ANTI COVID-19 SYSTEMS

COVID 19

At pandemic era we are living, to avoid the contact in common areas is beening essential to control Covid-19 spreading. Now, it´s very important to have automatic systems. We are going to bring you some systems to help you with prevention and control needs.

AUTOMATE YOUR GATE

If you want to acces to your home or urbanization without a contact, you could get it easily with an automatic gate. You have to use your reomote control and you could avoid to touch common element, therefore, an important infection focus.

Today there are a lot of designs, materials and ways to works. A great range of options to choose the best to your needs.

CONTROL FROM OUR HAND

We take a step further automation and for it, we add the direct management from our smartphone.

Today there are a lot of applications and system to manange the entrance, exist form your smartphone directly. You control everything and touch nothing, it´s perfect to pandemic time.

CAR NUMBER PLATE RECOGNITION

If you don´t want to use any device to go into your urbanization, then the carn number plate recognition system is your best option.

A camera, located at the entrance gate or barrier, takes a pic of your car number plate. If it´s in the system´s data base, the gate/barrier will be opened without any device. Zero contact, zero exposure to Covid-19

PROXIMITY SYSTEM TO YOUR GATES

Pedestrain gates are a critical point this pandemic era. In this time, we tried to open with our foot, elbow; we pushed by the keys or something. Always we avoided to touch the handle of the gate.

There are opening systems by proximity devices. It works by a reader located close to the gate. When you bring closer the tag, the system starts and the gate opens. It´s a way to don´t use the handle anymore.

ADVICES TO PREVENT THE SQUATTING

ocupación

Squatting becomes, last years, a big worry. This concers affects to owners, neighbours and spanish society at all. All of us meet families with second residences, close to the beach or mountain, that are exposed along  the year to this problem.

The late answer form Spanish Tribunals and squatter´s impunity bring to squatting the easiest options to enjoy a house without costs. Prevention is the best way to avoid and fight this situation. We bring you some advices to prevent squatting.

CLOSED GATES AND WINDOWS

It seems obviousness, but there are a lo of houses and plots that are been ocuppied beacuse the community´s external gates aren´t good locked. Other worry situation is when the automatic gate are been opened, by neighbourds negligence, and external people could come in to the urbanization.

To avoid these situations we just need the colaboration of neighbourdhood. Also, there are a lot of automatic gates that ensure the perfect closing for good price.

KEYS CONTROL TO ACCESS

To get an access system that prohibit the keys/fobs copies by unauthorised people, it´s the focus to incease our security.

En  nuestra web puedes encontrar  el sistema perfecto para evitar la copia no autorizada de llaves, Winkhaus BlueCompact,  y mandos que no se pueden duplicar sin permiso,

Visit our website and you´find a perfect system to avoid the unauthorised key copies, Winkhaus BlueCompact, and fobs that couldn´t be copied without authorisation.

SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS

If we have a surveillance system installed, we´ll help to decrease the old disagreements between neighbours. The scratchs or punctures on the cars arent´s usual as time beofre.

A surveillance cameras in communities avoid to unathorised poeople to access and squat the houses. Squatters avoid to force entrances to open when they are under surveillance system.

ALARM SYSTEMS

It´s better prevent than treat it, and the alarm´s cost, in this moment, are very cheap. You could get one since 49€ per month.

If you have a squatting, the alarm system sends an alert, at the moment, to receiver central where they verify if it´s a robbery or squatting.

SICUR IS HERE AND YOU HAVE TO GO

GOLD METAL TO GOOGLE ASSISTANT

Google Assitant

Perphaps, our country is discovering all the functions of the voice assistants, but there are places like USA where these devices are integrated day-to-day.

Para aquellos que no estéis familiarizados con los asistentes de voz, hablamos de un asistente virtual con inteligencia artificial que, a través de conversaciones bidireccionales, permite comunicarse con el dispositivo por voz y éste procesa, interpreta y responde al usuario.

The devices mostly known are: Siri by Apple, Google Assistant by Google, Alexa by Amazon and Cortana by  Microsoft.

These software are integrated in differents hardwares, for example:

  1.  Smart speakers like Amazing Echo, Google Home or Microsoft.
  2. Messages App like M by Facebook Messengers.
  3. Integrated software in systems like Siri, Cortana or Google Allo.
  4. Electrical appliance, vehicles, smart watches, clothes…
GOOGLE ASSISTANT

Today we´re going to talk about Google´s voice assitant, Google Assistant.

