Starting July 28, San Bernardino County is recommending the use of outdoor noise-monitoring sensors in all vacation rental properties, to reduce vacation-rental noise, nuisances and complaints. Vacation-rental permit applicants can get 50% off privacy-safe noise monitoring, and an additional $150 off their vacation-rental permit application fee, with NoiseAware. This partnership empowers vacation rental hosts and managers in popular San Bernardino County travel destinations including Joshua Tree, Big Bear, Lake Arrowhead, Wrightwood and Running Springs to operate responsibly, while protecting vacation-rental permit rights. Here’s how it works:
Protect Your Property
- Purchase an annual NoiseAware noise monitoring subscription for each property. Includes 1 free indoor sensor per subscription.
- Purchase 1 additional outdoor sensor for each property to be eligible for $150 San Bernardino County fee credit [outdoor sensors must have an indoor sensor + subscription to activate].
Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely! NoiseAware was built for property portfolios of all sizes. Our dashboard allows you to view an infinite number of properties at once, you to check in on properties while on the go with the NoiseAware mobile app.
If the noise level at a property exceeds your customized programmed levels, you will receive an alert and a link to the property’s Noise Risk Score graph. The graph takes noise and turns it into data so you can evaluate the property’s risk in real-time. You can then decide to message or call your guests. 80% of the time, guests quiet down within 15 minutes of being contacted!
There’s more to sound than just decibels! Advanced technology allows us to identify the this-could-be-a-problem-sounds. Your Noise Risk Score (NRS), built from our proprietary algorithm, goes beyond the sporadic and instantaneous measurement of a decibel, to bring you context and deeper insight. While remaining privacy safe, we monitor how loud it is at your property and for how long so you can act quickly and decisively to resolve things. Bottom line, you can rest easy knowing your NoiseAware sensor and software solution is the most sensitive available.

Every property is different. We recommend having a sensor in each of your property’s Activity Zones – places people tend to congregate. For condos, we typically recommend 1 Indoor Sensor. For homes, we typically recommend 1 Indoor Sensor and 1 Outdoor Sensor. For larger homes and estates, we typically recommend 2+ Indoor Sensors and 2+ Outdoor sensors.
