Application examples for your smart home

Enjoy a new comfort of living with an ekey fingerprint scanner

Event “Coming home”

Finally start the evening in a relaxed manner! You come home and with just one finger the door opens, the shutters are raised, the light is turned on and the alarm system is deactivated.

Event “Family-friendly house”

Even children from about 6 years of age can use the ekey fingerprint scanner without restrictions, as it recognizes the fingers despite growth. Depending on the circumstances, individual events can be defined for the little ones.

Event “Vacation program”

You’re standing by the door with your bags packed? Leave your key at home – your finger is always with you! With the ekey fingerprint scanner, for example, you could lower all blinds, switch off the light and activate the alarm system.

Event “Alarm Finger”

Prepare for all eventualities! Save an “alarm finger” for security. With this you could open the door in an emergency situation and at the same time trigger a silent alarm unnoticed.

Find your ideal combination!
