Ways To Protect Your Rental Property In Albany

Whether you’re renting out 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 Albany. If vacant, your residence may look enticing for thieves or vandals. And if you have renters, you have to be conscious of keeping people safe.

Including a mixture of solutions like 24-hour monitoring and automated home controls, here are several proven methods to assist in the protection of your Albany rental property.

Get Consistent Security With 24-hour Security Monitoring

One of the best deterrents against theft or vandalism at your rental property is the installation of a home security system with monitoring. Your tenants will rest easier when they feel secure against intruders, primarily when Albany is somewhere they’ve never visited before. If a thief does try to break in, your alarms will contact your monitoring professionals at ADT while the easy-to-hear alarm alerts all people within the home. You can even get a notification to your phone when connected security camera picks up unusual activity.

Smart Locks Make It Easier To Rotate Renters

When a guest moves on, you should go through the process so they don’t have a way to enter the house. If you use traditional keys and they have a copy, then they could potentially come back later. To combat this problem, you can change the locks after each renter or install smart locks that integrate with your home’s security. By using keypad locks, you can give each renter a unique code that can deactivate when they vacate the property. In the event renters return and try an old key code, you will get an alert on your smartphone.

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

When you invest in a rental or vacation property in Albany, you you still have to ensure it’s protected, including when it’s not occupied. The best way to do that is to make it look like there's someone home. By linking your home security system to automation devices like smart bulbs, thermostats, and speakers, your unit will always appear occupied. Set certain light bulbs to turn on at specific hours during the day and night and play music for a few hours, and a would-be intruder will quickly reconsider their plans. By using the right security system, you can set schedules through a simple smartphone interface.
