[Note from editor: The “Mastermind Showcase” highlights companies and news from members of the GEM. Today’s showcase: Homebase.]

By combining smart access control, community WiFi, device automation and digital payments, Homebase offers property managers and tenants a hubless solution for smart apartments. With Homebase’s fully managed Community Wifi, landlords have the option to offer free WiFi as a tenant amenity with options to upgrade internet speeds with Aruba network technology.

With integrations from Stripe, Honeywell, and LG, tenants can use the Homebase app to pay their rent, change the thermostat, and even check the status of communal washing machines.

What do we like?: By acting as a value-added reseller for IoT devices and Internet service providers, Homebase is a single point of contact for maintenance on a portion of a connected building, with a reported time savings of 20 minutes per maintenance ticket.
