Humans are lazy and want to have life as relaxed as possible. The concept of Smart Home focuses on this issue. Smart Home is the broader term for automation of the home, housework or household activity. It may include centralized control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliances, security locks of gates and doors and other systems, to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security. The popularity of home automation has been increasing greatly in recent years due to much higher affordability and simplicity through smartphone and tablet connectivity. The concept of the "Internet of Things" has tied in closely with the popularization of home automation. In terms of managing door surveillance and door strike, we realized these following use cases:

Keys are waste!

You can't find your key quickly in your pocket or you forgot your key anyway.
Open your door via Mobile Application and Webinterface!

Safety first!

Watch what happens in front of your door. A webcam stream can be displayed via Mobile App and Webinterface.

Open Sesame!

You stand in front of the door packed full of shopping bags. If you are near the door it will open automatically!

Never get up from your couch!

If you watch your favorite TV Show and the pizza delivery boy rings, you never have to get up. Open your door via Mobile Application and Webinterface!

Delegate access!

Grant other people temporary access. For example the housecleaner, the babysitter or the neighbor during holidays!
