INDIANAPOLIS, IN – May 8, 2020 – The Saffire LX-M was the chosen access solution by Rhapsody Property Management Services for its sophisticated RFID technology in a contemporary design, ease of use, flexibility and security. The Saffire LX-M Series enhances access control convenience for residents and improves operational efficiency for property managers.

“When it comes to access control, our residents are mostly focused on ease of use and security,” said Rob Martin, Senior Vice President, Rhapsody Property Management Services. “We wanted to provide one-key access for residents through an integrated system that is easily maintained and reliable.”

dormakaba’s Saffire LX-M Series mortise locking solution was installed in its Central Parc property located in Laval, Quebec that is comprised of six buildings and a community center. Central Parc’s access solutions needed to offer both security and convenience.

“The Saffire system provides several benefits,” said Martin. “We appreciate the ease of use, integration and dormakaba’s customer service. Its quality surpasses all its peers. As with any new luxury product in the market, details are important and the Saffire system allows us to have an elegant and functional aesthetic in a curated living experience.”

Available in a suite of versatile models, Saffire harmonizes with progressive building technology and amenities including the option of issuing mobile, fob, wristband or keycard credentials. Rhapsody chose dormakaba’s Saffire LX Series locking solution for Central Parc for its key advantages that include:

  • Enables mobile access that allows residents to use their smart devices to securely enter their residence, as well as perimeter, elevator, parking and other common areas
  • Features sophisticated RFID technology in a contemporary design
  • Available with elegant fascia colors, finishes and lever selections, making it versatile to complement any décor
  • Low maintenance design as the lock operates with a completely sealed, contactless reader, and batteries last up to 2 years under normal operation
  • Improves operational efficiency for property managers
  • Works as a completely scalable solution with panic bars, parking gates, and electronic access

The Saffire LX-M is managed by dormakaba Community™ access management software.
