How To Protect Your Rental Property In Duluth

Whether you’re renting out the family lake house or you own a diverse portfolio, you know of how difficult it can be to protect a rental property in Duluth. When empty, your residence may look enticing for burglars or intruders. In the event you have tenants, you also have to try safeguarding human beings.

From security monitoring to home automation, here are a few tips and tricks to help you protect your Duluth rental property.

Use 24/7 Monitoring To Guard Your Rental Property

An effective way to prevent criminal activity at your rental is the installation of a home security system with monitoring. Your renters will rest easier if they feel protected against invaders, especially if Duluth is unknown to them. In the event a burglar attempts to break in, your advanced alarm system will alert your monitoring professionals at ADT while the easy-to-hear alarm rouses all people within the home. You even have the ability to get mobile notifications when a surveillance camera identifies unusual activity.

Smart Key Codes Add Security When You Have New Guests

When a renter moves out, sometimes it's a guess to know if they will be away forever. In the event they took a key with them, then they have the ability to to regain entry. To combat this problem, you can change the locks after each renter or install smart locks that integrate with your home’s security. With smart locks, you can allocate each renter a custom code that will no longer work once they leave. And if they ever do come back and use their old code on the keypad, you will receive a notification sent to your phone.

Automated Devices Protect Your Rental Property In Duluth -- Even If You’re Away

When you have a rental or vacation home in Duluth, you also have to ensure it’s protected, including when there’s nobody there. The best way to achieve this is to give an appearance that there's someone home. By connecting your property’s security system to home automation components like interior and exterior lights, audio systems, and thermostats, your unit will look occupied at all times. Program certain light bulbs to activate at specific hours during the day and night and engage your sound system for a couple hours or more, and a would-be intruder will quickly reconsider their plans. By using home automation with your security system, you can set schedules through a simple smartphone interface.
