How To Protect Your Rental Property In Rochester

Whether you rent the family lake house or you own an array of investment properties, you understand that it can be challenging to protect a rental property in Rochester. If vacant, your place might be appealing for thieves or vandals. And if you have renters, you also have to try keeping your tenants secure.

Ranging from 24-hour monitoring to advanced smart devices, here are some ways to assist in the protection of your Rochester rental property.

Use Round-The-Clock Monitoring To Secure Your Rental House

An effective way to prevent criminal activity at your rental is the installation of a home security system with monitoring. Your tenants will rest easier if they feel secure against invaders, primarily when Rochester is unknown to them. If a burglar tries to force his way in, your alarms will alert your monitoring professionals at ADT while the high-decibel alarm warns all people within the home. You even have the ability to receive mobile notifications when a surveillance camera identifies a potential burglar.

Smart Key Codes Make It Easier To Rotate Renters

After a tenant vacates your property, sometimes it's a guess to know if they will be away forever. If they took or copied a key, then they could possibly re-enter your home. To combat this problem, you might switch out your locks each time a lease ends or utilize smart keypad locks that work with with your security system. By using smart locks, you can allocate each renter a custom code that can deactivate when the lease ends. And if they ever do come back and use their old code on the keypad, you will receive a notification on your phone.

Automation Protects Your Rental Property In Rochester -- Even When You’re Not Home

If you own a rental or vacation property in Rochester, you you still have to secure the house when it’s not occupied. The best way to achieve this is to make it look like that people are present. By linking your home security system to automation devices like smart bulbs, thermostats, and speakers, your home will always appear occupied. Preset your lighting to activate at regular intervals throughout the day and let some music play for a while, and a curious prowler will second-guess their intentions. With the proper home security, you have the ability to schedule components through a simple smartphone interface.
