PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- STRATIS IoT, the leading Internet of Things (IoT) platform for Sidewalk to Sofa™ access, energy, asset protection, and automation management and control for multifamily and student housing, today announced a company milestone of 350,000 apartment unit installations globally. Furthermore, the company established partnerships with Hello Alfred and Zen Ecosystems to continue to improve IoT connected living for this rapidly growing market sector. These partnerships enable crucial new features as the platform continues to scale nationwide to provide apartment dwellers with connected technology experiences that were previously only available in single-family homes.
Recently, STRATIS announced that the platform has been installed in 20 percent of all new units delivered nationwide in 2019. On the heels of that momentum, the company has reached this critical milestone as the year comes to an end and developed crucial partnerships to build the most seamless connected living experience possible. The leading residential experience company, Hello Alfred, combines professionally trained hospitality experts and its proprietary technology to anticipate residents' needs and execute tasks that allow them to free up time and mental energy to focus on the things that matter most. Now, buildings that install the STRATIS platform will also gain access for their residents to one of Hello Alfred's technology-forward offerings, providing an additional layer of convenience and a point of differentiation for building owners.
"Multifamily and student housing are massive markets that were largely neglected by smart home device manufacturers and ecosystems until now," said Felicite Moorman, CEO and CoFounder of STRATIS. "As the number of new units built per year continues to rise, so do resident expectations. Tech-enabled living is quickly becoming a must-have, not a nice-to-have, and STRATIS enables this market sector to leapfrog the living experiences available in all but the most customized designs of single family homes today."
Also core to the STRATIS mission is improving energy usage for its customers in multifamily and student housing. With Zen Ecosystems, STRATIS supports both the WiFi and Zigbee versions of the popular Zen Thermostat, enabling HVAC control for residents and property owners. The STRATIS integration facilitates mass-device control for unoccupied units, scheduling, geofenced scenes, and more. This will enable energy-saving capabilities for building owners, adding to the existing ROI benefits of the STRATIS platform. This is being leveraged in energy management research that STRATIS conducts through a National Renewable Energy Lab's (NREL) Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN2) grant.
STRATIS IoT has announced a number of new partnerships in Q4 of 2019 including a pilot with Google Nest, as well as their participation in the Wells Fargo IN2. With this recent momentum, STRATIS aims to normalize smart technology in multifamily and student housing buildings all with the goal of improving resident lifestyle and allowing building owners to capitalize on increased ROI.
