Dwellwell Analytics has added two new artificial intelligence-driven issue-detection features to its property-monitoring platform — a toilet malfunction alert and security monitoring for unauthorized occupants.
The malfunction alert uses acoustic sensors and neural AI to identify toilet sounds within a unit and determine whether a malfunction is occurring. This allows property managers to quickly deploy fixes and save money and water, according to a press release. The security monitor can detect property usage, allowing managers to determine if a home is abandoned or if short-term rental guests have stayed too long, and does not make use of video or voice recognition.
The Series 9M mesh railing by Superior Aluminum Products combines a modern mesh aesthetic with a code-compliant, low-maintenance frame, according to a press release shared with Multifamily Dive. The mechanically fastened rail is resistant to wind, rain and extreme temperatures, and requires no welding or painting on site.
The mesh is available in woven wire or round or square perforated panels, plus four finish options: black, white, dark bronze and gray. All products are built and installed to project specifications.
Made to last
The Perpetua Quartz Collection by Walker Zanger is the latest addition to the manufacturer’s engineered surfaces line, created from a quartz base. The slabs are highly scratch resistant, according to the manufacturer, and also work well as a base for more graphic tiles or slabs.
The line includes 33 slab designs in variations of light gray, dark gray, cream and brown, according to a press release shared with Multifamily Dive.
The Rainstick Shower — made by the company of the same name — is a Wi-Fi enabled circular showerhead equipped with water recirculation technology that it uses to capture, clean and circulate the water used during a shower. The cleaning process removes hair and debris, disinfects and kills viruses with UV-LED technology.
The showerhead saves up to 80% of water and 80% of energy used by a traditional low-flow shower, according to a press release shared with Multifamily Dive. The Rainstick smartphone app also allows users to track their water and energy savings.