There is a fight with the others voice assistants to get the first place on this sector. Google has done a big investment an it gets to be on the top of them:

Time to Answer: Google Assistant offers faster answer than the other assitants.

Background Noise: Google Assistant and Siri work so good with background noises.

Best results: Google gives better results than Alexa. Google uses its onw searcher to give better results. Meanwhile, Amazon assitant looks for around its webs and showed products.

Integration: the integration is a key element. Google Assistant is ready to be used by Android or iOS system, meanwhile Siri only works with iOS system.

Personalized results: Google has a lot of personal data, it doesn´t mean that it hasn´t privacity, when you looking for something. Then, it could give you a personalized results.

Cost/Quality Balance: with a price of 120€, Google speaker isn´t the cheapest device, as Alexa is, but it doesn´t get the 350€ of Apple assistant. It´s a great balance of quality/price.

FUNCTIONS

If we think what could Google Home do for us if we install it at home, we´ll discover that:

– We connect it with the automatic shutters and we could open and close them with our voice.

– We connect it with our automatic garage gates and with our voice we could open and close the home access.

Electric devices could be connected and we could swith on without force.

This is only the begining of a technology with a great future.

THE COMMUNITY CHALLENGES FACED WITH TOURIST APPARTMENT

Access control to tourist appartment

Platforms like Airbnb and/or Booking have strirred up the tourist sector. Our model has changed and the offers too. You´ll find tourist appartment in a lot of communities, a legal business but with some problems.

Beyond noises and problems with the regular entrances and exists, you have to think about the security and access of your community. How could you know if there aren´t key copies around the city? Rentals could lose the keys or take with them.

We have a security problem in our community. Powermatic has some systems to help you to solve this problems.

Mecanic keys.

Mecanic keys are like the key that we are used to take with us. These are special because they are made by alpaca to be reforced and it couldn´t be copied out of installing company. We could have a extra control if the owners/rentals could collect the key with an authorisation of the Administration.

Electronic key.

Electronic keys are the revolution of last years. We need to install a electric cylinders before and after that, we could manage and set up the installation. We could select who owner or what keys open some gates. We could personalise the accesses of each key. We could fix or cancel the keys.

Remote control and proximity cards.

There is a technology that give us a remote controls and proximity cards that they couldn´t be copied. We could have a system to register and asociate each remote and card. If you lose your advices, it could be located in the system and cancel it.

 Powermatic is ready to help you to solve the community problems.

Some features are:

  1. To know the last location of box.
  2. Automatic closing after it´s opened.
  3.  To share a temporary code to have a safe system. When rental is over, the code will be render.

It´s safetier than mecanic box because you could program the automatic closing.

MANDOS A DISTANCIA, TODO UN MUNDO EN TUS MANOS

Powermatic´s fobs

¡No todos los mandos a distancia son iguales! Y no hablamos de sus formas y colores. La manera de emitir, de programarse no siempre es la misma. Por ello en Powermatic queremos ayudaros a descubrir que tipo de mando tenéis entre manos.

FRECUENCIA Y CÓDIGO NO ES LO MISMO 

A la hora de meternos en el mundo los mandos a distancia, muchos cometemos el error de equivocar la frecuencia que usa nuestro emisor con el código que emite. Si jugamos a las similitudes, la frecuencia sería como la carretera para un coche,el camino que la señal del mando debe seguir para llegar al receptor. Por el contrario, el código sería como la llave con la que abriríamos la puerta de nuestra casa.

La mayoría de los mandos a distancia usan una frecuencia que va desde los 433.92 Mhz a los 868 Mhz. Por regla general, está última frecuencia es la utilizada para instalaciones en lugares de alta seguridad como comisarias, tribunales, etc. ya que se trata de una frecuencia a la que no le afecta los inhibidores. Por tanto, podremos encontrarnos mandos a distancia que aparentemente son iguales pero que emiten por frecuencias diferentes, lo que provocará que uno funcione y otro no.

CAMBIANTE O FIJO, ¿CÓMO ES TU MANDO?

Te hace falta un mando nuevo y quieres hacer una copia del que tienes, hay llega la primera de las dudas que te van a a asaltar. ¿Tengo un mando de código fijo o cambiante?

