Housing Technology and FireAngel guide

Published with support from FireAngel, the Housing Technology Guide to Connected Home supports housing providers in how they can use smart technology across property portfolios to gather data to support their ongoing operations and strategic planning.

Moving beyond the ‘tactical’ use of connected device data by individual tenants, such as smart meters and reduced energy consumption, the guide covers how housing providers and local authorities can aggregate torrents of data and turn it into meaningful insights while ensuring their tenants and properties remain secure and protected.
