ENTERTECH SYSTEMS, the official operating partner for Suprema in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Puerto Rico, has just announced the deployment of Suprema biometric access control in an exciting high-end residential application. Their new system has been successfully installed in Wood Partners' new luxury high-rise Dimension by Alta, giving residents a unique level of freedom. Instead of having to fumble for cards or fobs, all they have to do to enter and move through the secure property is scan their finger.

Located in Seattle's vibrant Belltown district, this high-end rental property is targeted at savvy urbanites with fast-paced lives. Built by Wood Partners, a leading American residential developer, it's a chic, central spot that appeals to a young, sophisticated demographic. Because Wood Partners' vision is to develop, build and manage residences that improve people's lives by creating better communities, their goal was to provide residents with a premium experience. Being able to move freely without cards or fobs is one of the luxury features that makes the building such a coveted address.

"ENTERTECH SYSTEMS and Suprema definitely delivered on the cool factor for Dimension by Alta," says William Leahy, Wood Partners VP of Construction for the western region. "With the new system, Dimension truly lives up to the standards of a luxury high-rise residential complex - modern, clean lines and state-of-the-art technologies like biometric access make our residents' daily lives organic and effortless."

The solution was installed by TPS Technologies, a full-service, low-voltage integration contractor with over 20 years of experience in access control, surveillance, voice and data cabling, structured cabling, and audio video system design, installation, repair and service.

"ENTERTECH SYSTEMS was able to provide the hardware and software that enabled us to best satisfy Wood Partners' needs," says Jason Fuller, President of TPS Technologies. "The ENTERTECH SYSTEMS model of collaboration and their willingness to help find outside-the-box solutions like connecting the Suprema biometric reader to the telephone entry system was of tremendous benefit."

The property consists of six underground parking levels, a lobby level, 25 residential floors and a rooftop gathering area. TPS Technologies designed and installed Suprema biometric readers for three exterior entrances, one parking entry, 24 interior doors, and three elevators.

"Our goal is to help systems integrators like TPS Technologies with the technical support they need to successfully install and enroll their customers on Suprema technologies," says Rob Douglas, CEO of ENTERTECH SYSTEMS. "Our highly responsive, results-driven technical services team works with our certified partner network to ensure complete customer satisfaction."
