POMAseiuno

alt text
Product:AirKey
Size:1-100 units
Facility type: Residential buildings for communities
Country: Italy

A new type of living is developing in the heart of Milan, a lively city bustle that merges the underlying desire for tranquility. POMAseiuno offers a new concept of living, ranging from a personal concierge to communal areas, such as rooftop garden, gym, quiet areas and massage facilities as well as play area and baby club.

All residential properties are characterised by high-quality, elegant equipment. A high-tech facility management system also enables controlling lighting, energy consumption, external shading systems, intruder alarms and CCTV using a corresponding app.

POMAseiuno planners had intended a control system for the corresponding alarm system involving three underground garage doors that are linked to access doors featuring anti-panic locks. EVVA Partner KSE installed an integrated alarm system including AirKey control system that allows authorised users to switch off the alarm and access the facility. Thanks to the vast potential of AirKey systems, cloud-based database management solved a central issue that was of fundamental significance for planners: access control for lifts including direct access to residential units. The system allows simultaneous management of shared POMAseiuno access points and private residential units which can be accessed directly from the lifts. This solution is based on maintaining two completely separate databases. This guarantees excellent security levels!

In addition to controlling U.S. doors in underground areas and lifts, the AirKey access control system has also been installed in all of Pomaseiuno's communal areas, such as gym, conference facilities, bicycle storage, etc.

After having handed over residential units, owners also have the option of integrating armoured access doors into the system and, identically to the process for lifts, use their personal database and the POMAseiuno database simultaneously. It goes without saying that all this is carried out with a single key.

The project involved the installation of 55 AirKey wall readers managed by around 600 AirKey identification media.

Country: Austria

Cemeteries are places of culture and part of city history. Friedhöfe Wien GmbH manage more than 600,000 graves on 46 cemeteries in Vienna.

With a workforce of 400 Friedhöfe Wien look after 46 cemeteries and a total of 550,000 plots. The company also is also responsible for Vienna's Central Cemetery, Europe's second largest cemetery. Working with various sites is subject to dynamic properties. Systems must allow you to grant access authorisations to different persons at different times. This brings about enormous organisational challenges and requires an access system that offers flexibility and maintains maximum security.

Managing 46 sites

With sites spread around Vienna and partly differing opening hours as well as organisational demands, the requirements to a comprehensive locking system were vast. For this reason, operators opted for the combination of the AirKey electronic locking system and 3KSplus, the outstanding maximum security system, to maintain absolute access control in every case and simultaneously act flexibly and quickly.

Clear-cut requirements

Operators had clear specifications in terms of locking system solution security. They demanded a fast and uncomplicated locking system quickly and as part of a straight-forward process in addition to a mechanical 3KSplus locking system. On a whole, the locking system for 400 employees and different user groups as well as hierarchies must be easy to manage.

AirKey installed successfully

EVVA Partner WERHAN TPS Sicherheitstechnik provided the perfect, additional solution which met all requirements as well as satisfied employees' and clients' security demands.

This object was realised with the locking system 3KSplus, which corresponds to today's 4KS locking system.

Sozialarbeit im Netz

Country: Germany

Social services are all about helping people help themselves. There are situations in life where we struggle with problems and crises caused by changes to our circumstances. And sometimes it can hit us out of the blue. "Sozialarbeit im Netz" supports and helps through tough times. Trained specialists in Mannheim provide support to persons with individual needs as mobile units and also in a day centre.

