VIENNA, Va. (PRWEB) September 22, 2015
PointCentral, the recognized leader in keyless smart home solutions for vacation rental and residential property management, today announced a series of new customers. Vacation rental management customers are adopting advanced Smart Home technology to enhance property security, energy efficiency and access control, and provide their guests with a unique experience.
PointCentral’s cellular-based cloud services offer businesses that manage multiple properties improved security, convenient guest access control and energy efficiency. Proven solutions offer customers a reliable service that is quick and easy to setup. The intelligent services extend the benefits of the smart home to the vacation rental manager by offering keyless entry, automated device control and business management services like automatic check-in and check-out.
“For months now, we have seen a marked increase in the number of customers adopting PointCentral smart home solutions,” said Greg Burge, president of PointCentral. “Vacation rental managers as well as residential property managers are realizing the many benefits of centralized control of access and temperature for all their properties.”
Some of the more recent customers to sign on with PointCentral include Distinctive Beach Rentals, Fort Myers Beach, Fla., TriPower Vacation Rentals, Fort Myers Beach, Fla., Deadwood Connections, Rapid City, S.D., and Premiere Capital Realty, Orlando, Fla.
“Going with PointCentral has proven to be a good decision for us,” said Amy Loughrey, owner of Distinctive Beach Rentals. “The installation was a good experience and they have been very responsive to our needs. Best of all, we now have a real-time view of the locks and thermostats at all of our properties. I love it!"
Keyless Improves Security
One of the biggest reasons why many property managers are adopting smart home technology is to go keyless. Hard keys are frequently copied, lost or are stolen - putting guest’s safety at risk and creating additional liability risk for property managers. With PointCentral, each guest or tenant automatically receives a new lock code that expires at the end of the stay to greatly enhance access control and property security.
Much More Than Keyless
Customers using PointCentral Smart Home solutions are able to combine the advantages of keyless locks with an enterprise-grade central control platform that uses the codes entered into the locks to automate guest check-in and check-out, and alert and track housekeepers and inspectors. Customers can also control thermostat and pool settings and be alerted when temperatures fall outside their min/max settings – providing significant energy savings.
“Since our Smart Home technology uses the more reliable cellular network instead of the property’s wi-fi network, our customers enjoy much greater stability and up-time,” stated Burge.
Vacation Rental Management
Smart Home technology is an ideal fit for the vacation rental management market as it gives managers more visibility into access and energy usage of their properties – including occupancy and cleaning status. By eliminating hard keys and going keyless, managers are able to provide a much more secure stay for their guests. With PointCentral Smart Home solutions, vacation rental managers and their homeowners are reducing their risk, saving energy costs, reducing turn time, and improving the guest experience.
Residential Property Management
In the residential property management market, Smart Home technology enables prospective tenants to schedule and tour a property on their own – unattended. They just show up and enter the code they were given into the lock. As with the vacation rental market, managers are seeing significant savings in operating expenses and energy costs thanks to centralized control of thermostats and locks. Best of all, tenants absolutely love Smart Home technology and are more likely to rent a home that has it.
