Rent a Smart Apartment | NewsWatch Review

By: Dory Jackson


The technology craze is definitely not a phase. Now, even more than before, technology is integrating its way through our daily lives. Most of us have succumbed to purchasing the all-mighty smartphone (i.e. iPhones, LG’s products, etc.). In addition, people are starting to feel the pressure to purchase popular tablets such as the iPad and Surface Pro. Still, technology is beginning to integrate itself within our homes in an interesting way–Smart Apartments.

IOTAS (Internet of Things as Service)—a Portland-based company—have been working on a way to spread the interest in smart home technology. If they can effectively do so, this could potentially be of mainstream interest. Uniquely, IOTAS plans to reach out to millennials. However, this age group tends to be the ones least likely to own a home. So, how does IOTAS plan on accomplishing this task?


IOTAS intends to remove the difficulties that come with installing this kind of technology in the home, including making this a more cost-effective practice for consumers. Installing these advanced programs in the home is a very expensive thing. Therefore, if IOTAS can find a way to make his more affordable to the masses, smart home technology could surely become mainstream. The company’s services will install software, alongside an assortment of other tech goodies into homes (e.g. monitors, etc.).

Despite this groundbreaking news from IOTAS, they are not the only company looking to launch mainstream smart home technology.


Latch, a company famous for developing a smart lock two years ago, is working on getting their final first product out to the masses. The smart lock will eliminate the use of old-school things, like keys. Instead, this product will allow for the ability to unlock your door by using a passcode or mobile app.

The New York-based company has received funding from many contributors. Therefore, their smart lock could arrive soon. Unfortunately, Latch’s first smart lock product will be solely for apartment owners only, not tenants.

Latch’s product could be very beneficial because it provides an extra sense of security. Yet, it is still a work in progress.

The smart apartment and home technology isn’t a completely dead idea. However, it will take some time for this trend to catch on.
