WegoWise

WegoWise
WegoWise is an online platform that helps property owners, investors, and managers improve the energy and water efficiency of their portfolios. Monitor your property’s water and energy usage for as little as $10/building/month from your computer.

DropCam

DropCam
At $199 per camera, you can easily and affordably set up a wireless video monitoring system around your community’s recreation, leasing and common areas. You can view the cameras right from your mobile device, meaning that if you have to go off-property or you want to check in during the evenings, you can still have an eye on what’s going on. The best part? They’re internet-enabled, so they can be easily set up to send you notifications or to start recording based on activity triggers.

Kevo by Kwikset

Kevo by Kwikset
These ‘smart locks’ eliminate the process of re-keying doors for move in/move outs. Each unit’s door that is outfitted with a Kevo lock can be paired to a resident’s mobile device or user a key fob. eKeys can be assigned to maintenance personnel, contractors and residents’ guests.

PackageLog

PackageLog
This handy platform automatically notifies residents of packages received for them at the clubhouse. PackageLog estimates that it saves five minutes per package for the property manager and that it helps with retention too, adding 4+ ‘touches’ per resident per package. Pricing starts at $49/property/month.

Tile

Tile
Attach a ‘Tile’ to any item (perfect for key rings!) and use the Tile mobile app to find the location of that item. No more lost keyrings, iPads or other items that are constantly getting misplaced around the office. They adhere to almost any surface and have battery life that lasts for a full year from the time they’re shipped. They’re available for $25 each.
