Smart locks for smart homes /global/scaled/1111x484x0x434x1000x435/Global-References-Hotel-aa_SDL_PR_casestudies_future_park_highres3.jpg Smart door locks from Yale allow secure and keyless access to 1,700 state-of-the-art homes in Istanbul. Customer Future Park Istanbul is a complex of several high-rise buildings covering 35,000 square meters, and comprised of an estimated 1,700 smart homes, a 5-star hotel, a shopping mall, banks, multi-sports facilities, offices and restaurants. Challenge The apartments are designed around a ‘smart home’ concept with the most advanced technologies – including for access control. Solutions such as mechanical keys and locks were not an option for such an investment. Solution Project developer Hiper Gayrimenkul chose a smart door lock (model YDM 3168) from ASSA ABLOY brand Yale, with around 1,700 smart locks installed on the front door to every residential apartment. The locks provide the highest level of security at a cost-effective price. The energy-efficient smart door lock enables residents to open the door to their apartment via their smart home system, with a secure PIN or RFID smart card. The lock’s easy operation and design contributed to the choice of ASSA ABLOY’s solution. Integration of the smart door lock with the apartment’s smart home system was straightforward and wire-free. RF communication allows remote opening of the entrance door using Future Park’s smart home app.
