What is SmartRent?
From humble beginnings to $100+ million in funding
SmartRent is a smart home automation solution provider. Our proprietary software integrates with third-party hardware and other software vendors to provide users with one platform to efficiently manage and remotely control IoT connected devices in a home or building.
Founded in 2017, SmartRent is an enterprise smart home automation company providing solutions for rental property owners, managers and renters, as well as homebuilders and developers. SmartRent’s solutions are designed to provide communities with seamless visibility and control over assets while delivering additional revenue opportunities through all-in-one home control offerings for residents.
The SmartRent Story
Prior to SmartRent’s launch, the co-founders of SmartRent built a similar home automation platform for single family rentals that successfully launched in over 25,000 homes spanning across 15 states. They were able to test the performance of many different types of IoT devices and perfect the platform to properly handle the concept of dual smart home management: where a renter directly controls the smart devices within their own home, but a property manager can remotely monitor its overall health, receive alerts on time-sensitive requests, and administer access credentials for work orders.
After years of platform iterations and a lot of innovation, SmartRent has been able to expand product offerings, platform integrations, hardware partners as well as the industries we serve. Our rapid expansion is the result of our deeply-rooted passion for leveraging technology to solve problems caused by inefficient processes, and our dedication to providing the very best solutions to help our customers’ communities thrive.
