Noise Monitoring Solutions from New Partners Vrbo and NoiseAware

Exclusive offering furthers commitment to responsible rental practices.

AUSTIN, Texas – October 1, 2020 – Vrbo® has partnered with NoiseAware, the leader in modern noise monitoring, to provide vacation home owners and property managers with access to exclusive pricing and services for NoiseAware noise monitoring solutions. NoiseAware is offering Vrbo homeowners discounts of up to 50 percent, and property managers with multiple properties 60 days free with overnight monitoring and guest messaging services at no extra cost.

NoiseAware provides a privacy-safe way to wirelessly monitor decibel levels inside vacation rentals and notify homeowners and property managers when noise levels reach or exceed customizable thresholds. Homeowners and property managers are typically able to resolve 95 percent of noise issues remotely, and 75 percent of noise issues within 15 minutes. This often helps to prevent and eliminate unruly guests, noise fines, neighborhood complaints, and costly damage to the property.

“Countless families have trusted their family vacation with Vrbo, and our solutions help homeowners and property managers continue to host amazing family vacations while also enforcing responsible rental practices,” said Andrew Schulz, NoiseAware CEO. “NoiseAware solutions enable early detection and intervention of excessive noise before they become bigger disruptions.”

NoiseAware does not record, stream or transmit audio, and only measures sound levels by constantly taking decibel readings and applying it to a Noise Risk Score. Vrbo homeowners and property managers that use NoiseAware are required to include the information on their property listings.

“Vrbo is dedicated to providing a safe and secure marketplace for travelers, homeowners and property managers,” said Kevin Locraft, Expedia Group vice president of partner success, vacation rental. “Working with NoiseAware as a trusted noise monitoring solution furthers our commitment to helping our homeowners and property managers provide great vacation rental experiences for their guests and their communities.”
