Geokey Ushering in PSIM 2.0

As new security hardware continues to advance into the future, so too do the methods of those looking to subvert it. While traditional access control and security methods, such as locks and cameras, might work well as a crime deterrent, a determined individual can analyze and work around the flaws in such systems to get what they want. To address this, the way we view security needed to change: one system was no longer enough to address the problems: rather, a system that combined security, data collection, and access control had to be created. This is where the original PSIM system emerged.

What is PSIM?

PSIM, also known as Physical Security Information Management, connects several unconnected security systems and manages them from a single point. The system can sift through and audit the data from these different points, allowing administrators to see everything on their property. The PSIM system has been used since the 90s, managing security technology and analytics for everything from corporate buildings to city police. When first introduced, the software would usually be implemented in a security room, with numerous computers compiling and storing the data from all its connected parts.

There are a few key factors that make up a fully functioning PSIM system, which include:

1. Data Analysis: PSIM collects data from all of the integrated systems and allows the administrator to view it.

2. Verification: PSIM will present the most relevant data to the administrator.

3. Auditing: Data is stored and categorized to draw on quickly.

Thanks to the cloud and modern technology, Geokey can bring the PSIM system into the future with PSIM 2.0.

Why do we Call Geokey PSIM 2.0?

Geokey, through its innovative access control software, can utilize the tools that make PSIM such an effective security solution. What once took a vast system hardwired into a building can now be managed from a smart device in the palm of your hand!

Because Geokey is hardware-agnostic, meaning it can integrate with different unconnected systems, the software can manage a wide variety of hardware. The Geokey app can integrate and unlock these systems, as well as collect analytical data from them. This data shows everything, such as when a door is opened to who unlocked it, providing a comprehensive security solution. Where the old versions of PSIM required it to be hardwired into the building and connected to the system itself, Geokey utilizes the cloud to control and collect data from a smart device. Administrators can fully use the functions of Geokey, from unlocking doors and granting user access to looking at analytics anywhere in the world, thanks to its connection to the cloud. Geokey users don’t even need wi-fi to view and access the integrated hardware.

Geokey is constantly finding new manufacturers to partner with. The list of hardware our software has integrated with continues to grow in order to fill the vast array of needs business and property owners need filled when it comes to security. From door controllers to padlocks and even building intercom systems, Geokey-compatible hardware can be installed into any access point to give managers control of their building. And, because Geokey’s software is built upon Microsoft Azure, it is a secure solution to manage building access.

In a world with evolving threats, property owners need to know their buildings are secure and under their control. Through Geokey, managers can have this security and control, knowing they can control who can access their property and have the data they need at their disposal.

Is Retrofitting Even Worth It?

The world is constantly changing, with innovations continually shaking things up. These innovations have always impacted our lives, from the creation of smartphones to the newest cars on the road. This is the same for multi-family properties, as smart technology becomes more common with new developments, especially regarding access control.

However, this raises many questions for multi-family managers using the old lock and key or fob reader system. Why should retrofitting even be considered a valid option when the old way of access control still works perfectly fine? With Geokey, there are plenty of benefits to retrofitting that will both save and make you money down the line.

Attractive Amenity

In a study conducted by NMHC/Grace Hill on amenity preferences last year, over 60% of the 221,000 renters claimed they wanted smart locks as an amenity, with 62% wanting smart security in general. Beyond that, 71% of participants expressed a high interest in building and amenity access control in general.

In that same survey, almost half of the millennials and Gen Z participants stated they viewed smart tech, particularly smart locks, as a higher priority amenity than parking space. These participants even went on to say that smart tech could be a deciding factor in whether they go with one apartment or another! As technology continues to grow and evolve, more people from all demographics see it as the future of comfortable living. With such a growing number of renters seeing the benefits of smart access control and security, having your multi-family invest in it seems like a smart choice.

Less Hassle, More Security

What exactly makes smart access control solutions such an appealing amenity, given the growing number of people asking for them? For one, it makes everyday life much easier and less of a hassle. While having a large ring of keys can be challenging to manage (one for the building, one for the room, another for the mailbox, and others to who knows where), Geokey’s solution allows you to simplify and manage all of the access control on a property from the security of the user’s phone.

