Round-Up: Minut’s Smoke Detection, Altovita’s Instant Bookings, and Key Data’s STAMA Partnership

Noise Monitor Provider Minut Launches Cigarette Smoke Detection Feature, Announces Avantio Integration

Minut has introduced a new feature to their home monitoring solution: the ability to detect cigarette smoke in rental properties. This addition is designed to help enforce no-smoking policies.

Unlike standard smoke detectors, Minut’s technology uses advanced algorithms to differentiate between cigarette smoke and other types of smoke, such as from cooking or fireplaces. This precise detection helps property managers maintain their property’s condition and uphold policy compliance.

This update from Minut is part of the ongoing evolution in property management technology, aimed at providing hosts with more control over their rentals.

Minut also recently announced an integration with Avantio, a property management software (PMS), aiming to streamline operations and reduce damage costs in property rentals. This collaboration seeks to provide hosts with a more efficient way to manage their properties.

The integration allows for easier monitoring and control of rental properties by combining Minut’s home monitoring solution with Avantio’s management tools. The goal is to lower operational costs and reduce potential damage, thereby enhancing the profitability of short-term rentals.
