Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) November 17, 2015
PointCentral, the recognized leader in keyless Smart Home solutions for vacation rental management companies, today announced they have been selected by Topsail Realty, Topsail, North Carolina, and Village Realty and Management Services, Inc., Outer Banks, North Carolina, as the supplier-of-choice for cellular-based Smart Home technologies. When fully installed, the PointCentral system will enable Topsail Realty and Village Realty to centrally monitor and control access and temperature across all of their vacation rental properties.
“For vacation rental management companies as large as Topsail and Village, the benefits of our Smart Home technology to their businesses, their homeowners and their guests are very significant and provide a strategic advantage,” said Greg Burge, president of PointCentral. “We’re talking major operational savings due to automated check-in and check-out, and housekeeper and inspector notifications. Plus, they won’t have to send someone out to a property to let in a guest who forgot his key. Now it can all be done remotely from their desktop or mobile app. When you add the energy savings for the homeowners and the added security and convenience for guests, it’s a win-win all around.”
Keyless Smart Home technology is quickly gaining ground with vacation rental homeowners across the U.S. The energy savings alone are a major motivator. Savvy vacation rental managers are finding they need to get in front of this wave and adopt an enterprise-class Smart Home system before they lose control of properties to their homeowners.
“Moving to PointCentral gives us a reliable cellular-based keyless solution,” stated Mike Harrington, owner of Topsail Realty. “In addition, it provides real-time property intelligence for access, temperature, and house ready status. This streamlines our operations and makes turn days much easier. It was an easy strategic decision for our homeowners and us.”
"We expect some streamlining of operations,” said Bob Oakes, President of Village Realty and Management Services, Inc. “But the true benefit is the real-time information and energy savings for the property owner, and the foundation for a more efficient home."
