BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Local News supporter Hotwire Communications — a leader in high speed internet in South Florida — says it is seeing a new trend. Communities installing WiFi that spans an entire property. From tennis courts to pools, from fields to lakes, Hotwire says the new hybrid work-from-home lifestyle means homeowners are working from everywhere within a community.
Hotwire shared the following information with BocaNewsNow.com:
A Truly Connected Community
During the pandemic, a dramatic shift in the way we work and do business changed our views on what it means to be connected. Hybrid learning and work, and increased digital interactions became more commonplace in everyone’s lives. And this does not appear to be changing any time soon.
In fact, a growing number of residents are asking for WiFi to be available throughout their community, to stay in touch with family and friends, add variety to the new work-from-home lifestyle, and connect to smart home devices.
Common area WiFi networks have become critical to delivering an exceptional lifestyle experience for residents. Whether your community is a collection of single-family homes, or a downtown, luxury apartment, offering community WiFi as an amenity can provide a host of benefits for both the residents and the property.
Attract New Renters and Homeowners
Rental properties are often large, cement structures that limit cellular reception, making it frustrating for residents to make and receive calls in their homes. Since most cellular devices are capable of utilizing WiFi for calls, a WiFi connection throughout the building would give residents the convenience of making and taking calls without worrying about a poor connection.
With many workers swapping the corporate office for their home office, a community-wide WiFi infrastructure also speaks to the new work-from-home culture, and provides more flexibility for where work can be conducted.
What’s more, the smart home device industry is flourishing. More and more families are using smart devices to turn on and off lights, lock the front door, and monitor the safety of their beloved pets when they’re away. Community WiFi would make it easier for residents to utilize these devices that bring a virtual helping hand to their daily routines.
Retain Valued Residents
Once residents experience the ease and convenience of accessing community WiFi, it will be more difficult for them to no longer have such a valuable service. Researching the trends in the housing market, you’ll find that community amenities like community-wide and turnkey WiFi solutions are in high-demand. Making these services readily available, provides the convenience residents want but also commands premium rental or association fees to offset the investment from the property.
Properties that don’t offer such amenities can’t compete with the influx of new, amenity-rich properties. And though rent rates or association fees might be higher at these newer properties, the trends show that residents are willing to pay for the concierge-level services and convenience they afford. A well-established internet services provider will offer advanced, in-demand technology, along with the dedicated support needed to ensure the property does not also have to have an in-house IT staff that will manage the network.
Enhance Your Community
And while community-wide WiFi makes a huge impact on residents, it offers great value to those who manage the property, as well.
Community managers can access insight into how amenities are used, share promotional offers with residents, and even incorporate direct advertising from local businesses that are customized for your residents. A community-wide network also allows you to utilize digital tools that help monitor common areas to keep track of proper maintenance, ensure residents’ safety, and provide WiFi-enabled entertainment solutions.
Prospective residents can be treated to a virtual tour of your community through instant-access viewing capabilities, allowing them to view model apartments or homes, as well as amenities such as pool areas, playgrounds, parking facilities, and more.
Community-wide WiFi lets your residents stay connected whether indoors or out, by providing with bandwidth that’s capable of surfing, scanning, streaming, and more. Make your community stand out by providing your residents with the most advanced technology to keep them connected.
