The Alertacall modern door entry system is internet technology enabled and sends full colour, high resolution video calls of the visitor to either a Housing Proactive touchscreen device in a resident’s property – or on to their own smartphone. Both options provide an on screen door release button.
In addition to the obvious security benefits of video door entry, the fact the resident can receive the door entry call on a device that is likely to be close to them (and not on thewall of a property which may be difficult to get to) is also highly appealing.
The advanced door entry systems offered by Alertacall provide an audit trail of all door entry activity and whether this was a resident, contractor, family member or staff member. This information can provide valuable health and safety insights. For example, data around whether someone has had any visitors, or how often someone has been in and out of their property could be used to help identify particularly at risk or isolated residents.
Many hard wired systems fixed on to the wall of a dwelling also include a door entry button, which communicate with a door entry system at the entrance to the building. This enables residents to unlock/open the front door of the building to allow visitors inside.
The requirement to replace these is because calls made by them that are answered by an alarm receiving centre may not work after Digital Switchover. This presents an excellent opportunity for housing providers to introduce lower-cost, higher specification systems that can deliver video door entry to residents using a wireless network and smart devices.
