Luxembourg City went through an extended transformation, which included changes to its transport infrastructure and the creation of an entirely new ‘smart city’ district, La Cloche d'Or. The residences in the new district are exclusively high-end apartment buildings, with a modern design and integrated "smart home" features. The challenge for the property developer was to create a completely connected neighbourhood where all of the apartments are equipped with an integrated, reliable system. The same applied to the safety of residents and the protection of their property. For this reason, one of the main requirements was the ability to integrate the access control system with a Home Automation system. As a result, DOVIT, the integrator and our partner, defined the following requirements:
Thanks to the integration of 2N with Dovit’s home automation system, users can now enjoy all of the functions of their Smart Home from one unique interface, including answering visitors, opening doors and receiving notifications.
CONVENIENT AND SECURE ACCESS
Owners and tenants can securely access their apartments using an NFC/RFID reader. Once their mobile device is synced, they can simply touch the outdoor module to gain entry (their mobile can even remain in their pocket).
The 2N® IP Verso provides additional options for access technologies that can be added in the future, e.g. Bluetooth module, Fingerprint Reader module and Touch Keypad module.
2N® IP VERSO A total of 82 2N® IP Verso intercoms were installed at each of the entrances to provide secure access to over 1,200 apartments. The IP Verso was selected mainly due to its modularity, luxury design and enhanced capabilities.
2N® MOBILE KEY APP Residents only need the 2N® Mobile Key app on their smartphones. The user can then enter the door by pressing a button in the app, or at the touch of a reader.
2N® MOBILE VIDEO APP In addition, residents can monitor what is happening outside their entrance via the 2N® Mobile Video app, which also allows them to open the door from any place around the world.
The intercoms have a modern touch screen and an NFC/RFID reader, therefore using the modularity exactly according to the user requirements. In addition to the RFID cards, a mobile phone can be used for identification.
