REAL ESTATE TECHNOLOGY,HOME AND DESIGN
Rently | January 12, 2023
Rently, the industry leader in self-touring and smart home technology solutions, recently introduced a new feature on its Smart Home App. This new feature will assist technicians in accelerating the installation process using automated tools. It will also enable property managers to receive real-time notifications about successful smart home activations.
Installers can now easily verify their identity and begin the installation process using Rently's Smart Home App. The app also provides stepwise instructions, guiding the installers through the entire process. This removes the need to call technical support to activate devices, which leads to significant time savings.
Merrick Lackner, the CEO of Rently, states, "Rently recognizes the critical role that installers play in the deployment of smart home technology." He further added, "By eliminating the requirement for installers to contact intermediary technical support teams—just to verify device testing and activation—we hope to save them time, facilitate their projects, and make it easy for them to report their success to managers who receive these real-time updates on their Rently desktop portal."
