In a recent blog post, “Best Smart Home Devices to Install This Fall,” Appfolio says the number one device landlords should consider installing in their rental properties is an energy monitoring device. With this new technology, landlords “can gain oversight into energy consumption and trends.” Appfolio further notes that this information will help landlords, “spot and address energy hogs to lower your association’s energy output and bills.” If you are interested in energy monitoring devices, we researched three of the most popular ones available on Amazon:
