Home automation makes available rentals appear to be inhabited
The goal is that your Chicago rental property will be occupied, but that's not always the case. Nevertheless, you need to make it seem that someone is home so your Airbnb isn’t an easy mark for prowlers. Incorporating a security system with home automation gives you the chance to use smart light bulbs, motion detection equipment, and surveillance systems that make your rental seem inhabited.
Start by setting your smart lighting to turn on at particular times of the night. You will also want your security app to alert you if your video cameras notice someone lurking around your perimeter or walking toward your main entrance. You have the opportunity to employ the talk functionality to make them aware that you can see them or set your lights to automatically come on when a camera or motion detector discerns suspicious activity.
Protect your Chicago Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your renters can sleep easy if they feel protected from intruders, specifically when Chicago is not familiar to them. In the event a prowler makes an effort to gain entry, your home alarm system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your 24-hour monitoring team. Even if you’re not available, help will be forthcoming. Your monitoring experts can even act as your primary contact and loop you in when you're available.
Besides break-ins, your monitoring team can link to fire alarms, water sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It is likely to be harrowing for your visitor if flooding occurs or a fire breaks out. Not only will you get a cell phone update that an emergency has taken place, but an agent is also able to coordinate emergency services while you're in transit.