A total of 14 doors including the main entrance of the "Sozialarbeit im Netz" day centre and its accommodation facilities have been secured using AirKey. The EVVA Certified Partner "Haus für Sicherheit" took care of the installation. The partner presented AirKey in collaboration with the EVVA sales team and it immediately convinced client Joachim Schwarz. "In many cases, purely mechanical locking systems no longer meet the changed requirements in terms of facility usage. If keys are lost, it is very difficult to immediately secure the system and replace all keys as well as install new cylinders", Willi Ermentraut explains, EVVA sales team member, who was also responsible for this project. In this process, by selecting AirKey our customer opted for a modern, electronic locking system which can operate without additional identification media because NFC-compatible smartphones are used instead. "AirKey ideally matches our demands and was quickly installed to our satisfaction", Schwarz adds. The strictest requirements to a matching locking system for "Sozialarbeit im Netz" was creating the flexibility within locking hierarchies and access control for event logs. "It is also very handy that we can use our smartphones", Schwarz explains. Individual time profiles are also in use. If a smartphone or key tag is lost or stolen, both components must be electronically locked. "Our advantage is that we are using NFC with AirKey. AirKey quickly and easily adapts to organisational changes and subsequent changes to access authorisations", Kai-Uwe Plößer, EVVA Certified Partner and owner of the "Haus für Sicherheit" happily adds. There are plans to install AirKey in additional residential properties within Mannheim's city boundaries.

Solar Decathlon

Facility type: Residential buildings for communities
Country: Switzerland

The Lucerne University of Engineering & Architecture had qualified for participation in the "Solar Decathlon Europe 2014" for the House of the Future.

The interdisciplinary teams had the task of developing an architecturally and technically innovative solar house with a high level of living comfort that would be able to meet the future social, ecological and economic challenges. The houses were built in summer the of 2014 in Versailles then compared and evaluated in ten disciplines. The AirKey system by EVVA was a key element in the complex project. AirKey can be operated by NFC-enabled smartphones and satisfies all the demands of a flexible, modern high-end access control system. Thus "in house" rooms are used differently by users and accesses are created dynamically. "my room" serves as a private bedroom, "our room" is a divided space like the kitchen or living room, "your room" is the fitness room or music room and finally "space+" is the area that serves as a connecting space. Granting the accesses is at least as dynamic as the residents of this promising living concept. The project won first prize in the “Comfort Conditions” category in the end – which might have had something to do with the convenient access control system.

“St. Martin” Catholic child daycare centre in the Erfurt diocese gGmbH

Product:AirKey
Size:1-100 units
Facility type: Educational facilities
Country: Germany

Child daycare centres, such as the St. Martin Catholic facility in Thuringia require a secure and user-friendly access system for their doors. Thanks to AirKey EVVA provides a reliable, electronic solution: flexible, simple and secure.

Management of 26 child daycare centres
The supporting organisation for Catholic child daycare centres within the Erfurt diocese was established in 2010 and on 1 January 2011 it took on the responsibility for a current total of 26 child daycare centres. The managing director, Mr Aurel Bergmann, was seeking a very secure and easy-to-control
access system for individual offices, shared conference facilities and an adjacent childcare centre at the Kefferhausen headquarters. In addition to internal management solutions, the system administration also had to be available across sites – for potential extensions –
and as part of an integrated, flexible system. "We require transparency in terms of who gains access to where and at which time", Bergmann adds.

AirKey convinced us
AirKey is easy to use", explains Mr Bornemann, responsible for the installation and managing director of the locksmith business "Schuh- u. Schlüsseldienst Bornemann" from Leinefelde. "Although not much convincing was necessary here. The user-friendly interface and easy adaptation of access authorisations speak for themselves.” The church community, employees and parents now use AirKey – a smart, electronic access control system made by EVVA. "Thanks to AirKey we can now control schedules and define which user groups are granted access to certain facilities. This is paramount for the conference facilities that are also used by our external clients", Bergmann explains. The straight-forward extension options of the system were also important. There are currently also discussions about installing AirKey´in additional child daycare centres.

