ePropertyCare, a technology company bringing smart building solutions into the rental and multi-housing property market, today announced its partnership with Capstone Communities. Through the partnership, ePropertyCare is installing its building protection and automation solution in Capstone’s newest affordable housing developments to increase resident, landlord and contractor safety during the ongoing pandemic. The ePropertyCare platform allows landlords and property managers to remotely protect, monitor and control properties over the cellular network without requiring building WiFi. This has the added benefit of minimizing in-person interactions that can spread COVID-19.
ePropertyCare provides remote services for security, access control, video, water leak protection, temperature monitoring and more for large multi-dwelling units. The technology also facilitates contactless repairs and maintenance with smart locks, allowing property managers to create limited-use codes for contractors to perform ‘no contact’ repairs. Additionally, property managers can receive alerts if water leaks or temperature extremes are detected, thereby getting ahead of maintenance issues before damage occurs, better protecting the building and reducing time for repairs. This also allows vacant units in apartment complexes to be protected in case someone moved away during COVID, ensuring remaining neighbors are not impacted.
“Our technology provided an array of benefits that was celebrated by property managers and developers pre-pandemic, but remote offerings are in even higher demand in the age of COVID,” said ePropertyCare Co-Founder and CEO, Charles Hadsell. “We give our customers the ability to protect, monitor and control their property from afar, and it is an advantage that is embraced in the current environment as everyone works to decrease the likelihood of coronavirus transmission.”
ePropertyCare technology is being deployed in Capstone’s Frost Terrace at 1791 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA, a 40-unit affordable housing development, the McElwain School in Bridgewater, MA, a 57-unit complex almost entirely comprised of affordable housing, and Capstones’s new proposed 49-unit affordable housing property at 2072 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA.
“We are excited to implement ePropertyCare’s technology in our buildings to improve the experience for our residents and streamline building operations,” said Jason Korb, Principal, of Capstone Communities LLC. “Smart Building amenities are becoming table stakes for modern projects and we’re excited to bring this technology into the affordable housing market.”
ePropertyCare provides smart building solutions for landlords, developers and property managers, supporting deployments ranging from single-unit up to 1000+ units. ePropertyCare integrates with major property management software companies to fully automate key landlord use-cases for work orders, move-in / move-out and remote showings. ePropertyCare water protection solutions can lead to insurance savings.
