Comfort consists of small things. Some of them we got used to almost from birth, others come with the development of technologies — and now we have no idea how we lived without them before.
At the head of progress are most often large companies that can offer the consumer a range of services that not only simplify life, but also make it safer.
In Russia, one of such leaders is Rostelecom, which this year is launching its new product Rostelecom Key with face recognition function — a residential complex in Sochi was chosen for its pilot launch. All the details are in the material of the own correspondent of the portal of the South.ru, who attended the presentation.
All in one
The unified platform of digital services “Rostelecom Key” includes a smart intercom, integrated video surveillance and wireless Internet in the courtyard of the house. In the future, a smart barrier and a smart meter will be added, which will automatically collect meter readings and transmit them to the management company.
The main “feature” of the product is the “Smart Intercom” service with a Face ID system, or a face recognition system. Rostelecom became the first company in Russia to introduce such a service. And if the “Smart intercom” is an ordinary intercom with a video surveillance camera built into the panel, then the Face ID system identifies the person who approached the intercom from the database of residents and opens the door only to those who really live in the house, spending no more than a second on the identification process. Now, to get home, a person does not even have to pull his hands out of his pockets, which is especially valuable in a pandemic.
The wide-angle video camera of the smart intercom allows you to see everyone who wants to enter the house — the image is transmitted to the application installed on the phone. The user also has the ability to generate temporary access codes with a validity period of 24 hours, which can be issued, for example, to a courier, guests or a doctor. Another indisputable plus is the archive of records stored in encrypted form in the Rostelecom cloud. It will allow you, if necessary, to see who entered the entrance and at what time.
The intercom will also support parents of young children. With its help, the entrance doors can be opened without leaving the child, if, for example, he is sleeping. To do this, you will need to make just one click in the mobile application. Moreover, it will become easier to monitor children, always be aware of when they returned home from school, section or after a walk with friends. If there are elderly people in the family who are not used to using a smartphone, you can install a handset in the apartment and get a magnetic keychain.
Rostelecom Key allows residents of closed cottage settlements or residential complexes to leave their homes or apartments and move around the internal territory without keys, for example, go to the pool, without taking additional cards with them. The convenience of the new system has already been appreciated by the residents of the Sunny Hill complex in Sochi, on the basis of which the pilot was launched.
“We always try to use the most advanced and innovative technologies in construction. When we learned that Rostelecom has an ecosystem that closes several strategically important points for the residential complex at once, we immediately decided to use it at home. No problems were detected during the month of operation — the test period was passed perfectly. Residents who are already using the system are satisfied with the technologies that really work”,- underlined Yuri Bogdanov, Director for the development of new solutions of the developer company.
Having tested the new system, which includes entrance surveillance cameras, outdoor surveillance cameras and cameras on the gate, the company plans to install it in other houses that it will build in the future.
“We also use this video surveillance system to control the territory on playgrounds — so that children can pass here unhindered, and strangers can not. The intercom recognizes children even of short stature and opens the gate for them. This is a great convenience. They can come to the playground and play on their own”,- the representative of the developer added.
Using the key generation function will allow parents to give access to playgrounds to their friends and acquaintances so that they can come with their children. And video surveillance will allow you to make sure at any time that the child is on the playground and everything is fine with him.
In the near future, Rostelecom plans to supplement the digital ecosystem of a residential complex in Sochi with a smart barrier. It is able to recognize the license plates of cars and automatically open the barrier for the entry and exit of vehicles located in its database. The image from the barrier camera can also be seen on the smartphone screen, which only requires Internet access. The functionality and the list of solutions included in the system is constantly expanding, which makes it more efficient, and the management of smart services is also as convenient as possible.
