Residential community gets door entry access control via mobile app

Residents at housing development, Chapel View, gets upgrades with door entry requests and QR codes for temporary access through Comelit-PAC’s mobile app.

Set in the village of Gildersome in Leeds, Chapel View is a housing development with seven residential homes in a ‘discreet’ cul-de-sac, secured with a communal gate.

The community had featured a legacy door entry system that required an upgrade to enhance the security of residents. Comelit-PAC is said to have worked with local installation specialists AC Secure from the initial design process, through the works programme to project completion.

Door entry, via Comelit-PAC’s VIP system was specified, utilising its Ultra door entry solution, designed to enable control of the gate to the housing estate. Each house is said to have its own license and users can use the feature-rich Comelit app to control the gate whilst also creating QR codes to allow temporary access for visitors.

David from the resident’s association of Chapel View said: “With high expectations for our residents to deliver ultimate security, every element of the new door entry system also had to be considered from a convenience perspective, to enable them to answer door entry requests remotely, from their smartphone.

“AC Secure worked with us right from the specification process and took the time to understand these requirements, before recommending Comelit-PAC as an ideal solution. The additional benefits of utilising app technology to present door entry and QR codes for temporary access to visitors immediately appealed. And the system was installed with minimal disruption and a great benefit to our community.”

“Elevated the door experience”

All the smart home security systems had to be stylish and futureproof to suit the requirements of the community, whilst also ensuring ease of installation and simple use.

“Comelit-PAC’s Ultra system with VIP technology, coordinating with its dedicated app was the natural choice for door entry. Residents love the sleek design and the VIP technology is easy to use and allows them the convenience to receive calls and see visitors from anywhere. The combination has truly elevated the door entry experience.”

The entrance to Chapel View has also had an upgrade with Comelit-PAC’s flush-mounted Ultra digital entrance panel. The system is designed to enable new residents to grant access through the vehicle gates using the firm’s mobile app.

Stephen Wragg, Business Development Manager for Comelit-PAC concluded: “What our work with AC Secure at Chapel View demonstrates is how Comelit-PAC is ‘with you always.’ There is no project too big or too small for us to work with our installers and partners to provide smart, yet stylish door entry solutions for residents to benefit from the latest in smart access control. Ultra, together with VIP presents a powerful mobile-first solution that can ensure the ultimate security for this residential community.”
