[SCOTTSDALE, AZ – September 8, 2021] PTI Security Systems, the global leader in access control technologies for the self-storage industry, showcased today for the first time the entire collection of their new fully integrated hardware and software platform at the Self-Storage Association’s (SSA) National Fall Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
SSA Fall attendees we’re able to interact with all aspects of the new platform, including:
• StorLogix Cloud The fall release will further integrate PTI’s flagship Access Control Software with its hardware, creating a seamless flow of data from the field to operators. The release will include an exciting new StorLogix Cloud user experience with an intuitive user-interface refresh, a dashboard displaying portfolio-wide KPI’s (key performance indicators), and enhanced reporting capabilities. When used in conjunction with PTI’s cloud-native system controller, operators have expanded capabilities including customizable notifications and a diagnostic dashboard for device health at-a-glance.
• The AP1 Keypad A redesigned keypad that transcends traditional functionality to improve durability and further improve the customer experience. The all-new weatherproofing and new technology like Bluetooth Low Energy beacons (BLE) – make customizing access points across a site and portfolio a breeze.
• CloudController The CloudController is a new cloud-native system controller that creates a seamless connection point between onsite hardware and portfolio-wide software.
“With this newly released hardware and software, we’re not only improving the experience for everyone who interacts with access control – operators, customers, and security integrators – but are laying the foundation for innovations and enterprise scalability,” said Thomas Brooks, Managing Director of PTI Security Systems. We at PTI are Proud of the work we have accomplished the past 18 months, setting a new vision for our future, defining our journey, and bringing to fruition this new platform. Our partners who have been integral in this development are eager to share their success stories.”
With its new access control platform, PTI aims to help self-storage organizations move away from outdated and fragmented offerings of older access control solutions. “Historically, access control management is unique to each property and comes with a steep learning curve, leaving little room for active monitoring and management,” said Nathan Davenport, PTI Security Systems’ Solutions Manager. “By leveraging an intuitive platform, our customers can collect, analyze, and act on data, from wherever it’s being collected, for greater visibility and control across a portfolio.”
Customer and partner input has been a key factor in PTI’s efforts around the new platform. With years of input from the industry’s leading Operators and Security Integrators, PTI’s latest solutions are built to handle all the requirements of the modern self-storage business.
Also included in the launch of the new platform is greater visibility and functionality for PTI Partners, the security integrators that represent PTI in local markets across the world. With the new cloud-native integration, PTI partners will be able to assist with customization and remotely access customers instances from anywhere in the world to enable changes on the fly. This remote access, paired with hardware improvements, means operators can tailor a solution to their needs and reduce downtime, resulting in a better customer experience.
“As a longstanding partner of PTI, we appreciate the strides they’re making to redesign the customer experience by incorporating their Partners,” said Bryan Sweeney, Systems Designer at SOS Integrated Systems Ltd. “It’s clear that PTI is fully committed to the success of their customers with the recent investments they’ve made. From providing partners with on-demand training tools to a dedicated technical team, they’ve made it easy to ensure our shared customers can achieve their vision for security. That’s what really sets them apart.”
This highly anticipated launch is expected to be released to the public later this year.
