NEW YORK, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BuildingLink.com, a market leader in the design of innovative web-based systems for managing communications, operations, and day-to-day activities for occupants and staff in residential buildings, announces that their electronic key management system KeyLink by BuildingLink® was selected for use in 13 of Western Rim's luxury properties in Texas.
KeyLink by BuildingLink is a complete electronic key security and management solution for the residential and commercial real estate market that records each key request into a password-protected database. KeyLink is also a third-generation Internet connected appliance that communicates to staff and residents through e-mail or text message every time a key is removed.
Western Rim Property Services and its wholly owned affiliate, Newport Classic Homes, own and manage over 7,500 apartment homes in Dallas/Fort Worth, Rockwall, San Antonio and Tyler, Texas. Seeking to provide its residents with the latest technology, KeyLink was an obvious choice. Especially appealing was its intuitive touchscreen, quick install, biometric fingerprint reader and secure SmartTag key tags for efficiently organizing keys.
"As part of our luxury property upgrades, we are fully committed to meeting residents' expectations and introducing the most innovative and exciting technologies available. KeyLink is a great step in that direction," said Western Rim Property Services Vice President of Property Management Ziomara Young.
The system consists of one or more 20" (140 key slots) or 30" (224 key slots) drawers, key tags, and a biometric fingerprint reader. Optional equipment includes a webcam to secure a photo of the requestor and signature pad.
"When we looked at KeyLink as a possible key tracking solution for our properties, we were impressed with the fact that all the software and firmware updates occur online automatically," said Ms. Young. "The KeyLink team was able to remotely install all 13 systems in a very short timeframe, which was a big plus, as we wanted all our properties to be using the same system at the same time."
"We are thrilled to have another prestigious luxury developer such as Western Rim choose KeyLink by BuildingLink for their key management system," said Jerry Kestenbaum, president of BuildingLink.com, LLC. "In designing KeyLink we really did want to build a better mousetrap for electronic key management, and this selection by Western Rim and other top owners reaffirms that we have achieved that goal."
Since its launch in 2010, over 139 KeyLink systems have been installed throughout the U.S. and internationally.
