Smart home technology makes available rentals look occupied
It's nice to think that your Portland rental property will be occupied, but that won’t always be possible. Despite this fact, you need to make it seem that guests are there so your Airbnb isn’t targeted by prowlers. Incorporating home automation into your property’s security allows you to use smart lights, motion sensors, and security cameras that make your home look occupied.
You can put your plan in motion by scheduling some lights to come on at particular times of the night. You will also set your cell phone app to warn you if your cameras detect an unwanted guest prowling around your perimeter or approaching the front door. You have the opportunity to use the talk feature so they know you can see them or set your lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion detector identifies suspicious activity.
Protect your Portland rental property with 24/7 monitoring
Your tenants can sleep easy if they feel protected against burglars, particularly when Portland is unfamiliar territory. If a thief attempts to gain entry, your home alarm system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your 24/7 monitoring professionals. Regardless of your location, assistance will be forthcoming. Your monitoring specialists are capable of acting as your authorized go-between and loop you in when you're available.
Besides intrusions, your monitoring team can link to fire alarms, flood detectors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It would be understandably harrowing for your renter if flooding occurs or a fire erupts. Not only will you get a smartphone alert that an urgent situation has happened, but a representative will also arrange for help from emergency personnel while you're on the way.
