Our guests perceive RentEye as a typical sensor, like a smoke detector — we haven't received any negative feedback about it.
One critical aspect is the impact on neighbors, as these apartments are typically located in residential buildings and blocks. Grzegorz is committed to ensuring that neighbors do not suffer because of adjacent short-term rentals. Until recently, neighbor complaints were his only source of information regarding potential issues. It’s not uncommon for apartments designed for two guests to host parties with dozens of attendees, some even spilling into the hallways and stairwells.
Protecting peace and property
Among the most costly damages Grzegorz has encountered are water-damaged parquet floors and ruined laminate panels. There have been instances of chandeliers torn from ceilings and nightstands thrown from fourth-floor windows onto the street. Dealing with the aftermath of such events involves finding alternative accommodations for incoming guests, documenting damages for insurance claims, notifying the police, and coordinating repair services. This is not only a significant workload but also results in substantial costs that no one wants to bear.
Fortunately, thanks to devices like RentEye, Grzegorz and his team can now act even faster than the neighbors and prevent their frustration. The implementation of noise monitoring has brought a newfound level of security and peace, not only for the guests but also for the company’s employees responsible for property safety.
Proactive noise management
RentEye has proven to be an invaluable tool for Grzegorz’s business. When noise levels exceed acceptable limits, the system provides early alerts, allowing for immediate intervention. Instead of dealing with the consequences of a disruptive event, the company can address potential issues before they escalate. Grzegorz and his team kindly suggest to guests, who are informed of the RentEye sensor’s presence through door stickers and visible placement, to relocate to more suitable areas for gatherings. In most cases, this proactive approach successfully maintains the peaceful atmosphere.
Remarkably, there have been no negative reactions from guests regarding the RentEye sensor. Instead, the feedback from neighbors has been overwhelmingly positive. They appreciate the efforts made by Grzegorz’s company to preserve their comfort and peace, ultimately creating a harmonious coexistence between short-term rentals and long-term residents.
