Shipshape: The Check Engine Light for Your Home

Just as your car alerts you when something’s wrong in the engine, Shipshape alerts you when something’s wrong in your home.

July 6, 2021

When something goes wrong in your car, you usually know pretty quickly. That’s because more often than not, you’re alerted to the problem by an indicator light. Whether the issue is related to your oil level, the temperature of your engine, or the fact that it’s time for scheduled maintenance, your car lets you know that something is off so that you can address it and prevent a breakdown before it happens. 

So…why don’t houses work this way?

Think about the way most people find out that something around their house needs to be repaired: It breaks. There’s not usually any advance warning that something major is about to go out—like your HVAC system, for example. You know that your system is down because you notice that you’re feeling warmer or colder than you should be, and even though you’re doing all the right things with the thermostat, your system just isn’t functioning properly. 

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a check engine light for your home the way there’s one for your car?

Shipshape: Industrial IoT for Your Home

Allow us to make one thing clear right off the bat. Shipshape is not a “smart home” system—it does not automate your thermostat or turn your lights off when you tap something on your phone. 

Instead, Shipshape makes your home run like a smart factory. When something starts to break down, you get an alert that there’s a problem. You don’t have to wait until the air conditioning is blowing hot in the middle of August before you realize something is wrong; you know that the air conditioning will be blowing hot soon because something inside your HVAC is wearing out. 

Because you have this advanced knowledge, you get the repair made before the breakdown happens, and voila: No hot, sweaty afternoon waiting for a contractor who may or may not be able to fix the problem. 

We partner with first-class service providers to connect you with the very best maintenance solutions, which means that once you know there’s a problem, you can rest assured that the maintenance provider we send to you will get the job done right.
