Door Entry Phone Controller With External Call Forwarding
This Door Intercom Controller with Call Forwarding enables
visitors at your front door to contact you on the existing
telephones in your house or business, plus it has the advantage of
being able to contact you on your cell phone or other phone number
no matter where you are. You could be on the other side of the world
and not only can you talk to visitors, you can unlock the door to
let them in at the touch of a button on your phone!
This controller is placed in line with the existing telephone
line that runs to your current telephones or telephone system. A
door intercom (see Related Products and Accessories to choose a door
intercom) is attached directly to the controller. When a visitor
presses the call button on the door intercom the controller rings
the inside phones with a double ring cadence so you can identify
that the door unit is calling. If there is no answer on the inside
phones, the built-in five number dialer takes over to make outside
calls to up to five telephone numbers you program. If the controller
detects busy or no answer it will dial the next number in the queue.
The controller also provides a “Call Waiting” tone when the phone
line is in use so you can choose to answer the call from the door
before it dials out on the external phone numbers.
The controller can be programmed to activate an electric door
strike when someone presses a one or two digit code on an internal
telephone or one of the remote dialed telephones.
If no door strike activation is required, the controller can be
configured to operate a doorbell. When the controller is programmed
to Door Bell mode, the door strike relay will activate whenever the
door phone goes off hook. You can connect this relay to a door bell to activate it.
If the controller is set to Remote Door Strike Activation mode,
you can call in from a remote location and activate the door strike
relay to let someone in even though they did not activate the door
entry unit. This would be useful if you are talking to someone on
their cell phone and they are standing in front of your door wanting
to get in.
A standard analog telephone can be used as the door entry phone.
When the phone comes off hook, the controller will ring the house
You can also use the internal house phones to call out to the
entry phone for monitoring purposes. This enables you to listen in
to what's happening around the entry area on door units that allow
The controller can be programmed to immediately call the external
phone numbers if you do not need it to call internal house phones.
There is a trigger input that can be used for a Request to Exit
switch so people can press a button inside the building to activate
the electric door strike.
