How To Protect Your Rental Property In Tallahassee

Whether your leasing the a single property or you have a diverse portfolio, you are aware of how difficult it can be to protect a rental property in Tallahassee. If vacant, your residence may be a prime target for thieves or vandals. In the event you have tenants, you also have to try keeping people safe.

Including a mixture of solutions like 24-hour monitoring and smart devices, here are several proven methods to make sure you’re fully protecting your Tallahassee rental property.

Protect Your Rentals With Home Security Monitoring

An effective way to prevent criminal activity at your rental is the installation of a home security system with monitoring. Your guests will rest easier if they feel protected against intruders, especially if Tallahassee is somewhere they’ve never visited before. In the event a robber attempts to break in, your alarms will contact your ADT monitoring center while the easy-to-hear alarm alerts your visitors or tenants. You even have the ability to receive smartphone texts when a connected security camera spots a potential burglar.

Smart Key Codes Add Security When You Have New Guests

If a tenant moves on, you need to ensure they don’t get entry to the house. If you use traditional keys and they have a copy, then they could possibly to regain entry. To offset this issue, you could install new locks every time a tenant leaves or utilize smart keypad locks that integrate with your home’s security. By using smart locks, you can give each occupant their own code number that will no longer work when they vacate the property. If past occupants return and use their old code on the keypad, you will get an alert on your smartphone.

Automation Protects Your Rental Property In Tallahassee -- Even When Your Property is Vacant

When you have a rental or vacation home in Tallahassee, you need to protect the unit when it’s not occupied. An effective way to do that is to give an impression that there's someone home. By connecting your property’s security system to home automation components like smart bulbs, thermostats, and speakers, your place will always appear occupied. Set the lights 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 second-guess their intentions. By using the right security system, you can set schedules through a simple smartphone interface.
