SMDC Residences 50-story Residential Apartment Access Control Case Study

Project Description

SMDC Residences, is a vertical village which is the tallest apartment located in Taft Avenue in Manila, just steps from De La Salle University, stands a 50-story building with 3,378 units from the 9th floor up to the top. The ground floor is open for public shoppers. To manage, monitor and control the massive count of public-access and to safeguard all unit owners, SMDC Residences selected and gave trust to the biological verification all-in-one card system for door and elevator access and boom barriers for parking access, provided by ZKTeco with the effort and support of STI Company and Nanotec Corporation (ZKTeco Philippine Distributor). With regards to existing equipment, STI integrates the controllers for better functionality. This system helps the company to strongly maintain the security order, to improve the monitoring structure and to strengthen the management organization. With this in mind, we could guarantee you that you’re fully secured while you’re at SMDC Residences Taft Manila.
