Smart Key Codes Make It Easier To Rotate Renters

When a guest vacates your property, sometimes it's a guess to know if they will be absent forever. If they took or copied a key, then they have the ability to re-enter your home. To combat this problem, you might switch out your locks each time a lease ends or install smart locks with your security system. By using smart locks, you can allocate each renter a custom code that will no longer work when they vacate the property. In the event renters return and use their old code on the keypad, you will get an alert on your smartphone.

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

If you own a rental or vacation property in Jacksonville, you also have to ensure it’s protected, including when it's vacant. The best way to do that is to make it look like there's someone home. By linking your home security system to automation devices like interior and exterior lights, audio systems, and thermostats, your unit will consistently appear to be inhabited. Set the lights to come on at regular intervals throughout the day and let some music play for a while, and a would-be intruder will think twice before trying to enter. With the right security system, you are able to program devices with a simple smartphone interface.
