A whole smart apartment building in Portland indicates how the Internet of Things might benefit renters. One issue with the technology-incorporating movement is that it relies on homeowners to retrofit or update their houses, making these kinds of advancements less accessible to millennials and younger people who are renting -- and also more likely to adapt to these innovations. IOTAS is trying to change this with their "fully kitted out" smart apartment.

Every unit comes equipped with technology gadget-loving renters will be psyched about, such as smart lights, plugs and sensors. While IOTAS is trying to be intentional with the Internet of Things roll-out by integrating the technology into the design without being intimidating, their system will also learn from your behavior. This helps them offer catered services as renters continue to adapt.
