Zentra’s offerings are unified by a single software platform with integrated hardware and support services to enhance back-end efficiency for property managers and improve the overall resident experience.

“We could not be more excited to launch Zentra as part of Allegion’s portfolio,” said Dave Ilardi, Senior Vice President and President of Allegion Americas. “With Zentra, our company is taking another step towards our vision of seamless access and a safer world.  It enables properties to establish and strengthen their electronic access capabilities and modernize, benefiting both residents and property owners.”  


Zentra says its suite of solutions makes managing properties simpler and living there more enjoyable through the following benefits: 

  • One system to unify and manage complete property access 
  • Mobile authentication for authorized individuals

“Residents’ lives are full of movement, constantly accepting deliveries, coordinating in-home or on-location services, welcoming visitors and so much more,” said John Goodwin, Vice President and General Manager of Multifamily Access of Zentra.

Zentra is focused on simplifying the whole experience of selecting, installing and using smart access solutions for multifamily buildings to drive higher adoption in the market and deliver increased return on investment for property managers and owners.
