Smart home technology makes available rentals look occupied
The goal is that your Lexington rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that won’t always be the case. However, you should strive to give an impression that guests are there so your rental isn’t a potential target for thieves. Implementing a security system with home automation allows you to take advantage of smart lighting, motion sensors, and security cameras that make your rental look occupied.
Start by programming some lights to turn on at specific hours of the evening. Then, use your cell phone app to notify you if your video cameras spot an intruder hiding in the dark or approaching your primary entry. You have the opportunity to take advantage of the talk capability to make them aware that you're watching or arrange for your lighting to automatically illuminate when a surveillance device or motion sensor discerns questionable movement.
Protect your Lexington rental property with 24-hour monitoring
Your tenants can sleep easy if they have protection from burglars, especially when Lexington is not familiar to them. When a thief tries to break in, your home security system will not only sound a siren but will also ping your 24/7 monitoring team. Even if you’re not available, help will be dispatched. Your monitoring agents are capable of acting as your primary contact and patch you in as soon as you're free.
In addition to home invasions, your monitoring hub can link to fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It is likely to be harrowing for your guest if flooding occurs or a fire breaks out. Not only will you receive a cell phone alert that an emergency has occurred, but an agent is also able to arrange for emergency services while you're en route.
