Home automation makes vacant units look occupied
The goal is that your Erie rental property will be occupied, but that's not always possible. Nevertheless, you should strive to make it appear that someone is home so your Airbnb isn’t a potential target for prowlers. Installing a security system that includes home automation allows you to use smart lights, motion detection equipment, and video cameras that make your home look lived-in.
Start by scheduling your smart lighting to switch on at specified times of the night. You will also set your cell phone app to alert you if your cameras notice someone lurking in the dark or coming to your main entrance. You then are able to take advantage of the 2-way talk capability so they know you're watching or program your smart lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion detector discerns something unusual.
Protect your Erie Airbnb with 24/7 monitoring
Your tenants can sleep easy if they feel protected against intruders, specifically when Erie is unfamiliar territory. When a thief tries to gain entry, your home alarm system will not only sound a siren but will also alert your 24/7 monitoring team. Even if you’re not available, emergency services will be on its way. Your monitoring specialists can even act as your point person and patch you in as soon as you're available.
In addition to break-ins, your monitoring center can be linked to fire alarms, water sensors, and CO detectors. It can be upsetting for your guest if a water heater springs a leak or something catches fire. You not only will be sent a cell phone alert that an emergency has occurred, but a representative can also arrange for emergency services while you're in transit.
