Smart homes seem to be popping up everywhere and this rings true throughout the vacation property rental industry as well. A value-added benefit, renters are willing to pay more for smart features that make their stays more easy and convenient. According to Alarm.com, 86% of Millennial renters are willing to pay more for a smart home property compared to 65% of Baby Boomer renters. Here’s how a Vacation Rental Management (VRM) Solution can help differentiate your property.
Long-gone are the days of houseguests needing to go to the Vacation Property Management office when arriving to pick up a physical key. Keyless entry allows for authorized guests to easily access the rental property during their stay and makes turnovers a breeze by assigning guests, property management, as well as cleaning and maintenance vendors unique user codes to enter and leave. Even receive notifications each time someone comes and goes.
Reduced Energy Costs
Set minimum and maximum temperature and humidity thresholds at your property helping to manage your heating and air conditioning bills. If a door or window is left open for a few moments too long, your HVAC system will automatically shut off. Likewise, if the home’s humidity is too high or low, your AC system will readjust.
Reduce potential liabilities from occurring at your property and proactively prevent large, unexpected home repair expenses. For example, be notified if a water leak is sensed or the HVAC unit is nearing failure. Benefit from real-time property awareness, access monitoring, HVAC monitoring, water monitoring, and energy management available through a centralized dashboard. Access all the information you need, when you need it.
