PTI Security Systems, a provider of access-control and security solutions for the self-storage industry, has partnered with Banyan Hills Technologies to bring an end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) cloud platform to market. IoT is the interconnection of computing devices that enables them to send and receive data via the Internet. The PTI Core cloud platform will be released during the first half of 2018. It’s designed to enhance “customer experience and drive world-class operational excellence into all connected facilities,” according to a press release.
Currently in beta testing, the product includes centralized data, an enterprise-level view of operations, online access and real-time software updates, reports and device notifications, the release stated.
“Everything we’re developing at PTI—from AI (artificial intelligence) to facility automation to mobile solutions—began with our customer’s needs in mind,” said Franklin Young, CEO of PTI. “All innovations from PTI must accomplish two things: create a world-class experience for each facility’s customers and maximize the operational excellence at each site. It’s really that simple. PTI Core accomplishes those goals.”
Banyan specializes in IoT. Its Canopy platform helps companies monitor and manage networks of connected endpoints including self-serve kiosks, intelligent vending, digital signs and smart lockers. “We are thrilled to be partnering with PTI Security Systems,” said Steve Latham, founder and CEO of Banyan.
PTI manufactures technology-enabled access-control and security solutions. Its product line includes access-control hardware and software, wired and wireless door alarms and mobile-access solutions. The company has installed more than 35,000 systems in 30-plus countries. It operates through two U.S. locations as well as distributors in Asia, Australia and Europe.
