ButterflyMX & Graham at The Fields

To match the high-tech lifestyles of the residents in the Bay Area, four ButterflyMX video intercoms were installed throughout the Graham at The Fields. The cloud-based video intercom empowers residents to receive video and open doors from their smartphones. Meaning they can open and manage doors from anywhere in the world — ensuring residents never need to worry about missing a visitor or delivery.

So, when property staff or residents are expecting a visitor, they can even provide the visitor with managed access via single- or recurring-use virtual keys or delivery PINs.

For peace of mind, the camera inside the intercom allows residents to visually confirm guests and delivery couriers. Also, it stores time- and date-stamped images of anyone who accesses the building for 365 days. The intercom runs on the ButterflyMX OS, powerful cloud-based software that empowers building staff to remotely update tenant information, manage access permissions, and integrate with other property technologies such as smart locks.

Above all, ButterflyMX compliments the tech-forward area surrounding Graham at The Fields by incorporating high-tech into modern living. The ButterflyMX video intercom makes property access simple for staff, residents, and visitors.
