Example applications for your smart home

Enjoy a new sense of living with an ekey fingerprint scanner


✔ Event "Coming home"


Finally you can relax when you get off work! You come home and with just a swipe of your finger the door opens, the blinds go up, the light turns on, and the alarm system is deactivated.



✔ Event "Vacation program"


Are your bags already packed and waiting at the door? Feel free to leave your key at home – you always have your finger on hand! With the ekey fingerprint scanner, you can lower all of the blinds, turn off the light and activate the alarm system, for example.




✔ Event "Family-friendly house"


Already at the age of 6 years, children can make full use of the fingerprint scanner since it recognizes the fingers regardless of growth. Depending on the circumstances, customized events can be defined for the little ones.



✔ Event "Alarm finger"


Prepare for all eventualities! Store an "alarm finger" just to be safe. With this, you could open the door in case of an emergency while discreetly triggering a silent alarm.
