After evaluating several options, the building owner chose Akuvox’s intercom solution which brings cardless access control methods through easy Bluetooth-based integration with the smart lock system he adopted. The integration allowed tenants to unlock their apartment doors with more flexibility. Akuvox’s solution also included an R29C door phone at the building entrance, a C313W indoor monitor for each apartment, and a web portal for property access management.
The building owner expressed satisfaction with Akuvox’s intercom solution which eliminates the need for physical keys and cards. The solution enables self-guided apartment tours by allowing the owner to generate temporary QR codes through Akuvox’s web portal and a numeric password from the smart lock’s portal for prospective tenants. These temporary credentials enable them to enter the building via the R29C door phone and a specific apartment via the smart lock respectively. As there’s no need to be on-site, the building owner can save significant time and effort.
Besides, the cardless door-unlocking methods have addressed the owner’s concern over credential duplication, as well as the handling of lost, stolen, and found access cards. Furthermore, it’s now a simple process for the owner to update tenants’ profiles and grant them access credentials remotely on Akuvox’s web portal. The property security was increased while the costs became lower.
For tenants of Hanazono 5cho-me Mansion, the integration between E12 and the smart locks provided a cardless and touchless entry experience. As soon as an individual is authenticated through NFC or the SmartPlus app, the E12 door phone will seamlessly trigger the smart lock via BLE to unlock the apartment door, which eliminates the trouble of fumbling for keys. Additionally, as the proud winner of the iF Design Award, the Akuvox E12 door phone has added to the building’s modern style with its minimalist design and compact size.
