Access control via fingerprint with DoorBird and ekey

The new DoorBird IP video intercom now provides an option for adding access control via an ekey fingerprint scanner. The D2101FV EKEY door station is equipped with a cutout for installing the ekey home FS UP I fingerprint reader. Visitors and homeowners can use all the functions of the smart intercom immediately after installation including opening doors via app or RFID key fob. Once the ekey module has been mounted, access can also be granted by fingerprint. The DoorBird app controls, RFID reader and ekey reader can all be used simultaneously.

The D2101FV EKEY door station is made of stainless steel and produced in Berlin, Germany by Bird Home Automation, a leader in smart door communication. The intercoms include high-quality components such as an IP video camera with a wide-angle lens and night vision, a speaker with echo and noise suppression, a configurable motion sensor and an RFID reader. Using the open API interface, the DoorBird door station can be integrated into third-party home and building automation systems.

The ekey fingerprint scanner is one of the leading fingerprint access solutions worldwide. With the ekey home FS UP I module, the Austrian company ekey biometric systems offers a stand-alone fingerprint reader that can be purchased separately and installed into the DoorBird D2101FV EKEY intercom at any time.
