dormakaba Partners with Epproach to Include Mobile Access in the Multihousing Residents Living Experience

The 21st Century Resident Demands Greater Connectivity

Winston-Salem, NC - July 13, 2018 - dormakaba, a leader in the global market for access and security solutions, announced it has partnered with Epproach  Communications, enabling multihousing companies to provide their residents and staff with a seamless, streamlined experience via the Epproach Communique App.

Epproach, is a leading provider of scalable, high capacity WiFi, data networks and smartphone apps for multiple dwelling units including student housing, retirement and traditional apartment communities.

“Our integration with Epproach benefits property operators as well as residents, allowing us to continue to meet the rising demands for greater digitization and connectivity for our multihousing customers,” said Logan Stewart, Senior Product Manager, dormakaba.” dormakaba smart electronic locks offer the ability to grant mobile key access, allowing residents to use their smart devices as secure keys. ”With the Epproach Comminique app, residents have an all-in-one experience for many of their living needs.”

The mobile-minded resident can access their digital key within the Communique App. When approaching their door or one of the property common areas, the app will use their digital key to unlock the door via a Bluetooth Low Energy connection. In addition to accessing their apartment through the app, residents can also control smart home devices such as lights, thermostats, blinds, fans, televisions and more, saving money on energy and maintenance costs.

For property managers, this integration provides a seamless interface to control lock and resident access, communications and building management. While a property manager can manage dormakaba door locks and facility access, they can also push instant communications through the app to keep residents up-to-date with community events, package delivery notifications, maintenance requests and other alerts.
