Home automation makes empty properties appear to be inhabited
It's nice to think that your Albany rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that's not always possible. However, you always want to make it appear that people are present so your rental isn’t targeted by prowlers. Installing a security system with home automation affords you the opportunity to take advantage of smart lighting, motion sensors, and surveillance systems that make your rental seem inhabited.
Start by programming your smart lights to turn on at specified times of the evening. You will also set your security app to warn you if your cameras spot an intruder prowling in the dark or walking toward your primary entry. You have the opportunity to use the two-way audio functionality to make them know you're watching or program your lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion detection equipment discerns questionable movement.
Protect your Albany Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your renters will be more relaxed if they feel protected from burglars, particularly when Albany is somewhat unfamiliar. If a thief makes an effort to break in, your home alarm system will not only sound a siren but will also ping your around-the-clock monitoring agents. Even if you’re not available, assistance will be on its way. Your monitoring agents can even act as your primary contact and communicate with you as soon as you're free.
In addition to home invasions, your monitoring team can be connected with fire alarms, flood detectors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It is likely to be harrowing for your renter if a pipe bursts or a fire breaks out. You not only will receive a smartphone notification that an urgent situation has happened, but an agent can also arrange for help from emergency personnel while you're en route.
