Home automation makes vacant units appear to be inhabited
It's nice to think that your San Antonio rental property will have guests, but that won’t always be the case. Nevertheless, you need to make it appear that people are present so your Airbnb isn’t an easy mark for prowlers. Installing home automation into your property’s security gives you the chance to use smart lights, motion detection equipment, and surveillance systems that make your lodging seem lived-in.
Begin by programming your smart lights to switch on at particular times of the day. You will also want your cell phone app to notify you if your cameras detect an unwanted guest hiding in the shadows or coming to the front door. You then are able to take advantage of the 2-way talk feature to make them aware that they’re being watched or arrange for your smart lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion sensor identifies suspicious activity.
Protect your San Antonio Airbnb with 24/7 monitoring
Your tenants will have more peace of mind if they are safeguarded against criminals, especially when San Antonio is not familiar to them. In the event a prowler makes an effort to break in, your home security system will not only sound a siren but will also notify your around-the-clock monitoring agents. Regardless of your location, emergency services will be on its way. Your monitoring agents are capable of acting as your primary contact and loop you in when you're free.
Besides home invasions, your monitoring hub can be linked to fire alarms, flood detectors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It is likely to be upsetting for your visitor if flooding occurs or a fire erupts. Not only will you get a smartphone alert that an emergency has happened, but the monitoring agent is also able to arrange for help from emergency personnel while you're en route.
