New video door entry system
September 2017, Access Control & Identity Management
Legrand’s new Classe 300 connected video door entry system has advanced design features, coupled with the latest technology, to offer the highest levels of security control in modern living environments.
The Classe 300X13E video internal unit, with integrated Wi-Fi connectivity, a smartphone and a dedicated app, ensures every installation is totally automated and easily managed, either from inside the home, or at a distance.
According to the Legrand design team, all functions in the installation connected to the 2-wire video door entry system can be controlled by a smartphone. With the dedicated BTicino Cloud and remote connection, users can manage calls, open the gate, activate internal and external cameras, operate lighting and control timed actuators of a sprinkler system.
The compact Classe 300X13E video internal unit has a 7-inch screen display and is available in a light or dark finish, with a modern glass effect. It can be wall mounted or rest on a table on a supporting frame. Functions are activated by means of touch-sensitive keys to control the main video door entry functions. Tactile guides for easy recognition include a door lock release, camera activation, favourites for configuration and a hands-free communication facility.
This system, with Wi-Fi connectivity integrated in the video internal unit, does not require configuration and needs no IT skills. Once the Wi-Fi connection on the home network is activated and the configure key is pressed, the Door Entry App will search for the Classe 300X13E and will automatically connect and self configure.
The video internal unit transfers all con-figuration of the 2-wire video door entry system – cameras, door locks and activations – to the app and updates automatically after each modification.
The user interface is designed with the most commonly used functions on the home screen. These include app settings, camera display, door lock management and call home directly. It is also possible to display the mobile devices associated to the video internal unit and disconnect or cancel these at any time.
Intuitive access to all functions include allowing access to visitors, answering calls, adjusting screen settings and changing ringtones. To see what is happening outside, it is easy to look at pictures from the external pushbutton panel camera or from the camera connected to the system. Users are able to communicate with other rooms of the home, or other homes and can mute sound when necessary. An answering system function records film clips of visitors and also allows outgoing messages to be recorded.
It is easy to update and replace an existing outdated internal unit or video internal unit with Classe 300, without the need for extra wiring, as long as there is Wi-Fi connectivity. The 2-wire technology of this system is also suitable for renewing the entire system.
In a nutshell, the smartphone is an inter-communicating terminal with the video internal unit. This system, which is supported throughout the country by Legrand, gives users the flexibility to answer the video door entry system from any room of the home, while in the office and even when away on holiday. Users can also open gates, activate cameras, operate lighting and control sprinkler systems.
