myQ Community introduces Smart Locks for each resident’s apartment. It is the most recent addition to our complete solution for all the access controls of your property. With Smart Locks, residents can seamlessly use the myQ Community app to open the door of their own apartment.

Property managers can remotely issue or revoke access credentials from the myQ Community web portal. Residents can use the myQ Community app to unlock any authorized door on the property. There is no need to rekey, which simplifies key management during changeover. Smart Locks also enable in-unit self-tours with a temporary access code that unlocks an apartment’s front door.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is smart access control? Faq arrow

Smart access control is, well, smart. Another way of saying that it’s connected to the internet. So smart access control technology is both cloud software and hardware. Here’s what you need to know about cloud software. First, the software is delivered as a service. If you use Netflix or Amazon Prime, you are subscribing to software as a service. You pay a monthly fee to use it. Think of Software as a Service (SaaS) as renting the software instead of owning it.

The benefit of SaaS is that you don’t have to set up the platform the software runs on. This means that you don’t carry fixed overhead costs like salaries for IT professionals to run and continually enhance the platform. And you don’t have to invest in security protocols to protect sensitive information and resist phishing and cyberattacks.

The other part of smart access control technology is the hardware. There are different hardware components to choose from. This is because every property has its unique set of needs. So, you can choose exactly what you need to keep your property and residents safe and nothing more.

Think of the video intercom as the base station at the entrance of the building. It can be affixed to the exterior of the building or mounted on a pedestal. The video intercom system has a speaker, microphone, and camera. Visitors use the directory touchscreen to find a tenant and enter the unit number. The resident can see who wants in and speak with the guest. If you use a video intercom with a door lock release, residents can grant access without coming downstairs — or getting off the couch.

How does smart access control technology make my job easier? Faq arrow

Automation, convenience, security, and safety are four great reasons why managers should be excited about a wireless video intercom with door lock release. But managers can also:

  • Add, update, and revoke residents’ access privileges
  • Assign groups, schedules, and zones to provide role-based access
  • Provide access remotely with the click of a button
  • Integrate with your existing property management system
  • Monitor security for one or many properties 24/7 from anywhere with your laptop or smartphone tablet
  • Use the video logs to check access point activity
  • Get real-time customized notifications, such as: door ajar or permission denied
Is wireless access control more expensive than wired solutions? Faq arrow

No. Wireless access control systems are less expensive than hardwired alternatives, particularly when the cost of conduit and copper wiring are factored in. Telecom companies are phasing out those 146-year-old copper landlines. The cost per line can be as high as $150.00 per line per month. And if copper lines need repair, the telecom company has the right to decline service unless the replacement is a 4/5G network or fiber optic cable.
