Smart Energy: Automated Utility Transfers

Our latest app lets residents make smart energy decisions like never before while reducing hassle for your property management team – introducing Automated Utility Transfers for Multifamily.

Energy markets are becoming increasingly common across the United States. This restructuring of the energy system prevents monopolies and encourages competition. It also allows residents to decide which energy company they want to use based on factors like cost and renewable energy sources.

Properties of Homebase customers will be among the first multifamily buildings to benefit from Automated Utility Transfers . The app will prompt residents to choose their energy supplier during move-in without any action from property management teams.

Our first integration for Automated Utility Transfers is with WattBuy – a climate-first, personalized power company.

Using a property’s address, WattBuy crunches the data to recommend personalized energy bundles from the most trusted providers – automatically setting up residents with their selected plan.

Additionally, the app takes care of all compliance needs and automatically transfers utilities back to the property when residents move out.

Automated Utility Transfers are live and fully available in Homebase today. We look forward to continuing to work toward a more sustainable future.

Currently supported states: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia & Washington, DC.


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.
