Providing our vacation rental management customers with greater management of their properties within the RNS platform, including their PointCentral Smart Home solution, is a real advantage for them and us.
Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) October 04, 2017
PointCentral, the recognized leader in enterprise-scale Smart Home Automation solutions for vacation rental, residential and multi-family property managers, today announced the company has established a technology partnership with Rental Network Software (RNS), Bradenton, Fla. The partnership provides a robust technical interface that links PointCentral Smart Home solutions to RNS vacation rental software, further automating how VRMs can leverage technology to improve their operations, delight guests and keep owners happy.
“Providing our vacation rental management customers with greater management of their properties within the RNS platform, including their PointCentral Smart Home solution, is a real advantage for them and us,” said Bob Ackerman, president of RNS. “With our reservation information linked to the PointCentral system, vacation rental guests will automatically receive their lock code prior to arrival, even if they are early. Plus, the temperature in the property will automatically adjust to a comfortable level for their arrival, and back to an energy-saving level after they leave. Our PM’s staff and vendors also receive unique access codes that only allow them to access a unit at predetermined times, allowing us to see who was in a unit, when and for how long.”
While having a pre-cooled unit is a great way to start a guest’s vacation off on the right foot, PointCentral’s HVAC capabilities extend far beyond simply delighting the guest.
“HVAC is one of the biggest expenses for property managers and/or property owners, both in terms of energy consumption and maintenance,” said Sean Miller, president of PointCentral. “We not only limit the ability for a rental guest to set an unreasonable target temperature and potentially freeze the HVAC unit, we also allow the property manager to prevent staff from setting unreasonable temps when a unit is unoccupied, as well as creating rules for the HVAC system to automatically sense and control humidity levels. All of these actions can save 10% to 15% on monthly energy bills as well as reduce maintenance costs over the life of the HVAC unit.”