Simple and secure – no need for additional infrastructure
Developed and manufactured in Austria, the electronic AirKey system offers a flexible solution to the supporting organisation of St. Martin child daycare centres. At present, access to the facilities and the adjacent child daycare centre is protected by a total of 12 AirKey cylinders and one AirKey double cylinder. On the basis of legal stipulations, two of these cylinders have been equipped with an anti-panic function. The initial equipment for the six user groups includes 50 AirKey key tags, 100 KeyCredits and a coding station for programming. "Designated administrators can now send keys online. And they need nothing but a smartphone or the coding station, Internet access and an AirKey cylinder", Bornemann adds. It is just as quick and simple to once again revoke access authorisations in the online administration.

Neuroth Medical Division trusts AirKey

Facility type: Offices
Country: Austria

Neuroth has been actively promoting "better hearing, better living" as their message since 1907 throughout the world to boost its customers' quality of life. For the family–owned business, people and their hearing are at the core – just like innovation. For this reason, there was only one innovative access control solution for Neuroth Medical Division in 1050 Wien: AirKey by EVVA.

Better hearing for more than 105 years

Quality and service are an integral part of Neuroth's corporate philosophy. Each hearing aid and each earpiece is indivudally fitted and produced in a complex manufacturing process using modern 3D printing technology and manual finishing in our own technology and logistics centre in Styria. The reason? every ear is as unique as a fingerprint.

Neuroth Medical Division

For more than 60 years, Neuroth Medical Division has been working with ear, nose and throat specialists as well as audiological departments at teaching hospitals or regular hospitals, providing them with medical and audiological measuring and control devices as well as therapy and treatment units. In order to offer customers the option of trying out and comparing a diverse range of products, a new showroom was recently opened at the 1050 Vienna site. In addition to the basic equipment for an ENT specialist, the latest products are also regularly presented here and open house days with different topics and professional advice are organised.

Very clear locking system requirements

"We were seeking a locking system suitable to assign and log schedule-based as well as area-based access authorisations while maintaining the security levels and a good cost/benefit ratio", Albert Kesisyan, Certified Partner and KNOX customer advisor explains the requirements. The system must guarantee that certain authorised users or persons can exclusively gain access to important warehousing and office facilities at defined times. It is equally important that lost keys do not require costly cylinder replacements and subsequent assignments of new keys. "We opted against a new, mechanical master key system because we saw the signs of time", Kesisyan adds. Consequently, perfect requirements for EVVA's electronic access control system AirKey.

Customised access control system

Comprehensive support, as is customary at Neuroth, was also required from the installation company KNOX, which recommended AirKey and was thus able to obtain all system components from one manufacturer. AirKey cylinders and key tags with a chip were used to secure the external and internal doors. In regards to the different user groups for the company building, Neuroth Medical Group places great importance on flexible access configuration and the option to withdraw access quickly if keys are potentially lost. The simply designed online administration, which enables autonomous management, was also a decisive factor.

The customer is satisfied: "as a traditional, Austrian company, Neuroth has been familiar with EVVA for a long time and thus we quickly decided to opt for their services. KNOX experts explained the intended access control system in plenty of detail. The levels of advice were outstanding, honest and comprehensive. The access control system that was subsequently installed in our warehousing facilities operates smoothly and to our full satisfaction. The support from KNOX is also extraordinary – we have never regretted having opted for the EVVA AirKey system", med. Antonius C. Kierner explains as the managing director at Neuroth Medical Group.

Simple and secure – no need for additional infrastructure

Developed and manufactured in Austria, the electronic Airkey system offers a flexible access control solution. Thanks to AirKey the key is sent via Internet. All you need is a smartphone, Internet access and an AirKey cylinder, as they have here at Neuroth. The AirKey app and the unique EVVA KeyCredits turn this smart access control system into a user-friendly, complete solution.

There is no need for dedicated software thanks to the AirKey online administration. Simply drag and drop to grant access authorisations to smartphones or identification media. At the same time, access authorisations can be removed quickly and easily via the online administration. Access events, i.e. "who has been where?", are alsoavailable online at any time. Just as the battery status of the cylinders can be queried. The AirKey system is compatible with all conventional Internet browsers as well as operating systems and requires no dedicated software installation or special IT infrastructure.
