How to protect your rental property in Orlando

March 18, 2022

Irregardless of whether you lease out your family’s cottage or have numerous Airbnbs, it’s often a challenge to protect your rental properties in Orlando. Due to the continual flow of tenants, it's easy to forget about a key in the handover or realize that you’re without an expensive item. In addition, what would you do in the event of a fire or flood at your Airbnb while it’s being leased?

From smart locks to fully automated security systems, here's a quick guide on how to protect your Airbnb in Orlando. 

Get rid of your keys with your Orlando smart door locks

When a guest vacates the premises, they might leave the keys behind for the next guest. Although, if a tenant grabbed or made a copy of a key, they could sneak back in later. Of course, you have the option to replace your locks after a key is lost, but that creates delays and cuts into your revenue.

You'll want to use smart door locks that function in conjunction with your security system to alleviate these worries. Then, you can give every guest their personal code number for entry. When they check out, there’s no need to worry with the key exchange. You can simply program the door code to deactivate when they vacate the property. If past occupants reappear and try their previous access code on the door, you will receive a message of the failed attempt on your phone.

Home automation makes empty properties appear to be inhabited

It's nice to think that your Orlando rental property will be occupied, but that's not always true. Nevertheless, you need to give an impression that someone is home so your place isn’t a potential target for thieves. Implementing a security system with home automation allows you to benefit from smart lighting, motion detection devices, and surveillance systems that make your lodging seem occupied.

Begin by setting some lights to switch on at specified times of the evening. You will also want your security app to notify you if your cameras detect someone hiding in the shadows or coming to the front door. You then are able to employ the 2-way talk functionality to make them know they’re being watched or set your lights to instantly turn on when a camera or motion detector discerns something unusual.

Protect your Orlando Airbnb with around-the-clock monitoring

Your renters will have more peace of mind if they have protection against burglars, specifically when Orlando is unfamiliar territory. In the event a thief makes an effort to break in, your home alarm system will not only sound a siren but will also ping your around-the-clock monitoring professionals. Regardless of your location, emergency services will be on its way. Your monitoring specialists are capable of acting as your point person and loop you in as soon as you're available.

Besides break-ins, your monitoring hub can be connected with fire alarms, flood detectors, and CO detectors. It is likely to be upsetting for your guest if a water heater springs a leak or something catches fire. You not only will be sent a smartphone update that an urgent situation has happened, but an agent will also authorize emergency services while you're en route.
