As an Airbnb host, you have a revolving door of strangers entering and exiting your investment property on any given day. And while we’d all love to believe in the goodness of humankind, the reality is, some people just aren’t trustworthy. Despite the extensive vetting process, your guests must submit to before setting foot in your Airbnb, there’s always a chance you’ll end up with a dishonest patron. To protect your property, and alleviate your fears around stolen or damaged goods, installing home security cameras in your Airbnb is a must. Here to discuss why home security systems or cameras are a worthwhile investment for the Airbnb owner, are the automation professionals at Bravas.
Home Security Cameras Help You Monitor Your Property
If you own or manage an Airbnb, it’s not unusual to have out-of-state properties that you may not be capable of visiting regularly. With automated home security cameras, you can quickly and easily get a visual of what is occurring inside and outside your property with the simple touch of a screen. Because you can operate automated security cameras with your smartphone, you’ll always have access to your property’s security system, even from thousands of miles away.
Cameras Help You Avoid Refunds
Security cameras installed at key points throughout your property can help prevent you from having to issue refunds to “no-show” guests. According to many Airbnb owners, guests often attempt to circumvent Airbnb’s refund policy by uploading scam photos of unclean or unsuitable living spaces to the company’s resolution center. However, with strategically-placed security cameras, you can prove that these scam photos are in no way related to your property. Even if you’re hundreds of miles away from the structure, you can easily pull accurate video footage to squash these scam artists’ claims.
Added Security for Your Guests
Any vacationer can benefit from the added protection home security cameras can provide. Losing valuables in a travel destination is never fun, but you can give your guests extra peace of mind with strategically-placed cameras in and around your property. While you’re required to have insurance on your Airbnb, security cameras offer an extra layer of protection. In the case of a break-in or theft of your guests’ belongings, video footage can help you track down the offender(s) and compensate your patrons.
