The National Apartment Association (NAA) hosted the annual Apartmentalize conference in Chicago, Illinois, August 30-September 2, 2021, with the theme: Reconnect Restart Reenergize. The STRATIS and RealPage teams brought in the Smart Suite that debuted at RealWorld in July in Nashville, Tennessee.

Here are some of the takeaways from gathering with apartment professionals from across the industry:

    Do More with Wireless: Leverage Rental Wi-Fi: Invest in the infrastructure to enable bulk Wi-Fi (and other protocols too like Bluetooth and Z-Wave) across the property, and provide the always-on, resident-ready experience.This can also support Bluetooth or Z-Wave-based energy management devices, like water leak sensors. This eliminates the abysmal support and consistency from in-unit gig Wi-Fi (what we call “sliver solutions”) and internet access brings a significant return on investment (ROI).
