Partnership Improves Security, Safety for Building Residents

Boston – ePropertyCare, a smart-building technology company bringing Internet of Things (IoT) services into the rental and multi-housing property market, announced its partnership with BBA Management, a Greater Boston full-service property management company. The two will work together to improve security and safety for residents and avoid costly repairs by installing state-of-the-art technology into homes and multi-unit buildings.

The ePropertyCare platform operates over the cellular network and allows landlords and property managers to remotely monitor and control the property through their cell phone, thereby avoiding in-person interactions, which has been extremely useful in the age of COVID-19 and the accompanying social distancing measures.

BBA Management uses ePropertyCare’s technology in a number of properties across urban Greater Boston all the way into rural New Hampshire, ranging from single homes to 100-plus unit complexes. The features employed at these locations include water protection, video monitoring, temperature control, electronic access, smart locks and alarm systems. The water protection system monitors pipes and alerts homeowners of any leakage, offering suggestions of what the issue may be and how urgent it is.

ePropertyCare allows property managers to set one-time codes for maintenance workers to use at the set time of arrival to enter the building and make repairs. Residents and landlords do not have to be present and are put at ease knowing this single-use code will only grant the necessary temporary access.

BBA Management is working toward implementing ePropertyCare technology into all of their buildings by the end of 2021.
