How To Protect Your Rental Property

Whether you rent the family lake house or you are a real estate investor with a diverse portfolio, you know that it can be challenging to protect a rental property. When empty, your place may be a prime target for thieves or vandals. In the event you have guests, you also have to try keeping your tenants secure.

Ranging from 24-hour monitoring to advanced sensors and alarms, here are some ways to help you protect your rental property.

Safeguard Your Investment With Security Monitoring

A proven method to discourage criminal activity at your rental is the installation of a home security system with monitoring. Your guests can sleep easily if they have protection against invaders, particularly if the area is somewhere they’ve never visited before. If an intruder tries to break in, your security system will notify your monitoring professionals at ADT while the easy-to-hear alarm warns your visitors or tenants. You can even get a notification to your smartphone in the event a surveillance camera identifies a potential burglar.

Advanced Keypad Locks Make It Easier To Rotate Renters

When a tenant moves on, sometimes it's a mystery to know if they will be gone forever. If you use traditional keys and they have a copy, then they could possibly come back later. To counteract this concern, you can change the locks after each renter or have smart locks installed that work with your home security system. By using smart locks, you can provide every tenant a custom code that can deactivate when the lease ends. And if they ever do come back and try an old key code, you will receive a notification sent to your phone.

Smart Home Automation Protects Your Rental Property -- Even If You’re Away

When you invest in a rental or Airbnb, you need to ensure it’s protected, including when it's vacant. The best way to do that is to give an impression that that people are present. By integrating your advanced home security with automated features like interior and exterior lights, audio systems, and thermostats, your home will consistently appear to be inhabited. Program certain light bulbs to activate at specific hours during the day and night and play music for a few hours, and a curious prowler will second-guess their intentions. When you have the proper home security, you can set schedules through a mobile security app.
