Since Latch was founded in 2014, we’ve been on a mission to make multifamily buildings better for everyone. What began as more flexible access and access management has grown into so much more.
Today, we’re proud to unveil LatchOS, a full-building operating system that manages every user, device, and capability within an apartment building. Our smart access system has evolved into a complete building ecosystem designed to make building operations easier. With a menu of customizable smart-building solutions, LatchOS brings to life a connected, smart-building experience.
With six distinct solutions—including smart access, flexible connectivity, visitor and delivery management, smart apartment devices, video security, and workflow management—LatchOS is a next-generation software solution that powers a broad ecosystem of smart building devices and services. LatchOS was designed to ensure that residents, building operators, and service providers all have a seamless experience using Latch products and working with our category-leading device and service partners.
For building operators, LatchOS delivers consolidated enterprise device management, added privacy and security oversight, and customized solutions specific to their building. LatchOS even integrates with property management software like RealPage through automated syncs to increase ease and efficiency and save time, money, and headaches.
For residents, LatchOS facilitates new and time-saving conveniences all in one app, from enabling unattended and secure package delivery to remotely controlling every smart device—while also acting as the single credential to unlock every door. And at a time where contactless controls are more important than ever, LatchOS delivers a totally contactless access experience for residents, guests, and service providers alike. By controlling automatic doors, building entries, and elevators, LatchOS creates the infrastructure needed to safely move about any building.
From affordable housing in Baltimore to historic buildings in Manhattan to luxury towers in the Midwest, LatchOS scales to meet the needs of every user in every type of building. Whether accessed through the Latch App or Latch Manager, the entire LatchOS ecosystem is never more than a click or swipe away.
