Smart access control meets high-quality door hardware to create cutting-edge home security for multifamily residences, with Homebase + Allegion Canada.
Toronto, ON – Allegion, a global leader in security products and solutions, today announced its partnership with Homebase.ai. Schlage, an Allegion brand, is now a door hardware provider for Homebase’s smart access control integration in the Canadian market. Homebase offers an all-inclusive technology-forward solution for multifamily residential smart buildings. This innovative home technology prioritizes efficiency beyond a traditional lock and key with simplified remote access management.
“The partnership was initially launched by our counterparts in the United States and is a natural progression moving into the Canadian market. At Allegion, we’re constantly innovating with our products; therefore, partnering with a company like Homebase was an obvious and strategic fit. This is a great solution for Canadian property owners and developers alike, and we’re thrilled to join forces with Homebase,” said Erin Mann, Strategy and Marketing Manager, Multifamily at Allegion Canada.
Homebase’s automated management platform enables mobile and fob access on all assigned perimeter, community and apartment unit doors. It also allows for perimeter doors to be controlled via mobile or fob credentials for residents, guests, staff and vendors. The Homebase Resident App will enable residents to access their unit and community doors using their smartphone as a digital key. Being able to manage access remotely significantly improves security and operational efficiency. Property managers can also easily grant access to amenity spaces such as gyms, pools, common rooms, etc., on a scheduled basis.
“It was essential for us to align with a lock manufacturer that offers top-grade hardware. With Schlage’s 100+ year legacy of pioneering residential safety solutions, we knew we couldn’t find a more appropriate partner,” said Katie Fulghum, VP of Sales and Development for Homebase. “The Canadian market is an important territory for us, and we look forward to navigating our way into multifamily residential spaces alongside Allegion Canada.”
From complete building access to individual units, a single credential provides access to all doors in a building with Homebase Access Software and Schlage’s Smart Deadbolts and wireless locks. The Schlage Control lock is recognized for its style and dependability, making it a preferred choice for multifamily, student housing, vacation rentals, single-family landlords, military housing and senior living communities. The Schlage NDE Series wireless lock is explicitly developed for facilities that want to upgrade to electronic credentials for improved security and efficiency. It is ideal for interior office doors, common area doors and sensitive storage spaces with a cylindrical door prep.
