Blending the convenience of downtown living with the privacy of suburbia, the Mill at Riverside by Kokes Properties is a new, 190-unit, luxury development located in downtown Riverside, New Jersey.
The property features 2-bedroom townhomes and 1- and 2-bedroom apartments plus a state-of-the-art 3,000 sq. ft. clubhouse with free Wi-Fi, resident lounge, package delivery room, and fitness center.
As a leading property developer in the area, Kokes Properties recognized that managing occupant and visitor access tends to be resource-intensive, particularly in multi-residential properties. Traditional locksets and keys get misplaced or copied, leaving occupants inconvenienced and possibly unsafe. Additionally, to echo the sophisticated design of the property, the company wanted to implement a more modern, streamlined approach to access control.
CM3 designed and installed a state-of-the-art access control and video surveillance system, including more than 200 wireless locks, 22 hardwired doors, 40 video surveillance cameras, and a cloud-based door entry intercom system that allows for communication between the visitor and tenant via their mobile device.
Of particular interest is the Identicard PremiSys access control system & Resident Manager app which take advantage of Schlage’s No Tour functionality to provide access control solution using wireless locks and traditional access control hardwired card readers. This provides a cost-effective solution that simplifies management of the system with a single user interface for access control device management and eliminates headaches and cost associated with traditional locksets and keys. To enhance the system and add future capabilities, all card readers and wireless locks are mobile-ready and able to use Schlage’s mobile credential in the future.
