Residential Biometrics: It’s About Time
Providing security to multiple units in a mixed-use, commercial, or residential building is challenging. With so many people coming and going, it can be difficult for management to keep up. There are deliveries, residents, and guests constantly entering and exiting — it can be a serious challenge. Biometrics can help!
Biometric technologies such as retinal scanners, fingerprint scanners, facial recognition, and voice recognition systems have become increasingly common in business and industrial access control systems. But how can using this technology in a high-rise or multi-tenant residential setting help? And what advantages does biometric technology have over older access systems like key cards and fobs? Biometric technologies offer much stronger safeguards, cleaner ease of use, and much-improved efficiency over older technologies. Because cards and fobs can be lost, stolen, or copied, they are a serious security risk. But with biometric technologies, your key is you. This provides an unmatched level of security and protection for a multi-tenant or high-rise residential building.
Let’s take a closer look at what biometrics can do for a multi-tenant residential building.
One of the primary reasons these newer technologies offer far better security than their traditional counterparts is that a person’s “key” cannot be stolen or transferred to someone else. No more lost or forgotten keycards, no password to remember, just straightforward, safe, and controlled access with the scan of the eye, the face, a finger, or the sound of your voice. Because of this increased and more personal security, biometric technologies are far less susceptible to fraud and identity theft.
For the end user, the convenience of biometric access technology is unparalleled. Never again will a resident or tenant forget their key or get locked out—no digging in their purse for keys. When going out for a jog, taking a key ring with you is unnecessary. All a resident needs is their finger, face, or retina, and they have access to the building and their unit. Access to the building is quick and easy by simply scanning their biometric information. Overall, installing biometric authentication systems in a multi-tenant residential building can enhance security and streamline access, ultimately improving the overall living experience for residents.
Better Access Control
Biometric authentication systems in a multi-tenant residential building can significantly improve a building’s access control. Firstly, biometric systems provide a fast and efficient way of granting access to the building. Tenants and authorized individuals can easily enter, whereas unauthorized individuals are sent to security. In addition, biometric systems can be integrated with other building management systems, such as elevators and parking garages, further increasing security and improving a building’s overall access control. This can also save time and effort for management and building staff, who no longer have to deal with lost keys or access cards or spend time issuing new ones.
Biometrics in Residential
So, if you’re serious about security for your multi-tenant building, consider adding biometric technologies as a robust security measure. They will add unparalleled security and improve your tenant’s ease of access. On top of that, biometrics offers an attractive, upscale, futuristic touch that increases a building’s attractiveness and “cool factor.” Whether it’s a new building or a system upgrade, biometric technologies can add a serious boost to your building’s security plan.