This solution doesn’t just create less hassle for your tenants. With our system, you can easily grant and manage who has access to your property and at what time, making move-in and move-out dates easier. Now you don’t need to waste time and money rekeying locks, copying more keys, or changing easily leaked passcodes when you feel security is compromised. With Geokey’s management system, you don’t have to worry about former tenants holding onto old fobs to access resident-only amenities. A mobile-based, smart access control solution makes life easier for both tenants and managers.

Save Money and Increase NOI

One of the most significant reasons to retrofit your old apartment’s access control is because, for an investment in the present, you can see a substantial increase in profits and Net Operating Income (NOI) down the line. How do we know this? Well, look back at everything we’ve talked about so far.

Remember in the last section how Geokey’s solution removes the hassle of rekeying your units whenever a tenant moves out or loses their key? Well, this solution also saves you the money of rekeying. With our all-in-one turnkey solution to access control, you can manage move-in/out days, access management, and simple yet effective security through your smart device. Because Geokey operates through Bluetooth and the Cloud, you don’t need to worry about bogging down or even owning a community wi-fi or expensive server equipment to manage everyone on your property.

That’s not even scratching the surface on how you can increase your property’s NOI. In another survey made in 2022 by Rent., the participating 1,546 renters claimed they would be willing to pay between $10-50 more per month to have smart tech implemented. This survey matches the NMHC study that showed Millennial and Gen Z renters (who are making up an increasing percentage of those going into multi-Family apartments) would pay more to live in apartments with said amenities.

Why Geokey?

Geokey’s mission focuses on more than just providing people with a secure and simple access control solution. Our main goal is to come alongside property managers and business owners to provide an affordable turnkey solution that protects your assets, keeps money in your pocket, and helps provide you with another way to generate income.

Geokey is a software company that has had the privilege of coming alongside some exceptional hardware manufacturers to help provide you with a customizable solution that fits your needs. We want to partner with you as we work to unlock the world around you.

The Global Market is Demanding Better Access Control Solutions

The Global Market is Demanding Better Access Control Solutions
(And Where Geokey fits in to Provide)

With all the turmoil and uncertainty in the world today, people are looking for security more than ever. Whether you live in an apartment, run a small business, live in the city or halfway across the world, people are looking for more and better ways to keep their property safe and under control. This becomes very apparent if you look at the global market, and how market trends are revealing a growing interest in access control solutions.

According to Bloomberg, the forecast for electronic access control solutions predicted an increase, going from being worth 32,817.5 million in 2021 to 67,243.2 million by 2028, making a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of about 12.7%. It is important to note that while this is on a global scale, North America remains set as one of the top regions to be affecting the market value.

There are a lot of factors driving this data and what is spurring the demand for control access solutions. When it comes to the residential and business owner segment of the market, the biggest driving factors for investing in control access is an uptick in organized crime, vandalism, and burglaries, and looking at the data it is not hard to see why. According to the Council on Criminal Justice, taking the statistics from 29 cities in the United States, burglaries have risen 6% from 2021 to 2022, with larcenies rising by nearly 20% in that same time frame. It is no wonder that people want to make sure their property is secure and are searching for better ways to control who is utilizing their space.

In that same forecast article, a challenge in the rising market is also presented: people are not aware that cloud-based access control exists. People will stick with what they know, and for many that is the classic key and lock solution or, as of more recently, a card/fob reader. It was noted that a lot of the market focused on an increasing demand of these card/fob readers, with consumers asking specifically for “smart cards” that allow the company to track who enters a space and when.

What does this data have to do with Geokey?

The trends show that people are searching for better access control and security, even going as far as to narrow down how property owners want to be able to track who is on their property and when. And while people are still sticking with and looking to old access control solutions, people are slowly coming around to third-generation cloud-based systems. It is in this slowly awakening market that Geokey steps in. Our software can do what the market is demanding and more, providing a consumer-friendly and simple way of managing property without sacrificing the air-tight security people want. Geokey’s software, with its hardware integrations and flexibility, can do the job of traditional keys and fobs and so much more… all from your smart phone!

As more people become aware of cloud-based and geolocation solutions to access control, the demand for such solutions will grow, which is where Geokey and its hardware partners can step up and provide.

Smart Technology is Essential for Existing Multifamily Assets

Today’s renters are seeking amenities that offer safety and convenience.

The National Apartment Association and National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) both report that renters are most interested in security-related amenities, while National Real Estate Investor magazine says the “number-one item on most renters’ wish lists is technology focused on convenience.”

In NMHC’s recent survey, smart door locks/mobile access topped renters’ wish lists for their current or next property.

