Ways To Protect Your Rental Property In Blacksburg

Whether you rent a single property or you are a real estate investor with a diverse rental portfolio, you know it can be difficult to protect a rental property in Blacksburg. When empty, your unit may look enticing for a burglar or vandal. In the event you have tenants, you also have to try safeguarding human beings.

Ranging from round-the-clock monitoring to advanced automation systems, here are some ways to make sure you’re fully protecting your Blacksburg rental property.

Get Round The Clock Protection With Professional Security Monitoring

One of the best deterrents against theft or vandalism at your rental property is installing a monitored security system. Your guests will rest easier when they feel secure against invaders, especially if Blacksburg is somewhere they’ve never visited before. If a intruder does try to break in, your alarms will alert your monitoring professionals at ADT while the easy-to-hear alarm warns all people within the home. You can even receive a notification to your phone when a connected security camera identifies unusual activity.

Advanced Keypad Locks Add Security When You Have New Guests

If a tenant moves out, sometimes it's a mystery to know if they will be away forever. If you use traditional keys and they have a copy, then they could potentially come back later. To counteract this concern, you could install new locks every time a tenant leaves or install smart locks with your security system. With smart locks, you can give every tenant their own code number that will expire when the lease ends. In the event renters return and try an old key code, you will receive a notification sent to your phone.

Automation Protects Your Rental Property In Blacksburg -- Even If You’re Away

When you have a rental or airbnb in Blacksburg, you you still have to secure the house when it's vacant. The best way to do this is to give an impression that that people are present. By linking your home security system to automation devices like lighting, entertainment systems, and climate control, your place will always appear occupied. Preset 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. With the proper home security, you can set schedules through a mobile security app.
