Apartment living is all the rage these days, which means that your multi-unit housing complex is facing more and more competition if it wants to fill vacancies. With the lifestyle becoming popular in a variety of demographics—even wealthy professionals—potential renters are seeking nothing but the best and the most cutting-edge living.

Luckily, Aufderworld, your Minneapolis provider of audio-visual services and more, has the tech you need to bring your apartment complex into the modern era. Below, we'll let you in on our top picks for the multi-unit housing facility that wants to stand out.

Why Invest in Tech for Your Muliti-Unit Housing Complex?

While saving your tenants money on media is one of the biggest benefits, investing in tech like media rooms creates a gathering space for your residents, promoting socializing and a sense of relaxation.

Having easy-to-find access points with digital displays allows individuals to get the information they need more quickly, saving them time and improving their happiness because they don't have to go out of their way to get their questions answered. 

Adding new technology doesn't just help streamline the property; it fosters better accessibility and convenience, letting your residents know that their comfort is a priority to you.

Commercial DIRECTV

It's a hit for sports bars, as we covered in our commercial AV systems blog, and it'll be a hit for you, too. Streaming services are getting more and more expensive, in addition to multiplying at a seemingly exponential rate. While it's great to have a variety of shows at one's disposal, navigating this expense can be tricky for even affluent renters—which is where commercial DIRECTV comes into play.

When your apartment complex offers immediate access to DIRECTV's robust line of shows and channels, potential renters can save big on their media services, which serves as a valuable enticement.

Media Rooms and Movie Theaters

A common sight in apartment complexes geared toward college students, media rooms and movie theaters serve as wonderful gathering spaces for tenants and their families.

As a built-in technological haven, these sorts of installations can demonstrate that you understand the importance of media in the modern lifestyle—and that you'll do your best to cater to that lifestyle for your potential residents.

Keep in mind that movie theaters and media rooms are two different audio-visual spaces; we dive into which one might be right for you in our AV installation blog. In short, movie theaters are more geared toward film viewing, but media rooms tend to serve as building hubs.

Digital Signage

Looking to make an impression as soon as potential renters walk in for a tour? Digital signage should be your go-to choice. It's a thoroughly modern way of displaying information—not to mention a practical one.

By keeping residents in the loop regarding everything from the weather to building-wide events, you demonstrate to potential renters that you care about their comfort and the convenience of their day-to-day lives.

Video Wall Displays

If you're looking for over-the-top technology to make an unforgettable first impression, video walls are a larger-scale version of digital signage using multiple units of LCD, LED, or projector screens. The system can be customized to fit a small portion or an entirety of a wall, making them ideal for organizations, especially if you need to portray different pieces of information simultaneously.

Video walls can be run with many different types of hardware and can be streamlined to promote your property, engage tenants via touchscreen options, and give you an advantage compared to other properties.
