One group of college students in Midtown Atlanta is already living with the future of visitors’ management systems. They don’t think much about the added safety it provides their landlord and property owner, instead, they enjoy being able to seamlessly add their own smart speakers and other smart technology to the digital smart hub.
The single apartment unit at The Mark Atlanta, off-campus housing on Spring Street in Midtown, is a pilot program for Landmark Properties to test the cutting-edge technology available in visitors’ management systems. The in-unit display panel shows tenants’ guests calling from the building’s entry panel. Being able to see exactly who’s requesting access makes the entire property safer.
In the pilot program, the display panel also connects with the installed smart thermostat and smart water leak detection system while allowing each new set of tenants to connect their own smart devices. Increasingly, students want to bring their own smart devices from home to school. Providing a digital hub already wired within the unit makes this easy.
The pilot has been successful and is planned to be launched in units as early as 2023.
For student housing, especially, this level of smart controls within the home is quickly becoming the standard.
Today’s modern visitor management systems allow residential and commercial buildings to verify and track each guest coming onto the property. A quality system will make sure that all visitors requesting property access and entering the building are verified guests of the building’s tenants.
