“Weather impacts our lives and our homes in so many ways,” says vipHomeLink Founder + CEO Alfred Bentley.
What happens outside your home determines whether you take an umbrella on your way out the door or switch that outdoor run to a treadmill workout.
But weather is essential to the inside of your home as well. If the Polar Vortex is coming back, you might want to leave your cold water dripping (to keep the pipes from freezing). If extreme heat is on the way, you might need to get your HVAC serviced. High wind blowing into town? Time to bring in the outdoor furniture.
That’s why here at vipHomeLink, we made sure that our home management app has real-time weather notifications and conditions on your dashboard, so you can be prepared for what the outside world has instore for you and your home.
Weather at home
The vipHomeLink app helps you to organize, maintain, and improve your home, and it’s our mission to revolutionize the homeownership experience. We seek to engage, enable, and empower homeowners – to make their homes safer, smarter, and more valuable, all while saving you time and money.
Some of our newest features – including weather information and notifications – can help prepare your home for extreme weather events.
“Homeownership is simpler and safer when you are prepared,” says Alfred, “and that is what our weather notifications do.”
This begins in the Home Profile. From the moment you open your home’s profile, you’ll see the weather conditions, humidity, wind speed, precipitation, and any weather alerts you should address.
(Currently at our Digital Content Manager’s home, it’s 65 degrees with scattered clouds, 49% humidity, wind speed at 8.99 mph, and precipitation at zero. Alerts are thankfully zero as well.)
Whether you’re at work or relaxing on the beach, you’ll know what’s happening at home at all times simply by logging into the vipHomeLink app.
Weather alerts on the app
We’re always looking for ways to simplify homeownership, and that’s essential when it comes to local weather updates. Knowing what’s coming can help you prepare your home and avoid disaster.
“Anyone can look at a forecast,” says Alfred. “Our vipHomeLink members know what to do before the first freeze of the winter or heat wave in summer. They know how to prepare for that upcoming wind event or the first major snowfall of the season.”
The vipHomeLink app now sends notifications as well as preparation tips to ready your home, for the following events:
- The first freeze of the year with tips to keep your pipes from freezing and your toes (and home) from getting cold.
- A deep freeze or under 10 degrees to help you prepare your heating system.
- High wind advisory with ideas to protect your home and help you through a power outage.
- Snow totals of over six inches with tips to save your driveway, roof, and back.
- Heavy rain spells with information about preventing water damage and home flooding.
No matter what Mother Nature sends your way, you’ll be prepared with vipHomeLink on your phone, tablet, or computer!
