The world’s first smart door could become the new norm for doors, with an introduction of a fingerprint scanner at some of the biggest brands in the world.
The smart door, designed by German company Deuter, uses sensors to scan doorways for fingerprints, allowing doors to automatically close if the wearer is seen entering or exiting.
In the future, fingerprint scanners would allow anyone to check in to any home, including restaurants, cafes and even shopping centres, for an undisclosed fee.
“We’re now looking at the possibility of having a scanner in every single door,” said Mark Zuckert, the chief executive of Deuter.
“There’s an opportunity here to have a system in the home that can track where people are and when they’re at home.”
The company has teamed up with some of Australia’s biggest tech companies, including Apple and Google, to launch the system at its new home in Sydney, which is home to many of the world’s biggest brands including Samsung and Adidas.”
If a person is checking in or out of the office, we could then monitor that.”

The system would be installed by the doors and would only need to be scanned once per day, allowing the doorkeeper to quickly check the entry and exit times of anyone who visits.
It would also allow for the detection of people who are out of sight.
“We don’t want to be in a situation where we are required to scan people who have left the office,” ZuckERT said.
“In the case of someone who has been out of town for a few weeks or even months, there’s a risk that they could be able to leave.”
The system is expected to be deployed across the industry in 2018.
