If you need a video intercom that is built to last for a commercial
installation, this is it. Video intercoms don't get any more durable
than this...or much more full-featured. You can use this unit to monitor
one door with up to two inside stations.
This intercom offers features
like 170 degree angle view, digital camera pan/tilt/zoom, 240 image
picture memory, high resolution screen, exceptional low light pictures,
sensor inputs to sound an alert on all stations, video to DVR output,
vandal resistant camera, door or gate open button, option button for
other applications, monitor adjust button for varying lighting
conditions, and easy two-wire installation.
Video Door Station on this video intercom provides higher image quality
than most cameras...especially for night images. You'll see much more
detail in low-light
conditions than you'll get with other non-commercial
units. The monitor can even be adjusted for low-light and nighttime
settings as well as bright and heavy backlighting.
The Video Door Station is a vandal-resistant, surface-mount door
station that mounts directly to wall surface. Its faceplate is cast
zinc, the call button is metal, and the camera is protected with a
clear, tough Lexan lens cover.
The Video Door Station features a color CMOS camera, speaker and
microphone for communication, illuminated call directory, and white
illumination LED for low light conditions. The inside stations are
for use indoors only. Only the Video Door Station is weatherproof and
can be used outdoors.
Unlike cheaper video intercoms, the camera on this unit provides a
wide 170 degree angle view so you can see your entire entrance. This is
the first video intercom of its kind to provide such a wide viewing
Not only does this video intercom have a wide angle
view, it also lets you control the image you see with its Pan, Tilt and
Zoom feature. Where some intercoms use a mechanical, motorized method of
controlling the camera, this one is done digitally so there are no
moving parts. That increases its reliability and durability.
When you start out in 170 degree angle view, you can pan
to the right and left and then zoom in to see individuals closely. If
you are using this intercom in a location like a school where you could
be viewing children or adults, the tilt feature becomes very useful. It
lets you move the camera up or down to match the varying heights of your
For security purposes there is a picture memory that stores up to 240
images. If a call is received from a video door station, the unit starts
recording automatically. The record LED (red) flashes during recording.
Recording starts approximately two seconds after the CALL button of the
Video Door Station is pressed. A maximum length of approximately 6
seconds (6 shots) can be recorded, with 1 picture and 1 shot for each
second. A maximum of 40 images can be recorded for each visitor
(combined total of automatic recording and manual recording images). If
40 images are exceeded, images are overwritten starting from the image
with the oldest recording date.
For automatic recording, you can select the recording
method for recording pictures (up to 6 for each image) from the
following four types:
First three pictures are zoom pictures at a pre-set
position, and the next three pictures are wide pictures.
First three pictures are wide pictures, and the next
three pictures are zoom pictures at a pre-set position.
All six pictures are zoom pictures at a pre-set
All six pictures are wide pictures.
The initial setting is for the first three pictures to
be zoom pictures at a pre-set position, and for the next three pictures
to be wide pictures.
There are two modes you can use for voice. With Instant
Voice Call Mode, even without answering a call, the door area can be
seen and heard with video and audio (for approximately 45 seconds).
Inside sound is not heard outside.
In high noise environments, you put the unit in In
Push-To-Talk (PTT) Mode by pressing and holding the TALK button for at
least 1 second. A beep sounds, and after approximately 1 second another
beep sounds. Now PTT mode is engaged and you simply press the button
every time you want to talk to the Video Door Station.
If you have a back room or some other location where you
need to hear tones from the intercom, an optional Chime Extension
Speaker is available. You won't be able to respond to a visitor, but
you'll at least know someone is there so you can go to a station.
Through the extension speaker you'll hear chime tones from door station,
alarm sounds during external sensor input, audio during instant voice
call, and chime tone during room-to-room communication.
If you need an audio only station on your system, one of
those is available too. The optional Audio Sub Master Station is an
audio only sub station that can be connected in place of a sub video
monitor. The unit features a TALK button to activate the VOX or
push-to-talk style communication, separate off button, a call tone
volume and receive volume control, a call button to call master, and a
button for door release.
When optional units operate (for example, when a sensor
is activated or call button is pressed), the master monitor station and
sub master station will receive an alert sound. Also, when notification
at door is enabled, the door station also receives an alert sound.
