A smart security system makes vacant units appear to be inhabited
It's nice to think that your Seattle rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that won’t always be the case. However, you should strive to make it appear that guests are there so your place isn’t an easy mark for prowlers. Incorporating a security system with home automation allows you to use smart lighting, motion detection equipment, and security cameras that make your lodging appear occupied.
Start by scheduling your smart lighting to come on at particular times of the night. You will also want your cell phone app to notify you if your exterior cameras notice an intruder lurking in the shadows or walking toward your main entrance. You then are able to take advantage of the talk functionality so they know you can see them or set your smart lights to automatically come on when a camera or motion sensor identifies suspicious activity.
Protect your Seattle rental property with around-the-clock monitoring
Your renters can sleep easy if they feel protected against intruders, especially when Seattle is somewhat unfamiliar. When a prowler attempts to gain entry, your home security system will not only sound a siren but will also ping your around-the-clock monitoring professionals. Regardless of your location, help will be on its way. Your monitoring specialists are capable of acting as your primary contact and loop you in as soon as you're able.
Besides break-ins, your monitoring center can be connected with fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It can be distressing for your guest if a water heater springs a leak or a fire erupts. You will then get a cell phone alert that an emergency has occurred, but a representative will also arrange for emergency services while you're en route.
