Onity, which provides electronic access solutions and mobile credentialing to a variety of industries including self storage, has announced that it is integrating sensors into its Passport smart locks that can detect temperature, motion, water, rodents, and more.


According to a press release, the Passport locking solution's Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN®) gateway enables facility owners and managers to collect and transmit information from the sensors to Onity’s Passportal cloud-based management system. The data then triggers early detection and alerts for potential security breaches or environmental abnormalities such as temperature fluctuations, water leaks, or pest infestations. 


"We are excited to unveil this innovative solution that redefines the standards of security within the self-storage industry," said Craig Henricksen, Head of Product Management, Onity. "Passport was crafted to accommodate various solutions, functioning seamlessly as a stand-alone electronic lock with extended longevity for basic storage security requirements while also offering the flexibility to integrate additional features tailored to a facility’s specific needs, ranging from advanced remote monitoring to insightful data analysis. This marks the next phase of Passport’s evolution, demonstrating the effortless integration of robust monitoring sensors into our existing LoRaWAN infrastructure without the need for costly renovations or fees.”


Onity is part of the Carrier Global Corporation, a provider of intelligent climate and energy solutions. Founded in 1986, the company also serves the education, hospitality and military industries. For more information, visit www.onity.com.
