The Keypanion App Puts Wireless Access in the Palm of Your Hand
Southco is thrilled to introduce a new wireless access system featuring the Keypanion™ app, a revolutionary smart access app that lets users wirelessly actuate latches from their smartphones. The app replaces physical keys, which can be lost or stolen, with a convenient, intuitive system that is easy to install and manage. 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. That said, it’s unlikely that you’re the only one that needs access to a device. Luckily, sharing access with the Keypanion app is even easier than handing someone a physical key. You can freely share access to your devices with other accounts from anywhere in the world with the push of a button in the app.
Additionally, you can also set this access to expire after a set period of time to ensure that others only have access when they need it. For instance, if you have a contractor coming to service a machine, and they need to access its inner workings, you can set your device to only let them unlock it when they are scheduled to be on-site.
This sharing method is more secure than lending out physical keys, which can be lost, stolen, or damaged in the process. Convenience is a major focus of the Keypanion app, and sharing functionality ensures that the right people will always have access to a device at the right times. But convenience is only one focus of Keypanion. Security has always been a high priority for Southco, and Keypanion is no different.
This app heightens security beyond simply replacing physical keys. As long as a phone with the Keypanion App is near your latch, you will be able to see if it is open or closed. This status also comes with a timestamp so there is no confusion around when it was last updated. Users can also view a device’s history for up to fourteen days, to see which accounts have accessed the device, and when. These features make the Southco wireless access system a convenient first step for anyone looking to upgrade to electronic access.
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 The world of smart access is just getting started, and Keypanion is leading the way.
