Property management tech startup Carson Living has announced a $3 million seed funding round for its platform, which provides services to unstaffed residential buildings.

BuildingLink, a New York-based web-platform for property management, led the round. Jerry Kestenbaum, founder of BuildingLink, said that Carson is a “perfectly targeted solution” for the residential portal space.

The startup, founded in 2017 by Guy Blachman, provides a mobile application that connects to a front door panel, and allows residents to view in-building cameras, make payments and receive deliveries.

The startup has now raised $4 million in total. To streamline its services, it has partnered with Comelit, an intercom provider, and SMARTAir, an electronic key provider for multifamily properties.

Blachman’s previous startup, ActiveBuilding/MyBuilding was acquired by RealPage in 2013.

The biggest tech player in the virtual doorman/property management space, Latch, in August raised $70 million in a Series B funding round led by Brookfield Ventures. At the time, Latch was valued at more than $250 million.
