A smart security system makes available rentals look occupied
Of course, you hope that your Ocala rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that isn’t likely to always be possible. Nevertheless, you always want to make it seem that guests are there so your Airbnb isn’t a potential target for thieves. Installing home automation into your property’s security affords you the opportunity to take advantage of smart lighting, motion detection equipment, and security cameras that make your home look inhabited.
Start by programming your smart lighting to turn on at specific hours of the evening. You will also set your security app to alert you if your exterior cameras spot someone hiding around your perimeter or approaching your primary entry. You can use the 2-way talk functionality to make them know they’re being watched or program your lighting to instantly turn on when a surveillance device or motion sensor uncovers questionable movement.
Protect your Ocala Airbnb with around-the-clock monitoring
Your renters will be more relaxed if they are safeguarded from intruders, especially when Ocala is unfamiliar territory. If a thief makes an effort to break in, your home security system will not only sound a siren but will also alert your 24/7 monitoring team. Now, no matter where you are, emergency services will be dispatched. Your monitoring agents are capable of acting as your primary contact and patch you in whenever you're available.
Besides break-ins, your monitoring team can be linked to fire alarms, water sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It is likely to be upsetting for your guest if a pipe bursts or a fire erupts. Not only will you receive a cell phone update that a potentially dangerous event has occurred, but an agent is also able to arrange for help from emergency personnel while you're en route.
