Crestron enhances entry door security and convenience with two new partnerships
Crestron is demonstrating its enhanced entry door security and convenience at ISE 2019.
The latest firmware update to 2N IP-based video intercom door stations makes them Crestron Rava SIP intercom and phone technology compliant.
As a result, they integrate intuitively with Crestron TSW-x60 Series touch screens to provide a premium video intercom solution that also seamlessly integrates with third-party electronic door locks.
The wall-mounted ekey finger scanners integrate with Crestron 3-Series control systems to provide convenient one-touch door entry and enhanced security.
Crestron global residential marketing manager Michael Short says people just want to be able to feel safe in their homes but not have a complicated entry.
“Crestron’s partnerships with 2N and ekey make that a reality. Even better, integration is incredibly simple,” he says.
For Crestron touch screens deployed with Crestron Pyng OS 2, the latest 2N firmware update will instantly recognise 2N video intercom door stations, so they can be deployed without the need for complex programming. A custom programming option is also available for deployment of more advanced functionality.
The Crestron and 2N solution includes features like support for all 2N IP models; Quick Actions to unlock third-party electronic door locks, turn on porch lights, open gates, intercom-integrated access control, video monitoring on up to 16 touch screens in the home, two-way intercom call, mute while on call option, excellent intelligibility even in noisy environments, wide-angle colour camera with CCTV link, the highest durability on the market and access via mobile using the 2N mobile application.
ekey products provide a convenient, secure, and simple alternative to conventional entry access. They leverage biometric processes to provide reliable added security. Intelligent software even detects the growth of children’s fingers, minor injuries and habit changes. They provide the additional benefit of enabling building control systems to track who’s coming in. Fingerprint door entry also enhances security by eliminating hackable 4-digit codes and the possibility of key or access card forgery.
Easy to install and administer, ekey products are currently compatible with Crestron 3-Series control systems with a RS485 COM port, and SIMPL Windows software.
