In our connected world, even our homes are becoming smarter. The term is ‘smart technology’ and it is changing the way that apartment communities are being managed. Here are the answers to common questions regarding this fresh new concept.
- Q: What is a smart apartment / smart home?
Smart apartments and homes use internet-connected devices to monitor and manage the home remotely, using a simple phone application. This includes everything from appliances and utilities to temperature and lighting controls. Think of it this way: just as your mobile phone has iOS and Android that connect us to just about all of our daily tasks, they now also connect us to our most important asset—our homes!
Smart apartments are very versatile and offer something for every tenant. In fact, they can be equipped with EACH AND EVERY ONE of the following smart devices (Note: all these devices allow for 24/7 monitoring and response): Smoke detector alerts, smart lighting control, thermostat automation, water leak detectors, keyless entry/smart locks, entry sensors (e.g., windows and doors), motion sensors and more. Additionally, smart apartment devices can all be automated onto one simple, streamlined platform.
