  • Using RFID in Real Estate Property Management

    GAO RFID can work with you your organization to explore ways in which a solution can be developed to monitor assets, inventory, confidential documentation, and maintenance; reports are easily accessed via our web-based management interface, giving property managers and real estate brokers real-time information on the property’s condition and well-being. Keyless Entry Residential keyless entry replaces the need for traditional keys. RFID Key Fobs are not duplicable, which ensures property managers that only authorized tenants are in possession of keys. In situations where an RFID Key Fob is in the wrong hands, the specific ID associated to the fob can be accessed and removed from the system so that access is no longer possible. Tenants can be charged a small deposit in the event they lose their fob. Keyless entry is the most secure form for having access to your residence, a fob or RFID card that goes missing can simply be encoded and reproduced with a different identification code. Fob keys prevent duplication by unsavory people who seek access to certain residences. Time and Attendance Personnel Employees that work on the grounds of a multi-unit residence such as the building manager, concierge, janitorial staff, security, landscaping, and maintenance crews can all be monitored if we explore the application of an RFID Personnel Tracking System. The benefits may include:
    • Record the entry and exit times for all employees
    • Enhanced security, personnel can only access pre-determined restricted areas
    • Locate staff location within the office
    Document Tracking Confidential documents containing tenant background checks can be tagged and tracked for security. Tagging important documents prevents private documents from falling into the wrong hands. RFID can be explored; just like tagging assets, tagging of documents can also be a great way to reduce labour costs that is traditionally associated to countless hours searching for lost documents in dozens of file folders and cabinets. Tracking Apartment Items Furnished residential units are sometimes rented to executives or short term tenants, these units come complete with furniture, dishes, cutlery and other items. The tagging of these items prevents theft.
