Smart Locks Simplify Security With New Renters

If a tenant vacates your property, you should ensure they are cut from access. If you use traditional keys and they have a copy, then they have the ability to re-enter your home. To offset this issue, you might switch out your locks each time a lease ends or utilize smart keypad locks that integrate with your security system. With smart locks, you can allocate every tenant their own code number that can deactivate once they leave. If past occupants return and attempt to use their outdated code, you will get an alert sent to your phone.

Program your lighting to come on at regular intervals throughout the day and let some music play for a while, and a potential burglar will think twice before trying to enter. With the right security system, you can set schedules through a simple smartphone interface.
