Guest Connect and PMS Integrations are here
We’re launching the three features you most requested: Guest Connect, an automated monitoring solution that contacts the guest on your behalf, and integrations with property management systems and Zapier.
At Minut, we’re constantly working on making property management easier - that’s why we are excited to launch the three features you most requested: Guest Connect, an automated monitoring solution that contacts the guest on your behalf whenever the noise gets too loud, and integrations with property management systems and Zapier. Designed with hosts and professional property managers’ needs in mind, they will be introduced as part of our new third subscription plan, Minut Pro.
Created for busy hosts who would rather dedicate their time to growing their business than chasing troublesome guests, Guest Connect makes noise monitoring simple and unburdensome, only requiring your involvement as the absolute last resort.
You can now make your Minut flash and sound and/or send a text message to the guest when the noise levels have exceeded the threshold for the time you have specified in the app (we recommend 5-15min intervals). This way, your guests will be notified that they need to keep the noise down swiftly, allowing for quick reaction on your part even if it’s the middle of the night or a very busy day. And since most guests quiet down after they get a warning, Guest Connect will prevent property damage and resolve most noise complaints before you need to step in - allowing for a largely hands-off monitoring experience.
You will, of course, still receive a notification whenever we contact the guest, so you can always take the matter in your own hands, but you will no longer need to be constantly available, and the feature can be set up in minutes. All you need to do in advance is adjust your thresholds and add the guest’s details (read more about the setup here). Once your guest arrives, you can relax and enjoy true peace of mind knowing your property is being monitored for you.
With this new feature release, you will also be able to make your day-to-day operations easier by integrating Minut with your property management system. That means you’ll get a more complete insight into your rentals, collecting the sensor and booking data in one place, and you won’t have to worry about populating the same information over and over again. In other words, you will be spending less time and resources on monitoring your property, and more on growing your business.
We’re kicking this feature off with Guesty as our first PMS partner, but there are more integrations to come in the near future, so that every property manager can enjoy a more seamless Minut experience. And if you require a more custom solution, you will also be able to benefit from our Zapier integration or request API access as part of the new plan.
The Three Tiers
As with all Minut’s services, the new Minut Pro plan originated with our commitment to better serve our community. You might already be familiar with our Starter plan (previously known as Basic), which is completely free, and works perfectly for homeowners with just one property; and the Standard plan (formerly Pro), which allows for the monitoring of multiple homes for just $7.99/home monthly. If you’re currently enjoying one of those two plans (and it meets your needs), nothing at all will change for you - we will continue to support you and make your Minut sensors smarter.
However, while many of you are happy with our existing plans, we realized that we had to do better by those of you who are short term rental pros. We hope that the new Pro plan, priced at $14.99/home, will empower property managers to allocate less time to monitoring the graphs and alerting the guests, and more to what really matters.
We’re confident that the three new features - Guest Connect, PMS and Zapier integrations - will already make a significant impact on your everyday work as a host, but this is also just the start. As we keep on growing and learning from you, we count on your support to help us make Minut work better for you.
We remain dedicated to providing all homeowners and property managers with the best experience possible, no matter how big or small their business is. That’s why you can rest assured that we will always offer the free starter plan for those just beginning their journey with Minut, and that we will never sell your data nor introduce ads, because we will always give our community - your privacy and needs - top priority. Putting our community first also means listening to you and seeking out your feedback - we’d love to hear your thoughts on the current experience and suggestions for improvement at firstname.lastname@example.org.
