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 "Conserving energy on vacation"


Are your bags already packed and waiting at the door? One finger is all it takes and all of the electronic appliances are deactivated, so they also get to take a break.


✔ Event "Family-friendly house"


Mom and dad can be at ease! When the child comes home from school, they are uniquely recognized by the ekey fingerprint scanner. Thanks to Somfy, the electric stove and internet cannot be used and the pool cannot be uncovered.


✔ 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.
