Ways To Protect Your Rental Property In Brooklyn

Whether you’re renting out your parents' old condo or you have a diverse portfolio, you understand that it can be challenging to protect a rental property in Brooklyn. If it’s not occupied, your place may look enticing for a burglar or vandal. Also, if you are currently full, you have to be conscious of keeping your tenants secure.

Including solutions like security monitoring and home automation, here are a few tips and tricks to assist in the protection of your Brooklyn rental property.

Safeguard Your Investment With Security Monitoring

An effective way to prevent criminal activity at your rental is installing a monitored security system. Your guests can sleep easy if they have protection against intruders, primarily when Brooklyn is somewhere they’ve never visited before. In the event a robber tries to break in, your alarms will alert your 24/7 ADT monitoring team while the warning siren rouses your visitors or tenants. You also can have notifications sent to your phone when surveillance camera picks up a potential burglar.

To combat this problem, you can change the locks after each renter or have smart locks installed that work with with your home’s security. With smart locks, you can provide each occupant their own code number that will no longer work when the lease ends. In the event renters return and try an old key code, you will get an alert sent to your phone.
