Renting Out your Second Home? Protect it with Presence Secuirty

Brian Hinderberger

Many people who have a second home allow others to rent it for their own residence. The immediate question that comes to a renter's mind may be, "who's watching me?" As a landlord, having a security system could be a deterrent for potential tenants. Presence Security helps you earn that privacy confidence from your tenant by empowering them to monitor the home themselves and share specific notifications to you.

For Their Eyes Only

Our solution for long-term rental agencies is to empower your renters and have them monitor your investment. Presence Security system that helps convert their home into a Smart Home. When you connect the gateway in their home to their own Internet connection you can establish the account under their own email and they'll get notifications on their own phone. No one else will be able to see the devices and sensors with our password protected free app but your tenant.

Share Notifications on What's Important to You

You can ask them to share notifications from specific sensors that are important to your investment, and it won't violate their own privacy. Now if you have a water leak, if the house temperatures are too low or high, or if you have an unauthorized entry to things like the owner's storage shed you'll know about it in tandem with your renter. This is a proactive approach to the unexpected issues that may come up in your home investment. You could even establish a reward plan, possibly a discount off of rent, for them if they helping identify and stopping an issue they've spotted from their Presence Security system.
