Home automation makes vacant units look occupied
Of course, you hope that your Chico rental property will be occupied, but that isn’t likely to always be true. Nevertheless, you should strive to give an impression that someone is home so your rental isn’t targeted by thieves. Installing home automation into your property’s security allows you to benefit from smart light bulbs, motion detection devices, and security cameras that make your rental look occupied.
Begin by programming your smart lights to come on at specific hours of the night. Then, use your security smartphone app to notify you if your video cameras notice an intruder prowling around your perimeter or coming to the front door. You then are able to take advantage of the two-way audio feature to make them know they’re being watched or program your lights to automatically illuminate when a surveillance device or motion detector identifies something unusual.
Protect your Chico Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your tenants can sleep easy if they are safeguarded against criminals, especially when Chico is not familiar to them. When a robber tries to gain entry, your security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also ping your 24-hour monitoring team. Now, no matter where you are, help will be forthcoming. Your monitoring specialists can even act as your point person and patch you in whenever you're able.
Besides home invasions, your monitoring center can be connected with fire alarms, flood detectors, and CO detectors. It is likely to be harrowing for your renter if a water heater springs a leak or something catches fire. Not only will you be sent a phone update that an urgent situation has occurred, but the monitoring agent is also able to authorize emergency services while you're en route.
