Dealers and integrators serving the high-end residential market are well aware that their clientele is a discerning one. ZKTeco understands these demands and is at the ready to assist our partners serving this unique market. We offer the tech support and full suite of products and technologies needed to successfully meet the requirements of high-end residential customers. Because their homes are often quite sophisticated, their home security systems need to be equally sophisticated.
A New Kind of Gatekeeper
High-end residential security starts at the driveway/gate, which is where long-range readers are needed to control vehicular access to the residence. Well-suited for gate entry control is our model LR-UHF-12. It’s IP66 outdoor-rated with a read range of 40 feet. The LR-UHF-12 provides fast, convenient controlled access to gates, garage doors, or any application in which users don’t wish to press a call button or be interrogated by security guards. One of ZKTeco’s wealthier clients has a 5-bay car garage and is tired of his spouse and kids using “his” garage bay. So each family member has since been assigned their “own” bay and issued a corresponding ZKTeco fob which opens it, accordingly. Talk about “high-end”.
High-End Access with a Higher IQ
After accessing the driveway/gate, the next access point reached is typically the front door to the residence. For front doors, Smart door locks are typically the lock of choice for high-end homeowners. The locks provide greater door control, enabling the user to lock and unlock the door remotely, while either at home or away. Smart door locks often have multiple ways a user can “authenticate” to the lock including a PIN code, prox card or biometric (inc. fingerprint and/or face). These various “digital house keys” can also be given to authorized users including friends, extended family or utility workers. The convenience of secure yet unattended door access” is a “key” requirement in the high-end residential sector. ZKTeco offers many Smart Door locks for your installation needs.
For access control measures inside an affluent home, high-end biometric systems are usually the norm. These can encompass near and far facial recognition measures and fingerprint readers, and, for safeguarding places where keys are typically used (i.e. swimming pools, wine cellars, gun safes, etc.). A perfect fit for these applications is our Pro Series family of access control panels and readers. For example, inPulse+ is a multi-biometric reader capable of capturing and processing finger vein and fingerprint biometric data at the same time. Its infra-red light illuminates the user’s finger vein-pattern, which is then converted into a biometric template. Both the vein and fingerprint templates are then stored together in the inPulse+ embedded database for subsequent matching and verification. Ergonomic, intuitive and highly secure, inPulse+ leads us to a new era of enhancing high-end residential security with biometrics. Your end users will be happy to hear that enrollment and authentication is fast and easy.
Because high-end residential systems are exactly what they say they are – high end – most end users request that their access control systems tie into a video management system so that recorded video surveillance footage can be stored for future reference, if needed. Our ZKBioSecurity software will help you facilitate that; we’ve integrated it with C2P, a leading global provider of video event integration. With this C2P integration, customers using a single interface can search and report upon ZKBioSecurity access events which are time synchronized with VMS surveillance video. Supported VMS solutions include OnSSI, Milestone and Mirasys. C2P has many other useful features your high-end residential customers will love, including user-defined real-time event alerts, a powerful video search engine and choice of Video or Excel exports.
Elevate Your Installations to the Next Level
For most homeowners, simple stairways will do. But it’s not uncommon for some super high-end homes to come complete with an elevator or two! We’ve got you covered there, too. Designed specifically for elevator control, our EC10 panel and EX16 floor extension boards provide customers the most secure, scalable, versatile and affordable access control solution available today for elevators. Floor access can be restricted based on various user credentials including fingerprint, proximity card and/or password, and pre-defined time schedules. During normal visitor/business hours, unrestricted floor access can also be permitted via Passage mode. And, there’s more good news – our software makes the Elevator Control System super easy to manage.
Mad About Modules
High-end residential customers will want to be able to track visitors coming inside their home. Our “All-in-One” Web-based security platform software – ZKBioSecurity3.0 – supports our Pro Series of panels and readers and contains four integrated modules: Access Control, Video Integration, Elevator Control and Visitor Management. With an optimized system architecture designed for high-level biometric identification and a modern user-friendly UI, ZKBioSecurity software provides an advanced solution for a whole new user experience that your high-end residential clientele will absolutely love.
