An August Smart Lock for every Pillow home

While not quite a horror story, here’s a horrible story: In the summer of 2014, I did a West Coast road trip and decided to stay in an Airbnb vacation rental in Seattle. We arrived in the early evening after driving all day from a campsite near Mount St. Helens and sitting in traffic that can only resemble the 101 and 405 freeway merge in Los Angeles. So there we were dying for showers, out of food, and full of road rage. Our host had been great and sent us all the information needed to access his property ahead of time, so we wasted no time unloading the car. The code to enter, however, wasn’t working and the homeowner was staying elsewhere. We’re pretty easy going, but this hiccup unfortunately set the tone for the entire evening and after a few grueling hours, by the time the host arrived to let us in, we were horribly fed up and jaded.

Stories like this are why Pillow is pleased to announce our partnership with August – a company that offers vacation rental software and smarter home access products. Pillow strives to ensure an enjoyable check-in for guests and hassle free hosting for owners, and as a result, we’re revamping property entry and access systems with August Smart Locks. CEO and Co-founder, Sean Conway states,

“August Locks will provide our owners and hosts with more consistent, secure and transparent property accessibility across all of our properties.” 

As a tech-driven hospitality company, Pillow makes managing vacation rental properties and sharing one’s home with travelers as easy and efficient as possible, all while maintaining high expectations and levels of consistency. We believe advanced software is key to proper vacation rental management, and August’s technology will help us take our own technology even further.

 Historically, we’ve set ourselves apart from other services by remaining at the forefront of innovation. In addition to being the only hospitality management company to offer smart lock technology for our properties, we offer our own set of technological ingenuities; including a proprietary algorithm, which optimizes pricing based on over 85 influencing factors including seasonality, location, external events, and internal data which forecasts occupancy.

 August’s mission to make customer’s lives more simple and secure compliments Pillow’s goals of providing vacation rental management services to homeowners so they can rent hassle free and Rest Easy. Pillow will now create easier access for vacation rental guests, removing frustrations of lock-outs and inaccessibility, and will do so in a safer more secure way. Through August Access, homeowners can monitor and manage entry into their homes, while allowing partners, like Pillow, secure home access.

Pillow continually reinvents vacation rental management by providing the most comprehensive services and guaranteeing a rental revenue increase for only 15% commission.
