VISIBILITY

TrustHab gives property managers the most relevant information about the status of their thermostats and energy consumption, in a user-friendly dashboard. They will be able to easily access data such as:

  • Temperature
  • Mode (heat/cool)
  • Humidity
  • Set new temperature

Along with this, TrustHab provides graphical and analytics reports to monitor these and other variables so that property managers can keep track of changes over time. These can be applied to a single unit, building, or whole property.

These tools can help you:

  • Spot inefficient units, buildings, or properties
  • Identify vacant or unattended units
  • Learn about risks that could lead to property damage

Visibility is the first step toward unlocking the potential of your property.

CONTROL

With TrustHab, property managers benefit from centralized thermostat control on their property, enabling them to directly change settings on any (or all) thermostats with just a click in the web interface. You can take control by:

  • Adjusting temperature settings on any device or across a building or property
  • Setting the mode to heat or cool
  • Creating temperature settings limits

The control that TrustHab offers allows property managers to:

  • Ensure vacant units are set at an efficient temperature
  • Check that the correct mode is in use for the given climate
  • Prevent abuse that could lead to equipment damage
  • Reset thermostats during periods of high vacancy like Spring Break

Take control of your property’s thermostats with TrustHab.

SAVINGS

NOI is the magic word in property management, and one of the best ways to increase it is through savings. By both, reducing energy consumption and decreasing man-hour requirements, TrustHab helps you run a more efficient property. TrustHab can increase every-day efficiency by:

  • Keeping temperature settings within reasonable boundaries
  • Ensuring that vacant units are at an efficient setting
  • Alerting staff to HVAC maintenance issues without the need for residents to report them
  • Providing temperature setting history to show to residents, if necessary
  • Reducing the need for staff to physically check units for functioning

TrustHab can also create savings in situations such as:

  • Ensuring that HVAC systems are functioning correctly during extreme weather events (heat waves, freezes) for safety thus preventing property damage
  • Preventing maintenance personnel from abusing the thermostat in vacant apartments
  • Spotting potentials for property damage from extended periods of high heat or humidity

When property managers have the right tools at their disposal, savings become second nature with TrustHab.

Appeal

Residents want to live somewhere that they feel connects with their values and offers convenience. Millennial and Gen Z residents, care about their impact on the world, but also expect everything to work seamlessly through technology.

Every KWh TrustHab saves, is another bit of goodwill from your residents. Being green is not only good for the environment, but smart business. Your leasing agents will have another arrow in their quiver when talking to prospective residents.

MORE FEATURES

ALERTS

Alerts are generated when one of the configured “Metrics” have crossed a threshold that indicates an issue. These alerts are color coded with red being the most urgent and blue the least urgent.

TYPES OF ALERTS

TOTAL OFFLINE:

Every time a device goes offline, an alert is triggered/sent.

PROFILE VIOLATIONS DETECTED:

Every time an error is detected, an alert is triggered/sent.

AVERAGE BATTERY LEVEL:

Every time Battery Level drops below 25%, an alert is triggered/sent

AVERAGE SIGNAL STRENGHT:

Every time Signal Strength drops below 20, an alert is triggered/sent.

LOGINS REJECTED:

Every time an error is detected, an alert is triggered/sent.

PLACES

Users can manage their ”Zones” (apartments, buildings) in the “Places” module, including thermostat settings (temperature and humidity thresholds)s

DEVICES

Device registration and configuration is done in the “Devices” module.

Although we only offer thermostats at the moment, the new design is already built to support multiple device types, including vendor-specific properties.

ADMIN-GROUPS

Under the Groups section in the Administration module, you can define Groups to allow specific permissions within the Manager Portal.

Once a Group is created, you can assign certain Users to a Group and apply that Group’s allowed permissions to the associated User(s).

ACTION MENUS-MULTIPLE OBJECTS

This tool shows the list-level “action menus” for Devices. Similar menus exist for each of the main views.

List-level actions affect the list of objects such as, adding new objects, deleting multiple objects, or performing other types of actions that can be performed upon multiple objects simultaneously.
