Hello, I’m Sean Edwards, the Founder, President, and CEO of Rittenhouse Communications Group. My journey into the world of technology began at a young age, far before the inception of this company. I still vividly remember my first foray into the tech industry, working with Tweeter, a high-end HiFi dealer. It was there, amidst the hum of cutting-edge audio-visual systems, that my passion for technology truly took root. This early exposure not only laid the foundation for my career but also instilled in me an appreciation for the power of technology to transform spaces and experiences.

More than two decades have passed since those formative years, and today, I find myself at the helm of Rittenhouse Communications Group, a testament to the journey of persistence, innovation, and the relentless pursuit of a vision. We specialize in smart building management, catering to multifamily facilities and the hospitality sector, areas that demand not only technical expertise but a genuine understanding of people’s wants and needs.

Outside of my professional endeavors, my life is filled with passions that, at first glance, may seem worlds apart from my day-to-day work. My love for boating provides me with a sense of freedom and reflection that is invaluable. Similarly, my journey through culinary school has imbued me with a unique perspective on creativity, precision, and the art of delivering exceptional experiences.

These experiences have converged to shape the philosophy behind Rittenhouse Communications Group. Just as a carefully composed dish or a successful voyage requires precise attention to detail, so too does the design and implementation of smart building solutions. Our flagship offering, PropKey, is a reflection of this philosophy. It is not just a product but a culmination of years of experience, a deep understanding of our clients’ needs, and a commitment to delivering excellence.

Unveiling PropKey: Our Answer to Modern Building Management Challenges

PropKey stands out as a pioneering solution designed to put control into the hands of property managers and residents alike. It’s not just an app; it’s a revolution in property management. With PropKey, everything from maintenance requests to unlocking doors becomes manageable from anywhere and at anytime.

A Unified Approach to Property Technology

Our expertise lies in smart technology, offering end-to-end solutions that streamline the integration of hardware and software. This unified approach ensures a convenient, single point of contact for all your building management needs. PropKey integrates innovative building features with back-of-the-house system access, granting unparalleled control over technology to enhance property management and tenant experience.

Beyond Locks: Understanding the Difference PropKey Can Make

What sets us apart is not just our technology, but how we apply it. Unlike systems that rely on Grade 2 Z-Wave consumer-grade locks requiring additional hardware, PropKey utilizes BLE locking technology. This allows for direct communication between the lock and an individual smartphone, simplifying access without the need for internet connectivity. Additionally, our app facilitates easy sharing of access for guests, enhancing security.

Our commitment to innovation extends to every aspect of the PropKey experience, from maintenance request integration to real-time data on communal space usage. This approach not only offers convenience but also insights that empower property managers to optimize amenities based on actual usage.

Bridging Community and Convenience

PropKey goes beyond functional management to foster a sense of community among residents. Features like amenity booking, a building-wide Craigslist, and social event announcements facilitate interaction and engagement. We’ve also integrated package delivery notifications and concierge requests, further enhancing the living experience for residents.

Looking Ahead: The Future of Smart Buildings with Rittenhouse Communications Group

As we continue to innovate, our goal remains clear: to transform the landscape of property management through technology that is intuitive and inclusive. With PropKey, Rittenhouse Communications Group is not just offering a product; we’re offering a new way of living and managing properties that is safer, smarter, and more connected.

For those interested in learning more about PropKey and how it can transform your property management experience, I invite you to reach out to us. Together, let’s redefine the potential of smart buildings.
