ADT will work with HHHunt to install more than 7,700 apartments in 19 communities across four states with smart home gear and property management software.
BOCA RATON, Fla. — ADT (NYSE: ADT) is collaborating with HHHunt, a diversified leader in real estate development, to install smart home and property automation technology into new and existing HHHunt multifamily and student housing communities.
ADT adds HHHunt to its growing list of prominent real estate partners enhancing their communities with smart home solutions, according to an announcement. ADT will work with HHHunt to install more than 7,700 apartment homes in 19 communities across four states with smart hubs, smart locks, smart thermostats and integrate into industry-leading property management software.
Of these residences, more than 1,300 will be student housing apartment homes, reflecting a growing demand for smart home amenities for student living.
“One of our core brand promises is to be a provider of quality products and services,” says Lance Goss, vice president of apartment living at HHHunt. “This new partnership with ADT will provide our residents with the latest in smart home technology and automation. We strive to consistently innovate and deliver the best apartment living experience for our residents and team members.”
All apartment homes will feature an assortment of integrated devices including smart hubs, smart thermostats and smart locks giving residents access to the latest in smart home security technology. The devices will allow residents to benefit from the conveniences of smart home automation. They can personalize their apartments’ functions to accommodate their lifestyles through the use of “scenes.”
Scenes can be set to adjust the temperature when the resident comes within proximity of their property through app-based geo-fencing, or lights can be set to on during showing hours and off afterwards to save energy, for example.
Property team members can also use ADT’s solution to drive operational savings by handling lock-out requests remotely, controlling thermostats in vacant units and eliminating costly key tracking systems. ADT’s integration with HHHunt’s property management software, Yardi, will also streamline residents’ move-in and move-out process and reduce time required for property maintenance requests and unit access, according to the announcement.
“The partnership with HHHunt demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the multifamily sector and our drive to offer the best smart home solutions to enhance value for residents and provide cost saving benefits for property managers,” says Ken Porpora, chief growth officer, ADT.
Porpora continues, “As the sector continues to grow at a rapid pace, we are able to offer partners like HHHunt exclusive and customized smart home automation solutions for residents in diverse living situations – from multifamily units to student housing.”
