The new IP intercoms are ideal for a wide range of installations including office blocks, apartment complexes, hospitals and commercial buildings enabling the door entry system to utilise existing networks saving both cost and installation time.
The Videx IP system is available as a convenient kit and as an expandable system which can be customised to suit the needs of any building. 12 gauge, 316 grade stainless steel vandal resistant entrance panels are available along with the popular 4000 Series modular style, all with a wide angle colour camera and with 1 call button up to a maximum of 42 call buttons and an input for an optional second camera.
The kits includes a wall mount 6200 series videophone and the entrance panel which is available in standard or vandal resistant form with surface or flush mounting options. The videophone includes a touch screen 3.5” colour display enabling the end user to customise a range of settings as well as initiate calls to entrance points, neighbours and internally to other extensions with the facility to have up to 16 videophones in each apartment or office. An event log can also be viewed on the videophone with a video capture feature to see missed callers. The kit also includes a 1.25A 12Vdc power supply which can be used to power the entrance panel, a lock release and the videophone if required. The videophone can also be powered via POE from a POE switch.
The beauty of IP systems over conventional systems is that IP systems don’t need dedicated wiring infrastructure and can be used on new or existing networks. These networks can be shared with other technologies such as CCTV, access control, building management and many others.
Bespoke panel sizes are also available upon request. Available with engraved legend or back lit name plate windows and incorporate call progress LED’s to assist a caller. Entrance panels and videophones all have two relay outputs, two inputs and RS485 connectivity which can be used for a variety of functions such as door/gate release and activation of auxiliary functions.
IP systems are generally very flexible and can allow for connections over an unlimited distance while utilising existing LAN, WAN, Wi-Fi and 3G/4G infrastructures using the Videx iOS & Android apps. Installers are now very familiar with IP technologies allowing them to use existing knowledge and experience gained while installing other security systems such as access control and CCTV. IP systems offer greater flexibility to the installer, making it very simple to expand and alter a system as the need arises.
