A smart security system makes available rentals appear to be inhabited
It's nice to think that your Richmond rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that isn’t likely to always be possible. However, you always want to make it appear that guests are there so your Airbnb isn’t a potential target for burglars. Implementing a security system with home automation gives you the chance to use smart lights, motion sensors, and surveillance systems that make your rental appear lived-in.
You can put your plan in motion by setting your smart lights to switch on at specific hours of the evening. Then, use your cell phone app to alert you if your cameras spot an unwanted guest hiding in the shadows or walking toward your primary entry. You have the opportunity to take advantage of the two-way audio capability to make them know they’re being watched or set your lighting to automatically come on when a camera or motion detector discerns questionable movement.
Protect your Richmond Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your occupants can sleep easy if they are safeguarded from burglars, specifically when Richmond is not familiar to them. In the event a thief tries to break in, your home security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also alert your 24/7 monitoring team. Even if you’re not available, help will be dispatched. Your monitoring experts will even act as your point person and loop you in when you're available.
In addition to break-ins, your monitoring center can be linked to fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It is likely to be harrowing for your renter if flooding occurs or a fire erupts. Not only will you be sent a smartphone alert that a potentially dangerous event has occurred, but the monitoring agent is also able to authorize emergency services while you're en route.
