Unit 6 Homekit

The latest technology, for guests, residents, and hosts

  • Guests can control each apartment entirely from their own phones or tablets (including keyless entry)

  • Guest access requires no third party app

  • Fully secure and vanishes after check-out

  • Hosts have high-level visibility of how properties are being used along with oversight and control of common areas

At IAM SYSTEMS, we’re so passionate about the benefits of home automation that we created the IAM Hosting service and created our own unique, boutique hotel to showcase the technology.

Consisting of 12 beautiful modern apartments, all housed together in one of Sydney's best locations, this boutique apartment building on Crown Street, in Surry Hills provides accommodation where customers can stay and see what it's like to live in an automated environment.

The combination of modern 2 bedroom apartments as well as 3 bedroom penthouses with private rooftop spa's provides the ultimate serviced, short stay experiences as well as the ultimate demonstration environment of individual apartment control linked with entire building management.

It allows us to demonstrate not just the benefits of home automation, but complete building automation, and how this can make entire remote management of hotel and strata environments possible utilising existing systems.

Unfortunately, Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on tourism, IAM SYSTEMS had to shut down the Surry Hills Apartments in June 2021.
