Smart home technology makes available rentals appear to be inhabited
The goal is that your New Orleans rental property will be occupied, but that's not always the case. Nevertheless, you should strive to make it appear that someone is home so your place isn’t an easy mark for thieves. Incorporating a security system that includes home automation gives you the chance to use smart lighting, motion sensors, and surveillance systems that make your rental seem lived-in.
Start by programming some lights to turn on at specified times of the day. You will also want your cell phone app to notify you if your cameras spot an unwanted guest lurking in the shadows or coming to the front door. You have the opportunity to use the talk functionality to make them know you're watching or program your lighting to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion sensor uncovers something unusual.
Protect your New Orleans rental property with 24/7 monitoring
Your tenants can sleep easy if they feel protected from burglars, especially when New Orleans is unfamiliar territory. In the event a robber attempts to break in, your home alarm system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also alert your 24/7 monitoring team. Regardless of your location, assistance will be dispatched. Your monitoring experts will even act as your primary contact and communicate with you whenever you're available.
Along with intrusions, your monitoring hub can link to fire alarms, water sensors, and CO detectors. It can be harrowing for your visitor if flooding occurs or a fire breaks out. You not only will receive a phone notification that a potentially dangerous event has taken place, but the monitoring agent can also authorize help from emergency personnel while you're en route.
