Security while in updates

I own several rental properties situated all around the local area! Some of them are buildings featuring several apartments & others are single-family homes, whenever the tenants transfer out, there are always considerable renovation & repairs that need to be completed before I can bring in modern tenants! About a year ago, I started work on one of the single-family properties, then i needed to put down modern floors, update some of the windows & update the bedroom & bathroom.

I feel that there are people who watch for properties that are vacated, but they take the opportunity to break-in & steal whatever is available.

The washer, dryer & some of my construction materials were taken from the dwelling within a week after the former tenants moved out. I am thankful that the appliances were quite seasoned & there was only a small amount of materials on the premises. The thieves even stole the garden hose, but because of this, I invested into a house security system for the rental property. I included motion-activated security lights all the way around the perimeter of the property. I added surveillance cameras, automated door locks & glass breakage sensors. Along with access to real-time video footage by way of my smartphone, I received alerts if anyone entered the property. If they attempted to enter without punching in the proper code, an seriously loud alarm would have gone off. I know the greatest deterrent to a break-in was the signs indicating a security system situated in the front yard. I am gradually adding security systems to every dwelling I own for the protection of the dwelling & safety of the tenants.
