NEW YORK and SOUTH ORANGE, N.J.—Latch, Inc., maker of LatchOS, the full-building enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, has announced the completion of the first installation of Latch-powered Marks USA ArchiTech Series Networx Locks at Meridia Living’s Meridia Village Commons in South Orange, NJ.

“This first installation with Marks USA is a milestone in accelerating Latch’s vision to make it easier for customers to deliver the best resident experience,” says Jamie Siminoff, incoming CEO, Latch.

Latch SaaS Platform Offers a new Access Control Solution

This integration merges Latch’s app experience and Latch Lens with a vast array of customizable architectural door hardware from Marks USA, a division of NAPCO Security Technologies. The new SaaS platform developer says its Latch app enables authorized users and residents to unlock the door in whatever manner they choose, such as with an iOS or Android device, Apple Watch, keycard, or door code, for unparalleled convenience and flexibility.

“Working with Latch, we are able to deliver a modern, elevated access control experience to our customers and their end users, aesthetically matching Marks door locks inside and outside the building,” notes Stephen Spinelli, SVP of Sales at NAPCO.

“We are thrilled to complete our first installation together and look forward to bringing this more fluid user experience to more spaces and residents, teaming the considerable strengths of Latch’s access control and property management technology with Marks USA Custom Locking.”

The SaaS company points out that Meridia Living, along with the SaaS company’s installation partner Protection Technologies, helped make this project possible. In addition to managing the installation process, the access control solutions provider continues, Protection Technologies was instrumental in the design, servicing, and support for this project.

“Delivering the best possible living experience is always our primary goal,” comments Brian J. Pfistner, CCIM, chief asset officer at Meridia Living.

“By partnering with Latch and Marks USA on this project, we were able to do just that, offering the latest technology and increased flexibility to suit the needs and lifestyle of each individual resident.”

The Madison, Wisc.-based dealer says the partnership between the companies worked really well and looking ahead it is excited about future projects.

“We are honored to support Latch and Marks USA on this installation to provide high-quality, reliable access control to the residents of Meridia Village Commons,” adds Mike Singer, president at Protection Technologies.
