Home automation makes vacant units appear to be inhabited
Of course, you hope that your Ventura rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that isn’t likely to always be possible. However, you need to make it appear that people are present so your place isn’t targeted by prowlers. Incorporating a security system with home automation affords you the opportunity to take advantage of smart lights, motion detection devices, and video cameras that make your lodging seem inhabited.
Begin by setting your smart lighting to come on at particular times of the night. You will also set your security app to warn you if your exterior cameras notice someone prowling in the dark or walking toward your main entrance. You then are able to use the 2-way talk feature so they know you can see them or program your lighting to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion sensor uncovers questionable movement.
Protect your Ventura rental property with around-the-clock monitoring
Your occupants will have more peace of mind if they have protection against burglars, particularly when Ventura is unfamiliar territory. If a robber makes an effort to break in, your home security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also alert your 24/7 monitoring team. Now, no matter where you are, help will be on its way. Your monitoring experts will even act as your authorized go-between and patch you in as soon as you're free.
Along with home invasions, your monitoring center can link to fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It can be upsetting for your renter if flooding occurs or a fire erupts. Not only will you get a phone alert that an urgent situation has happened, but the monitoring agent is also able to arrange for emergency services while you're in transit.
