Home automation makes empty properties appear to be inhabited
Of course, you hope that your Tuscaloosa rental property will have guests, but that's not always possible. Despite this fact, you need to make it seem that guests are there so your place isn’t a potential target for thieves. Implementing home automation into your property’s security affords you the opportunity to benefit from smart lights, motion detection devices, and video cameras that make your rental seem lived-in.
You can put your plan in motion by setting your smart lighting to turn on at specific hours of the day. Then, use your security smartphone app to alert you if your cameras detect an intruder prowling around your perimeter or coming to your main entrance. You then are able to use the 2-way talk capability so they know you're watching or program your lights to automatically illuminate when a surveillance device or motion sensor discerns something unusual.
Protect your Tuscaloosa rental property with around-the-clock monitoring
Your renters will be more relaxed if they have protection against intruders, especially when Tuscaloosa is somewhat unfamiliar. In the event a thief makes an effort to break in, your home security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also alert your 24/7 monitoring team. Now, no matter where you are, help will be forthcoming. Your monitoring specialists can even act as your authorized go-between and patch you in when you're able.
In addition to break-ins, your monitoring team can be linked to fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It would be understandably harrowing for your visitor if flooding occurs or a fire erupts. Not only will you be sent a smartphone update that a potentially dangerous event has happened, but the monitoring agent can also arrange for help from emergency personnel while you're in transit.
