With a constantly increasing tourism, holiday rental properties are getting more and more popular. The variety of people are choosing rental rooms and apartments over the traditional hotel stay. With the growing demand for holiday rental property, there are more and more websites and opportunities for tourist to stay in private homes/apartments/villas. However, there are also raising concerns over safety and security. Due to the lack of the hotel-alike securities, such as valid verification and passport control, many homeowners are facing troubles during guests’ stay and after their departure.
Our idea is to eliminate these issues and create a platform that will allow to have more control. Not only we are planning to introduce a hustle free check in and check out, but also we want to integrate an airport-like passport security. In this way, our app will have a passport recognition that validates people’s passport or ID card and the camera will do a facial recognition. Once it is a match, the person will get access to the property and the landlord will be notified about the arrival. All future communication, including payments, security deposits etc., will be handled within the platform. However, if the facial recognition fails, the door will remain locked and the message will be sent to the person responsible for the booking and help will be on the way, either it is a landlord himself or a responsible third party.
In this way, there will be a guarantee for both sides that the stay will be safe and secure and any issues will be undoubtedly solved. It also will give peace for those who live far and want to be relaxed about renting out their homes, and have a complete reassurance that everything will go smoothly.
