Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of a smart apartment?

Smart apartment solutions improve operating costs, comfort, safety, convenience and appeal at your community, which impacts your bottom line. These solutions can benefit both the property manager as well as the resident:


  • Smart locks. Say goodbye to residents calling about lost keys, or having to re-key units after a move out. With smart locks for apartments, residents can lock/unlock their door remotely using their smart phone or a keypad on the lock. Smart locks can also assist with unattended showings, which can lead to quicker occupancy, or with maintenance requests if the tenant doesn’t have to be home.
  • Smart thermostats allow residents to remotely control their heating and cooling system. This helps reduce high utility bills, while also notifying the property manager if the HVAC system is not working properly so repairs can be made promptly.
  • Smart lights can be controlled from residents’ cellphones, or even programmed on a schedule, to allow residents to come home to a well-lit apartment, or to create the illusion that someone is home. As well, smart lighting around the community helps ensure the safety of your residents.
What are the benefits of a single platform?

Smart apartment devices that work on one platform, one dashboard, one mobile app allow ease of use for the resident and deliver valuable insights to the property manager.  The right platform can make a big difference in the daily operation of your multifamily community.


For example, integrating smart device controls and workflow brings together different data and actions from various devices into one platform, allowing ease of use for residents while delivering operational benefits, such as analytics and reporting, to the property manager. Prioritize platforms that maximize time and resource savings for the property owner and manager.

Do I need new locks for a move-in/move-out?

Not if you have smart locks for apartments. Simply deactivate the old codes and activate and assign new ones. No need to pay for new locks to be installed!

Do you offer indoor video?

While Vector Security offers a variety of indoor video options, we have opted not to include indoor video because of privacy concerns. Our solution does include a smart video doorbell camera so your residents can see who’s at the door and you can see maintenance and repair personnel arrive at the smart home apartment.

How does a Vector Security smart home security system save me money?

With smart home apartment technology installed, your property is differentiated from others on the market, making it more marketable. Depending on what solution you choose, you will benefit from improved operational efficiencies and lower operational expenses. Also, smart home apartment technologies improve resident retention. 
Smart locks for apartments save costs associated with re-keying when keys are lost or when you have new residents, and you can let maintenance or repair personnel in from your smartphone, from anywhere. No need for you to be on site. No need for them to get keys from somewhere else, driving up labor costs. 
Your smart city apartment property becomes more energy efficient when you and your residents can control or set the thermostat and lights from anywhere using the Vector Security App.
Our flood detection solution lets you know immediately if a water leak happens, minimizing the cost and inconvenience of repair. 

On average how much savings will I see from a smart thermostat?

If rules and schedules are set up, savings of 8-10% in heating and air conditioning costs are typical. We have seen savings up to 16% on heating and 23% on cooling.

What happens if a water detector goes off?

Your system will automatically provide early detection notifications through email/text and on the online property management dashboard.
