Home automation makes empty properties appear occupied at all times
Of course, you hope that your Bellingham rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that's not always true. Despite this fact, you need to make it appear that guests are there so your place isn’t a potential target for burglars. Incorporating home automation into your property’s security gives you the chance to use smart light bulbs, motion sensors, and surveillance systems that make your home seem occupied.
You can put your plan in motion by setting your smart lighting to switch on at specified times of the evening. You will also want your security smartphone app to alert you if your video cameras detect an intruder hiding in the dark or approaching your main entrance. You can take advantage of the 2-way talk functionality to make them know you're watching or arrange for your lighting to instantly turn on when a surveillance device or motion detector uncovers suspicious activity.
Protect your Bellingham rental property with around-the-clock monitoring
Your occupants will have more peace of mind if they feel protected against criminals, especially when Bellingham is not familiar to them. When a prowler makes an effort to gain entry, your home security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also alert your 24-hour monitoring agents. Even if you’re not available, help will be on its way. Your monitoring agents will even act as your point person and loop you in as soon as you're available.
Besides home invasions, your monitoring center can be connected with fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It would be understandably distressing for your visitor if a pipe bursts or a fire erupts. You not only will get a smartphone update that an urgent situation has occurred, but an agent is also able to authorize help from emergency personnel while you're en route.
