Technology Roundtable: Multi-Family Housing

Oct. 12, 2022
How PropTech is changing the game for apartments, condos, student living and more (sponsored by dormakaba)

When it comes to the multi-family housing market, old-style security thinking typically based access control design around the idea of fortifying exterior entrances without necessarily depending on electronic access.

Modern access solutions require a more holistic approach that takes security to the next level and includes electronic access control (EAC) products that keep residents safe while offering capabilities like using a phone as a credential, PIN code capabilities at common/amenity doors, and the use of traditional credentials all at the same time.

These technology differentiators are desired by both property owners/managers as well as residents. In addition, security technology must integrate with the many property management technologies available in the marketplace. 

For this exclusive technology roundtable sponsored by dormakaba, multi-family housing is segmented into six distinct environments: market-rate apartments, privatized student housing, senior living, military housing, subsidized housing, and condominiums.
