Home automation makes available rentals look occupied
It's nice to think that your San Jose rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that's not always the case. However, you need to give an impression that guests are there so your Airbnb isn’t a potential target for burglars. Implementing a security system with home automation affords you the opportunity to take advantage of smart light bulbs, motion sensors, and video cameras that make your home seem lived-in.
Begin by scheduling your smart lights to switch on at particular times of the evening. You will also set your security app to alert you if your video cameras spot an unwanted guest hiding around your perimeter or coming to your main entrance. You can use the talk feature to make them know you're watching or program your lighting to instantly turn on when a surveillance device or motion sensor identifies questionable movement.
Protect your San Jose rental property with 24-hour monitoring
Your tenants will have more peace of mind if they have protection against intruders, particularly when San Jose is somewhat unfamiliar. When a prowler tries to break in, your home alarm system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also alert your 24-hour monitoring professionals. Regardless of your location, assistance will be forthcoming. Your monitoring specialists will even act as your primary contact and communicate with you whenever you're available.
Besides break-ins, your monitoring hub can be connected with fire alarms, flood sensors, and CO detectors. It can be distressing for your visitor if a pipe bursts or a fire erupts. Not only will you receive a phone alert that a potentially dangerous event has taken place, but a representative is also able to arrange for help from emergency personnel while you're on the way.
