Preventing misuse of your park with innovative technology
Holiday parks across the UK offer peace, tranquillity and memorable staycation experiences to millions of visitors each year. Buying a holiday home is a significant but attractive investment to many people. However, often they can purchase a caravan or holiday lodge without fully understanding the restrictions on how they can use it.
All holiday homeowners in the UK, whether it is a caravan or a lodge, need to have a main registered residence. They should only be using their holiday home within the terms of their park’s agreement and license. This could mean that their holiday home is only actually available for 10 months of the year due to the closed period of the park their home is situated on. So, how, as a park manager, can you be sure that all holiday homes on your park are being used correctly? Particularly during the peak holiday season when monitoring longer-term holiday stays can be a unnecessary distraction.

By logging into the online portal, it’s easy to see which units have detected motion over the last 24hrs so you can confidently track the activity in the homes on your park.
