Entrata enters smart home market by launching new property management software
Property management software company Entrata has announced its entry into the smart home market by introducing the SmartProperty apartment automation service.

As part of the two-year-old software product Entrata Core, SmartProperty’s new features, which combine property management and smart devices at home, are currently under testing. This solution connects smart home gadgets, including thermostats, lightings, locks and water sensors from multiple apartment units, to a central hub.

Entrata SmartProperty will allow users to remotely control connected devices at home and present key data gathered from the devices. This enables users to manage the health of the property, such as power consumption and device repair problems.

Entrada currently serves more than 3.5 million apartment units in 20,000 residential communities in the United States. The software performs tasks relating to accounting, purchasing facilities and leasing data.

According to Entrata, it can take additional $10-$65 per unit to complete smart home hardware installation. Any properties that already make use of Entrada’s software can add the new features to link the smart home gadgets.

Just recently, smart home enabler Vivint also introduced a rental property management service called Smart Properties.

The Vivint service allows property managers to design their own smart home systems and Vivint will do the installation. Property managers can control smart gadgets remotely and receive smart home data analysis on their dashboard. Keyless entry to unoccupied units may be provided, and once a unit is rented, the resident will take over the control.

Vivint makes its own smart home devices, including smart locks and security cameras, and also supports many third-party gadgets, including the new released Alexa-enabled touchscreen device Echo Show.
