How the E-Genius Interconnect Electronic Lock is 

a Game-Changer to Multi-Housing Security and Management



Houses and condos have enjoyed keyless locking solutions for years. Now, this exclusivity is extending to multi-housing communities with the increased demand from property managers seeking advanced security management of their buildings.

Findings of 2017 survey*:

  • 86% of millennials were willing to pay ~20% more for smart apartment features, including automated or controlled systems, specifically smart locks.
  • 61% of Gen Y were more likely to rent an apartment with a keyless entry smart lock.
  • 55% of Gen Y said they would also be willing to pay more for high-tech door locks.

Electronic door locks are making entry and egress control easy while keeping the premises very secure for residents. Importantly, multi-housing solutions using electronic locks deliver essential reporting capabilities to support the overall physical security and efficient management of the complex. Time and money, for example, are saved when residents move out and keep the keys. No need for costly lock maintenance calls. Also, simply program a new keycard, and cleaners, painters, maintenance staff, etc., have the necessary access.
