Smart Locks Make It Easier To Rotate Renters

If a tenant vacates your property, you should ensure they no longer have a way to enter the house. If you use traditional keys and they have a copy, then they have the ability to come back later. To combat this problem, you can change the locks after each renter or have smart locks installed with your home security system. By using keypad locks, you can give each occupant their own code number that can deactivate when the lease ends. If past occupants return and try an old key code, you will receive a notification sent to your phone.

Preset certain light bulbs to activate at different times of the night and play music for a few hours, and a curious prowler will think twice before trying to enter. With the right security system, you have the ability to schedule components through a simple smartphone interface.
