Make an Upgrade: eGenius Powered by Latch Makes Retrofitting Easy

Don’t compromise on functionality or convenience. The eGenius is a single motion egress interconnect lock that can easily retrofit into most existing buildings. It perpetuates a unique and differentiated resident experience by providing a convenient and secure entry and exit. With its innovative features, including a numeric display, back and enter buttons, and faster upgrade times, you can upgrade your access control system without sacrificing residents' experience.

Powered by the Latch Lens

The eGenius features an enhanced Latch Lens that connects each device to the power of LatchOS. Boasting a numeric display, back and enter buttons, and faster upgrade times, this improved Latch Lens not only offers superior functionality, but also a more eco-conscious approach. The eGenius Latch Lens uses 39% less plastic and produces 44% less e-waste compared to previous devices, making it a sustainable choice for businesses looking to reduce their environmental impact.

Convenient ways to open any door.

Like all Latch devices, the eGenius can be unlocked several ways. Users can unlock using the Latch App on their smartphone or Apple Watch, with a doorcode, or using physical credentials like a keycard for unparalleled flexibility.
