Entrata to Elevate Smart Home Offering with Samsung SmartThings Integration

Lehi, Utah — Multifamily and student housing technology provider Entrata has announced a full integration with Samsung SmartThings. The integration will provide property teams with access to appliance preventative maintenance and diagnostic information through the company’s Entratamation Smart Community Overview, and allow residents app-based control of Samsung smart appliances through Entrata’s ResidentPortal app.

Residents currently use the ResidentPortal app to control smart locks, thermostats and additional smart home features. Following the SmartThings integration, property teams can give residents the ability to adjust settings on Samsung refrigerators, washers and dryers, dishwashers and ovens. This includes the ability to remotely control refrigerator and freezer temperatures and initiate washing/drying machine cycles; immediate notification if the door to their refrigerator is accidentally left open; and the ability monitor cooking progress and adjust oven temperature.

“This is a giant step in our ambition to make ResidentPortal the most comprehensive, one-stop option for complete smart home control for residents,” says Chase Harrington, president and COO of the Lehi, Utah-based company. “We have had regular conversations with Samsung about ways to push the resident experience forward while concurrently assisting property teams, and we’re extremely excited to collaborate with their team on this integration.”
