Door Communication Systems
This new control system product offers a Voice and Video over IP (V2IP)-enabled door communication and entry system and claims to provide doorbell functionality, along with full-duplex audio and one-way video communications, I/O's (Inputs/Outputs) for motion sensors and relays for remotely unlocking electronic, magnetic locks.
When installed at a door or gate, the Metreau Entry Communicator promises to provide notification upon guest arrival, along with one-way video and two-way audio communication via any AMX Modero Touch Panel with intercom functionality installed in the home or building. And because the entry communicator includes I/Os and relays, doors and/or gates can be remotely unlocked, while sensors can be used to automatically announce arrivals or display their image – all from the same, convenient touch panel.
The Metreau Entry Communicator is available in two versions – one with a display and one without and comes in six color options – polished brass, antique brass, stainless steel, brushed pewter, white and black. The entry communicator without a display is weather resistant, enabling outdoor installation at an entry gate or front door exposed to the rain, while the entry communicator with a display adds the ability to provide personalized greeting messages, privacy notifications and other announcements, as well as a dual-color LED light that provides notification when messages are displayed.
An entry door telephone system having a touch-tone telephone with a keypad and an incoming phone line connected to the telephone. A door speaker phone is switchably connected in parallel with the touch-tone telephone, and a paging module is switchably connected in series with the door speaker phone for completing a circuit between the touch-tone telephone and the door speaker phone in response to a data signal transmitted from the keypad of the touch-tone telephone. For controlling operation of this system, a control box is connected to the paging module, the door speaker phone and the touch-tone telephone such that the circuit between the touch-tone telephone and the door speaker phone is broken in response to a data signal transmitted by the touch-tone telephone. Finally, a power source is connected to the paging module and the control box for supplying power thereto.
