Protecting Rental Property and Neighbours
Swedish tech company Minut has launched an all-in-one home sensor for the short term rental market which combines a smart home alarm, noise monitoring and ‘home insights’ from sensor data with mobile access and instant alerts.
Designed to allow homes to be protected without surveillance, the Minut app allows hosts to receive real-time home analytics on sound, motion, temperature and humidity in their property from anywhere in the world – and prevent loud parties as well as build trust with neighbours.
With a subscription plan, a multi-home dashboard is available which allows hosts to keep tabs on their entire property portfolio. The dashboard includes historical data to challenge false complaints. The easy to use app allows for users to be added and can be installed by any team member. Instant real time sound level alerts can be sent to the app enabling users to act quickly and avoid neighbour complaints. The app also features a chat function between users.
Camera-free technology and on-device sound-recognition ensure no personal information is ever picked-up or conversations recorded.
Minut CEO, Nils Mattisson, explains:
“From the beginning, Minut has approached security differently. Privacy in the home has always been central to our approach and we have developed the Minut home sensor with privacy first in mind. We are proud to offer a solution for hosts to make sure their properties are being protected and help them to prevent unwanted noise concerns in the neighbourhood, while still prioritising the privacy of their guests staying in them.
“We strongly believe that sharing should work for everyone and ultimately it comes down to a feeling of trust. Trust that your property, privacy and neighbourhood are being protected.”
Early adopters of the solution, Kristijan from residential lettings agent, Dreamstay Rentals, adds: “Minut has made running our short term rentals much easier and less worrisome. Minut has become an irreplaceable tool for my business.”
