NORCROSS, Ga.—SALTO Systems has teamed with Amazon Key for Business to provide a cloud-based solution that eliminates package delivery issues for building managers by providing safe and secure entry for Amazon delivery drivers. SALTO is a leading manufacturer of electronic access control solutions. Amazon Key for Business is a convenient, authorized entry service for Amazon deliveries.

“SALTO and Amazon Key for Business are collaborating to develop a seamless solution that can address and reduce these issues, freeing up property management to tend to more important tasks,” SALTO North America Marketing Director Steve Burk said in the announcement. “SALTO has long provided access control solutions that not only improve security, but also add convenience. We’re honored to work with Amazon Key for Business to help property managers operate more efficiently and to help ensure the security of package delivery for the buildings that rely on our electronic locks.”

SALTO provides secure access control via electronic locks and supporting software for numerous residential and commercial buildings. To incorporate the use of Amazon Key for Business, building management installs a free smart device that communicates with the SALTO controller and the Amazon delivery app. To deliver a package, the Amazon delivery driver requests access to a building upon arrival via the Amazon Key for Business app. Amazon then validates the driver’s credentials using their ID, route, GPS location and time of request, and temporary access is granted to complete package delivery to common areas of a building — like halls or mailrooms.

“Commercial and residential building managers have long spent too much time receiving and managing deliveries for residents and tenants,” added Kaushik Mani, global head, Amazon Key for Business. “And that time can add up since Amazon delivers seven days a week. We're excited to work with SALTO to install Key for Business in multi-unit buildings to streamline the delivery process and help to improve building and package security."
