Property Refresh - Get smart with smart technology! 2020 is already off and running and multifamily construction wave is not slowing down. More than 381,000 multifamily homes broke ground across the country in 2019 and that figure is expected to swell to 400,000 units/per year in 2020. How do existing communities refresh their look and feel to compete with new builds? It starts with being smart. And by smart, we mean smart technology. The largest current share of renters are currently Millennials, the generation known for being both technologically savvy and passionate about having a custom experience. Smart technology checks both boxes allowing customization of apartment climate, lighting, and security from a resident’s smartphone. 1. Smart Door Locks – Residents unlock units using their smartphone. Clean design of hardware upgrades apartment entry. 2. Doorbell/Security Camera – Allows enhanced visual of visitors and notification on resident's smartphone. 3. Smart Thermostats – Residents control unit climate and schedules to suit their needs. 4. Smart Lightswitch – Enables lighting in unit on-demand or schedule, so residents feel safe when they walk into their unit. 5. Smart Outlets - Provides multiple recurring timers to automate humidifiers, appliances or lamps and keep energy costs low. Wondering how to integrate these products into your multifamily property?
