AirBnB is an extremely popular way to rent out property short term. However, with short term rentals comes more opportunity for break ins, lost keys and general security issues due to the constant changing of guests. However, there are ways to ensure that your AirBnB home security is the best it can be, yet easy to access for guests.
Key safes are a popular way to give guests access to the home without having to find a time to exchange keys. If there are multiple guests staying at the same property, the key safe allows them to come and go as they please without having to worry about being locked out.
Restricted key systems for AirBnB home security
A restricted key system or master key system ensures that all keys given to guests cannot be copied. This is important to keep in mind. If prior guests have access to the property it may put future guests in danger.
Lock away valuables
Property owners may wish to stay in their AirBnB at certain times of the year. In this case, it’s advised that any personal items left at the property are securely locked in a store room, spare bedroom, or garage store room. This will ensure they’re not damaged or stolen but still at the property for convenience.
Ensure your home is correctly insured for short term rentals. This will make sure you are effectively covered, not only for damages but for loss of rent for last minute cancellations or if a guest is injured in your home.
Smart Security Alarm System
Consider installing a smart security alarm system. This means that you’ll have the ability to control your home security system remotely and be notified when the alarm is triggered.
