People work in buildings. This means that buildings must provide protection and safety, both everyday and in an emergency. The core element of the system is the central, multi-functional Control Room, which keeps every part of the building and associated premises in view, guaranteeing the required high level of security discreetly and unobtrusively with a well-chosen set of additional functions.
Applications and benefits
- Automatic playback of voice messages to welcome visitors
- Access control
- Optional automatic CCTV/video activation
- Perfect communication and smooth workflows despite background noise (e. g., traffic noise)
- At the entrance, visitors can select the person to speak to on a touch screen, make the call, and view details on how to find their way around the building.
- The “Duetto” Control Desk System at the other end of the line is also equipped with a touch screen. It provides easy menu navigation with graphical elements and even allows for displaying live video streams.
In case a lift gets stuck, compact built-in Lift Intercom stations offer superior speech quality and the assurance that instant help is never more than the push of a button away. Lift users can get in touch with Control Desk staff, so that help is deployed and a panic can be avoided.
- Integration of video management systems into the Intercom platform
- IP loudspeakers and amplifiers for Public Address purposes
- Incoming calls can be switched through automatically along with video images; cameras can be conveniently pan/tilt/zoom controlled from the Control Desk.
In and around buildings, natural communication and clear intelligibility are essential. Information arrives loud and clear without the need to check back, so mishearing or misunderstandings are eliminated As a result, not a single word or precious second is lost in emergency situations.
- In an emergency, Control Centre staff can assess the situation instantly and take action without delay.
- Public Address at optimised volume levels to ensure that important announcements are never drowned out by background noise (for example, in situations such as parents looking for their child in a building complex).
