New Ann Arbor Apartment Community to Provide State-of-the-Art Smart Apartment Solution for Residents

ANN ARBOR, MI / January 21, 2019 / Owl Creek Apartments, a luxury Ann Arbor-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 appThe 264-unit site, which begins opening in late Spring 2019 and is managed by Woodbury Property Management, will be one of the first apartment complexes in the Ann Arbor region outfitted with curb-to-unit smart access control for residents.


Smart apartments are the future of living,” Michael Kolb, Vice President of Woodbury Management, said. “Our objective is to provide our residents with the most contemporary amenities in their apartment home. These apartments will not only be extremely convenient, but they will cut down on energy use and provide our residents with savings and an enhanced living experience.”


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 Owl Creek Apartments App. Using the app, residents can remotely control each product included inside the Epproach Smart Product Set. The basic smart package implemented at Owl Creek 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.


The Owl Creek Apartments App is providing residents with a one-stop mobile shop to access all of their community services, as well as giving them 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 Owl Creek Apartments App will be available inside the Apple App or Google Play stores.


The Smart Apartment solution and the branded Owl Creek Apartments App is provided and supported 24/7/365 by Epproach Communications.
