what is butterflymx


The ButterflyMX system is your complete property access solution for multifamily buildings, commercial properties, gated communities, student housing, and more, providing a secure, convenient, and affordable way to manage and grant access on the go. Our access control products empower your tenants and building staff to open doors, gates, and elevators with a smartphone and ensure they never miss a visitor or delivery.

Not only is the installation easy but you’ll also cut costs by eliminating building wiring and in-unit hardware. Additionally, you’ll save time by integrating ButterflyMX products with popular access control and property management systems.


We offer many features to enhance security and convenience for residents, owners, property managers, installers, and developers.


ButterflyMX system features for residents include:


Swipe to open

Your residents can open a door/gate for themselves or a visitor by swiping within the ButterflyMX mobile app.


Virtual keys

Residents can send virtual keys to friends, family, and guests for managed access that can be revoked at any time.


Delivery PINs

Tenants or building staff can easily issue single- or recurring-using Delivery PINs to couriers so they can always make their delivery.

Video calling

Visitors alert residents of their arrival by placing a video call to a resident’s smartphone. Residents can see who is trying to get access to the property before letting them in.


Voice controls

Connect your Alexa- or Siri- enabled device to unlock the door with just your voice.


Door release logs

Review all door releases with a time- and date-stamped photo from within the app.


Elevator controls

ButterflyMX can control access to key-fobbed elevators. When a resident grants property access to a visitor, the elevator will automatically open and only allow the visitor to access the correct floor.
