From access management, to self-touring, energy saving, and improved security, property managers are leveraging smart building technology to create stronger relationships with tenants, while at the same time, enjoying massive efficiency gains.

However, the smart building technology market is complex. A complete smart automation system incorporates several technologies, including hardware, software, and internet connectivity.  So how do you know what smart devices to invest in and ensure that your software solution is future-proofed?

Investing in Smart Building Technology

In this episode of Solving for Multifamily, Robert Gaulden discusses the adoption of smart building technology, smart devices and the benefits of using the Yonomi IoT Platform with his guest, Kent Dickson from Yonomi. Kent shares a virtual buyers guide for investing in smart buildings and smart devices.

Dickson is the founder and now General Manager of Yonomi and VP of Platforms and Solutions for Allegion. Yonomi's IoT Platform enables property management software developers to rapidly deploy and integrate smart devices into their property management applications without locking them into any device type or brand.

For example if you have a building with legacy devices, Yonomi extracts that layer. So, the developer can write code for a common action such as opening a lock, but only has to do this once. The command will work across any brand of lock.

This ensures software applications are flexible and can evolve with the market.
