Rently, a leading provider of self-touring and smart home technology solutions has announced a secure, multifunctional property technology platform for student housing. This platform is designed to enhance resident comfort and convenience, streamline unit turnovers, and ensure maximum security of residences and common areas.
Smart home technology is becoming a standard amenity in student housing across the nation. Tech-savvy students appreciate the convenience of smart locks for easy unit access and the control of utility usage through smart thermostats. These devices also benefit student housing operators by optimizing property protection and reducing building energy costs. Smart locks can reduce security threats by 60%, smart thermostats can lower annual utility bills by up to 30%, and smart water leak sensors can reduce damage expenses by thousands of dollars per instance.
Rently’s student housing solution is particularly beneficial to operators during resident unit turnovers. Smart locks eliminate the need for rekeying at every turn, and mobile app-based software can activate or revoke building and unit access with a simple click. From Rently’s Smart Home dashboard, operators can customize property access schedules, control access permissions, monitor access logs, and create durational entry codes for deliveries and maintenance visits.
Rently CEO, Merrick Lackner, expressed excitement about applying the company’s years of expertise in the multifamily housing industry to student housing. He emphasized the ease of managing a smart home property with one login for one platform, allowing operators to remotely control all property access points and oversee every aspect of property management.
The student housing solution from Rently integrates smoothly with leading property management software like Yardi, RealPage, and Entrata. Student housing operators can also expedite the deployment of Rently’s solution using automated set-up tools, a network of technicians, and world-class customer support.
Rently continues to offer best-in-class proptech solutions for the rental housing industry, combining top-tier hardware with innovative software to optimize leasing efficiency and expand revenue opportunities.
