As part of our continuous effort to enrich the MyBuilding.org platform with value-add services (such as KeyTrak), we are pleased to announce another partnership with an innovative new high tech provider of security systems – FST21 and their groundbreaking service – SafeRise. MyBuilding.org users will enjoy a seamless integration with SafeRise, as well as special pricing from FST21.
More about SafeRise:
FST21’s identity management system, SafeRise® offers a secure, convenient and reliable way to let the right people in and keep the wrong people out. It is a preventive and intelligent controlled access solution for residential high rises, town houses and affordable living projects that allows simple and convenient entry to residents and visitors without the use of a key or a code.
The state-of-the-art intelligent building technology combines biometrics, using fusion of facial, voice and behavioral recognition to verify a user’s identity and determine whether or not the individual is permitted access. It complements doormen or it provides a complete solution for buildings that do not use doormen.
Residents simply look at the camera at the building entrance and the door will open. If for some reason SafeRise doesn’t recognize a resident’s face and behavior (if they forget to look at the camera for instance) the system’s intercom will ask for their name and apartment number. Matching the voice in the database with the resident will open the door.
SafeRise will connect residents, visitors, deliveries, pickups and maintenance to a representative from a 24/7 monitoring center for further assistance if needed.

As part of our continuous effort to make communication with residents easier and more effective, we have launched several new features to our Lobby Display Screen (LDS). In addition to displaying package information, the LDS can now serve as a communication hub, delivering fresh rotating content from the resident portal, including neighborhood and building events and discounts. It can also serve as an internal marketing tool for you to deliver important messages to residents, such as encouraging them to use the portal to submit requests. The LDS is particularly useful for communicating with residents that haven’t had a chance yet to register with the service or don’t own a computer.
