The Spitfire Doors team and manufacturing partner Inotherm welcomed over 600 people to the stand at this week’s Ecobuild show in London.
Our trade and consumer visitors saw Inotherm’s impressive showcase of premium aluminium doors and were introduced to Inokey, Inotherm’s innovative fingerprint door entry security system.
With door security being such a hot topic at Ecobuild this year, visitors were given the chance to see Inokey in action and discover how fingerprint recognition is a viable option for residential doors and a boost for home security.
Said one visitor, “there’s nothing to match these doors for design options and thermal efficiency and not only that, they tick every box for my security needs.”
Here we share some of the most asked questions:
HOW DOES FINGERPRINT RECOGNITION WORK?
Inokey is Inotherm’s built in fingerprint sensor. Inokey will open a heavy door in 1.2 seconds after a single short contact. This latest generation sensor incorporates Siemens technology and can even read data from a moist, dirty or greasy finger.
HOW MANY FINGERPRINTS CAN THE SENSOR RECOGNISE?
Up to 1000 and the dual relay units can operate an adjacent door e.g. a garage door from one sensor.
WILL I HAVE TO INSTALL THE FINGERPRINT SENSOR MYSELF?
If you order an Inotherm aluminium entrance door from Spitfire, we’ll explain all the options available for door security, locking and automatic opening. Whichever device you choose, your door will be delivered 100% fitted with the right sensor in the right finish with the wiring components ready to be wired to your electricity supply.
WHAT IS THERE’S A POWER CUT?
You can always use your key as a manual override.
HOW MUCH DOES A FINGERPRINT SENSOR COST?
An Inotherm aluminium front door is built to last a lifetime and at Spitfire Doors, we believe our high quality doors deserve the latest security and locking technology. Adding a fingerprint sensor will only add approximately 10% to the overall price of a door.
WILL IT COMPLEMENT MY DOOR DESIGN?
Yes, Inokey door sensors come in a range of finishes including brushed steel, polished chrome, black or gold plated stainless steel.
ARE THERE ANY ALTERNATIVES TO FINGERPRINT RECOGNITION?
You can open your front door with your security key, with a door mounted keypad or with a small remote control device.
