The challenge for The Flying Locksmiths

Blending traditional values with forward-thinking tech, The Flying Locksmiths has cemented its position as a security industry leader by partnering with providers of the latest access control property technology.

From multifamily buildings to commercial office spaces, The Flying Locksmiths’ clients rely on their expertise to recommend tailored solutions for their unique property needs. So, the professionals at The Flying Locksmiths must be able to recommend products that are reliable, adaptable, scaleable, and stand strong over time. “We install access control systems, work on safes, intercoms. The motto is, if it’s on the door, we handle it,” explains Joe Ferrick, a franchise owner based out of New York City. “ButterflyMX has helped my business working in the five boroughs in that once we’ve installed it, we’re not going to get a call back as to [the] functionality or the product’s not working. We know it’s a solid product. It’s doing what it’s supposed to,” explains Ferrick.


It’s straightforward. You’re not juggling hundreds of different products; they lead with the product that works. There’s a lot of different size products for different sized buildings or whatever the case might be.

Choosing a solution

The Flying Locksmiths recommends ButterflyMX because installers have the peace of mind of knowing that it’s the best product for making property access simple for clients.

What’s more, the ButterflyMX dealer program empowers technicians with the training and expertise they need to install the video intercom, as well as educate them on a suite of other end-to-end access control solutions. This empowers installers with the skills they need to stay ahead of the curve and install a wide range of cutting-edge technologies.

“What sets ButterflyMX’s dealer program apart is that it’s very easy… you can log into the portal and see everything right in front of you in terms of the installs you’ve done, updated product information, and then whatever else you need to hopefully close a new deal,” explains Ferrick.


The technical team is at the ready … They’re there to help you because they know time is money. You want to get this install going and move on to the next one.

The outcome

After installing ButterflyMX in properties throughout New York City, The Flying Locksmiths franchise owner Joe Ferrick says, “So far with ButterflyMX, it’s been a home run.”

ButterflyMX’s range of robust features are designed to work seamlessly to facilitate property-wide access for clients and is easy to install. “ButterflyMX also saves us time when it comes to the first time we’re meeting with a specific customer, whether they’re the property management company or the building owner … they sometimes have already done their homework in terms of how well the product works, and then the product gets up and running, and then everybody’s happy,” explains Ferrick.
