Smart home technology makes available rentals appear to be inhabited
Of course, you hope that your Bloomington rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that won’t always be the case. However, you need to give an impression that someone is home so your Airbnb isn’t targeted by burglars. Incorporating a security system with home automation allows you to benefit from smart lighting, motion sensors, and security cameras that make your rental seem occupied.
Begin by setting your smart lighting to come on at specific hours of the day. You will also want your security app to alert you if your video cameras detect an intruder prowling in the shadows or walking toward your primary entry. You have the opportunity to take advantage of the talk capability so they know you're watching or program your lighting to automatically illuminate when a surveillance device or motion detector discerns suspicious activity.
Protect your Bloomington Airbnb with around-the-clock monitoring
Your tenants can sleep easy if they have protection against intruders, especially when Bloomington is not familiar to them. In the event a thief tries to break in, 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 forthcoming. Your monitoring specialists will even act as your authorized go-between and loop you in as soon as you're free.
Along with home invasions, your monitoring hub can be linked to fire alarms, flood sensors, and CO detectors. It would be understandably upsetting for your visitor if flooding occurs or a fire breaks out. You will then receive a phone notification that an urgent situation has taken place, but an agent is also able to authorize help from emergency personnel while you're en route.
