Neighbors Being Noisy At 3 A.M.? This Startup Wants To Help
NoiseAware is tracking nuisance noise in apartment buildings across the country–and giving landlords the tools to respond. “We called it Mini Coachella,” recounts Dave Krauss, who once managed many short-term rental units. One weekend, a tenant checked into one of his apartments. Then they threw a raucous, weekend-long party complete with live music. “My neighbors weren’t invited, but they had tickets, in a way.” It wasn’t until two days later that Krauss heard about it–from a lawyer. Like many property managers, Krauss didn’t live on site, so he had no clue. But that didn’t mean he wanted to be a bad neighbor.
