Latch Access Control System

Guide for using the Latch Access Control System with Seam

Overview

Seam integrates seamlessly with the Latch management platform. Property managers and owners use the Latch access control system (ACS) to control access across their properties. Latch enables them to manage who has access to which spaces and when, view access history, and set up and manage multiple users and guests.

The Seam integration for Latch enables you to automate the creation of residents and the issuing of credentials to these residents. Within these credentials, you specify the entrances to which the residents have access and the access schedules.

Latch enables you to install wireless door locks and intercom systems in your building. This low-cost solution does not require the hard-wired Latch hub to provision and use mobile keys. However, if you want to provision PIN codes remotely, you do need to install the Latch hub.


Latch ACS Resources

The Seam ACS schema consists of a series of resources that interact intuitively, enabling you to use the Seam API to manage your Latch ACS in a logical, efficient manner. Latch is a credential-based ACS, so you create ACS users and then grant them access permissions using credentials. When you create a credential, you specify the ACS user to which to assign the credential, as well as the allowed entrances and the start and end times for the access schedule.

The following diagram shows the Seam resources for a Latch ACS and the relationships between these resources:

The following table provides a brief description of each of the Seam resources for the Latch ACS:
