Salem, Oregon -

Smart locking solution elevates tenant experience with improved efficiency and security

Onity, a global leader in electronic access solutions and mobile credentialing, is announcing the launch of the Passport™ Locking Solution, which includes a smart lock, mobile app, cloud-based management system, IoT network and other Onity-approved devices, into the self-storage industry. The Passport Locking Solution allows tenants to unlock their self-storage unit doors with a mobile app. The new technology elevates the tenant experience, offers greater efficiency, adds visibility for facility operators and enhances self-storage unit security. Onity is part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.

“Onity is excited to expand its leading-edge mobile credentialing technology, which has opened doors over 250 million times since 2015, and electronic lock expertise into the self-storage segment,” said Fayyad Sbaihat, President, Onity. “Thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of self-storage facilities and tenants, the Passport Locking Solution offers a compact lock combined with our leading-edge DirectKey™ technology and cloud-based system to deliver a secure and reliable ecosystem.”

Through the PassPortal™ cloud-based management system, facility operators can grant and revoke access to units, monitor activity and streamline operations from virtually any location. Self-storage operators can also receive real-time and periodic notifications for actionable insights, further enhancing operations.

With the Passport Locking Solution, tenants can easily open their storage units without the need for keys or combinations. They can simply use a mobile app to access their storage unit, making the entire process faster and more convenient. This feature is especially beneficial for tenants who frequently visit their storage units or need to grant or revoke access to friends, family or business associates. 

"The Passport Locking Solution is a game-changer in the self-storage industry,” said André LaLande, Vice President of Sales, Onity. “We’re thrilled to introduce a solution that will make the tenant experience more convenient while also providing greater security and efficiency for facility operators.”

The Passport Locking Solution is easy to install and can be retrofitted to most existing doors. An online lock option is enabled with LoRaWAN® technology, adding another layer of security and peace of mind for facility operators and tenants, while providing the network foundation to scale more use cases.
