Can Your Building Common Areas Benefit From Smart Technology?

Make Your Property Stand Out in the World’s Most Competitive Market

Of the top-selling condominiums in New York City last year, a few things stood out among all of them. Dazzling amenities played a big part, including terraces, children play areas, fitness centers, lounges, outdoor entertainment areas and, of course, elegant concierge services. Another thing to consider: all of the top selling condominiums were built after 2016.

Not only do you need to have impressive common areas, but they need to have a certain level of modernity. Developing the right ambiance is no longer just about architectural features; technology is playing a much more significant part every day. This blog highlights some ways that MDU automation ensures your property can compete with all of the big boys in the NYC market.

Easy-to-Use Technology

Enhancing your building is about more than just adding technology. Everyone needs to know how to use it; otherwise, it can become overwhelming. An MDU automation system offers a variety of control options from touchpads to keypads that make it easy for both tenants and employees to manage lights, climate, entertainment, security and more. A professional partner like Audio Command Systems can offer a quick training session to managers on how to use everything as soon as installation is complete.

 

Reduce Your MDU’s Energy Bills

When it comes to common areas, energy waste can be a big problem. Every time a resident uses one of your shared spaces, there's the risk that they'll leave on the lights or other electronics. Now you can take advantage of sensors or schedules to automatically turn everything off when the room isn’t being used. If a common area is empty, you can automatically close shades to reduce heat gain in the summer and insulate the space in the winter, and have thermostats go into an energy-saving mode.

 

An Aesthetic Approach to Technology

Style and technology are often seen as at odds with each other, but that doesn’t have to be the case. A variety of tools are available to help your technology camouflage perfectly with the décor. Your interior designer can work with us to ensure all components match up with their vision for the building.

Go with speakers flush-mounted on the ceiling for all your audio needs. Reduce clutter on the walls by replacing wall switches with elegant keypads available in a variety of finishes including clear glass, satin brass, and matte black. Each keypad can be custom engraved to match with your preferred uses. Meanwhile, all AV equipment can be neatly hidden in dedicated closets.

Eliminate Costly Downtime

Nothing reeks of unprofessionalism more than technology that doesn’t work. Whether it’s the internet going out or the thermostat not working, tenants will let you know their discontent quickly. Some MDU automation systems come with built-in monitoring so technicians can notice problems as soon as they occur and resolve them before you have a line of angry tenants at the front desk. In a high-end rental market like NYC, this is pivotal when it comes to your tenant retention rates.
