Kleard, an award-winning real estate tech company that provides self-tour technology (called Kleard Now), has partnered with Kangaroo Home Security to make self-touring real estate safer, more secure, and helps promote COVID social distancing. Property access works via the Kleard app (available on iOS and Android).
The partnership between Kleard and Kangaroo will allow agents the ability to purchase a unique home security package created specifically for real estate listings with a starting price of only $64.99. The two package options will include a combination of a doorbell camera, door/motion sensors, and an indoor camera.
Smart home technology
Installation is simple, fast, and is done via the Kangaroo app. In-app notifications will inform agents when buyers arrive, when doors are opened, closed, when motion inside the home is detected, and will capture images and video to give agents visual updates when motion is detected. This helps make self-tours using Kleard safer and increases peace-of-mind. With Kangaroo's optional complete plan (1 month is included free), professional monitoring and premium features can be included.
Kangaroo's smart home technology was designed to be affordable, extremely easy to set up"
Dhruv Garg, Co-Founder and President of Kangaroo, says, "Kangaroo's smart home technology was designed to be affordable, extremely easy to set up, and respectful of user data and privacy. In partnering with Kleard, we are able to extend these core principles into action to enable more secure self-tour events and complete visibility of listed properties for agents - peace of mind for all parties involved."
Powerful home security
Kleard Now can be used by any licensed real estate agent on their listings in the U.S. The technology reduces friction and allows homes to be toured easily by verified buyers. Kleard requires that all self-tour requests be approved by the listing agent and is done via the app. Buyers simply download the app to find self-tour enabled homes. Social distancing is becoming normalised and with innovative Kleard's self-tour technology, buyers and agents can feel better knowing that homes can be toured without the need to meet in person.
"We're excited to partner with Kangaroo. We love that their home security devices are easy to set up and affordable. With this new partnership, agents will be able to add powerful home security to all their listings that have Wi-Fi and will make homes that are self-tour enabled more secure," says Jonathan Martis, Kleard CEO and Co-founder. Both Kleard and Kangaroo are National Association of Realtors (NAR) Reach® Companies, created by Second Century Ventures, the strategic investment arm of NAR.
