We live in a world where thanks to IoT (Internet of things) technology we are able to control our apartment from the distance at any time (24/7), respecting the privacy of the guests.
The surveillance policies of some accommodation search sites, such as Airbnb, requires that it must be communicated the presence of any surveillance device in the Property nor Home Rules.
Here’s the full text of Airbnb’s rules about security cameras and other recording devices in listings:
Is NoiseAlarm a surveillance device?
First of all, we must say that NoiseAlarm devices only measure the sound pressure, does not record any audio, video nor conversations, and offers a 100% of privacy to the guests.
NoiseAlarm is an investment and a benefit for property owners by keeping up the good coexistence with neighbors.
Therefore, it is a surveillance device that measures the sound levels and allows the monitoring of the sound at the apartment.
That is why we recommend you to include in the publication of your apartments or on your website, a text that refers to Roomonitor devices, to avoid penalties and also as an Airbnb requirement.
The following are some good examples:
“This property uses an IOT device that helps us to control the noise in the apartment avoiding conflicts with neighbors or other tenants.
