Think of OPEN as a virtual security guard which streamlines access management to complexes. Using OPENintercom technology, a visitor simply phones the communities number, and if the host successfully grants access – a unique pin code is sent by SMS to the visitor which they then type into the keypad to gain access.
The pin codes are not stored on the keypad and are unique to each user, granting access only at a time of day specified by the manager. This can be on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis, with the option of revoking access with immediate effect.
Community residents can also simply add a guest through the app before they arrive, which will also provide a unique pincode to the visitor.
Upon exiting the community, visitors simply use the same pincode, which allows community managers to see which guest are still on the property.
The benefits of OPEN include:
- saving money from high service costs
- no need for monthly landline rentals or contracts
- eliminating the security risk of lost remotes
- allowing the complex manager to track which guests enter, and when they leave
Another big plus to the OPENkeypad system is that residents and visitors don’t need to have the app to gain access to the complex.
Note: OPENintercom is currently in Beta Testing – mail us to sign-up to become one of the first communities to make use of this convenient technology.
