In today’s fast-paced world, people are always trying to find ways to make life simpler, and tasks easier. That’s why Lewis Apartment Communities has added bits of extra comfort and convenience into each of their newest communities. Take a peek inside how Lewis is making their resident’s day-to-day lives a little easier with smart-home gadgets. *
In recent years, many have switched to smart thermostats to adjust their heating and cooling systems. Not only do these systems look more sophisticated than their non-smart counterparts, but they offer more in terms of efficiency and convenience. Better still, they can help you save on heating and cooling costs. Many of these systems even learn your preferences and automatically adjust accordingly.
Smart thermostats also allow remote control of the temperature within your home. It’s as simple as downloading the app.
Ring doorbells are the latest in simple home surveillance. Not only can you see, hear and speak to those at the front door from anywhere, but you can set up real-time notifications on your phone or tablet, customize your motion settings, and detect motion and record video when people come to your door.
Electric Vehicle Ports
With electric vehicles becoming more and more prominent, it’s imperative that charging stations be more readily available. In their newest communities*, Lewis Apartment Communities has gone a step above and included level-2, or 220-volt charging outlets in every attached garage.
220-volt outlets are the quickest way to charge any electric vehicle and now you can have your very own.
Amazon Echo Spot
A compact 2.5″, the Echo Spot is a small, easy way to make your home smarter. The Santa Barbara in Chino Hills apartments each come equipped with an Alexa ready Echo Spot. You can easily manage your day, check the weather or traffic and use voice controls to play music, make phone calls or even ask Alexa to find recipes, control lights, and show your Ring doorbell camera.
24-Hour Self-Serve Parcel Lockers
As online shopping and sites like Amazon become the predominant way to shop, package delivery and security are also evolving. That’s why Lewis Apartment Communities has added secure parcel locker mailboxes to help keep resident deliveries safe. These multi-sized lockers are made from 12-gauge, heavy-duty metal that is corrosion resistant to keep packages dry and secure. They’re made with internal, tamper-proof hinges and have 24-hour video surveillance, so you feel confident that your packages are secure.
WIFI Garage Doors
The garage is more than just a place to park your car – it’s often as a main entry point as well. Now you can make your daily routine that much easier and never worry if you left the garage open again with a WIFI garage door opener. Control your garage door from anywhere, receive activity notifications, set schedules, turns lights on, and more.
WIFI at Pools*
Whether you love to read, surf the internet, or chill to your tunes, you can do any and all of them while lounging by the pool. Nearly all new Lewis Apartment Communities have extended WIFI signal in their pool areas so you can work, play or both while relaxing poolside.
Paying rent is an essential part of apartment living, but paying online from the convenience of your home makes it that much less of a hassle. That’s just one convenience the resident portal, Active Building, provides for Lewis residents. Residents can submit maintenance requests, get guest parking passes, track package deliveries, and connect with other members of the community and stay up to date on local events. Log in today!
Nearly all gadgets these days require USB charging station and there’s no shortage of places to plug in at the Santa Barbara apartments in Chino Hills. Equipped with USB wall outlets, you’ll never have to use an adaptor or clutter regular outlets to recharge your tablet, smartphone, or other gadgets.
