We’re opening doors with Nuki – in the truest sense of the word: Our customers trust in our holistic, secure and, above all, smart access solutions for single-family houses and apartment buildings. This is bringing us ever closer to our vision of digitising as many keys as possible and making physical keys obsolete.
However, that bunch of keys can often get quite bulky, especially for apartment owners and renters. In addition to their own apartment door, they have to lock at least one other door, the one at the main entrance of the apartment building. That’s why – in addition to the Nuki Opener, the retrofit solution for a building’s intercom system – we’ve been offering another digital solution since 2017: the Nuki Box.
The Nuki Box is installed discreetly behind the intercom system of the apartment building and makes the electric door opener of the main door smart. The retrofit solution grants residents access via Auto Unlock, the app or the Nuki Fob.
Since 2017, over 2,200 Nuki Boxes have been installed in apartment buildings in Germany and Austria (including in buildings of Sozialbau AG in Vienna) and have been enhancing central entrances with digital features ever since. Combine it with the Nuki Smart Lock for your apartment door and you can even enjoy a completely keyless life. Smart access from the street to your apartment – a reality with Nuki.
Since mid-2020, we have been working on many practical upgrades for the Nuki Box to make the smart door opener even better for you and accessible to even more people. Here are the specific functions and features we have improved:
The Nuki Box is not only suitable for residential buildings, it can also be used to lock main entrances and garage doors in apartment buildings, premises of associations or communal spaces. The smart door opener can also be creatively integrated into a smart home. The Nuki Box supports Auto Unlock, a popular feature from the Nuki Smart Lock, and is also compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, IFTTT and other smart home solutions.
Of course, you can also grant various service providers access to the building via the Nuki Web. If you wish, registered and authorised delivery services, tradespeople or care services can unlock doors with the Nuki Partner app via the Nuki Box Partner Network. The Nuki Box Partner Network is currently only available in certain regions (Vienna).
Some of our employees use the underground car park or the bicycle storage space in the basement when commuting to the office. We installed the Nuki Box both at the entrance to the underground car park and at the doors to the bicycle cellar. With the optional Auto Unlock function, the garage door opens as soon as the car is within Bluetooth range – so drivers don’t even have to take their smartphone out of their pocket.
The Nuki Box can be installed by the owner of the property and is therefore the perfect solution for property owners, property managers, landlords and individualists. If you’re one of these people, you can buy the Nuki Box in our Nuki Shop now.
Do you want to use the Nuki Box as a tenant in your apartment building? Then talk to your landlord or letting agent – the Nuki Box can then be installed by your property manager (as part of modernisation measures) or by the owner’s representative.
We understand that door locks can sometimes be confusing, and not everybody is an expert.
If you have any questions about Nuki, you can call us Mon-Fri between 9am-6pm (CET).
