SmartRent optimizes building access control systems

SmartRent optimizes access control systems with the launch of Smart Intercom and Alloy Access Solo platforms. The Proptech specialist now offers intercom alongside smart apartments, building access control and self-guided tours.

SmartRent (Scottsdale, AZ), an enterprise smart home and smart building technology platform for real estate owners, managers, and residents, today unveiled its proprietary in-house intercom platform offering.

The company's new Smart Intercom can be installed on any building entry point, such as lobby doors or perimeter gates.

To further expand its access control offerings, SmartRent today also announced the launch of its Alloy Access Solo system, a single-door access control solution that can be retrofitted on virtually any door or perimeter gate using WiFi or cellular connectivity.

"Historically, the multi-family industry has been a victim of legacy access control systems that are fragmented, offline and don't integrate with property management systems," observes Mitch Karren, chief product officer of SmartRent. "The launch of Smart Intercom and Solo, along with our robust integrations, establishes SmartRent as the most versatile vendor that can retrofit aging systems into a centralized, connected platform."

Through its intercom platform, combined with expanded access control, self-guided tours and enterprise smart home technology capabilities, SmartRent says it "is poised to lead the industry in transforming apartments into connected communities."

The company says its Smart Intercom platform offers SmartRent-enabled properties an additional layer of security and accessibility to the broader apartment community. Visitors can use the device for two-way communication with residents or staff, who can unlock the door or entryway directly from their mobile device during the call.

The device can also accept credentials like PIN codes, "making access frictionless for guests, vendors and deliveries," per SmartRent. While the intercom can be deployed as a standalone product, its integration with the rest of SmartRent's product suite makes for a seamless and connected access control experience, added the company.

For its part, SmartRent's Alloy Access is a standalone perimeter and common area access control platform which now incorporates the company's Solo technology and brings it into the cloud. The Solo device decentralizes access control, which is imperative for apartment communities using self-guided touring. The integration provides a seamless transition from legacy credentials to more mobile technology, contends SmartRent.

Founded in 2017, SmartRent is an enterprise smart home and building technology platform for real estate owners, managers and residents. SmartRent's solutions provide seamless visibility and control over assets while delivering additional revenue opportunities through an all-in-one home control app for residents. The Proprietary software integrates with third-party hardware and software to provide users with one centralized platform.
