PR Newswire

SAN MATEO, Calif., Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Nexkey, a leading innovator in access control solutions, today launched their smart access platform that turns smartphones into digital keys. Nexkey's unique platform of hard and software components is compatible with any type of door and can withstand high traffic over long periods of time. Admins can easily add or remove users and customize individual access controls by selecting which users can access which spaces, and when.

"We want to simplify the way people experience access to physical spaces without compromising security," said Eric Trabold, CEO of Nexkey. "With Nexkey, you can use one app to open every door at your office. We focus on granting secure access to every locked space—inside and outside—by turning your smartphone into a digital key."

The Nexkey app recognizes when users are near an enabled door and grants them secure access. A Web Portal allows admins to easily review and download logs for audit reports at any time. Additionally, Nexkey can seamlessly integrate into mostly any workflow through its API. If ongoing access is not required or users don't have a Smartphone, Nexkey offers an alternative by granting access through text message.

"We use Nexkey with all of our employees, contractors and even cleaners," said Lewis Anderson, CEO of Traptic. "It's very simple to add or remove people and customize their control to give access to people for a certain time of the day or week. Nexkey allows us to stop worrying about giving access to people and instead focus on running our business."

Nexkey is an extremely versatile solution. Its smart access platform is available on both iOS and Android devices. The platform runs on wired power or battery, where the latter lasts for years, due to Nexkey's use of ultra-low power technology. A weatherproof coating means Nexkey can be installed outside. The elegant design of Nexkey's hardware allows this technology to seamlessly blend into any existing space.
