multi-point entry door hardware with smart technology9/11
is there a source for multi-point entry door hardware with smart technology?
I get the same silence when I have looked for the same thing. Closest I have come is electronic throw bolts to hold a passive door in a pair. They could be set up on a whole house power plan, operated by the phone, etc.
I see the technology on the residential side coming from Shlage and the like. I don't think Rocky Mountain will have keypad latches. The commercial side for some reason ignores the residential applications that may be possible.
I see multipoints as a fix from windblown composite stiles bending in the wind without a latchpoint. Could be my prejudice, but this also is at the bottom of the market.
The top of the market will never (never say never?) shift to keypads or multipoints in every opening.
GU has someting called GU-Secury Automatic smart access controled.
In Canada its sold by Ferco Achitectural Hardware Inc.

I have only used electronic multipoints once and acquired them from FFI. They had to be ordered from Winkhaus Germany. I don’t know if anyone in the US stocks these. You could try Interlock NA, Hope, Roto and GU, etc to see what they offer.

I would advise looking for power transfer hinges if you use these. It was a lot of work using the hinge side transfer from Winkhaus. We had double trouble on this door as it had a tilt turn window built in with Smart Tint that also required power transfer. By the way their products are total garbage and would never use again.
The Winkhaus system was well engineered, just a lot of work. I think custom door makers are faced with using this technology. it is common in Europe now. And I think as it is developed it will get better and easier.
