Whether you rent a single property or you are a real estate investor with an array of investment properties, you understand of how difficult it can be to protect a rental property in York. When empty, your unit may look enticing for a burglar or vandal. And if you have guests, you also have to try keeping your tenants secure.

From security monitoring to home automation, here are a few tips and tricks to help you protect your York rental property.

Safeguard Your Properties With A Monitored Security System

An effective way to prevent theft or vandalism at your rental property is installing a monitored security system. Your guests will rest easier when they feel protected against prowlers, primarily when York is unfamiliar territory. If a thief attempts to break in, your security system will alert your 24/7 ADT monitoring team while the high-decibel alarm alerts all people within the home. You can even receive a notification to your phone in the event a security camera picks up a potential burglar.

If past occupants return and attempt to use their outdated code, you will receive a notification sent to your phone.
