Project Need

GREYSTAR’s new property at The LLEWELLYN was in need of a sophisticated Video Intercom Access System that could be used and operated completely via smartphone devices for their residents. One Button Inc was tasked with finding and procuring a top-of-the-line system that would be both easy to use and have the ability to scale and be regularly updated as technologies get more advanced. One Button choose MVI Systems KeyCom® solution to address all their needs.

MVI Solution

MVI’s solution is by far the most advanced Video Intercom & Access Solution available on the market. With its sleek and sophisticated hardware products and its seamless installation on the face of a building, the KeyCom® immediately boosts any building’s curb appeal. It’s completely cloud-based app-controlled system allows it to be managed from anywhere in the world, with no software needed. Residents can answer video calls from their devices and have a FaceTime-like call, as well as easily grant entry to their visitors remotely, or even send them digital keys. The front and back end of the system is regularly updated by the development team at MVI, and Apps are constantly gaining more features.

Installation & Use

Installation of the system is quick and easy, requiring only a low voltage line and an ethernet line to operate. The system includes everything necessary for the installation, including surface mount and flush mount boxes and the main power supply. There is no need to worry about not having the right equipment on-site. Powering up is essentially plug and play, with zero programming and a self-updating process. The MVI portal is extremely user-friendly and anyone can easily setup the system. All feature settings are adjustable right from the web portal, which can even be done on a smartphone, which immediately updates to the KeyCom intercom panel. Since installation of the system at The LLEWELLYN, about half the property has been occupied and the residents are enjoying the conveniences and security that the system provides.
