Best ways to protect your rental property in Napa

March 18, 2022

Irregardless of whether you lease out the family lake house or you run a diverse portfolio of Airbnbs, it can be challenging to protect your rental properties in Napa. With a constant turnover of guests, it's not hard to lose a key when someone leaves or realize that you’re without costly electronics or other valuables. In addition, what would you do when there’s a fire or flood at the property while you're offsite?

From enhanced locks to comprehensive security with home automation, here are some helpful tips on how to protect your Airbnb in Napa. 

Put away keys with your Napa smart locks

When a guest checks out, they could leave the keys behind for the ensuing occupant. However, if someone snatched or secretly made copies of a key, they would be able to re-enter at a later time. Needless to say, you might replace your locks when a key goes missing, but that takes time and money.

You'll want to install smart locks that operate alongside your home security system to alleviate these worries. You will then provide every guest their own unique entry code. When they check out, don't worry about a key dropoff. All you need to do is customize the door code to no longer work after they exit. If previous lodgers return and try their previous access code on the number pad, you will be warned with a notification of a failed entry on your smartphone.

Smart home technology makes available rentals appear occupied at all times

It's nice to think that your Napa rental property will have guests, but that isn’t likely to always be the case. However, you always want to make it appear that someone is home so your rental isn’t an easy mark for prowlers. Implementing home automation into your property’s security gives you the chance to take advantage of smart lighting, motion sensors, and surveillance systems that make your rental seem inhabited.

You can put your plan in motion by scheduling your smart lights to switch on at specific hours of the night. Then, use your security app to warn you if your exterior cameras spot an intruder hiding around your perimeter or approaching your main entrance. You have the opportunity to use the talk functionality to make them know you can see them or arrange for your smart lights to automatically come on when a camera or motion detection equipment identifies something unusual.

Protect your Napa Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring

Your renters will be more relaxed if they are safeguarded against intruders, specifically when Napa is somewhat unfamiliar. If a robber tries to gain entry, your security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also alert your 24/7 monitoring professionals. Regardless of your location, emergency services will be forthcoming. Your monitoring specialists will even act as your authorized go-between and loop you in when you're available.

Along with break-ins, your monitoring team can link to fire alarms, flood sensors, and CO detectors. It would be understandably upsetting for your visitor if a pipe bursts or something catches fire. You not only will get a smartphone notification that an emergency has occurred, but a representative will also arrange for help from emergency personnel while you're in transit.
