Smart home technology makes available rentals look occupied
Of course, you hope that your Wichita Falls rental property will be occupied, but that's not always the case. Despite this fact, you should strive to give an impression that guests are there so your rental isn’t targeted by prowlers. Installing home automation into your property’s security affords you the opportunity to take advantage of smart light bulbs, motion detection equipment, and security cameras that make your lodging seem occupied.
Start by setting your smart lights to turn on at specific hours of the evening. You will also want your security app to warn you if your video cameras detect an intruder hiding in the dark or coming to your primary entry. You can use the two-way audio capability to make them aware that you're watching or program your smart lights to automatically come on when a surveillance device or motion detector discerns suspicious activity.
Protect your Wichita Falls Airbnb with 24/7 monitoring
Your renters will have more peace of mind if they have protection from criminals, specifically when Wichita Falls is somewhat unfamiliar. If a prowler tries to gain entry, your security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your around-the-clock monitoring professionals. Even if you’re not available, help will be forthcoming. Your monitoring specialists can even act as your primary contact and patch you in whenever you're free.
Besides break-ins, your monitoring center can be linked to fire alarms, flood detectors, and CO detectors. It would be understandably harrowing for your guest if a pipe bursts or something catches fire. You not only will receive a cell phone notification that an urgent situation has taken place, but a representative can also authorize emergency services while you're en route.
