Home automation makes vacant units look occupied
The goal is that your Morgantown rental property will have guests, but that won’t always be possible. Despite this fact, you always want to give an impression that guests are there so your Airbnb isn’t an easy mark for prowlers. Installing a security system that includes home automation affords you the opportunity to take advantage of smart lighting, motion detection devices, and video cameras that make your lodging seem inhabited.
Start by scheduling some lights to turn on at specific hours of the day. You will also want your security app to warn you if your exterior cameras detect an unwanted guest lurking around your perimeter or coming to your main entrance. You then are able to take advantage of the talk capability to make them aware that you can see them or set your lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion sensor discerns something unusual.
Protect your Morgantown rental property with around-the-clock monitoring
Your renters will be more relaxed if they are safeguarded against criminals, specifically when Morgantown is somewhat unfamiliar. In the event a thief tries to gain entry, your security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also ping your around-the-clock monitoring team. Regardless of your location, emergency services will be dispatched. Your monitoring agents will even act as your authorized go-between and communicate with you as soon as you're able.
Besides home invasions, your monitoring center can be linked to fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It would be understandably distressing for your guest if a water heater springs a leak or a fire breaks out. You not only will get a cell phone notification that an urgent situation has taken place, but the monitoring agent is also able to arrange for emergency services while you're on the way.
