New Multihousing Access Feature Enhances Flexibility

Dec. 14, 2021
dormakaba's new Community software enables visitor access management for residents, with mobile key and PIN options.

Property managers now can put more access control management in the hands of their residents without compromising security. dormakaba’s new Community software Resident Visitor Management feature gives multihousing properties a competitive advantage by adding convenience and value-added services for residents.

With the Resident Visitor Management feature and the enhanced BlueSky mobile app, property managers can enable today’s busy residents to provide temporary access to perimeter and common areas by creating and sharing mobile keys or PIN codes. Mobile keys also can be sent for access to interior unit locks.

Residents can create and manage PIN codes, including single-use, date and time-specific use, or multiple-use access. By using the BlueSky app, residents have the flexibility to send credentials by text or email. They can use this new functionality to provide access for package and food deliveries, cleaners, visits by family and friends, dog walkers and maintenance repairs.

“The Community access management software solution is specifically developed for multihousing properties,” says Michael Kincaid, global business owner, lodging systems at dormakaba. “It meets the security and operational requirements property managers need and the convenience expectations of today’s residents for simplified access management. Residents have the flexibility they require and property managers the control they need.”

A full range of features meet the evolving multihousing access requirements, including:

  • Generation and management of PIN code and mobile key access credentials through dormakaba’s enhanced BlueSky app.
  • Advanced PIN code management, including easy Xpress PIN code for single-use visitors.
  • Centralized auditing of all common and amenity access points.
  • Resident access to visitor history.
  • Long-range reader technology support designed for easy access to parking garages, service areas and entrances.
