Ways To Protect Your Rental Property In New Orleans

Whether you’re renting out your parents' old condo or you have a diverse rental portfolio, you know of how difficult it can be to protect a rental property in New Orleans. When empty, your unit may be a prime target for thieves or vandals. And if you have renters, you also have to try safeguarding human beings.

Ranging from 24-hour monitoring to advanced automation systems, here are a few tips and tricks to help you protect your New Orleans rental property.

Use Round-The-Clock Monitoring To Protect Your Vacation Or Rental House

An effective way to prevent theft or vandalism at your rental property is security monitoring. Your renters will enjoy more peace of mind when they have protection against prowlers, primarily when New Orleans is unfamiliar territory. If a burglar attempts to break in, your alarms will alert your ADT monitoring center while the easy-to-hear alarm alerts everyone inside. You also can have alerts sent to your mobile device if a security camera picks up unusual activity.

Advanced Keypad Locks Make It Easier To Rotate Renters

After a guest moves on, sometimes it's a guess to know if they will be absent forever. If you use traditional keys and they have a copy, then they have the ability to to regain entry. To counteract this concern, you might switch out your locks each time a lease ends or have smart locks installed that work with with your home security system. By using smart locks, you can give 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 sent to your phone.

Set your lighting to turn on at specific hours during the day and night and let some music play for a while, and a would-be intruder will think twice before trying to enter. With the proper home security, you can set schedules through a simple smartphone interface.
