Smart home technology makes vacant units appear occupied at all times
It's nice to think that your Charleston rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that's not always the case. Despite this fact, you need to make it appear that people are present so your Airbnb isn’t targeted by prowlers. Incorporating a security system with home automation allows you to use smart lights, motion sensors, and surveillance systems that make your lodging seem occupied.
Begin by setting some lights to turn on at specific hours of the evening. You will also want your cell phone app to notify you if your video cameras notice someone lurking around your perimeter or approaching the front door. You then are able to take advantage of the two-way audio functionality to make them aware that they’re being watched or set your smart lights to automatically illuminate when a surveillance device or motion detector identifies something unusual.
Protect your Charleston Airbnb with around-the-clock monitoring
Your renters can sleep easy if they feel protected from criminals, particularly when Charleston is not familiar to them. If a thief attempts to gain entry, your security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your 24-hour monitoring team. Now, no matter where you are, help will be dispatched. Your monitoring experts can even act as your primary contact and patch you in as soon as you're free.
Besides intrusions, your monitoring center can link to fire alarms, flood detectors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It is likely to be harrowing for your visitor if flooding occurs or something catches fire. Not only will you receive a phone update that a potentially dangerous event has happened, but a representative will also arrange for emergency services while you're en route.
