Home automation makes empty properties appear occupied at all times
It's nice to think that your Lafayette rental property will have guests, but that isn’t likely to always be the case. Nevertheless, you should strive to give an impression that guests are there so your rental isn’t a potential target for thieves. Installing a security system with home automation allows you to take advantage of smart light bulbs, motion sensors, and security cameras that make your home seem inhabited.
Start by programming your smart lights to come on at specified times of the night. You will also want your security smartphone app to alert you if your exterior cameras notice an unwanted guest hiding in the dark or approaching the front door. You then are able to take advantage of the 2-way talk functionality to make them aware that you're watching or arrange for your lights to instantly turn on when a camera or motion sensor identifies questionable movement.
Protect your Lafayette rental property with 24/7 monitoring
Your occupants will have more peace of mind if they are safeguarded from criminals, especially when Lafayette is unfamiliar territory. In the event a robber makes an effort to invade your property, your home security system will not only sound a siren but will also ping your 24/7 monitoring team. Now, no matter where you are, assistance will be dispatched. Your monitoring specialists can even act as your primary contact and communicate with you when you're free.
In addition to break-ins, your monitoring hub can be linked to fire alarms, water sensors, and CO detectors. It can be harrowing for your renter if a water heater springs a leak or something catches fire. You not only will be sent a phone alert that a potentially dangerous event has occurred, but a representative can also authorize emergency services while you're en route.
