Smart Home Tech Needs Open Technology Ecosystems

Posted by: Entrata | Category: Newsletters,Technology

Smart home ecosystemNew technologies bring new challenges, especially when it comes to brand new categories of hardware.

Smart home technology is no exception.

Smart thermostats, smart smoke detectors, smart locks, leak detection systems and many others often come with their own software that gives residents the ability to control the devices from their smartphones. But being required to log in to several disparate apps and web portals to control different smart devices is not only inefficient for the resident, it is an inefficiency that apartment owner/operators managing hundreds of homes can’t afford.

“I believe in an open and scalable ecosystem,” said Tommy Deserti, head of RNC and OEM for Nest. “Regardless of the brands you love, if you want longevity, an open ecosystem always wins. When you think about open and scalable, there are going to be software updates. If you’re buying into a software heavy innovation you’re going to be good.” continue

Updated July 25, 2018

We’re excited to announce that since launching our Plant a Tree campaign back in February, over 9,400 residents living at ResidentUtility properties have opted out of paper invoices! These efforts have resulted in 9,400 trees being planted around the world due to our partnership with One Tree Planted. While we’re quickly approaching our goal of planting 10,000 trees, we’d love to keep the momentum going throughout the entire year!  

For more information on the Plant a Tree campaign, including how to get your properties involved, read the below article. For access to sample posts to share on your property’s social media page, email us at ResidentUtility@entrata.com.
