Smart home technology makes empty properties appear to be inhabited
It's nice to think that your Champaign rental property will have guests, but that won’t always be the case. However, you need to give an impression that guests are there so your Airbnb isn’t a potential target for burglars. Installing a security system that includes home automation gives you the chance to take advantage of smart lights, motion sensors, and video cameras that make your home look inhabited.
You can put your plan in motion by scheduling your smart lights to come on at particular times of the night. Then, use your cell phone app to alert you if your cameras notice someone hiding around your perimeter or approaching the front door. You have the opportunity to employ the two-way audio functionality so they know you can see them or set your lights to automatically illuminate when a camera or motion detector uncovers suspicious activity.
Protect your Champaign Airbnb with around-the-clock monitoring
Your renters will have more peace of mind if they are safeguarded against intruders, especially when Champaign is somewhat unfamiliar. In the event a thief makes an effort to break in, your home alarm system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your around-the-clock monitoring agents. Even if you’re not available, emergency services will be dispatched. Your monitoring experts will even act as your primary contact and patch you in when you're able.
Along with home invasions, your monitoring hub can link to fire alarms, water sensors, and CO detectors. It is likely to be harrowing for your guest if a pipe bursts or a fire erupts. Not only will you get a phone update that a potentially dangerous event has occurred, but an agent will also coordinate assistance while you're en route.
