Nexkey Releases Battery-Powered Smart Door Strike
The Nexkey Solo is an all-in-one device that connects to Nexkey’s Cloud service through a user’s mobile device and installs via a cutout in the door-frame.
SAN MATEO, Calif. — Nexkey, an end-to-end provider of mobile access control solutions, announces the release of what it proclaims to be the world’s first wireless, battery-powered door strike, Nexkey Solo.
Whereas traditional access control solutions that work with wired electric strikes require a door controller, reader, and access control panel to be connected with the strike to make the whole solution work, Nexkey Solo is an all-in-one device that connects to Nexkey’s Cloud service through a user’s mobile device and installs via a simple cutout in the door-frame which a licensed locksmith or security integrator can do in a few minutes, according to the company.
Nexkey Solo, as well as Nexkey’s Core and Controller, can be unlocked via a user’s mobile phone or Apple Watch.
The versatility of the Nexkey Solo, its ease of installation and all-in low cost opens up many more opportunities for dealers and end users than traditional access control.
“Our market research has shown that 45% of businesses that currently don’t have access control would spend $200 – $1,000 per door and 36% are open to paying $6 – $10 per door per month. We’re right in that sweet spot,” says Eric Trabold, CEO of Nexkey.
Nexkey says system integrators focused on alarm and video can enter the access control space with little to no learning curve, while locksmiths that are interested in getting into access control can now get started without needing to have low-voltage skills.
“A year ago, Nexkey transformed the access control industry by launching the first solution to bring smart access capabilities to any mechanical lock through the Nexkey Core, the world’s most versatile smart cylinder. With the game-changing Nexkey Solo, we’re going a step further by totally disrupting the market for electronic door strikes, which up until now dominated the $10B access control market” adds Trabold. “Through our extremely versatile and affordable hardware we’re opening access control up to the masses, not only a select few.”
