Home automation makes empty properties appear to be inhabited
The goal is that your Baltimore rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that's not always true. However, you always want to make it seem that someone is home so your rental isn’t an easy mark for prowlers. Incorporating a security system with home automation affords you the opportunity to use smart lighting, motion sensors, and security cameras that make your lodging seem lived-in.
Start by programming your smart lighting to come on at particular times of the day. Then, use your security app to notify you if your cameras spot an unwanted guest lurking in the shadows or approaching your main entrance. You can employ the 2-way talk functionality to make them aware that they’re being watched or program your lights to instantly turn on when a camera or motion detector uncovers questionable movement.
Protect your Baltimore Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your tenants will be more relaxed if they are safeguarded from burglars, especially when Baltimore is unfamiliar territory. In the event a prowler tries to gain entry, your security system will not only sound a siren but will also alert your 24-hour monitoring team. Even if you’re not available, help will be forthcoming. Your monitoring agents can even act as your authorized go-between and communicate with you when you're available.
Besides break-ins, your monitoring hub can link to fire alarms, water sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It is likely to be upsetting for your renter if a water heater springs a leak or a fire erupts. Not only will you be sent a smartphone update that an urgent situation has happened, but an agent is also able to coordinate assistance while you're in transit.
