Find your voice (command)

Next Generation Real Estate . . . Powered by Your Voice

Voice command technology such as Amazon’s Alexa is revolutionizing the way we live, work and play, and multi-family, hospitality, medical and commercial sectors are beginning to understand the impact of this disruptive technology. As Artificial Intelligence becomes more integrated into our daily lives, the experiences will become the expectation of our customers.

A Houston-based REIT, Camden Property Trust is deploying their first smart apartments powered by Amazon’s Alexa platform to deliver on customers’ expectations and changing demands. Alexa integrates the smart lock, thermostat, doorbell, lighting, shower, cameras and appliances in a simple manner for apartment renters’ convenience and efficiencies that provide a WOW living experience. This experience differentiates the Camden brand and provides a valuable amenity without increasing physical amenity space.

How will you incorporate voice control into commercial real estate?
