Regenda Homes to host Internet of Things housing conference

North West social landlord Regenda Homes is to host an ‘Internet of Things’ knowledge sharing conference on the morning of May 16th at its central Liverpool offices.

The latest in the Smart Social Housing series of events, ‘Making Sense of Sensors’ will focus on the rise of the internet of things (IoT) in housing, and explore how new remote home sensor technologies are revolutionising the housing management landscape.

The event follows on from the previous sell-out Smart Social Housing event focusing on the same theme and hosted by Two Rivers Housing in November 2018.

A keynote presentation will be delivered by Ann Williams, the commissioning and contract manager at Liverpool City Council, who was named one of Inside Housing’s Tech Leaders of 2018.    

Regenda Homes’ executive director of customer services Steph Harrison feels the timing couldn’t be better for this event: “We are delighted to be hosting the Internet of Things conference at our office in Liverpool City Centre.

“Technology is changing how we work in the housing sector, from managing our assets to responding to our customers,while new and innovative products are coming to the market all of the time. 

“At Regenda Homes, we are always looking to see how technology can help us achieve our objectives and provide outstanding service to all of our customers. This event is a great chance for sector leaders to share best practice and discover how home sensor technologies can work for them.”

Smart Social Housing is sponsored by Secure Meters (UK), who launched Beanbag, its first IoT smart heat control for social landlords in 2017.

Market development manager Nigel Ebdon said: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to partner with Regenda Homes for this event – particularly after the overwhelming success of the last landlord hosted conference.

“Although Beanbag is a smart thermostat, we have future plans to develop a suite of products covering aspects ranging from health and well being to supported living.

“We see this as another valuable opportunity to discover and learn how landlords are deploying sensors in their properties.”

Content will include presentations from social housing technology thought leaders and live, practical examples of IoT applications.
