The Victor Browns Bay Allegion New Zealand’s smart locking solutions
Designed for sophisticated living, The Victor apartment complex is a striking
statement in the Browns Bay community of Auckland, with its modern mix
of patterned concrete, black metal, grooved timber, and frameless glass.
The Victor is a short stroll to the beach, with an impressive panorama of the
East Coast Bays and a lobby that opens to an atrium lined with living walls
and upward views of criss-crossed access bridges.
During the construction phase of a build, contractors require construction keys to access rooms and provide, security to the site for building materials, appliances, and tools.
“I’m a believer of securing apartments and having a controlled entry, especially when the build is furnished with expensive materials for kitchen fit outs and prevention of any unforeseen damages within apartments nearing completion,” says Willis. He adds that they would typically use construction
keys, but they would inevitably get lost. “A lot of subcontractors are given construction keys and before you know it, control is lost, and multiple spare copies are required. This happens on every single project.”
For the build of The Victor, Willis shares they only had two construction keys. “I could walk around the site and enter doors I wanted through the Schlage Breeze app. I didn’t need a key and my phone was always on me. It was convenient to not have to chase my site team for a construction key. Schlage Breeze allowed us to maintain control.” He also cites that with the Schlage Breeze app, they were able to approve selected subcontractor representatives’ ability to access apartments and produce a record of what company opened a door at any given time. An effective audit trail that
provides invaluable accountability and peace of mind.
The Schlage Breeze app offers keyless convenience and the ability to configure and access a smart lock via Bluetooth. The app allows locking and unlocking of the Schlage Omnia and Schlage eGO smart locks: program and manage unique guest codes; schedule temporary or recurring access codes for certain times of the day to control door access; send virtual keys to guests with a smartphone for additional keyless convenience; view past activity to see when guests used the lock; select length of time delay for auto-locking to make coming and going even easier; receive low battery warnings with advanced notice; customise push notifications; and configure built-in alarm warnings.
According to Galvin, “The management system is fantastic. The only thing I didn’t actually try was to allocate somebody a set time to go into the rooms, and that’s because we never really needed it. You either had access to it or you didn’t. And if you didn’t, you weren’t getting in anyway.” NZ Hardware shares that the handover training of using the Schlage Breeze app alongside the Schlage eGO and Schlage Omnia smart locks ran for just one hour, and that was all that was needed for the apartment manager to begin using the system immediately.
“It’s a great system and the app was just a breeze,” asserts Galvin.
