A smart security system makes available rentals look occupied
Of course, you hope that your Manhattan rental property will be occupied, but that isn’t likely to always be the case. However, you should strive to give an impression that someone is home so your rental isn’t targeted by thieves. Implementing home automation into your property’s security allows you to benefit from smart lights, motion detection devices, and video cameras that make your home look lived-in.
Start by setting some lights to come on at specific hours of the day. You will also set your security smartphone app to warn you if your exterior cameras notice an unwanted guest hiding around your perimeter or walking toward your main entrance. You have the opportunity to employ the two-way audio capability so they know you're watching or arrange for your smart lights to automatically come on when a surveillance device or motion detector discerns something unusual.
Protect your Manhattan Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your tenants can sleep easy if they feel protected against burglars, particularly when Manhattan is not familiar to them. In the event a thief attempts to break in, your home 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 dispatched. Your monitoring specialists are capable of acting as your primary contact and loop you in as soon as you're available.
Along with intrusions, your monitoring team can link to fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It is likely to be distressing for your visitor if a pipe bursts or something catches fire. Not only will you get a cell phone notification that a potentially dangerous event has happened, but an agent can also arrange for help from emergency personnel while you're on the way.
