Introducing the Nokē Hardware

An overview of the different types of hardware/devices that are used in the Nokē Smart Entry system.

Our Nokē Smart Entry system is truly changing the self-storage access control game. Our Smart Entry is a Bluetooth electronic lock and total access control system that allows your customers to easily access your self-storage facility and their unit from their smart device. Each facility has its own unique setup, which means that different Nokē devices are used accordingly.

The Nokē Smart Entry system incorporates the following network hardware:


The Nokē Screen® and the NokēPads® are responsible for managing access to the facility's primary entry points, including pedestrian gates, parking entries, and interior pedestals. Furthermore, the Nokē Screens have the capability to control up to 10 floors of elevator entry points.

Nokē Screens - 

The Nokē Screen takes access control to new levels by allowing you to display your branding, custom messages, and full-color graphics to your tenants. This complete smart access control solution works everywhere a traditional access control system does, including a smarter display, round-the-clock customer support, a custom branded mobile app, and more!

The latest in the award-winning line of Noke Smart Entry products, Nokē Screen boasts a number of exciting design features, like a customizable full-graphic display screen, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and an all-in-one design that combines the controller and the keypad in a single device.

Tenants enjoy a more convenient and worry-free self-storage experience with Nokē ONE smart locks because they can now use their mobile phones to access the facility and their individual units without worrying about remembering any codes or keys. Your customers can also view access activity, share a digital key with employees, family members, or movers, and move-in to a unit whenever they’d like. Tenants can rent units online, use the app to access the facility and their units and move-in: all without having to come into the office. Nokē ONE allows self-storage owners to capture more rentals by fully automating the move-in process for tenants.

Nokē Elevate - 

Introducing the all-new Nokē Elevate automatic door operator from Janus International. This unique, innovative technology solution provides tenants with easier access to their units with automatic door opening and closing. 

Take the hassle out of processes like manual over locks and lock drilling, all while providing ultra-premium, ADA-compliant smart units.


All from the palm of your hand. Nokē Elevate works seamlessly with the Nokē Smart Entry system, which means that tenants who are in range of their door only have to tap a button within the facility's smart entry app to simultaneously unlock, open and close unit doors automatically. 

All of the technology for Nokē Elevate is built into the motor itself, so there's no need for a separate motor controller. An added bonus? This makes for quick and easy installation since there's no extra hardware to worry about. 


Because accessibility is a big deal in self-storage. ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Compliance is necessary for self-storage facilities; if they don't meet the legal requirements, there could be serious consequences. Nokē Elevate meets certain states' interpretations for ADA Compliance, which allows operators to quickly and easily achieve these requirements, while also adding an additional layer of security and convenient mobile access. 

In addition to seamless, automated mobile entry, each unit is secured with an internal electronic lock which eliminates the risk of theft by lock cutting, while the motion sensors located inside each unit provide enhanced monitoring capabilities.
