With Community Boss+OpenVia, we aim to bring your community into the modern era without the burden of expensive hardware upgrades. It's innovation at its finest!

Who can benefit from Community Boss+OpenVia?

Our solution is an ideal choice for those looking to enhance their security but are constrained by the budget for new hardware. While some recently constructed properties boast modern access control systems, the overwhelming majority of properties operate on legacy systems that won’t allow for deep integration with software services like Community Boss. Community Boss paired with OpenVia is especially suited for updating mid-rise and garden-style communities.

“Steep hardware and installation costs prohibit many older garden-style communities from implementing new smart technology,” says Joel DuChesne, Co-founder at Community Boss. “We’re excited to team up with OpenVia to provide affordable, permit-based access control for both parking and amenities. Together, we can help these communities modernize their building and shared space access with minimal investment.”

OpenVia’s team is very excited to partner with Community Boss and looks forward to activating properties together. Read more about our partnership in the official press release
