Southco, Inc., a global leader in engineered access solutions, has launched a new wireless access system featuring the Keypanion app, a smart access app that lets users wirelessly actuate latches from their smartphones.
The app replaces physical keys, which can be lost or stolen. While other remote or electronic access systems may require a full security system, this system removes that barrier to entry with a setup process as easy as creating an account and connecting a Southco Bluetooth controller to one of many compatible latches.
Access to these latches can also be shared with other accounts so users can be certain that only the right people can unlock their device at all times. The Keypanion app provides an easy way for anyone to step into the next generation of electronic access.
The Keypanion app was born from a desire to reduce dependency on physical keys. They can be difficult to keep track of, and can be lost, stolen or damaged. The app removes this uncertainty and hassle with a system that is easy to set up and use no matter the user’s technological knowledge.
Users can easily set up their smart access system by downloading the Keypanion app, creating an account and registering any compatible Southco latch. After registering, users have peace of mind knowing that their devices are secure, and no one will gain access without their permission.
Users can freely share access with other accounts from anywhere in the world with the push of a button in the app. They can also set this access to expire after a set period of time to ensure that others only have access when they need it. This sharing method is more secure than lending out physical keys, which can be lost, stolen or damaged in the process.
With the Keypanion app, you can see who has access to your devices any time, and instantly grant or revoke a user’s access. Convenience is a major focus of the Keypanion app, and its sharing functionality ensures that the right people will always have access to a device at the right times.
The combination of the Keypanion app, Southco Bluetooth controller and compatible latch requires no dedicated IT team to set up, and with a smartphone nearby, the system is always easy to use. The Keypanion app replaces physical keys, so there is no risk of one being lost or stolen and provides additional security benefits such as timed access sharing and status monitoring.
