Many apartment buildings still have a traditional doorbell – a doorbell that no longer meets the standards of modern residential comfort. So, if you’re not at home, you have no idea who’s at the door. Your online orders end up with your neighbours. Opening the door remotely is not an option. And the safety of residences is more and more jeopardised. That's why apartment building owners invest in smart doorbells.
Let's summarize the main benefits.
Direct communication with visitors via your smartphone
The newest generation of doorbell panels connects the visitor directly to the resident’s smartphone. After all, residents are increasingly on the move and want to be accessible no matter where they are, even during their day trip to the coast or on their holiday abroad.
Safe access for couriers
A smart doorbell equipped with a separate courier bell instructs couriers to select the name of the resident on the touch screen so that the resident can then open the door, at any time of the day or night, using his or her smartphone. The bell records images of all couriers who present themselves and saves the images for 14 days. If the entrance hall has a smart parcel box, then the courier will be instructed to deliver the parcel directly into the parcel delivery box.
Quick access for residents
Residents can open the front door of the building simply by swiping their resident’s badge on the doorbell. So forgetting your keys is no longer an issue. You can just open the door with your smartphone.
A vibrating signal
Another benefit when compared to the traditional doorbell is that you can choose a vibrating signal on your smartphone. This is handy for residents in a service flat, for example, who are hearing impaired or deaf. And, it is easy for people with reduced mobility to communicate and open the front door using their smartphones, without having to get up and open the front door for care providers or other visitors.
Calling the lift
Waiting for the lift is a commonly occurring frustration for residents. A smart doorbell calls the lift for the resident as soon as he or she enters the building. This way the lift is waiting for the resident instead of the resident waiting for the lift. And, your guests are given a warm welcome.
