As the property manager of a vacation home, you likely have a to-do list a mile long. Security is at the top of the list for most property managers, so finding ways to easily manage the property’s security is essential. Surveillance systems not only enable you to keep an eye on the property and watch for threats but deter them as well. Take a look at some security tips to keep in mind and find out how a surveillance system installed by The Flying Locksmiths can help!
The House Looks Empty
An empty vacation home is like an invitation to anyone looking to break in. In fact, if the property is located in an area with other vacation homes, there may be burglars that are waiting until the off-season to break into the property.
Turning on lights or using a system that automatically turns on certain lights at certain times can help make a building looked lived in, and thus a less attractive target for thieves, but an even better idea for security is combining your light system with a surveillance system to deter potential thieves.
You Live Elsewhere
As the manager of a property, rather than an owner or tenant, you obviously don’t live in the home. Whether you live a few streets over or across town, you need to be able to keep an eye on every window and door at all times to make sure you know what’s going on. A surveillance system will do just that, as it will be installed and customized to the property. Once we’re done installing your system, you’ll be able to access it from afar.
A Window Was Left Unlocked
One unlocked window can compromise the security of the entire property. We recommend creating a list of every window and door and checking them off as you lock each throughout the home. However, a surveillance system can help fill in the gaps and keep the property safe in case you – or the property owners, the most recent renters, the cleaning crew or anyone else – missed something.
No matter the particular security problems you face as a property manager, a surveillance system can help you protect any vacation home. Give the team at The Flying Locksmiths a call today for a quote on a surveillance system and more information about what we can do for you!
