New dormakaba Lyazon Platform Integrates into Resident Smart Home App

March 29, 2023
Cloud-based API evolves multifamily smart locks to seamless access experience

INDIANAPOLIS – Multifamily properties are complex and evolving ecosystems which can make managing access a challenge. dormakaba’s Lyazon is a cloud-based API driven platform that integrates with a wide range of third-party systems and solutions to provide full and fluid control over every access point.

Lyazon is an open architecture platform that does not have a user interface. It enables integration partners to manage dormakaba compatible access devices via the cloud, and through their user mobile or web interfaces. It integrates with solutions for smart home automation, energy management, resident portal apps, and more.

 “Supporting the evolving technology portfolio of today’s multifamily properties is critical,” said Bret Holbrook, senior vice president, sales at dormakaba Region Americas. “Lyazon adapts to the constantly changing needs of today’s multifamily property managers, and meets the lifestyle demands of residents. It’s simple and efficient. Residents can grant temporary and recurring access to delivery services, cleaning staff, dog walkers, and guests. Property managers can grant access to residents, staff, contractors, and maintenance teams.”

Specific features include:

Built for Integration. Lyazon is built on the industry standard and proven REST API. Lyazon provides development tools through a sandbox environment where partners can better understand dormakaba’s API before deployment.

Cloud-Based. Lyazon offers cloud-based access to all API requests. Access management of the property, residents, staff, and vendors can be managed remotely. Lyazon leverages Amazon Web Services (AWS) for superior reliability and performance.

Flexible Integration. The Lyazon cloud API supports a multifamily property’s evolving portfolio. dormakaba provides both Wi-Fi and wired access control hardware that is easy to configure into appropriately structured property management systems. dormakaba’s Saffire EVO Series locks connect directly to Wi-Fi, eliminating the need for additional dedicated cabling and associated hardware.

Support for Mobile, RFID, and PIN Credentials. The Lyazon solution offers the security of end-to-end encrypted mobile, DESFire EV3 RFID, and 6-digit PIN credential access for a secure, seamless technology experience.

Real-Time Events. All Lyazon access devices use an Internet connection to synchronize real-time events to the Lyazon cloud. Users can subscribe to or query these events for a complete view of how the system is operating.

Remote Firmware Updates. The Saffire EVO Wi-Fi connected locks can receive feature and security updates through auto-generated remote communication.

Functional during Power Outages. During a power outage, the Saffire EVO locks will continue to accept RFID, PIN, and mobile credentials that have already been programmed into the lock and store all the events. When the power and Wi-Fi is restored, the lock will synchronize the stored events back to the cloud.

Personal Data Secure. Lyazon does not store any resident personal data. dormakaba’s cloud-based API is designed to allow partners to associate a credential with permissions to an access device, without requiring any personal data. For more information, visit
