How To Create A Timer: A Step-By-Step Guide To Automate Building Access With Lowkey

The Problem With Buzzer Access

For apartment renters, managing access to their building can be a hassle. Traditional buzzers require residents to manually buzz in guests, usually by recieving calls on their smartphone, which can be inconvenient and time-consuming, especially if the resident is not home or is occupied.

For example, if you're busy hosting a party and is expecting guests, chances are that your guests are coming in at all different times. This can be frustrating when you're busy trying to be a good host and keeping your phone by your side all the time to make sure you can buzz in guests.

The Solution – Lowkey

Enter Lowkey, a mobile application that enables users to personalize and control their apartment callbox access. Users can set up timed access for specific events or guests, create personal passcodes for friends and family, schedule access for routine services such as dog walkers, and share the app access with roommates.

The app also sends notifications, records activity history, and has the option of three subscription plans: Lite, standard, and premium. The app aims to provide convenience and security for apartment renters with callboxes by allowing them to easily manage access to their building. Check out the app explainer video:
