BAS-IP’s Obelisk – a device for safe access to residential compounds, centres and closed areas – received the highest award in one of the largest international competitions, Red Dot, as Best of the Best “Design Concept 2021.”; this award recognises revolutionary design.
“Our goal was to develop a technological device, with an ecological and unusual look, well suited to any modern architecture. Obelisk looks utterly different from any built-in intercom solution. By introducing this design, we wanted to set the trend for such solutions. And our design department nailed it perfectly.” – says Olga Shamilova, CEO BAS-IP group.
The use of various finishing materials can make Obelisk almost invisible, or vice versa, make it stand out in modern rooms or offices.
Using deep learning technology, Obelisk recognises a person’s face in a matter of seconds and provides access to the territory or premises to verified users. It has a built-in voice control system for a more convenient and secure interaction, a contactless button for communication with a concierge and many other features.
Obelisk is a stand-alone device with an advanced modular design, which comprises a range of innovative solutions. Unlike most embedded intercom systems, which heavily rely on compact components, the Obelisk form factor allows for the use of the most functional components regardless of their size.
This device is not limited to providing access to premises for property owners or protecting them from uninvited guests. It also ensures a comfortable authentication process.
Authentication can be done with the help of a code, an access card, face recognition, a smartphone app, Bluetooth, a QR code, or a one-time URL. For enhanced security, Obelisk uses flexible multi-factor authentication. For example, when installed in an enterprise, the device can control access by matching the card with the visitor’s face. In residential compounds, you can leave a temporary access code to a courier and check it later with their identification document (ID).
