Berlin/Hof, 1 June 2021 – The PropTech Sensorberg, which specializes in the digitalization of real estate and smart storage solutions, and SKS-Kinkel Elektronik GmbH, a company from Hof in the Westerwald region that specializes in building communication, are entering into a technology partnership. The cooperation aims to make digital building control more uncomplicated and thus increase user comfort, especially in the smart home sector.
For this purpose, the audio and video intercom systems developed by SKS-Kinkel will be connected to the intelligent Sensorberg platform via an interface. On this basis, tenants in buildings with the Sensorberg IoT platform being used for building control can control the intercoms digitally via an app. The house call is transmitted from the door station to the app so that the tenant can see who is ringing the doorbell and open the door remotely, even when they are out of the house. In addition, the house call appears simultaneously on the indoor intercom and also enables the door to be opened from here. In the next step, the integration of parcel stations and letterboxes from SKS-Kinkel is also planned.
The successful start of the cooperation between Sensorberg and SKS-Kinkel is the implementation of digital technology in the Gleis Park residential complex in Berlin. Further Flex-Office projects in Switzerland and a co-living project in Berlin are currently being implemented.
Stefan Scheuerle, CEO of Sensorberg, says: "The cooperation with SKS-Kinkel is an important step for Sensorberg. Because from a strategic point of view, the partnership offers us the opportunity to expand our ecosystem with an innovative management solution for intercoms, door stations, and soon also parcel and mailbox systems. In this way, we can cover an even wider range of use cases, functionalities, and diversity in the context of future Smart Living projects."
Christopher Kinkel, Sales Director of SKS, says: "We are aware of the importance of the change towards a holistic digital ecosystem in the real estate industry and therefore see ourselves more and more as a software-based service provider. We, therefore, develop our products and solutions so that they fit optimally into holistic ecosystems and thus offer added value for construction companies, property owners, and users. With Sensorberg, we have a partner at our side with whom we can succeed in achieving this goal."
