Inspired by breath (nefes stands for breath in Turkish) and the fact that "breath is the indispensable element of life", Nef sets off with imagination and contemplation. It intends to offer a new alternative for any solution without being confined to dreams some other people have or needs they establish. It is characterized by a rational, humble, refined and unique lifestyle where sharing is made possible. As a creation by Nef, Foldhome concept provides grand living spaces in small square meters. Under the Foldhome system, you get to have a house with 24 rooms when you buy one. Through a reservation system, you can make use of 24 units ranging from movie theaters in the building you reside, Play Station rooms, a fully-equipped kitchen for times when you do not want to mess your own kitchen to a music room including a small recording studio to play piano or drums. 24 Foldhome units are mountable into your house when requested as if they are a room of the house, and you pay for them only when you benefit. Developing projects with high investment value in the heart of Istanbul, Nef opted for Duetron card-pass automation software when it came to both entrances & exits and air conditioning and lighting systems and control for playgrounds, Playstation room, fitness hall, artistic workshop and laundry of the project titled Nef Suites Haliç 47. Duetron card-pass automation software was offered as a solution for the entertainment room, Playstation room, Private Movie Theater, Fitness Hall and Artistic Workshop as a part of NEF Suites Haliç 47. The software features project identification, foldhome identification, card-reader identification, add - delete user (card identification), time manager (reservation tracking), door, air conditioning and lighting control, website integration, instant user tracking and reporting. Project Identification enables to identify more than one project in software, and perform automation checks of projects through a network via one single server. Foldhome & Card Reader Identification names card readers and enables to view hall names for both reservation and user tracking. Thus, it becomes easier to check on the system by hall names. Text Settings allow to input requested information in spaces on a LCD screen for card readers. The moment a card holder lets the reader read his/her card, you get to view information about the card and the hall on a screen. Time Manager furnishes an occasion to track what user makes reservation in which hall and at what time, and enables you to make intervention to reservations. For foldhomes with defined relay settings, one can intervene with automatic turning-on and turning-off times for air conditioning and lighting. User Management enables to identify cards on the database with users, and manage user communication details and their level of authorization for entry and exit.  API Management makes it possible to easily transmit reservation and user registration details through a website thanks to a custom key and an application key identified in line with an IP or a domain. Logs enable to view information about what user enters or exits what hall at what time and hour as well as unauthorized card identifications and walk-ins. As Ateksis, we put Duetron OS into use as it is our own operating system In an effort to enable this software to function apart from the Duetron software. Thus, we made sure the software ran in a more stable, safe and fast manner. Card readers were totally mounted in line with the aesthetic style of the doors, and put into service for the residents of Nef Suites Haliç. Duetron card-pass automation system provides users with a chance to benefit from foldhomes within their reservation times, and building personnel with an opportunity to have access through the same system.

In parallel with technological progress, developments in security systems lead to introduction of products with more comprehensive and detailed capabilities on a daily basis.

In parallel with technological progress, developments in security systems lead to introduction of products with more comprehensive and detailed capabilities on a daily basis. Serving as one of the trivets of this system, security cameras emerge as equipment with more features, endurance and most importantly capability to provide more feedback for users. Security cameras are now much more capable in terms of image quality, alarm management, content analysis and providing other metadata. However, there is such a principle familiar to all the parties involved in technology that software need to be adapted for novelties in order for hardware novelties to be put into effect and practice. In other words, it is the software that deliver such novelties to users. Such continuous developments in hardware have entailed ceaseless progress and innovation in software, as well. Under the circumstances, software industry has developed methodologies such as agile programming or extreme programming, and made sure computer programs grow into more dynamic products thanks to methods such as constant integration and non-stop distribution. Each and every software we put into use is constantly under development and released in new versions. Performing a robust analysis over this need of the industry, Teknomaks has embarked on developing software, which is required for security systems within its own body, under the brand of Duetron. As the first example of this software, DuetronVMS Video Recording and Management Software was released for users nearly two years ago. With capability to perform recording, monitoring and managing for security cameras, this software have been successfully put into effect for many projects in the process. DuetronVMS has been increasing the number of users constantly and consistently developing to further meet the ever-changing needs of the industry. Developed completely in Turkish interface and documentation, DuetronVMS software is reinforced by language options for English and a 3rd language in its latest version allowing to put it into use not only for domestic but also for international projects. The pivotal advantage of Duetron software to make a difference is the fact that the team of developers cooperate with competent technicians with considerable know-how and experience in security. Thus, Teknomaks manages to design software in line with needs of end users , and provide essential modifications for cases requiring project- or location-based solutions. Besides, it renders faster and more effective services while providing technical assistance for use.

Teknomaks has just added another Duetron-branded product to its arsenal as it has made an indelible impression thanks to security cameras and card-pass software in recent years. Released as the first version under the name of DuetronFMS, the software offers a complete management and monitoring capability for fire alarm systems. DuetronFMS has commenced to cooperate with Bosch FPA fire alarm panels for the initial application. In addition, the software is able to operate in conformity with other fire panels that communicate via OPC since it is designed in consideration of the commonly-adopted OPC standard.

DuetronFMS features a central server that bidirectionally transmits all collected data, and enables the system to be monitored and managed at various spots that operate as a client on the network. The comprehensive reporting content and map assistance are intended to provide users with real-time data in an opulent visual content.

Having announced its intention to keep developing software for building security and automation under the brand of Duetron, Teknomaks also noted that these products would operate in full integration to be ensured by a software-based perspective. It is because security systems and affiliated software vary and take more complicated forms on a daily basis in quantity and features. This can make it difficult for end users to monitor and manage systems. That is why the integration of systems within themselves gains more and more importance.

In line with this objective, the software development team of Teknomaks has been carrying on efforts to make sure all software can simultaneously communicate via a common protocol at the same platform. It was announced that the following version of DuetronFMS Fire Alarm Management software to be released in days to come would complement the integration with DuetronVMS Video Recording and Management. This enables to receive fire alarm signals through a CCTV system on an instant basis, and build scenarios accordingly.
