Key Fobs Replace Keys

Toronto Condo News
Publication date:

Article Summary: 

Key locks have been popular since people became uncomfortable leaving their doors unlocked, and keyless entry systems have become standard in high-rise condo communities. Mechanical keys are being eliminated due to difficulty in tracking them and ease of duplication by unauthorized individuals. Keyless systems allow management to know who has entered the building, when entry occurred, and which secure areas have been accessed. Each keyless fob is unique to the individual, and each system can maintain a log of when and where each fob is used. Keyless systems are digital fingerprints that can be used to identify who accesses areas of a building and can be used by management or law enforcement to solve crimes.

Integrated WiFi systems allow lights or heating systems to automatically adjust when someone enters an area, and keyless locks can deny access to anyone when the area is closed. Visitors or service contractors can be provided with a fob granting access to certain areas, and if not returned or lost, a fob can be deactivated. Keyless systems have improved security in condo communities while saving time and money.
