Over the past 3 years, the number of devices has increased over 200 percent with the average resi- dent registering up to eight devic- es. There is a direct correlation between the number of devices registered per student resident and how scalable and secure connected devices have become. However, we're not in the busi- ness of supplying these devices to the residents as the owner of the community. Our focus is pro- viding the most robust, reliable, and well-managed wired and wireless access to the Internet. That is the fuel of IoT. We are investing in connected devices (thermostats, cameras, sensors and controls) which embed with building systems to enable us to improve the resi- dents' and on-site employees' experience by making more centralized process-designed and data-driven decisions. Our investments in these systems typically generate a higher ROI than most other on-site invest- ments and strategically align us with our goal of owning commu- nities which provide better expe- riences for both our residents and staff. They also support our sustainability initiatives, pro- mote employee engagement, and open the door to create ancillary income initiatives in the future.
