YOUR BTR NEWS BUZZ

EDITORS NOTE

As the dust settles on the triumphant UKAA BTR Fayre, here at TLJ Access Control we’d like to say a big “thank you” to all those delegates we met on the day. We were exhibiting as part of the Tech Innovation Partnership with fellow UKAA members SmartRent and Quadient. Together, we represent a seamless approach to smart technology in BTR and co-living settings.

That brings us neatly on to the topic of this edition of News Buzz: integration. TLJ’s access control systems work with all major proptech providers and smart building apps. From car park barriers to voice & video intercom, parcel & mailbox smart lockers and smart door locks, we’re proud of our “street to sofa” solution.

Our electronic door locks and access control systems are not only state-of-the-art in terms of security, safety and aesthetic features, but also optimised for clean, contactless operation. All TLJ’s locks and readers can be operated by smartphone via Mobile Keys technology, with total Handsfree operation available.

It’s not all about product however; at TLJ we’re equally committed to giving the highest levels of service. From planning and quotation, through installation, commissioning and after sales support, everything is provided in-house. Put simply, we take away the pain of specifying electronic access control!
For more information, call us on 01482 8320334 or drop us a line at enquiry@tljlimited.com

We hope you enjoy the latest edition of News Buzz.

Best wishes,

The TLJ Team

THIS WEEK’S UKAA NEWS BUZZ SPONSOR:

Digital Integration for Smart Buildings

TLJ’s electronic access control and smart door locks integrate seamlessly with all major building control systems and software applications. We’re constantly adding IoT and smart integrations – all controlled via a single smartphone app for the ultimate in user convenience. Allowing resident access to their apartment and communal areas, whilst controlling visitor, staff and contractor movements through the building, is a major advantage for the operator too.
