Smart Home Technology for Optimal Living

Smart-home technology allows you to have more control over your energy use, while optimizing things like security, access, temperature adjustment, lighting, and more. Many of our communities have advanced smart home features like smart thermostats, SkyBell Video Doorbells, USB charging stations, cyber lounges, controlled-access parking, and electric vehicle charging stations.  

Smart Thermostat

Southern California’s weather is rather temperate but when cold spells, heat waves, and precipitation arise, having a smart thermostat is extremely convenient when adjusting to different climates. With a smart thermostat, you can adjust temperatures from both the thermostat itself or your mobile device. If you’re at the office and know it’ll be a bit cooler by the time you get home, you can turn up the thermostat a few degrees to ensure your space is cozy and comfortable when you arrive home. You’ll also be able to adjust the temperature so that while you’re not home you aren’t wasting precious energy to heat or cool an empty apartment and in turn, saving yourself money! You can find Smart Thermostats at these communities: 

SkyBell Wi-Fi Video Doorbell

Your security is paramount to us, which is why so many of our apartment communities feature a SkyBell Wi-Fi Video Doorbell. Never again will you have to wonder who is on the other side of the door. You’ll be able to see them on a screen in front of you. You can see, hear, and speak to your visitor from your phone. You can find SkyBell Wi-Fi Video Doorbells at these communities:  

USB Charging Stations

Let’s face it: we rely on our mobile devices and electronics for almost everything these days. When you see something go below 20% you start looking for the nearest charging port. Having accessible charging stations for electronics is essential. With USB charging ports available, you free up space taken by adapters, allowing for more electronics to be charged concurrently to keep you connected. You can find USB Charging Statins at these communities:  

Electric Vehicle Charging Station

You can do your part to help the environment in many ways. One of which is to drive an electric vehicle, not to mention the amount of money you will save on gas by having one! Many of our properties have electric vehicle (EV) charging stations available to residents. With the lack of fuel needed, you are ensuring a healthier environment for yourself, your children, your friends and neighbors, and future generations. You can find EV Charging Stations at these communities (with more to come soon): 

Co-Working Space & Cyber Lounge

With so much of the workforce currently working from home or remotely, having a space to work outside of the home office can help with productivity and focus. When we are at home, we have the opportunity to be distracted: distracted by laundry, dishes, mail carriers, delivery people, etc. Having access to a co-working space fully equipped with computers and printers allows people who work remotely to have connectivity, comfort, and a distraction-free space.
