SafeMart Offers Prevention to Millions of Airbnb Customers

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Aug 4, 2011) - SafeMart® today announced a home security system designed to address issues that surfaced during Airbnb's #ransackgate. The announcement comes as many Airbnb customers and prospective customers evaluate how they will continue to rent their homes using Airbnb in the wake of #ransackgate. Airbnb addressed their own liability as a result of #ransackgate announcing an insurance package to cover customer's homes up to $50,000. Efforts to prevent vandalism however are still in the hands of the customer.

SafeMart's LiveWatch™ interactive alarm monitoring and Plug & Protect™ delivery are two components included in the home security system designed for Airbnb "that will provide peace of mind to homeowners," said Joseph Thomas, SafeMart's Director of Technology. "By creating a system that can be controlled remotely and activated in less than 30 minutes, we've engineered a home security system that will allow more people to use Airbnb's service without worrying about vandalism or theft."

SafeMart introduces important features to Airbnb customers including remote monitoring of rooms containing valuables and environmental monitoring, protecting against fire, smoke, flood, freeze and carbon monoxide.
