Latch, Google Nest Partner to Bring Modern Apartment Living to AvalonBay’s Newest Concept
- Nov 23, 2020
Renter demand for technology-enabled conveniences continues to climb, according to the latest NMHC Apartment Resident Preferences Report, and many developers are working tirelessly to accommodate evolving preferences. AvalonBay is top among the developers who are adapting their communities to deliver renters the experience they’re looking for.
As they prepared to go to market with their latest development, Kanso Twinbrook, AvalonBay needed to evaluate which amenities would give residents the streamlined, smart, and more modern experience they need at scale—and Latch’s partnership with Google Nest, enabling fleetwide management of Google’s Nest Thermostat E, became a key component of their solution.
Latch is a customizable, full-building operating system. At the core is LatchOS, the next generation software that powers every device to bring to life a connected, full smart-building experience. By integrating directly with a wide range of partners across categories, from smart home devices to property management systems, LatchOS becomes even more powerful.
Now, by partnering with Latch, Google Nest enables multifamily owners to more easily manage their Google Nest thermostats, and using LatchOS, they can oversee every device in vacant residences and common areas all in one place. This industry-leading partnership streamlines operations for building staff while also delivering time-saving conveniences for residents who live an on-the-go lifestyle.
Property managers and residents of Kanso Twinbrook will be the first to experience the new partnership. This integration delivers a more streamlined experience than ever before for both building staff and residents—which is why AvalonBay has installed Nest Thermostat E and Latch devices at its newest apartment living concept.
“Latch and Google Nest are a key part of our strategy in enabling associates to operate the building from afar and empowering residents with powerful tools and unparalleled convenience,” said Karen Hollinger, AvalonBay’s senior vice president, Strategic Initiatives. “This partnership is a great example of two best-in-class technology brands joining forces to deliver best-in-class living experiences in our AvalonBay communities.”
