Howdy - you can do all these things if the protocols used with the apartment gate and work door are the same as those used by the ring. This isn't always possible as some versions of wireless card use different frequencies for communication, and so you're going to have to look into it a little yourself.
As things stand, you can get a compatible apartment door lock and you can unlock your phone with the 2016 ring which doesn't do payments. At the moment I'm not able to say whether the new payment ring will allow these things because I haven't had one for testing.
Perhaps @johnyma22 can weigh in on this.
I don't think that you'll be able to use the new payment ring for the gate or the work door, but I could be completely wrong on this.
Hi, First off, I moved your post into a new thread, as it wasn't related to the thread you posted in.
Secondly, How are you currently opening the gate? I've seen (movies) people use a garage door fob or using a pincode lock on the side.
I think it's safe to say that the gate installers won't get you a nfc enabled access point unless they have such a service/device readily available to them, Which means that you'll either have to find a service that does or roll your own.
If you haven't already- which should have been your first step, give them a call and see if they provide alternative ways of opening the gates.
@didgesteve Thanks for the info! I figured you couldnt do it but it couldn't hurt to ask. Il wait for the payment ring to be released. Just wish it looked a little cooler and not like a piece of plastic. A little carbon fiber would do it good. Anyway Thanks again!
