Biometrics are becoming a popular luxury home feature thanks to innovations in identity management and accessibility. Earlier this month, Troon Pacific announced biometrics as a selling point in its latest luxury home, brought to market recently in San Francisco listing at $13 million.
Now, security solutions provider ZKTeco is reporting that it’s biometric access control is also making the housing market safer, more convenient and extra high-tec. the company has stated that the deployment is part of a home automation system in the luxury residential building, Katherine Anália Franco, located in São Paulo, Brazil.
The focus of the deployment is, as the building’s description would lead you to believe, is luxury. Future residents at the building will be able to authenticate as they enter their home and preferential home comfort will begin. The blind will open automatically, the TV can be set to turn on to a favorite channel, climate control settings will take effect and lights will turn to ideal preset conditions.
ZKTeco has provided nine Multibio700 access control devices for these purposes, as well as 64 units of its F6 product.
The company’s biometric access control solutions aren’t just for homeowners in the lap of luxury, recently findBIOMETRICS reported on a deployment of ZKTeco’s in Jakarta that found its identity management technology securing an office building.
Now, with the ZKAccess 6.0, Wisma BSG’s building is now able to efficiently manage its elevator system, locking out unauthorized personnel by design. An employee’s registered identity is tied to the floors and elevators that they are cleared to use. If a person isn’t registered in the system, their options are severely limited.
In April, findBIOMETRICS spent a full month examining the topic of physical access control. To learn more about this diverse application of biometric technology, check out the Physical Access Control Month Roundup.
