A smart security system makes empty properties appear to be inhabited
Of course, you hope that your Tucson rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that isn’t likely to always be true. Nevertheless, you need to make it seem that people are present so your Airbnb isn’t targeted by prowlers. Incorporating a security system with home automation affords you the opportunity to take advantage of smart lights, motion detection devices, and surveillance systems that make your lodging appear inhabited.
Begin by setting some lights to come on at specified times of the day. You will also want your cell phone app to alert you if your exterior cameras spot someone prowling in the dark or approaching the front door. You have the opportunity to use the two-way audio functionality to make them aware that you can see them or set your smart lights to automatically illuminate when a surveillance device or motion detection equipment uncovers suspicious activity.
Protect your Tucson Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your renters will have more peace of mind if they are safeguarded from criminals, especially when Tucson is not familiar to them. In the event a thief tries to invade your property, your home alarm system will not only sound a siren but will also notify your around-the-clock monitoring team. Even if you’re not available, help will be on its way. Your monitoring agents can even act as your primary contact and patch you in whenever you're free.
In addition to intrusions, your monitoring team can be linked to fire alarms, flood sensors, and CO detectors. It is likely to be upsetting for your visitor if a water heater springs a leak or a fire breaks out. You not only will receive a cell phone update that a potentially dangerous event has happened, but the monitoring agent is also able to authorize emergency services while you're on the way.
