SALTO Teams With Amazon Key for Business to Combat Delivery Hassles
The collaboration aims to help ensure the security of package delivery for buildings that rely on SALTO electronic locks.
NORCROSS, Ga. — SALTO Systems has teamed with Amazon Key for Business to provide a Cloud-based solution that eliminates package delivery issues for building managers by providing safe and secure entry for Amazon delivery drivers.
SALTO is a leading manufacturer of electronic access control solutions. Amazon Key for Business is an authorized entry service for Amazon deliveries.
“Commercial and residential building managers have long spent too much time receiving and managing deliveries for residents and tenants,” says Kaushik Mani, global head, Key for Business. “And that time can add up since Amazon delivers seven days a week. We’re excited to work with SALTO to install Key for Business in multi-unit buildings to streamline the delivery process and help to improve building and package security.”
“SALTO and Amazon Key for Business are collaborating to develop a seamless solution that can address and reduce these issues, freeing up property management to tend to more important tasks,” says Steve Burk, SALTO North America marketing director.
SALTO provides secure access control via electronic locks and supporting software for numerous residential and commercial buildings. To incorporate the use of Amazon Key for Business, building management installs a free smart device that communicates with the SALTO controller and the Amazon delivery app.
To deliver a package, the Amazon delivery driver requests access to a building upon arrival via the Amazon Key for Business app. Amazon then validates the driver’s credentials using their ID, route, GPS location and time of request, and temporary access is granted to complete package delivery to common areas of a building, such as halls or mailrooms.
“SALTO has long provided access control solutions that not only improve security, but also add convenience,” Burk says. “We’re honored to work with Amazon Key for Business to help property managers operate more efficiently and to help ensure the security of package delivery for the buildings that rely on our electronic locks.”
