Managed Smart Home Solutions for Apartment Communities

Epproach Communications is one of the first companies in the country to provide Managed Smart Home capabilities to apartment communities. We’re old pros at Managed WiFi, which makes us uniquely qualified to provide wirelessly connected features to hundreds of residents in large apartment communities. This brand new, state-of-the-art amenity can give your community the competitive edge it needs to compete in a crowded field.

A New Amenity for the Digital Age.

Our Managed Smart Home capabilities give residents an amenity that they’ve yet to know they need: control of their apartment unit from the palm of their hand. Residents can remotely control their smart devices through our state-of-the-art Epproach App (which can be branded as your company’s own). With one touch, residents can power on their lights, lock their doors, or set their thermostat – from anywhere and at anytime. In a world that is now connected more than ever, this added level of connectivity and control will be an amenity only the Digital Age – and Epproach – can provide.

Smart Control for Property Management

Epproach provides an easy-to-use smart management system for property management. Residents are entered into the system via a batch upload. Property management can view and control all aspects of the system.

Manage Permissions.

Property management can enable or disable each product inside a resident’s unit. Plus: with the Epproach Managed WiFi Solution, property management can also activate or deactivate a resident’s WiFi permissions.

Vacate a Unit. 

In need of a simple, quick solution for resident move-outs? Look no further – with the Vacate feature, property management can simply click a button to power down a unit’s lights, reset the thermostat and lock the doors. It streamlines the often chaotic moving-out process into one easy step.