As the popularity of multifamily homes rises, owners of existing multifamily assets need smart home technologies to ensure that their listings stand out amongst the competition.

With Geokey, existing multifamily buildings can be easily retrofitted for smart technology without a significant investment in infrastructure. Offering mobile access control makes a big impression for a relatively nominal cost.

Past trends in technology prove the importance of getting ahead of the curve with smart technology for multifamily assets. Think about it. Smartphones have simplified our lives in extraordinary ways, but that wasn’t always the case.

Generation X can remember when cellphones were a commodity only accessible to the wealthy. Do you remember first generation cellphones? They were bulky monstrosities that only the rich could afford. Yet, everyone was amazed by the technology.

Look how far we’ve come in that short amount of time. Mobile phone technology has advanced exponentially, and the prices have decreased making them affordable and accessible.

Today, 97% of Americans own their own mobile phone. Our smart phones offer conveniences that have shaped our modern way of life.

Millennials and Generation Z (who currently represent the majority of the renter population) have been surrounded by technology nearly from birth. Millennials grew up during the dot-com era and Gen Z barely remembers life before cellphones, if at all!

It’s only a matter of time before smart technology is as ubiquitous as cellphones. Consumers no longer want to carry keys, key fobs, or access fobs when their phones can do it all.

Some owners of existing multifamily assets still think the startup and maintenance costs will be too high.  Those owners are likely ignoring the cost of not offering it.

Residents are choosing smart apartments over traditional listings, they are staying longer, and they’re paying more for it. Not having it can be a deal-breaker.

Based on our research, we at Geokey strongly believe that multifamily asset owners and operators who provide smart technology for their community’s scale faster, stay more competitive, retain a greater percentage of residents, and will flourish despite any potential burst of the real estate bubble.

With Geokey, smart technology is available and accessible to all multifamily assets—not just new developments and lease-ups or existing Class A properties.

Contact us today and let us show you how to retrofit your properties with this game-changing technology.

Geokey Access Control Ideal for Multi-Family Residential Buildings

Most multi-family residential buildings are accessed by a myriad of individuals on a daily basis – tenants, visitors, delivery personnel, maintenance workers, etc. Traditional methods of access are difficult to manage, expensive to maintain, and lack convenience.

Gone are the days of intrusive intercom systems, bulky key fobs, and misplaced keycards. The modern, smart way of multi-residential living is unlocking every door in your building with your mobile phone.

Geokey opens all doors—front doors, individual rooms, elevators, garages, etc. Access is granted to the right doors at the right times.

Geokey’s cloud-based solutions solve access challenges through touchless mobile entry that is convenient, economical, and secure. Real-time data and analytics provides the reporting you need to strengthen security and make managing residential properties easier than ever.

Our system differs from traditional systems because the cloud hosts the software (the brains controlling the hardware) thus eliminating the need for a physical server at the property itself.

With Geokey, you eradicate risks of technical difficulties like on-site servers going down, the inconveniences of rebooting or troubleshooting your system, and the added expenses of server maintenance and repairs.

Geokey gives owners and/or property managers control of all their facilities at the touch of their fingertips from any device.

Security doesn’t have to be complicated. That is why Geokey’s dashboard has a seamless interface for all technology levels. From sending out Geokeys to checking up on your data logs, it is easily accessible from your desktop or mobile device. Additionally, users are granted Global Administrative Rights to build out multiple facilities and control points.

Geokey integrates with any type of door or software allowing us to incorporate seamlessly to meet your needs. Since the number of users or custom schedules does not determine software costs, the costs are deferrable to the tenants.

Geokey is the product you can trust to manage your tenants, guests, and visitors. No more changing locks or worrying about who can get in your building. Geokey has you covered.

Deliveries are a cinch with Geokey. Simply give delivery persons Geokey access or designate a separate room that only Geokey users can enter. All users are tracked by who enters, at what time, and when they leave.

The future is here and it’s waiting for you to take control. Let Geokey revolutionize your multi-family residential buildings today.

Geokey Product Spotlight: Padlocks and Lock Blocks

Geokey was launched by business owners for businesses owners as a commercial mobile access solution. We were using key fobs to access our 24/7 fitness facility and we saw a need for a more modern solution to an age-old necessity: secure entry and access to offices, facilities, and property.

We recognized that we could eliminate the need for key fobs and traditional keys, improve the functionality of lock blocks, padlocks, etc., and increase security and convenience by developing software that utilizes smartphone technology.

