PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) April 25, 2018
PointCentral, the recognized leader in enterprise-scale Smart Home Automation solutions for multi-family and single-family managers of short and long- term properties, today announced the company has established a new interfacing ability with Yardi Systems, Inc., Santa Barbara, Calif. The link provides a robust technical interface that connects PointCentral Smart Home solutions to Yardi property management software, further automating how multi-family managers can leverage technology to improve their operations and delight residents.
“While smart home automation has appeal to renters as an amenity, the beauty of our system is that we were designed first and foremost as a tool to streamline operations. HVAC is one of the biggest expenses for property managers, both in terms of energy consumption and maintenance,” said Sean Miller, president of PointCentral. “We not only limit the ability for a resident 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, create rules for the HVAC system to automatically sense and control humidity levels, as well as access analytics on how an individual unit is performing in order to remotely diagnose issues. 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.”
