Retrofit Old Locks with Smart Locks

Co-working Office Space

The Case of the Small Business Owner

Bill needed to add access control to his business’ main entry; however, the building owner told him that he would be responsible for all repairs or a replacement if he damaged the door. So, Rick, Bill’s locksmith, recommended pdqSMART Cylindrical, a mobile-based Grade 1 Smart Lock, which installs using the same 161 prep that was already in the door.

Rick’s Security Services is one of a growing number of locksmiths who are discovering the tremendous potential for their own businesses by offering PDQ Smart products. pdqSMART’s simple, easy-to-use mobile phone app allowed Bill, the business owner, to create users and schedules for employees with his smartphone. And since employees always carry a mobile phone, they can use it for building access. By using a mobile phone for a credential, Bill eliminated the need for costly key cards or key fobs, as well as the necessity of rekeying doors when employees leave his employment. Plus, he can now see who comes and goes on his administrative dashboard, and so much more.

Case Closed. The customer is happy and Rick beefed up his bottom line with business that was unattainable before pdqSMART.

See the many ways Rick uses pdqSMART to solve his customers’ mysteries!
