Smart Home Technology is More Than Hardware
When most people think about “smart home technology,” they immediately envision smart thermostats and lighting, maybe even door locks, doorbells, and motion sensors. They think hardware. But it is the software side of smart home tech that has the biggest impact on the bottom line.
The Wired Side of Connected Communities
Installing managed Wi-Fi in a multifamily community, whether in a new build or retrofit value-add project, requires strategic planning. Hardware and infrastructure setups must be designed and mapped to ensure complete property coverage and deliver maximum benefit to on-site teams and residents. But the advantages are worth the undertaking. Seamless connectivity throughout the community, fully supported proptech and smart home solutions, and the speed and bandwidth to accommodate remote professionals create an unparalleled modern living environment.

As multifamily operators began to expand the technology footprints at their communities, an initial concern in the industry was that on-site teams would lose their personal connection with residents. Because proptech often absorbs the routine tasks that once necessitated person-to-person interactions and eliminates many of the brief touchpoints that associates once had with residents, the fear was that relationships between residents and associates would suffer. That's certainly reasonable, considering many of the proptech solutions deployed during recent years — particularly products designed during the pandemic — were strategically developed to reduce in-person contact.
