Nimbio works with existing hardware, including doors and intercom solutions, making it affordable and universally compatible.

With a variety of digital key features that are part of the Nimbio platform, residents can securely buzz in family and friends or share keys with maintenance and delivery personnel from anywhere. Nimbio’s Community Manager provides property managers a single interface that eliminates the need for onsite superintendents to support lost keys and late night lockouts. The Community Manager enables administrators to easily grant (and revoke) keys and view detailed reports about the traffic coming through each Nimbio-enabled common access point. Nimbio improves security by eliminating the risk of overshared access codes and physical keys, and the need for replacing expensive RFID cards. And Nimbio’s partnerships with leading delivery companies eliminates issues with lost or missing packages by allowing delivery personnel access to properties to deliver safely and reliably, every time.
