Protecting Investment Properties With Room Alert

Why Do Investment Properties Need Environment Monitoring?

Proactive environment monitoring is an extremely important investment for businesses, facilities and other organizations because environmental downtime and damages can lead to upset customers, the potential for employee injury, costly repairs and possibly bankruptcy.  

Environment monitoring is truly essential for any environment that needs to be monitored for concerns that can arise when no one is around or on-site. This applies to residential homes that people are actively living in, investment properties, seasonal/ vacation homes and other properties as well. Environment monitoring increases family and resident safety, provides security when no one is on-site and protects priceless, expensive or otherwise irreplaceable items. It prevents structural damage due to water, mold and flooding. Overall it’s a strong component to strengthen the longevity and success of your properties for years to come. 

Investment properties are extremely susceptible to environment concerns and damage occurring without anyone on site. 30% of downtime and costly damages are caused by environmental factors such as extreme temperature and humidity, power loss, flooding, water damage, mold and mildew growth, poor airflow, smoke and fire damage and more. Unless someone is on-site 24/7, the only way to be notified is with trusted environment monitoring hardware. Any business owner, landlord or property manager who isn’t monitoring the environment conditions in their space is at an increased risk of losing everything after just one unforeseen downtime event. Protect your investment properties, assets and tenants with Room Alert and ensure you never lose money, resources, or business due to downtime such as an unresolved water leak that leads to flooding, mold, toxins in the air and even structural damage. Thinking proactively means installing the proper environment monitors and sensors for your space.

If you have our Digital Active Power Sensor with Temperature installed, then Room Alert can tell the real-time power status of any electric device by simply strapping it to any AC electrical cord.
