Home automation makes vacant units appear to be inhabited
It's nice to think that your St. Louis rental property will have a steady flow of renters, but that won’t always be possible. Nevertheless, you should strive to make it seem that guests are there so your Airbnb isn’t an easy mark for thieves. Incorporating home automation into your property’s security gives you the chance to take advantage of smart lighting, motion detection devices, and security cameras that make your lodging appear occupied.
Start by programming some lights to switch on at particular times of the evening. Then, use your cell phone app to notify you if your exterior cameras spot an unwanted guest hiding in the dark or walking toward the front door. You have the opportunity to employ the 2-way talk feature so they know you can see them or arrange for your lights to automatically come on when a camera or motion sensor discerns something unusual.
Protect your St. Louis Airbnb with around-the-clock monitoring
Your renters will be more relaxed if they feel protected against burglars, especially when St. Louis is unfamiliar territory. When a thief makes an effort to invade your property, your home alarm system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your around-the-clock monitoring team. Even if you’re not available, help will be on its way. Your monitoring experts can even act as your primary contact and communicate with you when you're free.
Along with break-ins, your monitoring hub can be connected with fire alarms, water sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It is likely to be distressing for your visitor if a pipe bursts or a fire erupts. Not only will you receive a smartphone notification that an urgent situation has happened, but a representative can also arrange for emergency services while you're in transit.
