The multifamily housing industry faces various challenges when it comes to maintaining security, efficiency, and convenience across their properties. With a diverse resident population and mix of residential, commercial, retail, and hospitality spaces, having an integrated access control and security solution is crucial.
Be-Tech, a leading supplier of RFID and electronic locks in China, offers customized security and access control systems catered to the multifamily housing sector. Their solutions leverage innovative technologies to enhance security, efficiency, sustainability, and convenience for property owners, managers, staff, and residents.
The Challenges of Multifamily Housing
A recent survey by the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) found over 80% of property managers rank safety and security as highly important to residents. However, traditional keyed locks have security flaws and present challenges like:
- Lost or unreturned keys causing access issues
- Lack of individual accountability for accessed spaces
- No automatic alerts for unauthorized entry attempts
- Difficulty tracking and restricting access across units
These can lead to compromised security, liability risks, and resident dissatisfaction.
At the same time, properties must balance security with convenience and sustainability. Solutions like keycards, while secure, can frustrate residents and staff. Ongoing battery replacement is wasteful and disruptive. And retrofitting existing doors is often prohibitively expensive.
The Be-Tech Solution
Be-Tech provides RFID and electronic lock systems that resolve these multifamily housing challenges. Their access control solutions offer:
- Enhanced security: Encrypted RFID technology prevents duplication or hacking of credentials compared to traditional metal keys. Access rights can be instantly assigned, restricted, and revoked from a central system.
- Increased accountability: Detailed audit trails log each access attempt and entry. This deters unauthorized access while enabling quick investigations.
- Automatic alerts: Instant notifications alert staff of extended door openings, repeat failed entry attempts, low battery warnings, and more.
- Convenient access: Residents and staff simply present their RFID card or input codes. No keys to carry or lose.
- Eco-friendly power: Long-life batteries reduce waste from frequent replacements. Many units offer solar or kinetic charging.
- Affordable upgrades: Be-Tech’s electronic locks install onto existing doors without expensive hardware replacements.
These features check the major boxes for security, efficiency, and convenience in multifamily housing access control.
