Nexia Property Intelligence is a new multi-family access control and property management solution from Schlage, Carmel, Ind., which provides an efficient, cost-effective way to manage one or more multi-family properties from anywhere, the company described. It leverages leading access control technologies, such as smart cards, wireless access control, and modular locking systems. This innovative cloud-based solution provides operational efficiencies that simplify security for multi-resident property owners as well as managers and developers of apartments, condominiums, off-campus student housing, and retirement communities.

“The new Nexia Property Intelligence suite provides multi-family building owners and managers with a simple migration path to electronic access control and increased credential security levels. The system is designed to grow with their businesses,” said Chris DeSchamp, portfolio leader, electronic security at Ingersoll Rand.

The solution features a cloud-based platform that provides remote credential management of common areas and resident doors for multiple buildings. It can minimize property management risk, increase return on investment through more convenient controlled access to additional revenue areas (for example, laundry or vending machines), and can provide greater operation efficiency for property owners and managers, according to Schlage. With electronic access control, owners and managers will no longer need to re-key a lock whenever a resident moves or a key is lost or stolen. They can remotely add, edit or delete user credentials from their computers via the cloud.

With a click of a mouse, administrators also can set schedules and scenes such as limiting landscape maintenance workers to entering the grounds only from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.  Temporary credentials can be provided with time schedules for painters and other interim workers. Administrators can retrieve audit-trail reporting to determine who was where and when. They also can set access schedules for all common areas and facility amenities, such as pools.
