Alloy SmartHome, a provider of smart home automation solutions for builders and developers and co-brand with SmartRent, is collaborating with Ring to integrate Ring Alarm now with Alloy SmartHome’s self-guided tour technology. This partnership helps homeowners and property managers easily offer and manage self-guided tours by prospective buyers and renters.
The Advantage of Ring Alarm
Ring Alarm enables property owners to arm or disarm homes remotely from the Ring app, or automatically via compatible smart lock integrations. With the integration between Ring Alarm and Alloy SmartHome, property managers and sales consultants can now remotely manage a home’s security system via SmartRent’s Community Manager interface.
The user can set the alarm for preselected times, with a buffer before and after scheduled tours. Should any incidents occur that would trigger the alarm, Ring Alarm will notify the monitoring company, who will reach out to confirm that emergency services are needed. This feature is especially useful for managing self-guided home tours, helping create a safer and more seamless experience for both the seller and the prospective buyer.
Alloy SmartHome Embraces Digital Transformation
The Alloy SmartHome Ring Alarm feature comes at a critical time of digital transformation for the real estate industry. Homeownership continues to rise amid the challenges of COVID-19, and both property sellers and buyers seek the safety and convenience of remote, contactless transactions.
After launching its self-guided home tour solution in 2018, SmartRent has since seen accelerated demand for additional safety features, and the Ring Alarm integration with Alloy SmartHome for single-family homes is an important step forward.
“We’re proud to offer this integration with Ring Alarm as part of a shared vision to futureproof single-family homes through connected technology solutions,” said Lucas Haldeman, CEO and co-founder of SmartRent. “While secure tours are an especially urgent need during the pandemic, it’s an innovation that will change the home sales process permanently. Both property sellers and buyers will embrace remote solutions that make the real estate experience more secure, convenient and accessible for all.”
“Our collaboration with SmartRent and Alloy SmartHome is helping drive the future of real estate,” said Mike Harris, president, Ring Solutions. “By providing the technology to support a secure tour experience, we are enabling simplicity and safety during the home buying process. We hope to make this process even more seamless for customers as they tour and purchase their future home.”
Lennar on Board with New Tech
Lennar Corporation, one of the nation’s leading homebuilders, is the first to use the Ring Alarm integration with Alloy SmartHome as part of Lennar Communities Connected by Ring, a suite of connected devices pre-installed in new Lennar homes and managed via the Ring app. Through its strategic collaboration with Ring and the Alloy SmartHome platform, Lennar continues to push forward a new industry standard of simplicity and security in property management.
Additionally, SmartRent offers a range of connected, brand-agnostic solutions designed to give single-family and multifamily property owners, managers and residents more efficiency, convenience and security across their property. Solutions include the recently announced Alloy Parking, the Alloy Fusion all-in-one touchscreen hub and thermostat, Alloy Access for access control, and self-guided tours. Today, companies like Essex Property Trust, MAA and Aimco use SmartRent to connect, automate, protect and manage tens of thousands of housing units nationwide.
