Comelit's new video entry phone at IFSEC 2015
Comelit has added to its market-leading access control range for apartment blocks and residential complexes with the 'Mini' video door entry phone, which the company will be demonstrating at this year's IFSEC in June at London's Excel Centre.
The 'Mini' is an enhanced version of Comelit's entry-level solution, which maximises security while remaining unobtrusive.
The design enhances user convenience of the entry phone and display screen while also minimising delays for legitimate visitors and protecting against unwanted callers and would-be intruders.
The 4.3" 16:9 black and white or colour screen offers unrivalled brightness and contrast control that makes the unit clearly readable for users, even in unusual ambient light conditions. The aesthetic appeal of the 'Mini' can be optimised with ringtone and melody customisation, and compact dimensions make the units discreet. Users benefit from four touch-sensitive buttons for controlling lock release, as well as comprehensive privacy functions and options for auxiliary commands, such as calls to a switchboard.
Installers will appreciate that Comelit's 'Simplebus Top' system uses analogue 2-wire technology. This allows external and internal units to be up to 1,200 metres apart but still operate from the same riser line. At large apartment complexes with considerable distances between a building's entrance panel and the central concierge, a 2-wire system with non-polarised cables makes scalable connectivity (using several building risers if necessary) a simple matter.
The 'Mini' video entry door phones are basic units within Comelit's comprehensive catalogue, but still offer high performance. A deluxe option, finished in black, features soft-touch on the handset and eight buttons as standard with a door status indicator LED. Lock release is shown to the user by a backlit LED button.
These video entry phones offer flexible mounting options with a range of backplates and finishing accessories that enables easy switchover from legacy equipment supplied by other manufacturers.
Francesca Boeris, Sales Director, Comelit UK, said, "The 'Mini' range underlines Comelit's commitment to investing in new products while conducting extensive market research to ensure we develop offerings in line with the needs of users, installers and facility managers."
Francesca continued: "Sales of the 'Mini' are already high and it's being specified across various residential sites where users are giving outstanding feedback on experiences with the product. Comelit will be showcasing the 'Mini' at IFSEC (stand G900) and we invite the industry to a demonstration of our latest innovative monitor."
