Dwelling Live

Dwelling Live is a product designed for multi-family communities that manages access control, visitor management, security, community websites and more -- all on one cloud-based platform. It's features can be mixed and matched and added over time. We believe it is the best solution for gated and high-rise communities.

Call us for a demo and reference sites.

Paxton Access Control

Paxton is the access control system we recommend for its simplicity of operation, handsome design, technical features and cost effectiveness. We've been successful replacing old systems, while reusing all credentials and card readers, as well as building new systems.

Folding Vehicle Gates

There's now an excellent alternative to the traditional roll-up or tilt-up gates for underground parking garages. It's a folding swing gate design. They have several advantages:

Faster: The gate opens faster than a tilt-up or roll-up door
Quieter: It's motor doesn't attach to the ceiling, so it's quieter
Reliable: There are no springs and fewer moving parts
