ProdataKey Partners With Dwelo for Smart Cloud Access Control Integration

Dwelo’s web and mobile software offers apartment dwellers the ability to control smart devices such as light switches, thermostats and door deadbolts for their individual units.

SOUTH JORDAN, Utah — ProdataKey (PDK), a provider of Cloud-based networked and wireless access control products and services, and Dwelo, a provider of smart home solutions purpose-built for apartment owners, managers and residents, announce they have partnered to integrate PDK’s Cloud access control technology into the Dwelo smart apartment platform.

Dwelo’s web and mobile software offers apartment dwellers the ability to control smart devices such as light switches, thermostats and door deadbolts for their individual units.

The platform also allows access to common areas of their building or community, such as entry gates, clubhouse, gym and laundry facilities, which can now be secured by PDK’s Cloud access control solution, pdk.io, through the integration.

The administrative software interface, not visible to residents, enables management to establish and enforce authorized hours of use for common facilities, according to the company.

An audit trail reports all traffic into the property, including any one-time credentials issued by residents, which can be used to assist in investigations in cases of theft or vandalism. When residents move out, their access to unit, common and perimeter access is immediately deactivated, eliminating the risks that accompany traditional keys that would otherwise remain in circulation, according to the company.

“PDK’s solution has been embraced by customers in the commercial sector for its simple ease of use and platform flexibility. Our wireless and PoE options allow for cost-effective takeover of legacy equipment, while supporting new construction projects with all the benefits derived from leveraging the network. Our mantra, simplicity without compromise, dovetails perfectly with Dwelo’s corporate mission to enhance apartment living through easily accessible IoT technology,” says Evan Tree, CEO of ProdataKey.

Beyond operational efficiencies, residents can unlock perimeter and common doors or gates using the same mobile app they use to control their apartments. In addition, they have the ability to use their phones or computers to generate temporary, one-time credentials that allow visitors, delivery and service people to gain access as needed.

The Dwelo/PDK solution is available for both new construction and retrofits. After an initial per-unit installation charge, the system is subscription based, with property managers able to recoup the cost in both efficiencies and enhanced revenue, according to the company.

“The consolidation of smart home control and perimeter and common area access control, in one platform, is a powerful marriage for multifamily property owners. We look forward, with PDK, to crafting more solutions that address the specific needs of these customers,” says Mike Rovito, CEO of Dwelo.
