5 Reasons to Integrate RemoteLock with ButterflyMX

Installed in over 10,000 multifamily, commercial, gated communities, and student housing properties, ButterflyMX is a leading access control provider. Now, ButterflyMX integrates with RemoteLock to provide seamless property-wide property access for residents and staff. But aside from the prevalence of ButterflyMX installations at properties, why are more and more property managers and owners opting to integrate RemoteLock with ButterflyMX? Let’s find out. 

1. It Offers Holistic Property Access

Say one of your residents gave their unit PIN code to a dog walker. That’s awesome, but it only solves the problem of getting into their door. What about the front door, gate, or even floor-restricted elevators? If you integrate RemoteLock with ButterflyMX, residents can manage access from the front gate to their unit — all from one app.

And they can do this in two ways! Either give guests a unique, time-sensitive PIN for the various keypads, video intercoms, elevator controls, and smart locks they’ll encounter on their way in. Or, tenants can grant access to guests via the ButterflyMX mobile app as they request it. Either way, the ButterflyMX intercom takes a time- and date-stamped photograph that’s stored in an audit log and can be viewed at any time in the ButterflyMX for premium security.

2. Maintenance Saves Time

When asked to imagine a maintenance worker, images of someone carrying a comically cramped key ring likely come to mind. But when you integrate RemoteLock and ButterflyMX, this idea becomes one of the past! Through this integration, maintenance workers are granted unique PINs that give them time-sensitive access to cleaning storage areas, communal spaces, and units that have requested maintenance.

This benefits not only members of your property’s maintenance team but also the entire property. Tenants can submit maintenance requests and know that their problem will be addressed within a reasonable time because maintenance team members can bypass the extra step of retrieving credentials from property management and move directly to fix the issue instead. Further, with the RemoteLock and ButterflyMX integration, you can grant access to maintenance workers remotely from a single mobile app. 

3. Management Doesn’t Have to Lift a Finger

Taking advantage of the integration between ButterflyMX and RemoteLock empowers property management staff to manage access without needing to be onsite. So, managers and owners can centralize their property management efforts by managing access to multiple buildings remotely. 

Furthermore, staff don’t have to spend their entire work day letting tenants into units, verifying visitor identities, and unlocking doors. Instead, they can spend their time doing things that will please their tenants. 

4. It Levels Up Property Safety 

With ButterflyMX and RemoteLock, you can say goodbye to physical keys, key fobs, and key cards. As a result, the possibility of these physical credentials being lost or stolen is eliminated. Your tenants never have to worry about misplaced or forgotten keys again. And if their phone is lost or the battery dies, they can still enter via the ButterflyMX video intercom using their unique PIN code. 

5. No More Lockouts

Is there anything more annoying as a tenant than getting to your unit and realizing you’ve misplaced your key? How about being a property manager and getting pulled away from an important project to unlock a resident’s door because they lost their key?

When you integrate RemoteLock and ButterflyMX, you never have to deal with a lockout again! Instead, residents can go credential-free, managing access from a single mobile app. As a backup, if their phone dies or is misplaced, they can use a unique PIN to gain entry.
