All companies or service providers that had access via a central key so far need a partner access for the Nuki Box. Partner accesses are free of charge.
Before the installation of the Nuki Box, the access control of the buildings was often controlled with central keys. Due to the expiration of the patent for central keys, it is possible that every person can acquire a central key and thus gain access to the buildings. This represents an increased security risk.
As a secure alternative for their residents, more and more property managers therefore rely on the Nuki Box as a secure access system. As a consequence, the central key cylinders are removed. Thus, the building can be entered exclusively via an access permission for the Nuki Box.
Several residential buildings have already been equipped with the Nuki Box as a secure access system.
