Advenir Living is a Miami-based, full service real estate company with a primary focus on multi-family apartment communities. Two of its many properties include Advenir at Biscayne Shores, a North Miami community of 240 units, and Advenir Polos East, a 308-unit community in East Orlando. Both properties offer apartment residents exclusive access to modern, luxurious amenities, including a fitness center, pool and club house.
Biscayne Shores was using an outdated key fob system that was no longer working the property manager. They recognized that with fobs, there is the possibility of residents not only losing them, but also of loaning them to non-residents. Biscayne Shores is not a gated community, and property managers have responsibility to ensure that unwanted guests do not have access to their amenities.
Similarly, at Polos East, the property manager was working with an outdated card reader system that was not allowing her to add new users or modify access schedules. What’s more, the system was so outdated, it could no longer be updated. They wanted to avoid getting to the point of monitoring the grounds and facilities to be certain they didn’t have unauthorized visitors. It was also important to make sure that locks to the doors of resident-only amenities like they gym could not be popped, making it possible for visitors from outside the community to potentially enter and use them.
A VIZpin system was installed and now only residents whose names are on the lease are authorized to have access. It has eliminated non-resident teen use and also curbed access by other unauthorized gests and unsupervised children.
Controlled Access – VIZpin ensures only residents have access to properties and facilities and eliminates entry by outsiders and minors.
Added Revenue – Thanks to VIZpin access requests, property managers can discover residents whose names do not appear on leases, update leases and collect additional application fees.
Affordability – Both Biscayne Shores and Polo East had systems that were outdated, non-functioning and costly to upgrade. VIZpin provided an affordable solution with a simple transition process that was well-received by residents.
