Home automation makes available rentals look occupied
It's nice to think that your Lafayette rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that's not always true. However, you should strive to make it appear that guests are there so your place isn’t a potential target for thieves. Incorporating a security system that includes home automation affords you the opportunity to use smart light bulbs, motion detection equipment, and video cameras that make your lodging look occupied.
Begin by programming your smart lighting to come on at particular times of the night. Then, use your cell phone app to warn you if your exterior cameras notice an unwanted guest prowling in the shadows or coming to your primary entry. You can employ the two-way audio functionality to make them aware that they’re being watched or program your lights to instantly turn on when a surveillance device or motion sensor uncovers questionable movement.
Protect your Lafayette rental property with 24-hour monitoring
Your occupants can sleep easy if they feel protected against criminals, particularly when Lafayette is not familiar to them. If a prowler tries to gain entry, your home security system will not only sound a siren but will also alert your 24/7 monitoring team. Now, no matter where you are, assistance will be dispatched. Your monitoring experts can even act as your primary contact and loop you in whenever you're free.
In addition to intrusions, your monitoring team can be connected with fire alarms, flood detectors, and CO detectors. It can be harrowing for your visitor if flooding occurs or something catches fire. Not only will you get a phone alert that an emergency has taken place, but a representative will also coordinate emergency services while you're in transit.
