Local Santa Barbara resident Matt Mason aims to offer peace of mind to homeowners, property managers and others through FreePropertyAlert.com, an alert system that notifies subscribers of emergency calls that are made to certain addresses.
Mason, who has been a software engineer for 25 years, said his business taps into the computer dispatch center for databases across the country, grabs that alert information, processes it and then sends information to customers.
The service, which is free for the first six months, was launched in large part through Santa Barbara’s Noospheric technology accelerator led by Jacques Habra.
The post-free period cost is $4.95 per month, and FreePropertyAlert also offers the option of purchasing property histories for $9.99.
“About the price of a cup of coffee for some peace of mind,” Mason said. “You can’t know what’s happening at your property 24 hours a day. It’s really a good thing for the community.”
