Home automation makes empty properties appear to be inhabited
The goal is that your Los Angeles rental property will be occupied, but that isn’t likely to always be the case. However, you should strive to make it seem that people are present so your rental isn’t an easy mark for prowlers. Installing a security system with home automation allows you to use smart lighting, motion detection devices, and video cameras that make your rental appear occupied.
Start by scheduling your smart lights to come on at particular times of the day. You will also set your security app to alert you if your video cameras spot an unwanted guest hiding around your perimeter or walking toward the front door. You can use the 2-way talk functionality so they know they’re being watched or set your lighting to automatically illuminate when a surveillance device or motion detector uncovers suspicious activity.
Protect your Los Angeles Airbnb with 24/7 monitoring
Your tenants will have more peace of mind if they have protection against criminals, specifically when Los Angeles is not familiar to them. If a robber makes an effort to gain entry, your security system will not only sound a siren but will also notify your 24-hour monitoring team. Now, no matter where you are, emergency services will be on its way. Your monitoring agents will even act as your primary contact and loop you in whenever you're able.
In addition to break-ins, your monitoring team can link to fire alarms, water sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It can be upsetting for your guest if flooding occurs or a fire breaks out. Not only will you get a phone notification that an urgent situation has happened, but a representative will also arrange for assistance while you're in transit.
