Home automation makes empty properties appear occupied at all times
It's nice to think that your Provo rental property will be occupied, but that won’t always be the case. Despite this fact, you always want to make it appear that guests are there so your rental isn’t an easy mark for burglars. Incorporating a security system that includes home automation allows you to take advantage of smart lighting, motion sensors, and video cameras that make your home appear occupied.
You can put your plan in motion by scheduling your smart lighting to switch on at specific hours of the evening. Then, use your security smartphone app to warn you if your cameras detect an unwanted guest lurking in the dark or coming to your primary entry. You then are able to take advantage of the 2-way talk feature so they know they’re being watched or program your lights to automatically come on when a camera or motion detector discerns something unusual.
Protect your Provo rental property with 24-hour monitoring
Your renters can sleep easy if they are safeguarded against criminals, especially when Provo is unfamiliar territory. When a prowler attempts to break in, your security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your 24-hour monitoring professionals. Even if you’re not available, emergency services will be on its way. Your monitoring agents can even act as your authorized go-between and patch you in when you're available.
Along with break-ins, your monitoring center can link to fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It is likely to be harrowing for your visitor if a water heater springs a leak or something catches fire. You will then receive a phone update that an emergency has happened, but a representative can also arrange for emergency services while you're en route.
