Hit two birds with one stone with door entry systems that provide the best security solution and compliance with the Disability Act for those with businesses. Door entry systems include intercoms, a technology that has revolutionized entry systems since its crude versions with front door panels and a handset that buzzes in people. Video was incorporated initially to allow you to identify who was on the other end. The live feed is now in full color. Finally digital signals have now kicked out analogue versions.
Incorporating The Telephone
Next generation intercoms have long since buried the use of dedicated handsets. The door or gate call panels were attached to a telephone line or switchboard. This more modern take on the intercom is one of the most sophisticated door entry systems that you can purchase. It is the most popular option for those who own apartment units for rent or those assigned to manage them.
As soon as a visitor presses a number assigned to a specific apartment unit, the resident’s phone number is speed-dialed and is connected to the visitor. If the resident deems the visitor a friend or harmless altogether, he may grant the visitor access by pressing zero on the telephone keypad. There are versions that has a video camera installed in the panels that provide live feed to the residents thereby providing a higher level of security.
Coded Access And Heightened Security for Homes And Businesses
More residents now choose digitally coded access in place of the traditional key. Residents may opt for a coded access or a key card access. Key cards also give off signals that allow entry into the house. In case of lost key cards, an new one is immediately issued to the resident and the old one deleted from the system completely. The system software also makes sure that residents are able to change up the telephone numbers so there’s an even added layer of security.
Door entry systems are even more ideal in a business setting. The system here is similar to systems used in apartment units and home where an entry panel is directly connected to the extension deployed inside which can be changed up to suit the owner’s needs. Therefore, in cases wherein the receptionist is out for lunch, entry calls can be diverted to another phone within the establishment. If there is however, no land line available, a GSM system will connect to a wireless mobile phone for convenience.
Benefits of Incorporating IP In Door Entry Systems
Door entry systems have indeed come a long way with using internet to access your security with a swipe on your mobile or computer devices.
