As a residential and/or vacation property manager you want to provide owners with the best service at a fair price. Additionally, keeping properties in their best condition and extending their longevity maximizes rents for all parties.
Managing properties efficiently, yet cost effectively is the challenge. Wouldn’t it be nice to know what’s going on in the HVAC closets, laundry rooms, and infrastructure before the little problems develop into costly repairs?
Monnit has developed a wireless sensor solution for property management companies to know instantly when a problem starts. For example:
- Place water sensors in HVAC closets at complexes with more than a ground floor. Know about water heater leaks before they spread to the apartments below, damaging wood, dry walls, padding and carpets.
- Avoid frozen pipes by using a temperature sensor to notify you before damage occurs – especially in vacant properties.
- Use local light sensors to monitor light output in parking lots, underground garages, path and walkways, eliminating hazards that can lead to costly litigation.
- Install water sensors in local and community laundry rooms.
As a property manager, knowing instantly if there is a leak in a water heater or washing machine main line is the difference between a quick fix with a little clean-up, and a protracted, costly repair job. Using renters as your “monitoring system” is not the most cost effective and reliable way of taking care of your properties. Using wireless sensor technology allows you to react immediately to any given situation, whether the property is vacant or occupied.
The question that needs answering is: can you afford NOT to have wireless sensors helping you maintain your properties?
Most property and vacation management companies with multiple assets under management have units tens, hundreds, and even thousands of miles away from their headquarter’s central location.
Implementing Monnit’s wireless monitoring sensors and service, know immediately from Seattle what’s happening with an asset in San Francisco, advising the renters or your local office as to the proper course of action.
Property management is a competitive industry. By offering customers the ability to know at the same time you do of problems in their units, you're giving them not only peace of mind but a value added service the competition doesn’t have.
Monnit’s wireless sensor kits are ready to go out of the box – anyone can install the sensor network; no technical experience necessary. Simply pull the sensors out of the box, place in the desired location and turn them on. (Click here for more detail on how the Monnit Wireless Sensor System works.)
