Tips To Protect Your Rental Property In Oakland

Whether your leasing the your parents' old condo or you have a diverse rental portfolio, you understand that it can be challenging to protect a rental property in Oakland. If it’s not occupied, your residence may look enticing for a burglar or vandal. Also, if you are currently renting, you also have to try safeguarding human beings.

Including a mixture of solutions like 24-hour monitoring and automated home controls, here are some ways to assist in the protection of your Oakland rental property.

Get Round The Clock Protection With 24/7 Security Monitoring

An effective way to prevent theft or vandalism at your rental property is security monitoring. Your guests will rest easier if they feel secure against intruders, especially if Oakland is unknown to them. If a thief tries to break in, your advanced alarm system will notify your monitoring professionals at ADT while the warning siren warns all people within the home. You even have the ability to get phone texts if a surveillance camera picks up a potential burglar.

Smart Key Codes Add Security When You Have New Guests

If a guest moves out, you need to they don’t get entry to their old house. If you use traditional keys and they have a copy, then they could potentially come back later. To offset this issue, you can change the locks after each renter or install smart locks that integrate with your home’s security. By using smart locks, you can provide each occupant a unique code that will expire when the lease ends. In the event renters return and use their old code on the keypad, you will get an alert on your smartphone.

Set certain light bulbs to activate at different times of the night and let some music play for a while, and a potential burglar will think twice before trying to enter. By using the right security system, you have the ability to schedule components through a convenient smartphone application.
