Platform Increases Safety in Affordable Housing Developments

Boston – ePropertyCare, a technology company bringing smart building solutions into the rental and multi-housing property market, announced its partnership with Capstone Communities.

Through the partnership, ePropertyCare is installing its building protection and automation solution in Capstone’s newest affordable housing developments to increase resident, landlord and contractor safety during the ongoing pandemic.

ePropertyCare technology is being deployed in Capstone’s Frost Terrace at 1791 Mass Ave, Cambridge, Mass., a 40-unit affordable housing development; the McElwain School in Bridgewater, Mass., a 57-unit complex almost entirely comprised of affordable housing; and Capstones’s new proposed 49-unit affordable housing property at 2072 Mass Ave, Cambridge, Mass.

The ePropertyCare platform allows landlords and property managers to remotely protect, monitor and control properties over the cellular network without requiring building WiFi. This has the added benefit of minimizing in-person interactions that can spread COVID-19.

“Our technology provided an array of benefits that was celebrated by property managers and developers pre-pandemic, but remote offerings are in even higher demand in the age of COVID,” said ePropertyCare co-founder and CEO, Charles Hadsell. “We give our customers the ability to protect, monitor and control their property from afar, and it is an advantage that is embraced in the current environment as everyone works to decrease the likelihood of coronavirus transmission.”
