Smart Home Technology A Differentiator For Christopher Todd Communities

PHOENIX, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Christopher Todd Communities, the fastest growing Phoenix-based developer of innovative rental smart home communities, has signed a four-year agreement with Vivint Smart Home, a leading smart home company in the U.S. to provide integrated smart home systems for its residents.

“Renters in today’s market demand innovation,” said Todd Wood, CEO of Christopher Todd Communities. That starts with the ability to control climate, lighting and door access from a single app on their mobile device. “Technology gives them peace of mind, package delivery to the door and saves up to 12% on heating and cooling costs,” noted Wood.

Christopher Todd Communities selected Vivint Smart Properties, Vivint’s solution for multi-family and rental properties, for its professionally installed and supported smart home systems. The agreement allows Christopher Todd Communities to provide the convenience and security of smart home technology to its customers for years to come.

“The advantages of smart home technology are no longer exclusive to homeowners – multi-family and rental communities are the next evolution of smart home,” said Thomas Few, vice president of business development at Vivint. “Christopher Todd Communities is ahead of the curve and its residents will benefit.”

Christopher Todd Communities is quickly expanding its portfolio in the Phoenix metro area and beyond. Each single-story, single-family one- and two-bedroom home features not only the smart home technology, but high-speed internet access, community wifi, private backyards, doggy doors, resort-style pool and spa, barbecues and event lawn. All communities also feature smart entry gate technology.

The company’s first community, located in Surprise, Arizona, leased up in record time. For many residents, the technology offerings were key.
