Ways To Protect Your Rental Property In New York City

Whether you rent your parents' old condo or you have a diverse rental portfolio, you are aware of how difficult it can be to protect a rental property in New York City. If vacant, your residence may look enticing for a burglar or vandal. Additionally, if you are currently leasing, you have to be conscious of safeguarding human beings.

Including a mixture of solutions like security monitoring and home automation, here are a few tips and tricks to make sure you’re fully protecting your New York City rental property.

Get Consistent Protection With Professional Security Monitoring

A proven method to discourage criminal activity at your rental is the installation of a home security system with monitoring. Your guests will rest easier when they feel secure against invaders, particularly if New York City is somewhere they’ve never visited before. In the event a burglar tries to enter unlawfully, your alarms will contact your ADT monitoring center while the high-decibel alarm warns your visitors or tenants. You even have the ability to get phone alerts in the event a security camera picks up unusual activity.

Smart Key Codes Make It Easier To Rotate Renters

After a tenant moves on, you have to ensure they don’t get entry to their old house. If they took or copied a key, then they could possibly come back later. To combat this problem, you could install new locks every time a tenant leaves or utilize smart keypad locks that integrate with your home security system. With smart locks, you can provide each occupant a custom code that will expire when the lease ends. In the event renters return and attempt to use their outdated code, you will receive a notification on your phone.

Smart Home Automation Protects Your Rental Property In New York City -- Even If You’re Away

When you have a rental or airbnb in New York City, you you still have to secure the house when it's vacant. a smart method 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 smart bulbs, thermostats, and speakers, your home will look occupied at all times. Program your lighting to turn on at regular intervals throughout the day and play music for a few hours, and a curious prowler will quickly reconsider their plans. With the proper home security, you are able to program devices with a mobile security app.
