Digital Door Lock for residences is a potential market in Malaysia
1. Multiple, customizable user permission levels
Smart locks built for single-family homes have limited and unchangeable permission levels. Multifamily properties need smart locks with multiple, flexible permission levels to unleash their full potential
Unlike single-family homes, multifamily buildings need at least three different permission levels for their smart locks: The landlord or management staff, the resident, and third party service vendors. Management is a little different at each property, so customizable permission levels are a must.
2. Temporary digital keys
Residents love the convenience of temporary digital keys and the peace of mind that comes with knowing who has entered their apartment and when. For property managers, e-keys make maintenance calls easier. Instead of picking up a physical key from the maintenance office, staff can remotely access units to fulfill work orders, saving time and money for the property.
Temporary digital keys also prove the need for multiple permission levels. Single family smart locks might allow residents to create keys, but it’s critical (and the law) for property managers to have access to units as well.
3. Integration With Access Control System
4. Fire Code Rating
Multifamily properties are held to a different safety standard than single family homes, especially for fire safety. Smart locks must meet the same fire safety requirements as other building materials. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen.
Building materials used in multifamily construction– including walls, doors, and locks– must receive a fire resistance rating from an objective research group like Bomba Certification in Malaysia. Fire resistance rating is defined by how long a material can survive against direct flames.
Many smart locks, even those regularly used in multifamily properties, do not meet the fire safety requirements in most states. This is not only a safety issue, but a regulatory concern depending on your state building code. Make sure the smart lock you choose meets your area’s fire code.
