IP intercoms for Al Erkyah City in Qatar

SMART Access & Identity 2024 Access Control & Identity Management

Al Erkyah City is a new upscale mixed-use development in the Lusail district of Doha, Qatar. The luxury community features ultra-modern high-rise buildings, premium retail spaces, and a 5-star hotel. Al Erkyah City represents the pinnacle of modern, high-end living in Qatar.

The project developers required an IP intercom system on par with the development’s elite standards to facilitate secure access control and streamline property management across the vast property. After careful evaluation, Al Erkyah City selected DNAKE to deploy comprehensive IP intercom solutions for buildings R05, R15, and R34, totalling 205 apartments.

By choosing DNAKE, Al Erkyah City is outfitting its properties with a flexible cloud-based system that can easily scale across its growing community. DNAKE engineers conducted in-depth evaluations of Al Erkyah’s unique requirements before proposing a customised solution utilising a combination of feature-rich door stations with HD cameras and 7-inch touchscreen indoor monitors. Residents of Al Erkyah City will enjoy advanced features such as indoor monitoring via the DNAKE smart life APP, remote unlocking, and integration with home alarm systems.

Visual identification

At this large community, high-resolution 4.3-inch video door phones were installed at key access points leading into the buildings. The crisp video provided by these devices enabled the security personnel or residents to identify visitors requesting entry from the video door phone visually. The high-quality video from the door phones gave them confidence in assessing potential risks or suspicious behaviour without personally greeting every visitor.

Additionally, the wide-angle camera on the door phones provided a comprehensive view of the entry areas, allowing the residents to closely monitor the surroundings for maximum visibility and oversight. Positioning the 4.3-inch door phones at carefully selected entry points allowed the complex to leverage its investment in this video intercom security solution for optimal monitoring and access control across the property.

A significant factor in Al Erkyah City’s decision was DNAKE’s flexible offering for indoor intercom terminals. DNAKE’s slim-profile 7-inch indoor monitors were installed in all 205 apartments. Residents benefit from convenient video intercom capabilities directly from their suite, including a clear, high-quality display for video verification of visitors, intuitive touch controls through the flexible Linux OS, and remote access and communication via smartphone apps. In summary, the large Linux indoor monitors deliver residents an advanced, convenient, and smart intercom solution for their homes.

Always updated

Residents will find the communication system remains at the cutting edge thanks to DNAKE’s over-the-air update capability. New capabilities can be seamlessly rolled out to indoor monitors and door stations without costly site visits. With the DNAKE intercom, Al Erkyah City can now provide a smart, connected, and future-ready intercom communication platform matching the innovation and growth of this new community.
