Ways To Protect Your Rental Property In College Station

Whether you rent your parents' old condo or you have an array of investment properties, you are aware it can be difficult to protect a rental property in College Station. When empty, your unit may look enticing for a burglar or vandal. Also, if you are currently full, you have to be conscious of keeping your tenants secure.

From 24/7 monitoring to home automation, here are some ways to help you protect your College Station rental property.

Use 24/7 Monitoring To Secure Your Vacation Or Rental Property

One of the best deterrents against rental or vacation property damage is the installation of a home security system with monitoring. Your tenants will enjoy more peace of mind when they feel secure against intruders, particularly if College Station is somewhere they’ve never visited before. If a intruder attempts to break in, your alarms will contact your monitoring professionals at ADT while the easy-to-hear alarm alerts all people within the home. You even have the ability to receive mobile notifications in the event a surveillance camera spots a lurker.

Advanced Keypad Locks Make It Easier To Rotate Renters

When a guest vacates your property, you should make sure they are cut from access. In the event they took a key with them, then they have the ability to re-enter your home. To offset this issue, you could install new locks every time a tenant leaves or install smart locks with your home security system. By using smart locks, you can allocate each occupant a custom code that will expire once they leave. And if they ever do come back and attempt to use their outdated code, you will receive a notification on your smartphone.

Automation Protects Your Rental Property In College Station -- Even If You’re Away

If you own a rental or airbnb in College Station, you also have to ensure it’s protected, including when it’s not occupied. a smart method to do this is to give an appearance that that people are present. By connecting your property’s security system to home automation components like smart bulbs, thermostats, and speakers, your unit will look occupied at all times. Set certain light bulbs to turn on at specific hours during the day and night and play music for a few hours, and a would-be intruder will quickly reconsider their plans. With the right security system, you can set schedules through a mobile security app.
