Now that we’re approaching the summer holiday season, make sure that your holiday home security is up to scratch! With help from the intruder alarms team from RACAM, we will ensure that your holiday-let property is fully secure and prepared for short-term lets over the summer period.
As we mentioned in our last post, the RACAM team are passionate about ensuring all aspects of domestic and commercial properties are kept safe and secure throughout the year. Unsure if your holiday let property is in need of a security update? Here are some telling signs.
Signs You Need to Update your Holiday Home Security – Advice from RACAM
New Holiday Rental Property
Is this the first year you’re letting out your property to holiday-goers? If you are new to the whole process of managing a holiday-let, make sure that you have carefully surveyed your property and implemented necessary security equipment and procedures. If the property has no system at all, an expert from RACAM will carry out all the necessary checks.
Can’t Be Accessed Remotely
Another sign that your holiday home security needs to be updated is if your current equipment cannot be accessed using an app or monitored remotely. An app integrated security system is essential if you live far away from your holiday-let property. Being able to instantly access the CCTV system and stream it live if need be will allow a much more efficient and effective procedure should there should be any criminal or unusual behaviour happening on the premises of your holiday property. As well as bringing your security system into the 21st century, implementing an app-based system will give you peace of mind that your property is protected at all times.
Hasn’t Been Upgraded in 10 Years
And finally, at RACAM, we understand that it can be difficult to remember when it is time to upgrade and update aspects of properties like security systems. However, if you have had your existing system for a period of 10 or more years, it is very important you think of upgrading. Security technology has advanced dramatically over the past couple of years. Make sure that the people staying in your holiday home are as safe as possible with the help from an updated and advanced security system from RACAM.
