Ways To Protect Your Rental Property In Lima

Whether your leasing the your parents' old condo or you are a real estate investor with a diverse rental portfolio, you are aware of how difficult it can be to protect a rental property in Lima. When empty, your place might be appealing for thieves or vandals. And if you have tenants, you also have to try keeping your tenants secure.

From security monitoring to home automation, here are some ways to help you protect your Lima rental property.

Safeguard Your Rentals With Home Security Monitoring

A proven method to discourage criminal activity at your rental is installing a monitored security system. Your renters will enjoy more peace of mind when they feel protected against intruders, particularly if Lima is unfamiliar territory. If a burglar does try to break in, your advanced alarm system will notify your ADT monitoring center while the warning siren warns all people within the home. You can even receive a notification to your phone when surveillance camera picks up unusual activity.

Advanced Keypad Locks Add Security When You Have New Guests

After a renter vacates your property, you should make sure they are cut from a way to enter the house. In the event they took a key with them, then they could possibly come back later. To counteract this concern, you might switch out your locks each time a lease ends or have smart locks installed with your home’s security. By using keypad locks, you can provide every tenant a unique code that can deactivate when they vacate the property. If past occupants return and use their old code on the keypad, you will receive a notification on your smartphone.

Automation Protects Your Rental Property In Lima -- Even When Your Property is Vacant

When you invest in a rental or vacation property in Lima, you need to protect the unit when it's vacant. a smart method to do this is to give an impression that there's someone home. By connecting your property’s security system to home automation components like interior and exterior lights, audio systems, and thermostats, your unit will look occupied at all times. Set the lights to turn 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. With the right security system, you have the ability to schedule components through a mobile security app.
