Have you been thinking of renting out your property using Airbnb or similar service? While this can be very profitable, there are a few things we can help you with that will reduce the risk of being another host horror story. One of our unique alarm installations could help protect your property, guests and peace of mind from unwanted parties or disturbances.
Home Security Systems: Airbnb Community Standards
Airbnb has a specific set of Community Standards/Rules that a host must attend to. It includes the Do’s and Dont’s of their policy and some helpful hints on how to set up your home security system for the comfort of your guests and the best possible protection for your property.
“If you’re a host and you have any type of security camera or other recording device in or around a listing, even if it’s not turned on or hooked up, we require that you indicate its presence in your House Rules. We also require you to disclose if an active recording is taking place. If a host discloses the device after booking, Airbnb will allow the guest to cancel the reservation and receive a refund. Host cancellation penalties may apply.” – Airbnb
This means that you can install CCTV cameras around your property, as long as you have the documentation provided to your guests.
While Airbnb doesn’t request you to install any alarm system, it is NZ law to install smoke alarms when renting out a property. So why not have a smoke detector that integrates with your monitored home security system.
Here at Nutech, we can set up a personalized response plan on who to contact including the fire services. With a 24 hour response to these alarms, your property will have the best chance when it comes to fire and smoke damage.

Key-less entry is incredibly useful for any property that has people coming and going, these systems provide ease of mind when allowing access to cleaning services, babysitters or any neighbors and family you wish to have a code.
Limited Access Control
Do you have cabinets, valuables or even whole sections of your property you wish guests wouldn’t touch? With an entry sensor we can let you know when someone finds their way into these areas. Some times asking just isn’t enough to keep people out.
These sensors alert you if someone opens a specific window, cupboard, entry way or cabinet. With the added bonus of being informed if anything is left open when they leave.
