Features that residents, installers and building managers will appreciate

To keep up with the growing population demand of cities, analysts estimate that 4.6 million apartment units need to be built across the United States by 2030. With these homes being shared by growing families, managing visitor access can be tricky. How do you ensure that visitors feel welcome, while also keeping your perimeter security secure?

ICT video intercom

This 17” stainless steel touchscreen is likely to be the first thing people notice as they approach the apartment building. It provides an intuitive interface for visitors to communicate with tenants, building management, a concierge, or even with off-site locations.

With the Protege Mobile App, residents can see and speak to visitors or delivery people via a video or audio call, then unlock the door for them directly from their phone. No longer do you have to be in your apartment to let someone in.

The Tenancy Portal allows for user management via a single platform. Any user changes in Protege GX will automatically update in the Entry Station, and the two-way sync also provides a comprehensive audit trail so you who's let a guest into the building.

Using the Protege platform, ICT's video intercom and multifamily access control solution enables easy end-to-end management of properties. A unified system also brings cost savings, time benefits, and reducing pain points, while providing a higher level of security and true peace of mind.

Designed with the end user in mind, Protege GX offers an intuitive and user friendly interface that is loaded with features for controlling and monitoring the system from one unified platform with EliteSuite.

A one card DESFire solution enables apartment residents the flexibility of gaining access to any hardwired ICT RFID door readers found at entry points or common areas and any integrated wireless apartment locks. The benefit of this unified approach is seamless reporting for auditing purposes and easier management of residents building access. Gone are the days of three sets of keys. An ICT wireless DESFire remote can also be utilized for garage door and building access further simplifying apartment control.

A smarter home solution

The term ‘smart home’ has been around for some time. It’s been used to describe everything from lighting and HVAC control through to IoT powered electronics that automatically order more mayonnaise when you run out.

However, the reality is often a bunch of gadgets that don’t work well together, and an end user who reverts to using the light switch and walking to the store to get more mayonnaise. Multiple disparate systems not only lack continuity, they are inefficient and uneconomical.

Automation and control

That’s why Protege GX integrates with several home automation and control systems, including Savant and Crestron, to provide a simple, single-point solution that balances energy efficiency with the needs of your tenants.

Having a single unified system to manage the entire apartment complex, including common areas and amenities, parking facilities, as well as individual home residences, is not only an additional selling point, it also optimizes convenience and energy efficiency.

  • Intelligent lighting that turns on as soon as an apartment is disarmed or when motion is detected
  • Temperature sensors that adjust the thermostat based on your presence
  • Ambient light sensors that automatically adjust electronic blinds
  • Programmable functions that automatically turn off non-essential appliances when the alarm is set, and on again when the alarm is deactivated
  • Schedules that manage energy by controlling such things as towel rails so they are only on when they need to be, and hot water is turned off when residents are away for an extended period.
