DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Renowned real estate expert and devoted philanthropist, Marcus Hiles has introduced impeccable rental communities across Texas, turning a luxury home style into the dream that every working American can now afford. Staying on top of innovations in smart house technologies, Hiles shares his views about the latest additions to the network of the “Internet of Things”.
App-controlled deadbolts let users decide how they want to open up their homes and to whom: entry codes can be preset for different family members or even issued on a temporary basis for visiting workers like pet sitters and cleaning personnel. Many smart locks send an alert that a guest has arrived, while an HD camera with microphone provides a live feed, allowing hosts to communicate with waiting company, even when not actually on the property to receive them.
With Wi-Fi doorbells, residents can even utilize the high-definition stream for night vision views in darker environments, and to protect their privacy by engaging a quiet mode when wishing to remain undisturbed. The latter function is particularly useful for keeping a resting newborn happy or preserving a Saturday afternoon nap. Marcus Hiles says that even our beds are getting smarter: sleepers for newborns play music, shine soothing lights, and lightly rock babies with automated settings; while adult mattresses track behavior patterns and analyze the data to improve sleep quality by adjusting the position.
Marcus Hiles has helped to transform the upmarket rental landscape throughout Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio. His passion for the environment has resulted in an ongoing campaign to increase the state’s shade tree canopy by planting a total of 30,000 trees during the last 10 years and donating over 59 acres of parkland to preserve wildlife habitats and accessible green spaces.
