What is ParqEx Access Control + Premium Touchless?
Access + Touchless is our proprietary access control technology that provides reliable mobile access to people entering and exiting a property. This access control system provides a highly secured touchless option that grants authorized-only access to any locked interior or exterior door. With this system in place, smartphones become a universal remote control that eliminates the need for keys, fobs, or touching of any door handle!
How it Works!
The process is really quite simple! First and foremost, property owners and managers are in complete control of who gains authorization to which doors. If some entries are exclusively for authorized personnel, only that group of people will gain access. On the other hand, as more people use the main door, the access control app will open main entrances to a broader group of individuals. Authorized users have to approach the access door, open their ParqEx Access + App on their smartphones, and tap the corresponding access point on the app. Via a cellular network, the app will then send an access request signal to the ParqEx hardware controller (a “white box” the size of a hockey puck). If the user is authorized to enter, the ParqEx access controller will send a signal to the power control arm and thus activate the opening of the door. After the pre-approved individual enters, the door automatically securely closes behind. To summarize, it truly is a touchless two-step process for the users: approach the door and click the corresponding button on the Access + App.
ParqEx’s Access + Touchless system uses simple hardware and software, resulting in an effortless installation. Here’s how the installation of our hardware and software works:
The Free Access Control + App
Right from the palm of their hand, Access + App can give users access to just about any access point at any property. For property owners and property managers, our admin portal serves as a hub for central management. Owners and managers can decide who gets access to their property, at what doors and access points, and even when!
Power Door Control Arm Operations
For us to perfectly retrofit any door at any property, all we need to do is is install our little “White Box” along with a simple control arm on the door. With the control arm in place, it will receive control signals from our “White Box,” which will grant secure opening and closing doors for authorized users only.
Access Control + Signal Controller – White Box
The aptly named “White Box” is perhaps the most fundamental technology for the Access + Touchless operating system. With the “White Box” in place, the tiny 3-inch piece of hardware will receive the request of entry from the Access + App through a cellular connection and immediately send an operating signal to the control arm on the door for pre-approved users and visitors.
Thorough Admin Reporting, Monitoring, and Alerting System
Our admin portal can manage just about everything for management and staff. Our extremely easy-to-use admin interface provides full comprehensive reporting in real-time, allowing you to instantly know who is coming and going from your property and through which entry and exit points. Through this unique and robust reporting, monitoring, and alerting system, management can easily manage authorized users, revoke access rights, blacklist specific individuals if necessary and receive alerts when the system detects suspicious activities when monitoring your property.

Access Control + Premium Touchless In Use
ParqEx has seen success in the use of its Access + Premium Touchless technology. A great example of it being put to use is at a multi-student residence named Monarch in Buffalo, New York. On-site, the management team had security issues at their property. With students continually coming and going, they did not want a fob or code system. They feared that students would share their codes and their fobs with other non-authorized users. Due to this security risk, they knew fobs and codes were not a suitable solution for their property. They also had no way of monitoring who was coming and going from the property. Management wanted an easy-to-use system that would provide them insight into who accessed the property while simultaneously providing easy access to authorized users and students.
The ParqEx Access + Premium Touchless solution simplified the entire process for management and students alike. Since ParqEx’s installation at the Monarch building in Buffalo, New York, there have been thousands of secure entries on site. Moreover, they have experienced about 40% savings and an incredible increase in customer satisfaction.
