Comelit: Door Entry with Voice Control and Facial Recognition
Comelit Group’s Mini Handsfree Wifi Monitor can now be integrated with Amazon Alexa, and offer high-performance facial recognition technology. The Italian door manufacturer launched the kits as an internal wireless upgrade to its exclusive Simple Bus system, alongside complementing Quadra ViP and iKall metal external door entry solutions.
Simple to retrofit, the Mini Handsfree Wifi system allows Alexa to announce that someone is at the door. And with facial recognition enabled, the new functionality also allows homeowners to identify who is at the door.
"There’s no denying that voice control is the future," says Justin Hawkesford, Comelit Operations & Technical Manager. "The technology will continue to drive and shift to every impact on every aspect of our lives, and in our position, as a forward-thinking premier door specialist, we need to prepare and enable our products accordingly. The Mini Handsfree Wifi system was launched to fit a mobile connected lifestyle. The new features of Amazon Alexa control and facial recognition demonstrate our commitment to offering futureproof technology, without compromising security or style. We have also kept to our pledge of ensuring simple installation and configuration, to create a seamless retrofit opportunity for homeowners to benefit from smart door entry.”
The Mini Handsfree Wifi Kit is designed with ease of installation in mind, with a clear interface allowing a connection between its monitor and configuration with Amazon Alexa to be achieved in just a few steps.
With colour monitors and indicator LEDs for incoming calls, door open, privacy and pending messages as standard, homeowners will also always be able to receive and answer calls from video door entry on their chosen smartphone or tablet, via the latest updated version of the Comelit App.
Comelit is also hosting a series of webinars throughout July to guide installers through the requirements to enable control of Comelit devices with Amazon Alexa.
