Our Mission

We’re on a Mission:

We prevent noise pollution with innovative technology and remarkable customer service.

NoiseAware was built as the result of one party incident. Our Co-Founder, David Krauss, rented out his short term rental on Airbnb to a guest who was coming to stay at his place for a "quiet weekend". That quiet weekend never happened and after their "mini Coachella rager" in his condo, he was left to clean up the mess - a cease and desist letter from his building and a lot of angry neighbors. David was forced to sell his property and lost over $30,000.

That's when he met Andrew Schulz, a brilliant electrical engineer with a unique set of skills. The two began building what is now "The Smoke Detector for Noise". A smart sensor equipped with noise monitoring technology to save short-term rental owners and managers from the same nightmare David endured. Today we're a team of fun, bright and somewhat quiet people who believe quiet hours should always be quiet. We're your noise monitoring experts!

How it all Started

Dave was searching for a cofounder to help him realize his vision when he fatefully saw Andrew give a presentation at a local networking event. After some intense brainstorms and prototype builds, they set off to Vegas to attend their first Vacation Rental Conference. After several potential customers exclaimed how valuable a noise monitoring product could be (“you make it and I’ll buy it!”), Dave and Andrew decided to push onward.

The first noise issue ever caught on a NoiseAware sensor happened on New Years Eve 2015 in a property managed by our first customer. That success motivated additional manufacturing, and in Spring 2016 NoiseAware began selling sensors to all the managers and homeowners who needed privacy-safe noise monitoring at their properties.

Today, NoiseAware is still following in the founders' footsteps: delivering a valuable product, with excellent service, and helping our customers prevent troublesome noise issues like the ones Dave faced in his own business.
