What you’ll get integrating Hostaway with Alertify
Hostaway goes above and beyond its inherent capabilities by collaborating with Alertify, providing an additional layer of property protection against noise disturbances, indoor smoking, and large crowds. Let’s discuss the ways this integration elevates your Short-Term Rental (STR) management experience.
- Instant noise and smoking alerts
The Alertify device acts as a vigilant guardian, continuously monitoring noise, smoke, and large crowds within the rental property. Upon picking up a violation, Alertify promptly dispatches notifications via SMS and email to the host, offering immediate awareness of the violation. For persistent violations, hosts may receive up to two follow-up notifications, enabling timely intervention and necessary action.
- Guest Alerts
Automated Guest Alerts play a pivotal role in communicating promptly with guests when a noise or smoke violation occurs. These alerts are customizable, allowing hosts to tailor messages, determine the frequency of follow-ups, and choose whether to receive all notifications or solely the follow-up messages. This flexibility empowers hosts to respond effectively, especially when initial guest responses are lacking.
- After-incident reports
The integration of Hostaway with Alertify grants access to after-incident reports, providing immediate downloadable insights into the type of violation and the guest responsible. These reports prove invaluable for dispute resolution, fine issuance, and upholding the overall integrity of your property.
- Unit mapping
Streamline management tasks by mapping your units from Hostaway to Alertify. This feature enables hosts to identify which guests are associated with violations in specific units, offering a comprehensive overview of properties across both platforms. This seamless integration enhances efficiency in managing and addressing issues.
