A smart security system makes vacant units appear occupied at all times
It's nice to think that your Columbia rental property will have guests, but that won’t always be true. Despite this fact, you always want to make it appear that guests are there so your rental isn’t a potential target for burglars. Installing a security system with home automation affords you the opportunity to use smart lights, motion sensors, and surveillance systems that make your rental look inhabited.
You can put your plan in motion by programming your smart lights to come on at specific hours of the night. Then, use your security smartphone app to alert you if your video cameras detect an intruder lurking in the dark or walking toward your main entrance. You have the opportunity to take advantage of the two-way audio functionality to make them know they’re being watched or arrange for your smart lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion detection equipment identifies questionable movement.
Protect your Columbia rental property with around-the-clock monitoring
Your renters can sleep easy if they are safeguarded against intruders, especially when Columbia is not familiar to them. When a prowler makes an effort to gain entry, your home alarm system will not only sound a siren but will also ping your 24/7 monitoring professionals. Regardless of your location, emergency services will be dispatched. Your monitoring specialists will even act as your primary contact and communicate with you when you're available.
Besides intrusions, your monitoring hub can be linked to fire alarms, water sensors, and CO detectors. It can be harrowing for your guest if a water heater springs a leak or a fire breaks out. You will then get a cell phone update that a potentially dangerous event has happened, but a representative can also arrange for help from emergency personnel while you're on the way.
