Keyless-in products for keyless access have long been standard in the automotive industry, but are still the exception when it comes to building use. Gira therefore now also offers products for building technology that enable access via the user's fingerprint. This also applies to the "Gira System 106", which has been expanded accordingly. This has a modular design and, with its front panels made of metal, has a purist appearance that blends into the respective environment in an elegant, unobtrusive manner. The system's external call station, which can be flexibly combined with other modules, is available in both a surface-mounted and a flush-mounted version. The "Gira System 106" is now supplemented with the new "Gira Keyless In Fingerprint" module, which is available in traffic white (RAL 9016), aluminum, stainless steel (V2A) and stainless steel (V4A). This adds a keyless access type to the door communication system, which also enables configurations according to personal

"Gira Keyless In Fingerprint" uses the user's biometric fingerprint to grant access authorization. This is based on a surface scanning technology in which the lowest layers of skin are scanned using high frequency. The module then evaluates the characteristic features of the human fingerprint, whereby finger recognition also works if the structure of the skin has changed slightly, as in the case of an injury caused by gardening. The "Gira Keyless In Fingerprint" can manage up to 100 different fingerprints, whereby a temporarily limited access can also be defined via time switching. It is also possible to create up to ten people as administrators. This means that the door can be opened without a key while maintaining a high level of security.

The new module can not only be combined with the other "Gira System 106" applications or used as a stand-alone device, but is also compatible with third-party systems. This makes it flexible not only in terms of space, but also in terms of the specific application. Detailed user management is then carried out via the smartphone using the "Gira Keyless In App". All "Keyless In" devices from Gira can be connected to the KNX bus system via the Gira HomeServer, which enables further links in the building – such as the light in a room, which can thus be controlled with predefined fingerprints.
