Monitoring Temperature, Humidity, and More in Properties

Landlords and vacation homeowners benefit from monitoring their properties, particularly where the landlord has a responsibility to maintain a level of comfort, health, and safety for their tenants. Monitoring environmental conditions across your properties can allow you to identify any issues before they become serious, saving you from a costly maintenance bill. 

FilesThruTheAir™ data loggers and sensors allow you to remotely monitor multiple properties, 24/7, and can alert you when a potential problem arises. Keep reading to find out more.


Temperature Monitoring

Monitoring temperature in your properties has multiple benefits for both yourself and your tenants. Landlords are required by law to provide heating in every occupied room of a property; when the temperature drops below minus 1°C, any designated bedrooms must be heated to at least 18°C whilst any living rooms should be able to be heated to 21°C. Failure to provide access to adequate heating can be extremely dangerous for tenants, especially in winter months.

By monitoring temperatures in your properties you can ensure that heating systems are functioning and temperatures remain comfortable. It is also increasingly important for homes on the market to have a good energy efficiency rating, therefore monitoring temperature can helps to assess the performance of heating and ventilation systems as well as insulation materials.

FilesThruTheAir’s range of wireless temperature monitors allow you to remotely monitor temperature across multiple locations in multiple properties, 24/7. From complete cloud-based solutions allowing for storage of long-term historical data, to affordable alerting sensors whereby a warning email is sent when temperatures breach your pre-selected range, we have a solution for you.

Humidity Monitoring

Monitoring humidity should be an essential practice for any landlord or homeowner. Landlords and providers of rental accommodation have a responsibility under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) to assess risks and hazards within their rental properties. Damp and mould growth are listed as category one hazards, and if left unresolved, not only could it leave you with a hefty repair bill, but can also cause serious health effects to occupants.

In most cases, damp and mould originates from condensation forming. When temperatures drop the air can no longer hold as much moisture and it will migrate to the coldest parts of the house where it condenses on windows and walls.

By monitoring humidity across your property you can identify potentially hazardous areas that may be experiencing mould growth. From here you can take preventative action before the problem becomes too serious, through increasing ventilation or investing in a dehumidifier.

Leak Detection

Whether it be from poorly installed appliances, old pipes, or weather-related issues, every property is at risk from leaks/flooding. In fact, nearly one in five claims made on buildings and contents insurance is for damage caused by leaks. Most leaks start off relatively small, but if left undiscovered, can quickly become serious, leading to hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds worth of damage to personal items, furniture, and the building itself. Insurers pay out around £1.8 million to customers who have made ‘escape of water’ claims every day.

The Wireless Alert LD Leak Detect system allows users to remotely monitor their properties for signs of leaks/floods. This affordable device can be set up in multiple areas which may be susceptible to flooding (sinks, boiler rooms, washing machines, attics, etc.), and will notify you via email when it detects a potential leak, potentially allowing you to fix the issue before serious damage occurs.

Pipe Monitoring

During cold winter months, it’s not uncommon for air temperatures to dip well below freezing for days, weeks, and even months. Not only is cold weather uncomfortable for many people, but it can also prove problematic to plumbing in properties, especially vacation homes and rental properties which may be left vacant for prolonged periods of time. If the pipes get cold enough, the water can freeze, resulting in burst pipes, flooding, and costly damage to your home.

Our Wireless Alert TP-P is designed to monitor pipe temperatures and alert users via email if temperatures become too cold or too hot. By fitting this battery-powered, wireless sensor to pipes in your properties, you can monitor temperatures throughout the year and identify pipes which may be susceptible to freezing. This will allow you to put in place preventative measures, such as insulation, to prevent any damage occurring during the colder months.
