Home automation makes available rentals appear to be inhabited
Of course, you hope that your Bakersfield rental property will be occupied, but that won’t always be the case. Nevertheless, you always want to give an impression that guests are there so your rental isn’t targeted by prowlers. Implementing home automation into your property’s security affords you the opportunity to benefit from smart light bulbs, motion detection devices, and surveillance systems that make your home seem occupied.
Start by programming your smart lights to turn on at specified times of the night. Then, use your security app to warn you if your video cameras detect someone hiding in the shadows or coming to the front door. You have the opportunity to use the two-way audio feature so they know you're watching or program your lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion detector identifies questionable movement.
Protect your Bakersfield rental property with around-the-clock monitoring
Your renters can sleep easy if they have protection from criminals, particularly when Bakersfield is somewhat unfamiliar. If a thief makes an effort to gain entry, your home security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your 24/7 monitoring team. Now, no matter where you are, emergency services will be on its way. Your monitoring experts will even act as your primary contact and loop you in as soon as you're available.
Besides home invasions, your monitoring team can be linked to fire alarms, flood sensors, and CO detectors. It can be upsetting for your visitor if a pipe bursts or a fire breaks out. Not only will you get a cell phone alert that an emergency has happened, but the monitoring agent can also authorize emergency services while you're on the way.
