Benefits of Building Access Control Security

Increase Security

Automate the removal of your tenant’s former employees. Self-service user controls make sure only the right people have access to your building.

Total Visibility

Know who is in your building at all times. When an employee is terminated or leaves, Genea automatically removes them at the tenant’s suite and building level.

Save Time and Money

Empowering tenants to add and remove users saves property teams hundreds of hours per year, reducing the time and cost associated with access control.

Improve Tenant Experience

Tenants can manage their employees’ access to the base building, parking garage and other building access points. No more waiting days for a manually provisioned card.

Cloud-based Access Control + Non-proprietary Hardware

Genea combines non-proprietary hardware with a cloud-based building access control system. The result is a flexible and scalable solution built for the future.  

Benefits of the Cloud

No need to install and maintain multiple on-site servers. With the cloud, all data is stored in a centralized AWS server. You gain oversight across your entire building portfolio – all you need is an internet connection.  

Benefits of Non-proprietary Access Control

Many building access control systems only work with their proprietary hardware. Genea is different. Because we are Mercury-based, we give you the flexibility to switch software providers whenever you want without ripping out your expensive hardware.
