How To Protect Your Rental Property In Salem

Whether you rent the family lake house or you have an array of investment properties, you know of how difficult it can be to protect a rental property in Salem. If it’s not occupied, your place might be appealing for thieves or vandals. And if you have guests, you also have to try keeping people safe.

Ranging from round-the-clock monitoring to advanced automation systems, here are several proven methods to assist in the protection of your Salem rental property.

Defend Your Rentals With A Monitored Security System

An effective way to prevent criminal activity at your rental is the installation of a home security system with monitoring. Your tenants can sleep easy if they feel secure against prowlers, particularly if Salem is somewhere they’ve never visited before. In the event a intruder tries to enter unlawfully, your security system will contact your 24/7 ADT monitoring team while the warning siren rouses all people within the home. You can even get an alert to your smartphone in the event a security camera picks up unusual activity.

Smart Key Codes Simplify Security With New Renters

After a renter vacates your property, sometimes it's tough to know if they will be away forever. In the event they took a key with them, then they have the ability to come back later. To combat this problem, you can change the locks after each renter or have smart locks installed that work with with your security system. By using keypad locks, you can provide each renter a custom code that will no longer work once they leave. And if they ever do come back and use their old code on the keypad, you will get an alert on your smartphone.

Program the lights to come on at specific hours during the day and night and let some music play for a while, and a curious prowler will quickly reconsider their plans. By using home automation with your security system, you are able to program devices with a convenient smartphone application.
