Smart Technology for a superior customer experience

In a recent Parks Associates study, residents consistently provided higher ratings for properties that provided smart home devices versus those that didn’t. Roughly 74% of participants* rated energy savings from the ability to remotely control appliances and being able to monitor their homes as “High Value” and were willing to pay more for it.

While 84% of property managers showed intent to install internet-connected devices within the next 12 months**, the ability to integrate with their management systems, ease of use, and reliability remain key concerns for their decision to invest in smart technology.

Parks Associates identified top vendors in the MDU market, leaning on conversations with MDU owners, operators, and property managers to learn what they are looking for in their partners. This includes features but also leans on additional factors, including integration, reputation, and customer service.