Over the years our company has grown into an award-winning operation of time-tested results for user-friendly simplicity and superior security. The hardware we use, such as padlocks and lock blocks, is a crucial component of our success.

Traditional padlocks still depend on the dial or rotary locks, but Geokey integrates with smart models that make unlocking padlocks easier. With smart hardware, you can allow access to specific people and monitor their access all while maintaining or even improving the tough protection of traditional hardware.

Geokey’s hardware partner, Nokē, is a highly reputable and respected company whose products fully align with our commitment to quality and excellence.

Geokey Going Green

Geokey: Mobile Access Offers Health-Conscious and

Environmentally Sustainable Security Options

The national pandemic brought health-consciousness to the forefront of our daily living. In a previous post, we discussed society’s heightened awareness about cleanliness and germ-spread prevention and how touch-free mobile access solutions drive the new normal for accessing business facilities.

In addition to the health benefits, another important reason why more and more business owners are getting rid of traditional keys, plastic keycards and key fobs and switching to mobile access credentials is environmental sustainability.

Sustainability, or “going green,” is the avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance. As the green movement continues to raise its profile to consumers, it is increasingly important for businesses to preserve natural resources, minimize hazardous substances, and decrease energy usage.

Geokey’s mobile access, created instantly through an app, saves materials and energy that would normally be spent making duplicate keys/keycards every time they get lost, misplaced, or need to be copied. Less Resources = Cleaner Living.

Consumers want optimal living for this generation without compromising the wellbeing of tomorrow’s generations. Companies that use sustainable options help make the world a better place to live now and in the future. It’s the responsible way of doing business today and consumers take notice.

Geokey is committed to being the best global citizens we can be by offering security solutions that greatly reduce environmental waste through the complete elimination of physical keys/keycards and key fobs. Our security solution requires no material processing and conserves natural resources all while enhancing performance and reliability standards. We deliver convenience and security without compromising the environment.

Geokey is efficient and cost effective. It reduces energy costs for the environment and for your business. If you’re more efficient, you save money.

We work within your budget to properly plan and implement solutions designed to offer convenient mobile access while maintaining the appropriate level of security for your business.

If you are interested in more environmentally sustainable security solutions for your small business, get in touch with us at


At Geokey, our goal is to provide our customers with the most effective and up-to-the-minute technology available to best meet your security needs. From the ease and simplicity of mobile access to the efficiency of our online portal and data analytics software, we ensure successful security solutions that incorporate seamlessly into your life.

As security professionals, we value the importance of continually educating ourselves on the latest advances in technology and researching best practices. One way we accomplish this is by attending security events at which manufactures and vendors in the security industry showcase their products and service.

This month we are attending the industry’s top security conference, the International Security Conference & Exposition also known as ISC West. This annual expo is the largest converged security trade show in the U.S., covering everything from video surveillance, access control, biometrics, smart home, public security, drones/robotics, and more.

At ISC West we can examine the newest security products and technology, network with colleagues and security professionals, and gain valuable training and knowledge to better serve our customers. Over 1,000 exhibitors will present cutting-edge products covering access control, biometrics, IT & cyber security, public security, and more.

For example, one educational session to be presented is a case study on how security robots are being used at the FedEx facility in Memphis. They’ve integrated security robots to enhance their manned guard force in order to protect their hub of national and international shipping.

There will be many other topics covered like how the security industry will recover and grow once the pandemic subsides; and the next generation of access control – how artificial intelligence, biometrics, etc., will drive the tech evolution.

One example of the innovative products that will be featured at the expo is Teleportivity, the winner of the Judges’ Choice Award in the show’s 2021 New Product Showcase Awards. This app-like “video intercom’” experience can be accessed anywhere by using a QR code. It allows a user to scan a QR code with a smartphone, and access a whole range of self-serve experiences with no hardware needed, and no app required for the user.

Many other new innovations have been emerging during this time of major market transition and disruption, and we strive to stay on top of it all to ensure that our customers have the greatest peace of mind for all your security needs.

Our number one mission is to keep you, your business, and your assets safe and operating as effortlessly as possible all with the greatest convenience and efficiency available.

At Geokey, we work within your budget to properly plan and implement solutions designed to meet all of the security needs for your business. For more information contact,

How to plan a touchless mobile access control system for your apartment building

Do you lose sleep sometimes thinking about things that could happen at your apartment building?

