Smart home technology makes available rentals look occupied
Of course, you hope that your Yakima rental property will have guests, but that isn’t likely to always be true. Despite this fact, you need to make it appear that someone is home so your rental isn’t a potential target for prowlers. Incorporating home automation into your property’s security allows you to use smart light bulbs, motion detection devices, and video cameras that make your home appear lived-in.
Start by setting your smart lights to come on at specified times of the night. You will also set your cell phone app to notify you if your exterior cameras notice an unwanted guest hiding in the dark or approaching your primary entry. You can employ the 2-way talk functionality to make them aware that they’re being watched or program your smart lights to automatically come on when a camera or motion detection equipment uncovers suspicious activity.
Protect your Yakima rental property with around-the-clock monitoring
Your tenants will be more relaxed if they feel protected against burglars, particularly when Yakima is somewhat unfamiliar. In the event a prowler makes an effort to invade your property, your security system will not only sound a siren but will also alert your around-the-clock monitoring professionals. Now, no matter where you are, emergency services will be dispatched. Your monitoring specialists will even act as your authorized go-between and loop you in whenever you're able.
Along with home invasions, your monitoring hub can be linked to fire alarms, flood detectors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It can be distressing for your guest if a pipe bursts or a fire breaks out. You not only will receive a smartphone alert that a potentially dangerous event has happened, but the monitoring agent can also coordinate assistance while you're in transit.
