There’s a new access control system juggernaut on the market, a technology known as Latch. It’s estimated that today, 1 in 10 of the new apartment buildings being built in the United States are being outfit with Latch, the world’s first smart access control system. Nonstop Locksmith and Security Solutions is proud to stay ahead of the game in offering the latest and greatest access control solutions to residential and commercial clients of all sizes, and are proud to be licensed installers of the Latch Access Control system. In this blog post, the access control experts at Nonstop Locksmith and Security Solutions will give you some information about the Latch Access Control system, and detail the security advantages that Latch provides home, business, and apartment complex owners.
What is Latch?
Latch is the world’s first smart access control system that allows access to users through a dedicated application, a typed door code, or a keycard. Offering an ideal system simplified between three products, Latch has revolutionized the access control game with devices built to work on every single door in a building. Latch sells their ‘R Series’, a smart access control system designed for building entrances, common areas, elevators, and garage gates – as well as the ‘M Series’ – a handled smart lock designed for apartment entry doors, and the ‘C Series’ – a handle-less access control solution also for apartment entry doors. With design in mind, the creators of Latch have crafted an attractive, aesthetically pleasing, minimal, functional, and futuristic smart access control solution that can be easily installed by Nonstop’s expert technicians on all types of doors at your property. Latch provides the possibility for users to seamlessly open their doors with their smartphones through the Latch Application, and for building managers to help manage doors digitally through the computer based Latch Manager program – for ideal levels of control and management. Built with security in mind, Latch’s software is strong and protected against hacking and cyber crime, and allow for full customization and user convenience, with the potential for temporary guest tokens to be issued – ideal for secure deliveries, letting guests in, and much more!
Latch Benefits for Homeowners
Latch offers residents the advantage of unlocking their doors incredibly simply. The technology allows users to manage who can access their space, and when – with easy access sharing between friends, family, and guests. Each resident of a Latch enabled property will be provided with an application to use on their iOS or Android enabled smartphone – and a personal door code in turn that they can either enter directly on the touchscreen of the Latch device itself, or through a smart NFC key card. This has the advantage of eliminating the security concerns associated with physical keys; never again will you be locked outside of your apartment because of a lost key, or have to be concerned over the security risks of some criminal finding your key and gaining access to your property. All sorts of regular day to day activities are made simpler through Latch – from allowing dog walkers or cleaners into your apartment, to letting out-of-town houseguests in even when you are at work or not home through temporary codes.
Latch Benefits for Building Operators
Latch provides fantastic benefits for building operators and apartment managers, making the process of new tenants much more efficient by getting rid of the stress of key issuing during the leasing process. Never again will apartment managers have to worry about only being able to schedule maintenance operations when a resident is home – simply get permission from the resident, and allow the maintenance person in through the Latch application. When residents are locked out for any reason, building managers can simply open their door from a distance. And very importantly, their will be no need to ever mechanically rekey locks for security concerns when a resident moves – simply change the keycode on the Latch device, and the new tenant can rest easy in knowing that only they truly have access to their apartment. Deliveries are made easy – with delivery people gaining regulated access to the building through the Latch application – and both property managers and tenants will never again have to worry about strangers wandering into their building and stealing packages from the lobby.
