Latch / Lock system


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The highest safety and security juxtaposed against soft and fluid curves for engaging and seamless interactions. Latch is the first smart access system that works for your apartment, your office and your home. Open your door with a passcode or an app, eliminate keys from your life and securely manage all the people that need to access your space from the palm of your hand. Always let the right people in and see what’s happening when you can’t be there. Multi-factor authentication, photo capture and a complete audit trail of access activity create an unmatched level of security.
