ProdataKey, InvictusXP Partnership Creates All-in-One Security Ecosystem for MDUs

The integration of ProdataKey Cloud-based technologies and the InvictusXP security platform provides a number of convenience features to building residents and property managers.

DRAPER, Utah — ProdataKey (PDK), a manufacturer of Cloud access control solutions for mobile applications, and InvictusXP, a developer of a community technology platform for residents and building managers, have joined forces to create an all-in-one mobile solution for multi-tenant properties.

The companies state that residents, guests and visitors can now interact with PDK access control readers throughout their buildings using the same InvictusXP mobile app they use for community notifications, virtual concierge services, visitor video intercom communications, and other conveniences.

PDK mobile credentials within the Invictus app will permit unlocking of building entrances and doors to common spaces, including parking garages, clubhouses, playrooms, fitness centers, pools, mailrooms, laundry and other secure areas.

“PDK’s open API gives dealers the ability to offer customers the convenience of access control nestled seamlessly within other applications, and our integration with InvictusXP is a prime example, as it simplifies, centralizes, and enhances the user experience throughout multi-tenant properties. Through a single interface, residents and system administrators can control security, scheduling, community postings, and more. At the same time, the integration offers synergistic capabilities not possible through either the stand-alone solution,” says Brach Bengtzen, director of marketing, ProdataKey. “We anticipate incredible excitement and demand from dealers who cater to the multi-tenant residential market.”

ProdataKey, InvictusXP Collaboration Provides Convenience to Occupants

According to both companies, when residents move in, building managers will register them within the ProdataKey system. Permissions are set based upon each resident’s access needs. These permissions will be determined by unit location, parking privileges and other factors.

Once the permissions for each resident are set, synchronization between the ProdataKey and InvictusXP databases make the Invictus interface the only app necessary.

In addition to mobile credentials, residents will receive a randomly-generated 4-digit PIN code for PDK PIN readers, which they can change to a code of their choice. When residents move out, access control credentials are deactivated along with their Invictus user log-in.

ProdataKey and InvictusXP point out that through the Invictus app, residents can unlock doors for visitors remotely. Residents can also issue temporary credentials to their guests, granting them access permissions that match their own. For example, this feature allows adult children visiting their parents to use their phones to enter and move about the building during their stay with their parents.

Some of the other actions that residents can utilize include the ability to set an expiration date for the temporary passes they have issued.  Temporary passes will automatically time out after one week, but the companies emphasize the temporary passes can be easily renewed through the Invictus app. For security monitoring purposes, activity logs document all PDK reader events initiated by residents and their guests.

“Anytime you can centralize functionality into a single pane of glass for the end-user and manager it’s a win. We are proud to be partnering with PDK and their amazing technology. We are going to put the power back in the hands of their dynamic channel consultants and installers,” adds Kevin DeMattio, CEO of InvictusXP. “We know there is great value in this combined solution for all of multi-family, student-living, and co-working because there are so many moving parts to their ecosystem.”
