PointCentral acquires Doorport, Inc.
The acquisition accelerates PointCentral's push to provide a complete IoT solution that combines resident wants with property manager needs
PointCentral, an Alarm.com company, has acquired New York-based Doorport, Inc. Doorport’s smart intercom solution helps to improve building access security and convenience at multifamily properties for residents, guests, property managers, and delivery personnel.
The acquisition accelerates PointCentral’s push to provide a complete IoT solution that combines resident wants with property manager needs. From a single integrated platform, PointCentral Smart Property Management will offer mobile device-initiated access to buildings and smart apartment technology along with robust building security, property management and unattended showing capabilities.
Doorport’s cellular-based system provides property owners with a simple retrofit solution that smart-enables existing intercoms without needing to extend ethernet or Wi-Fi to the intercom unit or requiring all-new intercom hardware installations. Doorport’s system will be integrated into the PointCentral platform to provide a complete smart property solution, combining building and unit level access management with a best-in-class smart rental experience.
“Property managers and residents alike want a seamless curb-to-couch solution that conveniently and securely manages front door access for guests as well as service and package delivery,” said Sean Miller, president of PointCentral, in a prepared statement. “Doorport allows us to provide a complete range of solutions in a well-integrated comprehensive product suite.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to join forces with PointCentral and Alarm.com,” said Ben Taylor, CEO of Doorport, in a prepared statement. “We’re confident that by bringing Doorport into the PointCentral platform, we’ll be able to realize our mission of delivering a seamless access experience to renters and smart apartment residents across North America and beyond.”
