NoiseAware introduces CrowdControl feature
US: Noise monitoring platform NoiseAware has launched CrowdControl – a new feature that will allow customers to view short-term-rental property occupancy levels alongside noise.
Available to all NoiseAware customers who own or manage single-family vacation-rental homes, CrowdControl uses an adaptive algorithm to detect unusual increases in occupancy that may signal an unauthorised crowd is gathering.
CrowdControl joins NoiseAware’s growing list of in-stay monitoring features, which includes privacy-safe noise monitoring technology, and AutoResolve guest messaging – which resolves 90 per cent of noise without host intervention. The enhanced suite of services gives property owners and managers deeper insight than ever before into what is happening at their rentals between check-in and check-out, without compromising guest privacy.
The feature is part of NoiseAware’s ongoing campaign to enable more responsible renting practices, and support balanced, sensible short-term-rental regulation.
NoiseAware CEO Kevin Locraft, who joined the company in March, said: “We’re excited to give our customers a powerful tool to uncover over-occupancy at their properties, and mitigate the damages, complaints and costs that can result from crowds. With the launch of CrowdControl, we’re advancing our mission to empower short-term-rental operators while protecting guest privacy, and advancing the short-term-rental industry’s sustainability as a whole.”
To enable CrowdControl, NoiseAware customers must opt into the feature from their existing account. Once CrowdControl is enabled, NoiseAware’s noise sensor becomes an occupancy sensor, too, and users can see occupancy data charted alongside noise data on their NoiseAware dashboard.
Users can also choose to receive an alert when their noise and occupancy sensor detects elevated occupancy levels at the property, and can enable or disable CrowdControl for individual properties in their portfolio.
NoiseAware recently claimed the Consumer Champion accolade at the 2022 Shortyz Awards, held at Skyline London.
