The ultimate digital concierge

Market

In 2014 there were over 6.6 million apartment units in buildings containing 50 or more units. Of these homes, 50% will have a smart home device inside its confines by the year 2020. Currently, the multifamily residential industry has little to no offering for in-unit concierge services.

With nationwide vacancy rates at 4.2% buildings are constantly competing for renters, often relying on the value of their services and amenities as differentiators to attract tenants.

How it Works

The Urbane system is introduced as an added amenity, or unit upgrade, to multi-family buildings. The wall mounted, tablet-based interface is located near the unit entry or similar point of convenience. Existing outlets, thermostats, or electrical switches can be used to power the tablet.

 

Urbane presents users with a variety of network-specific experiences, notifications, and controls. At its core, Urbane connects residents to their building, their city, and each other.
