About Doordeck

Founded in 2015, Doordeck began as a hardware company, trying to solve an accessibility problem of a wheelchair-bound friend. They wanted to figure out a way that visitors could access their friend’s apartment without the person needing to go to the door to grant entry using the centrally located interface.

So the duo built a piece of tech that rang the person’s smartphone when an outsider rang the external intercom.

Then, in 2017, Doordeck wanted to combat the amount of waste involved in ripping out existing access control hardware, so they pivoted to a SaaS only solution. And so Doordeck became a manufacturer agnostic API that sits on top of any existing security system.

The power of Doordeck is not simply in its many smart features, but in its ability to seamlessly aggregate data from multiple buildings, no matter the pre-existing access control system in place.