Burglaries, vandalism, and disgruntled ex-tenants can wreak havoc on your bottom line. You need the peace of mind that comes from knowing your tenants and property are protected at all times.

So you can sleep a little easier tonight. Touchless mobile access control is here, and offers the easiest, safest access control.

What is touchless mobile access?

Touchless mobile access is a means of unlocking entryways electronically and wirelessly without using physical keys, fobs, keypads, or other surfaces users would have to touch.

Some companies with high security needs use retinal scans and facial recognition as part of their touchless access strategies.

But you don’t need Mission: Impossible access control to keep your apartment buildings secure. You just need a way to give your tenants — and only your tenants — touchless access to their apartments and amenity areas that they almost can’t lose.

You’ll pay much more to replace lost physical access tools than you know

Everyone loses things. Especially small items like keys, keycards, and fobs.

Aside from heading for landfills and open waters, the costs to you as the owner of a rental property are multifold. Replacement fobs cost anywhere between $150 and $400. You can charge the tenant for a replaced fob, but you don’t need the hassle. Not to mention the wait.

And during a pandemic or flu season, who wants to borrow keycards or fobs that have been passed around?

Why you need a touchless mobile access control system for your apartment building

1. It’s much less likely to spread disease

Raise your hand if you cringe a little when you have to touch the grimy keypad on a gas station credit card reader.

True, your phone is dirtier than you think. But at least you know where your hands have been and when you last washed them. That’s more than you know about who’s been touching the elevator buttons, garage door openers, and keypads to get to the laundry facilities.

Help keep everyone safe and minimize risk of infection by implementing a touchless access solution.

2. You won’t have to replace lost key fobs

People lose small objects all the time. Chances are, if you give your tenants fobs to get in and out of their homes, they’ll attach them to their keyrings. Which just means they’ll lose fobs just as easily as keys.

Then you have to waste time arranging replacements and pay high replacement costs.

You don’t have to do that anymore.

All you need to do with mobile access is send a key through your app to the user’s device through text or email. How much simpler can it get?

3. You can manage access from your dashboard at home

Cloud-based mobile access control puts your dashboard in front of you wherever you can find a wireless connection.

Easily add and remove authorized users. Pinpoint which entries are off-limits when, and to who. Define specific areas (geofences) and track use of each point in and out. From your lawn chair at the campfire, if you like.

Sounds great, right? And it’s easy.

How do you plan a touchless access control system?

Never go into something like this without a plan. It doesn’t have to be granular, but you ought to keep in mind a few important things.

Define your security needs

Do you need cameras in parking and reception areas? Garage door openers? Gated entry electronic readers?

Some of your needs will depend on location. But they’ll also depend on the number of units and adult tenants you have, and whether you have tenants-only amenities like gym facilities.

They definitely shouldn’t be able to get into maintenance areas or into company vehicles. Is there a pool area that should restrict access to children after dark?

You’re probably getting a sense of how much time it could save you if you didn’t have to drive around and unlock doors in person.

If a tenant loses their phone, they can also get their credentials on their tablet.

Discover your access control options

There are so many choices, but how do you narrow them down? If it seems overwhelming, think first about what you’re trying to do and go from there.

Do you want to track users and gain insights from advanced analytics?

Do you want to be able to unlock doors from home, or anywhere else? Then you need a cloud-based application. So how do you find a mobile access company that makes it all that simple for you?

Why Geokey is your premier choice in touchless mobile access control

Geokey, the leading mobile access company, is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform with an open API. That means our platform can integrate with other products and applications.

Partnering with other hardware and software solution providers is how Geokey gives you so many options when designing your own access and security strategy.

Hardware and software solutions for every security and access function

We’ve partnered with the best hardware and software vendors to bring you the highest level of customization available anywhere.

We integrate with Axis Communications and Nokē access control hardware like locks, network controllers, relay modules, cameras, audio devices, and other system devices.

You can even connect your accounts from your favorite business applications like Stripe, Google Workspace, and Microsoft 365 and have access to more tools from the same place.

Send secure credentials via text or email

Register geokeys to designated devices to enhance security. You can grant or limit access to certain entries by credentials, and even further by date and time.

You can also automate certain notifications to send directly to your tenants’ mobile devices at certain days and times. Which is useful for important announcements and reminders.

Advanced analytics and contact tracing

See who is accessing which entries and when. If there’s ever a problem, it’s easy to see who was in the associated geofence during that time.
