In addition to detecting for a spike in traffic, which may indicate that a party might be underway, you can also use this technology to:
- Help verify that the number of expected guests was not grossly understated (12 guests instead of 2). Remember - some guests might have 2 phones or carry a tablet, so the number of devices does not directly match to the number of guests.
- Help verify that the check-in or check-out time was not grossly outside of policy (unexpected mobile device traffic showing up 1-2 day(s) before or after check-in/out). But don't panic if you see your cleaners showing up in your count!
- Help indicate whether the power or internet may be off in the home. In case you see an offline status on your Party Squasher app, this means the sensor might be unplugged, but it might also indicate a power or internet issue (fun fact, one of our users saved his freezer content thanks to Party Squasher!).
- Or... if you want to be creative you could compete with your friends to see who can pull off the biggest party ;-)
