Smart home technology makes available rentals appear to be inhabited
The goal is that your Long Beach rental property will have guests, but that's not always the case. However, you always want to make it seem that guests are there so your Airbnb isn’t an easy mark for prowlers. Implementing a security system that includes home automation affords you the opportunity to benefit from smart lighting, motion detection devices, and surveillance systems that make your home look inhabited.
Begin by setting your smart lighting to switch on at specific hours of the day. Then, use your security smartphone app to warn you if your cameras spot an unwanted guest hiding in the dark or walking toward your primary entry. You can take advantage of the 2-way talk feature so they know you can see them or set your smart lights to automatically come on when a camera or motion detector discerns something unusual.
Protect your Long Beach Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your renters can sleep easy if they have protection against criminals, specifically when Long Beach is unfamiliar territory. If a prowler makes an effort to gain entry, your home security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your around-the-clock monitoring agents. Now, no matter where you are, help will be dispatched. Your monitoring agents are capable of acting as your primary contact and patch you in as soon as you're free.
Along with intrusions, your monitoring team can link to fire alarms, flood detectors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It is likely to be distressing for your guest if a water heater springs a leak or a fire erupts. You not only will receive a phone alert that an emergency has occurred, but the monitoring agent is also able to coordinate help from emergency personnel while you're in transit.
