Smart Key Codes Make It Easier To Rotate Renters

If a renter moves on, you should ensure they no longer have access to the property. In the event they took a key with them, then they could possibly re-enter your home. To counteract this concern, you might switch out your locks each time a lease ends or utilize smart keypad locks with your home’s security. By using keypad locks, you can allocate each occupant their own code number that will expire when the lease ends. If past occupants return and use their old code on the keypad, you will get an alert on your phone.

Program the lights to come on at specific hours during the day and night and let some music play for a while, and a potential burglar will quickly reconsider their plans.
