IP to the door
October 2012, Products
The T24 IP Video Door Station is a video door intercom, with a recently released RFID access module (keypad), the Security Door Opener and the two-wire network module (Mx2wire info module). The new IP telephony standard enables the user to establish a direct connection from the Door Station to any VoIP phone or any computer or smartphone running VoIP software. This means that with appropriate network infrastructure, the user can establish a video connection, remotely open doors or view stored video messages and review recordings from anywhere in the world.
Mobotix hemispheric camera technology enables the user to view the entire area in front of the building in the video. This means that the image section can always be focused on any area of interest, regardless of the distance between the Door Station and the door itself. The image is tilted and zoomed electronically without any mechanical movement, meaning that there is no wear and tear to the camera and no maintenance is required. In addition, the system allows users to return to the recording at a later time and view all areas of the video, all the way down to the floor in front of the camera – even if the video at the time of the actual recording was focused on the visitor’s face.
The Door Station can be accessed from anywhere in the world, as the IP telephone connection is established automatically via the network. This means that central control units and computers are not required for operation. The Door Station consumes very little power (around five watt-hours), which is provided directly via the Ethernet cable. The automatic installation enables the user to set up the system quickly and easily without the need for extensive network knowledge.
All data transmissions to and between the modules are encrypted and the access rights are stored and checked from a secure location indoors. Even in the case of a complete power failure, the RFID access module – in connection with the rechargeable battery of the Security Door Opener – ensures up to 60 hours of keyless access. As standard, the individual modules of the Door Station are equipped with electromagnetic anti-theft protection to secure them against unauthorised removal.
The RFID access module enables keyless access using a card transponder or by entering a PIN number. Access requests are encrypted and transferred to the Security Door Opener via a two-wire cable and once the access request is cleared, the door opens. Moreover, visitors can leave their own messages or view video messages that were left for them.
The Security Door Opener contains all PIN numbers, transponder data and access times for opening the door. Since this module is installed indoors and no relevant access data is stored outdoors, the Door Station is secure against theft and manipulation. In addition, the module functions as a doorbell and the user can select from a wide range of different ring tones. It is not necessary to connect an extra power source to operate the electrical door opening and closing mechanism, because the Security Door Opener generates the required voltage with its integrated rechargeable battery.
The two-wire network module, an illuminated door sign that can replace the simple info module of the Door Station, supplies power to the module and establishes the network connection via two standard bell wires. This way, the station can be integrated in any older building, either as an on-wall or in-wall version.
