On February 16, 2023, Quext, one of the most innovative providers of smart technology solutions for the multifamily industry, announced recently that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has awarded five new patents protecting its IoT solution. The new patents bolster the company's patent portfolio and recognize the innovation and originality of Quext IoT's smart home solution.

Quext holds three patents pertaining to its Quext IoT solution. Quext and iApartments are currently involved in patent infringement litigation, with Quext alleging that the Tampa, Florida-based company infringes on the original patents. iApartments contests the validity of Quext's patents on the basis of alleged 'prior art.' Quext also filed an action with the International Trade Commission (ITC) against iApartments to prevent the importation of its white-labeled smart hubs.

The USPTO considered all of iApartments' alleged prior art when granting Quext five new patents and determined that Quext's inventive concepts are novel. Consequently, the new patents strengthen the company's patent portfolio and reaffirm the innovative nature of Quext IoT's solution. Quext utilized one of the new patents recently in a new lawsuit filed in Florida's Middle District against iApartments.

As operators themselves, the company designed its solution with operational efficiencies in mind, addressing pain points by remote lock credentialing, extending lock battery life, and reducing onsite hardware to lower maintenance calls, cost, and disruption. Quext IoT's patented solution has proven to be a thoughtful approach to smart apartment technology in multiple ways. Due to its distinctive network architecture, it is an optimal solution for both new construction and existing property retrofits of all classes.
