Vivint Smart Home Adds Guest Access to Comprehensive Smart Home Suite

Vivint Smart Home, a smart home company, has introduced Guest Access, a first-to-market feature that allows property managers to provide secure, remote access to smart home-enabled multifamily communities, the company said.

Part of Vivint´s suite of smart home products designed for multifamily properties, Guest Access eliminates the need for property managers to be physically present when vendors arrive to do work or prospects opt to self-tour.

Through Vivint Site Manager, an interactive dashboard, property managers can completely customize the parameters for visitor access, including specific locations, timeframes and frequency of visits (for one time or repeated visits). Guests then receive a unique link to access designated units, amenity access points and common areas around a property during the specified time period.

Smart home products and services are in demand from younger renters who expect property owners to provide enhanced benefits through technology. Millennials account for the largest number of renters in the US, heading more than 40 percent of the households that rent their homes.

With Vivint, property managers can offer a new level of convenience and security for their residents. From a single Vivint Smart Home app, residents can control lights, locks and thermostats; arm and disarm their security system; and view live video and recorded clips from anywhere.
