Is Sensor Turning into Property Manager?

The sensor-enabled remote monitoring system enables property owners to modernize property security as well as improve the experience for the customers.

FREMONT, CA: While geo-information landscape is changing rapidly, managing commercial properties efficiently and cost-effectively can be challenging. Recent technological innovations and operational capabilities are making it possible to achieve the aforementioned objective. Especially, the proliferation and increased adoption of IoT devices is enabling the real estate players as well as the property owners to ensure the security of their properties at affordable prices.

The state of monitoring has improved over a period. Conventionally, cameras and alarms were the only technical means of remote property monitoring. However, modern technology allows property managers to deploy sensors and automatic alarm systems that can prevent loss or damage to properties. Further, sensors can also be used to monitor individual assets within the property. For instance, water sensors can be deployed in a water heater to detect leaks even before they suffer considerable damage. Similarly, local light sensors can monitor light output in parking lots, path and walkways, underground garages, thereby eliminating hazards that can result in costly litigations.

Incorporating wireless sensor systems for property and asset management is a better alternative than relying on renters. While the installation may cost initially, the timely data insights generated from the devices will certainly save costly replacements and notify the property managers proactively in case of an impending issue. Further, sensor-based monitoring capability is more reliable than tenants who can be careless, resulting in massive impacts in case of damages. 

Real estate is a fairly competitive market where a minuscule difference may result in a massive impact. Deploying wireless sensor-based security devices will not only save operational expenses but also enhance the experience for the customers. Informed tenants are more likely to stay longer at the property than the ones who are faced with sudden leaks and damages. Moreover, a sensor-laced property will enable the property owners to attract potential customers as well.

Sensors will fairly contribute to the modern remote monitoring systems in real estate. Real estate firms have realized the potential of sensor-based monitoring techniques and are deploying them for securing their properties.
