Keyfob Implementation Issues
Although work is nearing completion on the keyfobs, there are two issues
that warrant further attention.
The Security of Motion Detectors
It seems that, doors unlock automatically as one approaches the doors
— one can simply pull the handle instead of turning it. Why is that
so? Does this not mean that someone standing outside the door can simply
wait for someone to approach the door to get in without even being "let"
in? There seems to be no benefit of these motion detectors, and they should
The Ergonomics of Swiping
As documented in the images below, the keyfob swipe pads are very far
from the door handles. This is a significant inconvenience, especially
when people are burdened with packages. What's more, in most cases the
swipe locations are on the left side of the door, a further inconvenience
to the 90% of our general population that is right-handed.
The obvious place for the swipe pads would be near the doorknobs, but
this space is currently occupied by the numeric keypads which are for
the use of our orthodox community for entry during Jewish holidays. I
very strongly recommend swapping locations so all of our residents, orthodox
included, can have the most convenient experience.
