Next year's Monkey will nestle snugly in apartment intercoms, allowing customers to buzz in guests on their mobile devices.

The low-power Monkey will run using the intercom's built-in power supply, so batteries won't be necessary.

The app will allow users to distribute as many keys to friends or family as desired, and each individual's access level can be personalized.

The app's dashboard allows you to examine Monkey's history, tracking who's been coming and going, and when.

Adding new users will be simple, according to Locumi, and Monkey's app will have the customizable user sharing we've come to expect from smart locks.
