’s smart video intercom for apartment buildings is a robust property access solution that includes a full-featured mobile app and is designed for fast and easy installation, requiring only three connections: internet, power, and door strike.
Their video intercom system is intended to meet the needs of modern apartment buildings. The cloud-based system includes an iOS and Android mobile app so tenants can see and speak with visitors from their smartphone before granting them property access from wherever they are in the world. The mobile app can also be used by tenants to provide themselves with property access as well as manage visitor access for friends, family, and service providers through the use of QR codes.
ButterflyMX further enhances convenience for apartment buildings with key-fobbed elevators by temporarily unlocking these elevators for only the floor the resident lives on.
“The ButterflyMX smart intercom is designed to be a powerful property access solution for tenants, visitors, and building staff without the added cost and headache of building wiring or in-unit hardware,” describes Cyrus Claffey, ButterflyMX founder. “Our system leverages the device everyone already has in their hands to provide and manage property access, their smartphone.”
All of their intercom models include a touchscreen display enclosed in an IP65-rated weatherized casing, which can withstand even the most extreme conditions. Other features include:
- An online dashboard for the simplified management of tenants, to add/revoke permissions, and to grant property access remotely
- Audit trails of time- and date-stamped photos of all property entries stored for 365 days
- Integrations with other cloud-based property technology including leading property management systems such as Yardi, Entrata, Real Page, and MRI
- Feature enhancements pushed out regularly to both their intercoms and mobile app
ButterflyMX’s flexible, cloud-based architecture allows it to be installed in apartment buildings of any size, regardless of the number of tenants. Each video intercom can control up to four doors, and multiple intercoms can be installed at various entry points throughout a single property for managed access to auxiliary doorways, gates, and garages.
