About us

Founded in 2014, we make property access simple for 7,500+ multifamily and commercial properties.

Our mission: to provide secure, convenient, and affordable property access from a smartphone.

About ButterflyMX

In 2014, our founder and executive chairman, Cyrus Claffey embarked on a mission to revolutionize the traditional apartment intercom system. Recognizing the power and convenience of smartphones, Claffey teamed up with Mathew Knoff, Kunal Shah, and Ivan Mihalj to create the first-ever smartphone-powered intercom and unleashed it into the world in 2015.

Since its inception, ButterflyMX has evolved into more than just an intercom. Today, ButterflyMX is a complete property access solution, providing a secure, convenient, and affordable way to manage and grant access on the go. From your building’s entryway throughout your entire property, ButterflyMX has a solution for all your access needs.

ButterflyMX empowers residents and building staff to open doors, gates, and elevators with a smartphone — ensuring they never miss a visitor or delivery. Enjoy easy installation and cut costs by eliminating building wiring and in-unit hardware, and save time by integrating with popular access control and property management systems. Join the 7,500+ multifamily, commercial, gated community, and student housing properties that have made access simple with ButterflyMX.

“We transformed property access by creating the world’s first smart video intercom that could send video fluttering from the front door through the ether like colorful wings to any person no matter where in the world they are.”
