PENNSAUKEN TOWNSHIP, NJ – November 5, 2018 – Haddon Point is the first apartment community in the Pennsauken Township region to be outfitted with a comprehensive managed smart home solution for residents. A Delco Development property that opened in November 2018, Haddon Point has partnered with Epproach Communications to provide its residents with a state-of-the-art managed smart home solution controlled via a branded Smartphone App.
“By offering our residents the accessibility to control their Smart Home devices from our mobile App, it sets us apart from other apartment communities,” Nina Beacher, Director of Residential Development for Delco Development, said. “It also benefits our management team by keeping us connected to our vacant apartments, which helps to maintain their security, and it ensures that we are not wasting energy by controlling the thermostats remotely.”
The managed smart home solution provided by Epproach Communications consists of a wireless, multi-IoT-protocol product set controlled via a Smartphone App, branded as the Delco Development App. Using the App, residents can remotely control each product included inside the Epproach Smart Product Set. The basic Smart package implemented at Haddon Point includes remote-controlled thermostats, but residents can easily link dozens of other Smart devices to the system. Each device has the ability to be controlled via in-home voice assistants, such as Amazon’s Alexa or the Google Home. Property management can manage and monitor permissions for each resident throughout the community via Epproach’s desktop interface.
Haddon Point is providing residents with their management company’s very own branded Smartphone App, powered by Epproach Communications. The App gives residents a quick and easy interface to control their Smart Home technology inside each unit. It will also help to enhance communication between residents and staff via unified texts, emails and App notifications. The Delco Development App is available inside the Apple App or Google Play stores.
Beacher said that the ability to communicate to their residents via the App allows them to stay connected to residents at all times. “Not only can we promote events at the property, we can notify them of any updates happening within the community,” Beacher said. “This is very important for my maintenance staff, especially in the event of a storm or emergency.”
Epproach Communications is also providing a Gigabit network infrastructure to not only support the managed smart home service but also provide residents with high-speed, reliable WiFi and internet service across the community. Certified Epproach technicians installed Enterprise Grade 802.11 AC wireless access points across the community. The Epproach system provides service in individual apartments and all common areas. Residents are able to securely connect to high-speed wireless internet using a state-of-the-art managed WiFi system that is monitored and supported 24/7/365. This system gives residents the ability to connect securely across multiple devices and stream video in an instant.
“As many people know, the local cable companies charge outrageous prices for cable and internet,” Beacher said. “The market is finding that there are a lot of prospective renters who are cancelling their cable plans and opting for just wireless internet since they are streaming everything. The ability to move-in to an apartment and not have to deal with the cable companies is a huge selling feature for our community.”
The managed smart home solution, the branded Delco Development App and the managed WiFi and internet service is provided and supported 24/7/365 by Epproach Communications.
