With Privacy And Security Concerns, The Smart Apartment Might Not Be The Upgrade Tenants Want
Not everyone wants a smart home and not everyone feels safe in one. Those renting apartments hardly have a say in it as their landlords make the decision. Converting a house into a smart home is seen as a way of saving money in the long run and to attract more tenants. Smart homes also offer convenience and benefits to both the tenants and the landlord. While property managers can monitor waste, etc., tenants get to use expensive IoT devices without purchasing them.
SmartRent, a smart apartment company, is now present in over 20,000 homes today. SmartRent claims they don’t share their data on tenants and to maintain their privacy, their details are cleared every 30 days. However, not every company works in the same manner. Stratis, Zego, and Vivint are other smart home companies that give away the tenant’s data for marketing.
Not everyone wants a smart home. Those who have it forced on them don’t feel safe in their own residences.
Normally, landlords need to give the tenants notice before coming to their residence. But, with the smart homes, landlords get a constant update. SmartRent takes security and privacy concerns seriously and has biannual penetration tests. Just as with everything else, there are vulnerable points here as well. Connection issues play havoc with your peace of mind as well. Most users are happy with smart gadgets but are apprehensive of having a full-fledged smart home.
