Smart home technology makes empty properties look occupied
The goal is that your Duluth rental property will have guests, but that won’t always be the case. However, you always want to make it appear that someone is home so your rental isn’t a potential target for thieves. Incorporating a security system that includes home automation allows you to benefit from smart light bulbs, motion sensors, and surveillance systems that make your lodging look lived-in.
You can put your plan in motion by setting your smart lights to turn on at particular times of the day. You will also want your security smartphone app to notify you if your exterior cameras detect an intruder hiding in the shadows or approaching your main entrance. You have the opportunity to use the 2-way talk capability so they know they’re being watched or program your smart lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion detection equipment uncovers something unusual.
Protect your Duluth rental property with 24-hour monitoring
Your renters can sleep easy if they feel protected from intruders, specifically when Duluth is unfamiliar territory. If a robber makes an effort to gain entry, your home alarm system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your 24/7 monitoring team. Regardless of your location, emergency services will be dispatched. Your monitoring agents will even act as your authorized go-between and communicate with you whenever you're free.
In addition to intrusions, your monitoring hub can be connected with fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It can be distressing for your renter if flooding occurs or a fire erupts. You will then receive a cell phone alert that an emergency has taken place, but a representative is also able to coordinate emergency services while you're in transit.
