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 Titan Insurance, a Boston-based independent insurance agency offering a comprehensive suite of personal and business insurance solutions.
Through the partnership, Titan will promote the ePropertyCare water protection solution to existing and potential clients in order to minimize the risk and costs associated with water damage, resulting in credits that will reduce insurance premiums.
The ePropertyCare platform operates over the cellular network and allows landlords and property managers to remotely monitor and control the property using 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. The water protection system includes point water sensors near high-risk areas such as water heaters and washing machines, and an integrated water flow meter + shut off valve on the water main that monitors water flow rate, alerting property owners of any leakage or proactively shutting off the water supply. Additional platform features include video monitoring, temperature control, electronic access, smart locks and alarm systems.
Additionally, 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.
