SmartRent, a smart home automation solution provider announces it has integrated with TLJ Access Control which will now support the manufactures Zpad. The Zpad advances access control by integrating TLJ Access Control’s range of smart locks with the SmartRent ecosystem.

Zpad is an online, real-time, battery-powered and wireless digital keypad that wirelessly connects with TLJ Access Control’s locks. The locks are installed on doors and the Zpad sits adjacent to it – generally mounted next to the door on the wall or door frame.

The locks and Zpads are connected wirelessly, while Zpads communicate with SmartRent’s network via Z-Wave. By doing this, Build to Rent residents, guests, and site teams can control the electronic door lock securely by either using pin codes on the Zpad digital keypad, or by accessing it remotely from a mobile device. There are also benefits when it comes to conducting self-guided tours – as it increases a team’s efficiency and helps to lease homes faster.

TLJ Access Control’s locks that are supported by the Zpad include Invisible – a seamless lock that’s hardly noticeable, Rezlock – a slim, stylish and fully self-contained electronic handle set, TLJ Revolution – a slim and sleek solution that uses a RFID key card and Bluetooth smartphone technology for contactless operation, TLJ Identity – a statement smart lock which has a split design with a sperate handle and reader, and TLJ Infinity – the most popular electronic lock which sets the standard in simple and secure access.

The global smart lock market is set to grow annually by 18% to reach $47bn by 2032, according to a recent report from Fact.MR. And with 88% of all UK adults already owning a smartphone, most adults already own the device that’s needed to control an electronic door lock.
