Mixed-use communities require flexibility and customization to meet the needs of various user types. Ensure security for residents and commercial tenants with complete control of access in every space.
How it works
With Homebase, you can give residents accurate access to their assigned spaces along with control to their smart devices.
Reliable WiFi that’s easy to manage
Deliver seamless building-wide WiFi for residents and commercial tenants alike. A combination of private networks in units and commercial spaces and guest networks in common areas ensures security for all. With Homebase Managed WiFi, you become the Internet Service Provider and benefit from new revenue while also cutting costs for residents.
Flexible and secure building access
Our smart access system makes it easy to ensure that the right people have access to the right spaces. Grant commercial tenants access to amenity spaces and use mobile access to upgrade security. With Homebase, you can send, revoke, or adjust access from anywhere and monitor guests with our simple visitor management system.
It can be a lot of work to manage a mixed-use space, so we provide features that simplify the process. Automations for thermostats and light switches reduce wasted energy while property management software integrations save time.

Terrace on Walnut
Due to the absence of on-site staff, Homebase retrofitted the mixed-use community of Terrace on Walnut with Smart Access Control customized for remote management capabilities like self-guided tours, self move-ins, access management, and unit turns.
The success of this partnership increased property value, decreased operating cost, bolstered the recent resale value of Terrace on Walnut, and led to additional projects with the commercial tenant, Big Brothers Big Sisters.
“Homebase has made life in property management so much easier! We have eliminated the need to make an extra trip when someone is locked out, and the residents love the ease of using their phones to unlock the door.”Anna HickokVP of Operations
Frequently asked questions
How do you manage security?
Homebase Web Manager is a centralized platform to control access throughout the building. It makes it easy to add or remove residents or commercial tenant employees. We recommend the mobile access app as a first choice for residents and key fobs as a back up. If a phone gets stolen, it is password protected. When a resident logs into a different device, their last session is logged out immediately — instantly disabling their old device.
How do you manage commercial tenant employees?
We recommend that commercial tenant employees unlock doors with the mobile access app. This maintains security when there is staff turnover. Since no keys are exchanged, access can be revoked remotely. Many mixed-use properties choose to give commercial tenants and their employees access to amenity spaces as an additional perk.
How do you keep WiFi networks secure?
Homebase Managed WiFi provides secure, private networks for each apartment. This is safer than Bulk WiFi, which creates a single shared WiFi network that all residents can access. We even handle customer service, maintenance, and repairs so property managers can focus on their core operations while providing residents with a reliable internet connection.
