Videx has added features to its IPure IP range for door entry. The Videx IP system can be customised to accommodate up to 42 apartments using conventional call button modules and vandal resistant panels or a digital call panel option able to call up to 10,000 apartments. All entrance panels come with voice annunciation to aid visitors during the call progress and proximity access control.
The new features include a seven-inch touch screen handsfree video monitor, a 3.5-inch touch screen hands-free video monitor, an audio IP telephone; and the Cloudbox, which allows more programmable input/output to be added to the system as well as being a gateway to using the app in apartments which don’t have a video monitor. The new hands free video monitors complement the existing 3.5-inch touch screen videophone with handset. Up to 16 devices can be included in each apartment with cascading if required.
James Gray, National Sales Manager at Videx, said: “IP controlled entry is one of the most convenient and flexible solutions available. The huge benefit of IP technology is that it doesn’t require dedicated wiring infrastructure and can be used on existing networks. These networks can be shared with other technologies such as CCTV, building management and many others including FTTH/PON infrastructures.
“By adding even more features to our IP offering, we’re offering great flexibility and greater convenience. A new user interface has been introduced which complements the look and feel of the system across all platforms and can also be rolled out to existing systems through a firmware upgrade.
“What’s more, our IP system is managed through a simple PC wizard programme which allows the installer or engineer to completely customise the system to the building’s requirements. The wizard will detect all the devices on the system allowing each to be setup as required and will also advise of any new firmware available. Using the wizard, the system can be connected to the cloud allowing users of the iOS and Android apps to receive calls, recall entrance panels with video and activate any of the outputs.”
SIP is now supported across the range allowing it to be integrated into third party SIP telephones. For further integration, the door panels now include an RTSP server allowing video to be streamed to third party systems and http api to be used by third party systems.
The seven-inch monitor with touch screen also has added features. These include third party camera integration using RTSP with support for H264 and H265 video compression standards, home automation integration, picture in picture viewing, a web server to access event logs, captured images and videos to play back and an optional Wifi connection. Further features can be added with a firmware upgrade.
