StratIS moves beyond energy and automation to create the most advanced and complete software platform for multifamily and campus communities, integrating Allegion’s Schlage Control™ Smart Locks and launches at National Apartment Association Education Conference in Las Vegas.
June 24, 2015 – PHILADELPHIA — StratIS EMS, LLC creator of the award-winning StratIS wireless access, energy, and automation platform, announced its creation and implementation of its access software platform, with an intuitive and advanced access management and control software for multifamily and campus communities. 150,000 retrofit units are forecasted to install the new software in 2015, with additional new construction units forecasted for 2016.
The partnership furthers Allegion’s multifamily growth strategy, strengthening its standing as the most advanced technology offering in access management while expanding the StratIS offering beyond the energy and automation industry. StratIS has its energy and automation technology in millions of square feet of multifamily and hospitality space worldwide, from public housing projects to premier Class A space.
“The StratIS expansion into access has been on our roadmap since the beginning, but demand moved it to the forefront. The opportunity to partner with the leading access company in the multifamily industry to develop that expansion is a competitive advantage that we anticipate providing years of runway. We are confident the StratIS solution will rapidly change the commercial residential access management and control landscape, but to roll out with Allegion’s Schlage for this launch that makes ten years of technology development worthwhile,”
The new StratIS software platform was developed with the specificity of multifamily challenges in mind, just like the StratIS energy management and control and automation software. Rather than taking an existing and antiquated technology and forcing it into multifamily scenarios, StratIS once again built a system from scratch, around noted industry desires and pain points in access. The result is the most advanced yet easy and intuitive access system in the market, at a cost-competitive price. Features like no-tour, rapid key replacement, upgradeable software, innovative online and tablet access, vendor control and scheduling are all standard as stand alone or integrated into the StratIS platform. The current system will be perpetually iterated upon, to include new features and additional benefits as the technology is developed.
Chris DeSchamp, Smart Home Evangelist and Portfolio Leader for Allegion said, “We see StratIS as a key partner and piece of our multi-family solution offering. The StratIS platform solution was the first we found which brought together access control, energy management, and automation for the multi-family market. Their approach to solving the access management and control challenges is both unique and elegantly simple. Allegion is especially excited about the implications of this project for the future of access management in the multi-unit space, and StratIS gives us a partner solution which will put Schlage at the leading edge for years to come.”
