Many residents in Southern Maine rent their homes out at least a small portion of the year:
One thing they all have in common is the challenge of keeping track of propane use and avoiding runouts. And, when they learn about our convenient wireless tank monitoring, they can’t wait to sign up! Let’s get you familiar with this convenient service:
Odata wireless tank monitors attach right to your propane tank and track the level of propane inside the tank in real-time. From there, it transmits those levels, and your usage patterns, via wireless cellular technology to our systems, as well as your smartphone or mobile device.
When the tank gauge reaches a pre-set level, the monitor alerts us—and you—directly via the wireless mobile app. If you’re an automatic delivery customer, this means you don’t have to do a thing! We’re notified instantly and schedule your next delivery. But you can use it even if you’re a will-call customer, too! When you get the alert, just let us know you’re ready for a delivery.
Automatic delivery is great and convenient for the average homeowner, with regular usage patterns. When your propane use is consistent, we can use our algorithms to accurately predict when you will next need a delivery.
But when you have different people, with different habits, using propane at different rates, our algorithms won’t work quite as well. Your guests one week might take lots of long hot showers, run their towels through the dryer every day, and stay up late in front of the propane hearth every night. The tenants the next week might barely use any propane at all. That makes it hard to predict tank levels to provide reliable automatic deliveries.
It also means physically checking the tank gauge can be unreliable too. You could check levels when one set of renters’ check-in, but by the time they leave the tank could be super low—and you’ll have to get a rush delivery scheduled for the next guests.
With the wireless tank monitor, there’s no need to guess! Our Odata monitoring system comes with a convenient app that lets you track multiple tanks with ease.
If you’re a property manager, you’ve got a lot to keep track of. Particularly if you manage short-term or vacation rentals. Turnover days can be a whirlwind that include cleaning, making up rooms, restocking supplies. Whether you have a team of helpers or do it yourself, you’re on a tight schedule. It can be easy to forget to check propane tank levels. But the last thing you want is for guests to experience a runout!
When you sign up for our tank monitoring service, you get peace of mind because you never have to worry about the hassle for your guests, potential poor reviews, not to mention the costs of running out of propane. Installation is quick and easy—we can have you set up and ready to go in a matter of minutes!
