantage of the 2-way talk functionality so they know you can see them or arrange for your lighting to automatically illuminate when a surveillance device or motion sensor uncovers something unusual.
Protect your Cedar Rapids Airbnb with around-the-clock monitoring
Your renters will be more relaxed if they have protection from burglars, particularly when Cedar Rapids is not familiar to them. In the event a prowler makes an effort to break in, your security 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 dispatched. Your monitoring experts are capable of acting as your primary contact and communicate with you whenever you're available.
Along with home invasions, your monitoring team can be linked to fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It would be understandably upsetting for your visitor if flooding occurs or a fire erupts. You not only will get a cell phone notification that an emergency has happened, but an agent will also coordinate help from emergency personnel while you're en route.
