01 Apr MultiFamily Technology – Join the Discussion
Welcome to the latest edition of MultiFamily Technology, the weekly news report from InfiniSys and Richard Holtz. Our goal is to raise awareness and help put low-voltage technology issues on the table for everyone in our industry.
We all seek to create the best possible short-term and long-term housing projects. With each passing year, our smart phones, automobiles, payments, activity trackers and business applications become ‘smarter’. The expectation is that our homes should have this same intelligence. Every significant technology brand – Apple, Alphabet (Google), Amazon, Facebook, AirBnB to name a few, have released or will release their ‘smart home’ platform. How do we integrate technology, both built-in and on our customers’ mobile devices with a ‘brick and mortar’ building? While the life of a building is measured in decades, changes in the technology our residents use is measured in months. More than ever, proper planning and design make the difference in the long-term success of our buildings.
Among the topics we will cover are:
Physical infrastructure in a wireless world
Fiber vs Copper
The future of Coaxial Cable
Managed vs Unmanaged WiFi
Networked Access Control and the Leasing Office
Lessons from the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Big Hack
Video Surveillance in a Smart Camera Age
Access Control – Smartphone vs Fob vs Card vs Key
…and that’s just the beginning.
We hope that you’ll interact with us to grow the discussion and possibly, the solutions. Send us your topics and ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, your comments and questions are welcome too.
