CHARLOTTE, NC – January 9, 2018 – Riverbend Apartments, a luxury Charlotte-based apartment community, is partnering with Epproach Communications to provide its residents with a state-of-the-art Smart Apartment solution controlled via a branded smartphone app. The site, which opens in Spring 2019 and is managed by Brown Investment Properties, will be one of the first apartment complexes in the Charlotte region outfitted with curb-to-unit smart access control for residents.
“Our goal is to have the most modern and up-to-date features for our apartments,” Lance Ramsey, developer of Riverbend, said. “The smart home features not only help our residents cut down on their energy expenses, but also provides them with the most convenient style of living.”
The Smart Apartment solution provided by Epproach Communications will help to increase resident and staff efficiencies for the community. It consists of a wireless, multi-IoT-protocol product set controlled via a smartphone app, branded as the Riverbend App. Using the app, residents can remotely control each product included inside the Epproach Smart Product Set. The basic smart package implemented at Riverbend includes remote-controlled door locks and 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.
Riverbend Apartments is providing residents with the property’s very own branded smartphone app, giving residents a quick and easy interface to control their smart home technology inside each unit. The app will also help to enhance communication between residents and staff via unified texts, emails and app notifications. The new Riverbend App is available inside the Apple App or Google Play stores.
The Smart Apartment solution and the branded Riverbend App is provided and supported 24/7/365 by Epproach Communications.
