Advanced Keypad Locks Make It Easier To Rotate Renters

After a tenant vacates your property, you should go through the process so they don’t have a way to enter the house. In the event they took a key with them, then they could possibly re-enter your home. To offset this issue, you might switch out your locks each time a lease ends or have smart locks installed that integrate with your home security system.
