Smart Locks to Control Access from Your Phone

The smart lock device replaces the traditional mechanism with the freedom to be a remote gatekeeper. We have many different smart lock systems that can be used for houses, condos, or commercial buildings.

Remote and automated smart lock security (Residential & Commercial)

Using your app, you can control your smart lock system to lock and unlock a door from anywhere in the world. If someone’s locked out and forgot their code, you can grant them access without meeting in person.

You can also set rules for your smart lock like automatically send you a reminder to lock if your phone exits the home or office, or have the security system arm whenever your last employee leaves for the day.

Advanced access management

Your smart lock security app lets you set permissions for individuals at specific times. This ensures people only have access to places they’re supposed to be and stops them from entering after hours. You can add or remove rules as security levels change.

For visitors or tradespeople to your office or home, you can give guests temporary access codes that expire when they leave. This will make them feel independent and welcome, and it will remove the hassle of having to be there to let people in and out. You can disable their codes at any time and never worry about changing locks or replacing lost keys.

Landlords have started using this to grant a tenant access for as long as they need without interacting in person. The codes can be deleted when the tenant moves out.

Property monitoring with a smart lock technology

Since each person has a unique code and/or unique card, you’ll know who’s accessing any part of the building at a given time. Use this to monitor for an unusual activity like a child sneaking in late or an employee regularly sticking around after dark. The smart lock security system can send you real-time alerts when someone is using their code at a strange time or unsuccessfully trying to enter prohibited areas.

Access monitoring also gives you valuable data about your property. Learn more about the flow of people within your business and find inefficiencies. You may notice some employees requiring more permissions and others that don’t utilize the ones they have.

Smart Locks = Simplified security

Smart locks easily integrate with your current system so you can introduce it in stages: try it with your front door and extend it to other main access points at your pace. You’ll eliminate the need to manage an assortment of keys between multiple employees with different clearance levels and avoid the vulnerabilities of reprogrammable cards.
