Founded in 2012, Monarc Tree delivers something previously unavailable in the rental marketplace: home automation. The company, a subsidiary of national electrical contractor Van Kirk Electric, makes use of the internet of things to seamlessly build in automation into any large-scale commercial project, allowing users to control their living spaces, and builders to control and monitor their investments. Monarc Tree is based in Winder, Georgia.

Technology is changing the most fundamental truth about large-scale commercial real estate (CRE)—that value is based solely on location, location, location. While it still matters, of course, that a space be close to customers,information-based applications have the potential to add new ways for the CRE sector to create value for customers, differentiate from competitors, and even find new sources of revenue.

Specifically, the Internet of Things (IoT) is already having a significant impact on the CRE industry, helping companies move beyond a focus on cost reduction. IoT applications aim to grow margins and enable features such as dramatically more efficient building operations, enhanced tenant relationships, and new revenue generation opportunities. Consider the increasingly popular smart thermostats that intuitively adjust the temperature, humidity, and light based on residents’ preferences and climatic conditions.

The trend is clear, and people's demand for technology to play a role in both basic human need and that which provides pleasure and joy is not moving backwards.

Make no mistake though, we may think we need to ask people whether they want "smart home" technology as an option, but we really might need to understand that they expect it as a given.
