Home automation makes empty properties appear to be inhabited
Of course, you hope that your Joliet rental property will be occupied, but that's not always true. Nevertheless, you need to make it seem that someone is home so your place isn’t an easy mark for burglars. Incorporating a security system that includes home automation allows you to use smart light bulbs, motion detection equipment, and video cameras that make your home appear lived-in.
You can put your plan in motion by setting some lights to come on at specified times of the evening. You will also set your security app to notify you if your exterior cameras notice an unwanted guest hiding in the dark or walking toward the front door. You have the opportunity to employ the 2-way talk feature so they know you're watching or set your lights to instantly turn on when a surveillance device or motion sensor discerns questionable movement.
Protect your Joliet rental property with 24/7 monitoring
Your renters will be more relaxed if they are safeguarded against burglars, particularly when Joliet is unfamiliar territory. If a robber attempts to invade your property, your security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your around-the-clock monitoring professionals. Regardless of your location, help will be on its way. Your monitoring specialists will even act as your point person and communicate with you as soon as you're able.
Along with home invasions, your monitoring team can be linked to fire alarms, water sensors, and carbon monoxide detectors. It would be understandably upsetting for your renter if a water heater springs a leak or a fire erupts. You will then be sent a cell phone update that an urgent situation has occurred, but the monitoring agent can also arrange for help from emergency personnel while you're on the way.
