A smart security system makes empty properties look occupied
Of course, you hope that your Salt Lake City rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that won’t always be true. However, you should strive to make it appear that guests are there so your Airbnb isn’t a potential target for thieves. Implementing a security system with home automation allows you to benefit from smart lights, motion sensors, and security cameras that make your lodging appear inhabited.
You can put your plan in motion by setting your smart lighting to turn on at particular times of the day. Then, use your cell phone app to alert you if your exterior cameras notice someone prowling around your perimeter or coming to your primary entry. You have the opportunity to use the 2-way talk capability to make them aware that they’re being watched or set your lights to automatically come on when a surveillance device or motion sensor uncovers questionable movement.
Protect your Salt Lake City Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your renters will have more peace of mind if they feel protected against criminals, especially when Salt Lake City is not familiar to them. In the event a prowler makes an effort to invade your property, your home security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also ping your 24-hour monitoring team. Even if you’re not available, emergency services will be forthcoming. Your monitoring agents are capable of acting as your primary contact and patch you in when you're available.
In addition to home invasions, your monitoring center can be linked to fire alarms, flood detectors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It would be understandably harrowing for your guest if a water heater springs a leak or a fire breaks out. Not only will you get a cell phone alert that a potentially dangerous event has happened, but an agent can also coordinate help from emergency personnel while you're in transit.
