In-home technology is advancing rapidly, making apartment living easier and apartment management more effective.

“Once considered the exception for multifamily communities, fast-changing smart home technology is becoming the standard for apartment units, thereby making the lives of residents and managers increasingly more efficient.
It is not unusual today for multifamily residents to use smart home applications to adjust lighting and temperature, control access to their units, view their units remotely, file and track maintenance requests and more.
‘You will soon have full control of all aspects of your home under one interface, including lighting, air conditioning, cameras, shades, music and video, radiant floor heat and the ability to turn on your steam shower by tapping an app on your phone,’ said Architect Adam Meshberg, founder and principal of Brooklyn-based Meshberg Group.
And, more and more, residents will use their voices—not just their phones—to access these applications. ‘Voice-operated technology is the future of smart homes and we’re already seeing a taste of this with Amazon’s Alexa,’ Meshberg said.”
