Make the Urban System part of your property management process

For Rental & Property Managers

 

Managing rental properties as a rental or management agent has several challenging operational aspects, and utility management at property level is seen as one of the fundamental management processes that every agent needs to perform or manage monthly for or on behalf of a client.

 

This management process is also one of the most common processes that agents have problems with seeing that it is time-consuming and takes valuable resources, specifically if there are utility account issues.

 

The Urban property utility solution works well for all letting and management agents as it integrates into all existing business processes and models, saving time and effort spend on utility account-related matters, thus allowing for flexibility and process automation to ensure an overall better utility management strategy.

 

Don’t get left behind and partner with Urban Utilities to ensure that you have the upper hand when it comes to utility management for your property portfolio.

HOW WOULD MY METER READINGS BE TAKEN?

HOW DOES IT INTEGRATE WITH MY COUNCIL?

Urban Utilities developed a stable integrated process that integrates with each council, this allows for all the data as collected from the property on either (Water or Electricity) to be provided to the specific council. This all happens on a monthly basis and gets processed directly from the main Urban platform via a automated process.

WHAT NEEDS TO BE INSTALLED TO ALLOW FOR THE AUTOMATED READINGS?
To capture the actual consumption readings live from your property Urban Utilities would need to install a small device on either the (Water or Electrical) architecture that would allow for the actual meter data to be processed into the Urban network infrastructure.

The Urban IoT network is cloud based thus allowing for the installations to be done seamlessly and without any major changes on the property.
90% of the installation is a plug & Play and can be done by any property owner. The other 10% only comes into effect if changes on the property architecture is needed and this would need to be done by either a qualified “electrician or plumber”.

HOW WOULD MY GEYSER BE MAMANGED?

The geyser management units are designed for control over the water management process that takes place on the geyser itself.

In the case of a geyser burst or leak the number one issue that comes into play would be the possibility of water damage caused by the leak or a burst geyser. The geyser units act as a water detection device that shuts off the water in the event that a burst or leak in the geyser is detected.

The Urban management system then controls that actions around the possible geyser burst and leak by processing early warning messages to the property owner of the event via (sms, email and push notifications) through the urban portal.

The Geyser unit also allows for integration to your insurance provider by allowing the data to be processed to them in the event of a geyser burst or leak that will assist with immediate repairs and claims in the process.

HOW DOES IT INTEGRATE WITH MY INSURANCE PROVIDER?

We have an integration process that takes place with the insurance providers in South Africa that allow for each geyser management device installed to be processed and linked on the policy of each client in accordance with the policy process in place.

This will allow for the data process to take place between the geyser management device and the insurance provider.

WHAT NEEDS TO BE INSTALLED TO ALLOW FOR MY GEYSER TO BE MANAGED?

To manage a geyser live from your property Urban Utilities would need to install a small device on the geyser architecture that would allow for the actual geyser to be managed and the data to be processed into the Urban network infrastructure.
