CommonFloor Groups, a strategic business unit owned by CommonFloor, has recently launched a smart solution to keep its gated community secure from unwarranted visitors entering the premises.
The solution, named ‘CommonFloor Smart Guard’ is a mobile app that can be installed on any Android smartphone or tablet which will enable communities to turn their security guards into ‘Smart Guards’ and start recording visitor information digitally. It provides a robust, cloud-based online platform to residents & apartment associations to connect, communicate & collaborate with each other in order to transform their residential complex into a ‘Smarter Community’.
Using CommonFloor Smart Guard App, communities can let the security guards record the movement of visitors (Staff/ Guests/ Vendors) in the mobile app, send automatic SMS alerts to residents on a guest’s arrival to ensure authorized entry. Also, the apartment association gets regular automated reports listing the number of visitors, which helps in keeping a systematic record and maintaining good security measures at the community.
The services on the app enables apartment associations/managing committees to perform various tasks smartly. For instance, collecting apartment maintenance online, managing resident complaints & communication, automated solutions for accounting, Inventory, asset, parking & staff management. Besides, it also offers a private social network for residents to connect, communicate and collaborate with each other online.
The app can record up to 15 data points about a visitor including photo, classify them as staff, guests and vendors, and record their entry/exit times. It also works in offline mode, which means without internet connection is required throughout the day. The app can also be integrated with a biometric system to ensure seamless integration between various security systems a community may have.
