Commercial real estate tech companies went head-to-head once again for Tech Tank at GlobeSt Apartments. The shark tank-style round up features emerging technology companies presenting their unique concepts to investors. This year, Tech Tank included Iotas, Salto Systems, ButterflyMX, Zerv and Starry. Each presenter was given equal time to present and answer questions from investment judges.

Apartment video intercom system ButterflyMX kicked off the panel. The system works as a digital key, package acceptance and manages security and guests. The system can operate through a resident’s smart phone for ease of use. It also keeps a timestamp of entrants to enhance security, and it stores that timestamp for 365 days. The judges asked about the security of the platform, including what information is available to people on the other end, like apartment numbers and full name. However, ButterflyMX is fully customizable, allowing users to hide personal information or even use a pseudonym.