El código fijo se descubre al abrir el emisor. En caso de serlo, encontraremos en su interior unos microinterructores colocados en una posición determinadas. La copia de este tipo de mandos es bastante sencilla y no suele dar muchos problemas en el sistema de apertura.

Por el contrario, el sistema de códigos cambiantes, provoca que en cada pulsación que realicemos en el emisor, éste genere un código diferente que el receptor se encarga de descifrar y autorizar. El código de este tipo de mandos a distancia se compone de:

  • Un código instalador, totalmente personalizado y único.
  • Un número interno asignado al mando en concreto.
  • El número de pulsaciones realizadas con el mando hasta el momento.

Esta opción otorga mucha más seguridad ya que solo puede ser manipulado por el instalador.

LA COPIA DE MANDOS A DISTANCIA

La copia de mandos no siempre resulta tan fácil como parece. En los emisores de código fijo resulta bastante sencillo, pero el problema llega si lo que tienes entre manos es un mando con código cambiante. Podremos conseguir hacer la copia y convivirán los dos mandos, original y copia. El problema está cuando la copia alcance el mismo número de pulsaciones que el original. Aquí ambos empezarán a dar fallo de manera alternativa. Asimismo, en las comunidades de vecinos, las copias no autorizadas por el instalador pueden causar el bloqueo del sistema y que muchos mandos a distancia dejen de funcionar.

Desde Powermatic siempre aconsejamos contactar con la empresa instaladora a la hora de necesitar un emisor nuevo.

 

 

LA ERA DEL SMARTPHONE LLEGA A LAS PUERTAS AUTOMÁTICAS

Opening gates by App

Que el smartphone se ha convertido en un elemento esencial para nuestras vidas es toda una obviedad. Contamos con aplicaciones para todo: conectar personas, geolocalización, turismo… y así hasta un sinfín de temáticas.

CÓMO GESTIONAR EL CONTROL HORARIO EN EL CENTRO DE TRABAJO

Worktime control

Las empresas de este país tienen un nuevo reto para este 2017. Cumplir con la reciente normativa de la Dirección General de Inspección de Trabajo y Seguridad Social sobre control horario laboral. Con el objetivo de reducir las irregularidades en determinados sectores, se impone la obligación de llevar a cabo un control de la jornada de los trabajadores. El incumplimiento por parte de las empresas, conllevará sanciones que van desde los 626€ a los 6250€, en función de la gravedad.

¿Qué debemos de tener en cuenta en la gestión de este control horario?
  1. Registro jornada: se debe de tener constancia diaria, de la entrada y salida de todo trabajador a su puesto de trabajo.
  2. No se especifica modelo concreto: se otorga libertad a cada entidad para que adopte el sistema que considere mejor para gestionar el control.
  3. Disponible en el centro de trabajo: sólo se requerirá que esté disponible para una inspección, el registro de control diario del mes en curso.
  4. Los inspectores: no podrán ni deberán solicitar el registro de control de diario de otros meses.
  5. Registro de jornada mensual: junto con la nómina correspondiente, la empresa dará al trabajador un documento con la totalización de horas trabajadas al mes. En éste, no será necesario indicar, en detalle, las fechas y horas de entrada y salida.
  6. Archivo: el registro de jornada mensual deberá guardarse en el centro de trabajo durante los 4 años siguientes, pues será exigibles.
Sistemas de control horario

El control horario puede realizarse bien de manera manual (papel y boli) o a través de un proceso informático. Este último tiene la ventaja de ofrecer unos datos exhaustivos y reales de las horas de entrada/salida de los trabajadores, motivando así la productividad del equipo.

Existe una gran variedad de sistemas para gestionar las entradas y salidas a los recintos. Si lo que estamos buscando es un sistema que nos permita obtener información posterior, informes de actividad. recomendamos la identificación biométrica.

El terminal de identificación biométrica permite identificación 1 contra N (el usuario es identificado únicamente con su huella digital), y la verificación 1 contra 1 (el usuario introduce algún dato extra además de la huella dactilar como un código numérico que dota de una mayor seguridad). Los datos de entrada y salida de usuarios son registrados y se pueden importar fácilmente como archivo.

Para cualquier duda o información, en Powermatic estamos encantados de poder ayudaros. (info@powermatic.es)
