Smart home technology makes available rentals appear occupied at all times
It's nice to think that your Topeka rental property will be occupied, but that's not always possible. Despite this fact, you should strive to give an impression that someone is home so your Airbnb isn’t a potential target for thieves. Implementing a security system with home automation affords you the opportunity to use smart light bulbs, motion detection equipment, and security cameras that make your lodging appear lived-in.
You can put your plan in motion by setting your smart lighting to switch on at specified times of the evening. You will also set your security app to alert you if your cameras notice someone hiding in the shadows or approaching your main entrance. You then are able to use the 2-way talk capability to make them know you can see them or set your lighting to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion sensor discerns something unusual.
Protect your Topeka Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your tenants will have more peace of mind if they feel protected from intruders, particularly when Topeka is somewhat unfamiliar. If a thief tries to gain entry, your security system will not only sound a siren but will also ping your 24-hour monitoring agents. Now, no matter where you are, emergency services will be on its way. Your monitoring specialists can even act as your authorized go-between and communicate with you when you're able.
In addition to break-ins, your monitoring center can be linked to fire alarms, flood sensors, and CO detectors. It is likely to be harrowing for your visitor if a water heater springs a leak or something catches fire. You will then receive a phone update that an urgent situation has taken place, but an agent will also coordinate assistance while you're on the way.
