Janus International, the leading global experts in the design, manufacture and installation of turnkey self storage solutions and Nokē, the creators of high tech smart locking solutions, today announced an exclusive partnership to bring a battery powered SecurGuard lock and a new mobile entry and monitoring app to the self storage industry.
The new battery powered and hybrid battery powered version of the SecurGuard locking solution eliminates the need for extensive hardwiring and onsite access control software, which were limitations of the first iteration of the product.
The new locking solution includes a feature rich SecurGuard mobile app that allows renters to access their unit as well as gates, elevators, overhang doors and more.
Since the app is fully cloud based, facility owners no longer have to worry about security system compatibles or legacy product limitations.
Speaking to the beta reception of the new app and wireless solution, Terry Bagley, President of Janus International’s Door Entry & Facility Automation Division noted “Renters are already loving the app and owners and operators are excited about the ease of installation of the new SecurGuard™ smart entry system. The new smart unit system gives renters the convenience of mobile access to their unit, gates, man-doors, and elevators, and allows owners to easily retrofit the locks on both occupied and vacant units.”
David Gengler, Co-founder and CEO of Nokē, commented “We’re thrilled about the partnership and we’re excited to offer facility owners more control over their sites. By combining our smart-lock communication technology with Janus’s SecurGuard individual door locking and monitoring solution, operators can track access to the facility and utilize the data to make better business decisions. The SecurGuard smart entry system provides owners with new revenue sources while improving the efficiency of labor intensive tasks like overlocking and lock checks. These tasks can now be automated, allowing site managers to focus on other sales and customer service tasks.”
The all new SecurGuard been installed in a number of stores across the country and will continue to be rolled out globally over the coming months. The new solution will be generally available beginning March, 14th 2018. For more information about the all-new SecurGuard, visit JanusIntl.com/SecurGuardApp.
