Door State Notifications for Communal Doors

Door State Notifications (DSN) is an optional feature for the Latch R that sends notifications to property managers based on door states. Notification emails can be configured to be sent to property managers when doors are left ajar or opened without a valid credential. This is a great way to improve the security of a building without hiring additional staff. Please note that additional sensors are required for this functionality.

Door States:

  • Door Ajar: When a door is left ajar, a notification email can be configured to be sent after 30, 60, or 90 seconds.
  • Door Still Ajar: If the door remains ajar, an email can be configured to be sent every 5, 10, or 15 minutes.
  • Door Breached: When a door is opened without a valid credential, a notification email is sent.
  • Door Secure: When a door is not in the Door Secure state and the door is then closed, a Door Secure notification is sent.

Automatic Unlock and Automatic Relock:

Two additional features that are an advantage of the sensors used for DSN, are automatic unlock and relock. The Latch R can be set to automatically unlock when it detects motion on the secure side of the door, allowing egress without manual intervention like pushing a button. The Latch R can also be set to automatically relock as soon as the door has been opened, preventing additional people from entering through an unopened door.
