Smart home technology makes empty properties appear to be inhabited
The goal is that your Akron rental property will be occupied, but that won’t always be possible. However, you always want to make it appear that guests are there so your place isn’t an easy mark for thieves. Installing a security system that includes home automation allows you to benefit from smart lights, motion sensors, and security cameras that make your rental seem occupied.
Start by scheduling some lights to turn on at specified times of the night. Then, use your cell phone app to alert you if your cameras notice someone lurking in the dark or approaching your main entrance. You have the opportunity to take advantage of the talk functionality to make them aware that you can see them or program your smart lights to instantly turn on when a camera or motion sensor identifies something unusual.
Protect your Akron Airbnb with around-the-clock monitoring
Your renters will be more relaxed if they are safeguarded from intruders, especially when Akron is unfamiliar territory. In the event a prowler attempts to gain entry, your home alarm system will not only sound a siren but will also notify your 24-hour monitoring team. Regardless of your location, emergency services will be dispatched. Your monitoring agents are capable of acting as your point person and communicate with you as soon as you're free.
Along with break-ins, your monitoring hub can link to fire alarms, water sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It is likely to be upsetting for your guest if flooding occurs or something catches fire. You not only will be sent a phone update that an emergency has taken place, but the monitoring agent can also arrange for assistance while you're in transit.
