Smart home technology makes available rentals appear occupied at all times
The goal is that your Columbia rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that's not always the case. Nevertheless, you should strive to make it seem that guests are there so your Airbnb isn’t a potential target for prowlers. Installing a security system that includes home automation gives you the chance to use smart light bulbs, motion detection equipment, and security cameras that make your rental appear lived-in.
Start by scheduling some lights to switch on at specified times of the night. You will also set your security smartphone app to warn you if your exterior cameras spot someone hiding in the shadows or walking toward the front door. You can use the 2-way talk feature to make them know they’re being watched or set your lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion detector identifies suspicious activity.
Protect your Columbia Airbnb with 24/7 monitoring
Your occupants will have more peace of mind if they are safeguarded against burglars, especially when Columbia is not familiar to them. If a thief attempts to invade your property, your security system will not only sound a siren but will also ping your 24-hour monitoring team. Regardless of your location, help will be forthcoming. Your monitoring agents are capable of acting as your point person and patch you in as soon as you're able.
Besides break-ins, your monitoring hub can be linked to fire alarms, water sensors, and CO detectors. It is likely to be distressing for your renter if a water heater springs a leak or something catches fire. Not only will you get a cell phone alert that a potentially dangerous event has happened, but an agent can also coordinate help from emergency personnel while you're in transit.
