Ways To Protect Your Rental Property In Athens

Whether you’re renting out your parents' old condo or you have a diverse rental portfolio, you understand that it can be challenging to protect a rental property in Athens. When empty, your residence might be appealing for burglars or intruders. Additionally, if you are currently full, you also have to try keeping your tenants secure.

Ranging from 24-hour monitoring to advanced automation systems, here are some ways to make sure you’re fully protecting your Athens rental property.

Get Round The Clock Security With Professional Security Monitoring

A proven method to discourage rental or vacation property damage is security monitoring. Your guests can sleep easy when they feel protected against intruders, especially if Athens is somewhere they’ve never visited before. If a burglar tries to break a window, your advanced alarm system will notify your ADT monitoring center while the high-decibel alarm warns your visitors or tenants. You can even receive a notification to your mobile device when connected security camera identifies unusual activity.

Smart Locks Add Security When You Have New Guests

If a guest moves on, you have to ensure they don’t get access to the house. If they took or copied a key, then they could possibly come back later. To counteract this concern, you could install new locks every time a tenant leaves or install smart locks that work with with your security system. By using smart locks, you can allocate every tenant a custom code that can deactivate once they leave. If past occupants return and use their old code on the keypad, you will get an alert sent to your phone.

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

If you own a rental or vacation home in Athens, you you still have to ensure it’s protected, including when there’s nobody there. An effective way to achieve this is to make it look like there’s always activity within the home. By connecting your property’s security system to home automation components like lighting, entertainment systems, and climate control, your unit will consistently appear to be inhabited. Set the lights to turn on at specific hours during the day and night and engage your sound system for a couple hours or more, and a potential burglar will second-guess their intentions. When you have the right security system, you have the ability to schedule components through a mobile security app.
