Meet the 🆕 Homebase Manager

By March 11, 2021March 18th, 2021In the News

Homebase is excited to release our new Homebase Manager. We’ve listened to your feedback and created an improved, customizable platform designed to streamline your workflows and provide an effortless user experience.

Safety and security

Our new integration with Eagle Eye Networks makes Homebase Access an all-encompassing, smart building security solution. Now you can view your property’s cloud-based security cameras and review recorded video directly in Homebase Manager.

Combining smart access control with networked security cameras allows staff the comfort of always knowing what is happening at the property and provides residents with an added level of safety and trust.

Lost key fobs are a known security risk at multifamily properties.

We doubled-down on creating a great key fob management system with a whole new design including features like auto-expire, sync status & remote revoking for fobs.

Simplified stay creation and management

Creating a stay now includes customizable presets for access start and end times. Set a standard access start and end time for your property to make creating stays for traditional leases more efficient – or configure access start and end times in 10-minute increments to easily schedule short-term rentals and third-party vendor access.

Improved access control configurations allow you to easily grant or revoke user access to community doors and further personalize door permissions as needed.

Use these configurations to customize individual resident access down to a specific storage locker. Offer additional, exclusive amenities at your property such as a pet spa, bike storage, or wine lounge and grant access to residents who opt-in.

Let prospective residents “test drive” the smart apartment experience by issuing a virtual key that grants temporary access for their own self-guided tour. Upon authorization, future renters get to preview the perks of smart access control and devices, visualizing what it’s like to be a resident at your smart building.

It’s now straightforward to adjust settings of a stay while it is active. Easily manage roommate changes and coliving by adding or removing residents within a stay or unit. Start creating stays before residents arrive with access starting on move-in day, then go back and adjust settings as needed.

Improved user experience

We’ve implemented a reorganized main menu with a focus on actions, workflows, and people management, allowing you to quickly navigate through Homebase Manager. Create a stay, assign a key fob, or add a staff member in seconds using the main menu actions button.

Newly added quick-actions are found on the right side of nearly every screen to streamline your workflows. Use quick-actions in the Stays tab to edit stay information or manage payments.

Quickly find and organize information using new custom filtering to allow you to view information by community, filter payments based on status, sort stays based on creation date, and more.

Future-focused redesign

We knew it was time to revamp our design system in order to expand our solution above and beyond our initial offerings of smart access control and Community WiFi. The new Homebase Manager is designed to keep up with present & future multifamily demands, with enough customization to meet the needs of every user.

Our future-focused redesign provides property managers with a simple and flexible platform ready to evolve with our ever-changing ways of living.


Homebase brings the smart apartment experience to new build and retrofit multifamily with trusted technology that delivers intuitive building access control with smart locks, automation of property management, new revenue with property-wide WiFi, and IoT technology amenities residents enjoy. All completely installed and managed for the multifamily innovation leaders of this decade.
