The fastest growing segment in the physical security industry is access control. End users have seen some innovation with the introduction of the cloud and new devices such as the smartphone replacing the keycard, but in the reality behind the end user experience not much has actually changed when looking at most solutions available today.
Join us April 10 - 12th in Las Vegas at ISC West 2019. We will walk you through the Nexkey experience of smarter access, used by different types of businesses from coworking spaces to gyms. Learn how easy it is to install in any space.
Nexkey brings affordable access control to every business by eliminating cluttered systems filled with glorified readers, wiring, and outdated access control panels at ⅓ the price of traditional access control.
Any door - in 100 year old buildings to modern workspaces - can be unlocked with a phone with Nexkey, without changing any of the door hardware.
Security is a top priority for every type of business, mom-and-pop to large corporations. Yet most of the time, businesses will still resort to keys and leave themselves vulnerable, but why? Traditional access control is just simply too expensive and becomes unattainable to most of us. Costs are just not coming down.
Even if you are making some room in the budget, when you look into what is needed to get an access control system, you may think you jumped back in time. Do I really need a computer onsite for software updates, and wiring through the entire building to control all my doors on a browser? Soon enough, you end up with a quote for $28,000 for 7 doors and your jaw drops.
Why are the costs of traditional access control so high and what are the main drivers driving these costs up? Most importantly, how do you get around them?
You asked, we delivered! We are excited to announce an important update to the Nexkey app - Business Hours. This update allows you to have full control over access to your business anywhere you happen to be.
Set standard business hours and schedule a future event. Your business will remain unlocked for the times and days you choose. Unlock the space while you’re in the office or just a few hours for an appointment you scheduled. Feel rest assured your business is safe with the ability to lock your business from anywhere.
You’re in full control over access to your space - wherever you are!
Coworking spaces have proven to be the future of work with their massive growth but why are many still unprofitable? Battling the coworking giants WeWork and Regus is a frightening endeavor but doable. Niche coworking seems to be the recipe for success with shared workspaces after these corporate coworking leaders have emerged.
Your coworking space is not the Field of Dreams - if you build it, they may not come. You are not just selling desk space or a private room. Building your brand and community around a niche can be what makes you stand out from the crowd and intrigue the right people to join.
Phone, wallet, keys...check. Every morning we make sure we start our day not forgetting one.
Apple and Google are driven to eliminate the wallet with their payment platforms using the smartphone, and seem to be successful as adoption rises and wallets get smaller.
While smart locks have attempted to eliminate keys with the smartphone, our keychains have stayed the same which is why Nexkey created the Core. Instead of replacing the lock from the outside-in like traditional smart locks, the Nexkey Core reinvented the lock from the inside-out, making it the first smart access device that can turn any lock into a smart lock. The Nexkey Core can replace every one of our keys.
Joining a new community is nerve-racking. Just think of the first day of high school - you don’t have any friends yet, not sure where you fit in, and you wander around trying to figure out where everything is. Your first day or week at a shared workspace is not so far off, just swap out that research report for a pitch deck.
You asked, we listened. Our platform now has the ability to choose between 49 country codes so users with international phone numbers can enjoy Nexkey.
How does this affect you using Nexkey?
International phone numbers can now be added to the Nexkey app. Please see the list of countries supported below.
Work is changing yet again as new generations, Millennials and Gen Z, enter the workforce and technological advancements in the cloud open new doors. It’s a new culture wave washing over Silicon Valley and the rest of the world. Companies need to embrace the ride or crash on the rocks. This new worker of 2018 is known as the digital nomad, whose work is independent of the location.
How mobile is changing the security game
As a business owner, you just want to keep those who don’t belong out and give access to those who do. It only takes one person who doesn’t belong to devastate your business. Unfortunately, security is often an afterthought for small businesses after losing valuable assets during a break-in or employee theft.
