Urmet has added to its range of residential door entry monitors with the Miro hands-free video entry phone. The unit is compatible with Urmet’s 2-wire system (2-Voice) and other external entry panels. This colour indoor station allows installers to give both clients and end-users the latest functions while still using only two non-polarised wires, the makers say.
The entry product lets residents view callers on a 4.3-inch 16:9 colour monitor and talk with them via intercom before granting or refusing access. Features include auto door open, if no interaction at the door phone is required; built-in induction loop for hearing aids; ringer selection; image adjustment; and panic call to a concierge switchboard. Three extra buttons are available for non-standard functions, such as extra entrance opening, staircase light control and gate automation.
The hands-free unit features two buttons for connection with modules that allow automation of common activities within an apartment. Typically these are opening and shutting roller blinds and the switching or dimming of lights.
The door station heads the group of 2-Voice-compatible indoor stations, which are graduated according to budget. For mid-range sites, installers may opt for the Miro Video, a colour non-hands-free model with hand-set which also features a 4.3-inch 16:9 colour monitor and broadly similar functions to the hands-free version (excluding modules allowing home automation).
The range addresses the social and affordable housing sector with an audio-only door entry phone which also includes three auxiliary buttons for non-standard functions, has an ‘auto-on’ facility and integrated induction loop for hearing aid users.
The two-wire approach according to the company is ideal for new-build projects as well as for refurbishments where use of the existing cable system means equipment can be upgraded with no structural change to the building or disruption for occupants.
The Miro can be wall-or flush-mounted and easily programmed using a DIP-switch. A 2-Voice system using these entry phones and Urmet’s external two-wire entrance panels can enable a site to accommodate up to 4096 users.
Mark Hagger, Urmet’s Sales and Marketing Director, said: “The Miro range has been strengthened following feedback from our client base that a two-wire installation is often the ideal approach for both new sites and retro fit. The Miro range now offers three different levels of entry phone for budget, mid-range and high-end properties, which are ideal counterparts for our 2-wire compatible entrance panels.”
