WegoWise
WegoWise is an online platform that helps property owners, investors, and managers improve the energy and water efficiency of their portfolios. Monitor your property’s water and energy usage for as little as $10/building/month from your computer.

DropCam
At $199 per camera, you can easily and affordably set up a wireless video monitoring system around your community’s recreation, leasing and common areas. You can view the cameras right from your mobile device, meaning that if you have to go off-property or you want to check in during the evenings, you can still have an eye on what’s going on. The best part? They’re internet-enabled, so they can be easily set up to send you notifications or to start recording based on activity triggers.

PackageLog estimates that it saves five minutes per package for the property manager and that it helps with retention too, adding 4+ ‘touches’ per resident per package.
