Five Minute Friday #37 - Should My Rental Be a Smart Home?

Bob Preston - Friday, August 28, 2020

We are starting to see them everywhere, “smart devices" installed for home automation. These devices might include thermostats, doorbells, home security cameras, lighting, appliance monitoring and more. Homes are becoming more efficient, secure and convenient. So is it something that makes sense for your rental homes as property manager or landlord?  

On this Five Minute Friday, Bob discusses the factors that should be considered, including benefits and drawbacks, before installing smart devices in your home. Some tenants, for example, may love the idea of living in a smart home. Others may find it too “big brother” like if they think the landlord is eavesdropping or monitoring their lifestyle. Which is right for your rental home or property management company?  It is a great topic to get on the table, so here we go, have a listen.

Here also is the link to a great episode about home automation, featuring Sean Miller of Point Central, definitely worth listening to this episode too:  Episode 27: Gaining Efficiencies Through Property Automation, Featuring Sean Miller of PointCentral

TGIF, keep the faith, and we will catch you next Friday!
