Videx expands Digital Door Entry Panel Range
Videx introduced a new series of digital door entry panels with advanced features for building access control.
The 4212 panel is vandal resistant and best suited to low, medium and high-rise apartments, student accommodation, business establishments and housing association properties. It adds to the existing Videx range of digital door panels but carries better, more advanced features. It is also Secured by Design accredited, the Police initiative for designing out crime through physical security.
Steve Natton, Special Projects Manager at Videx, said:
“The 4212 includes many new features that makes the process of calling an apartment from an entrance easier. These include a graphical LCD screen which displays text and intuitive icons during the calling progress. The voice annunciation feature verbally guides the visitor through the process of calling an apartment. What’s more, the backlit keypad with piped number 5 key not only allows the keypad to be used when lighting is poor but also aids visually impaired visitors, making it fully compliant to the Disability Discrimination guidelines under The Equality Act 2010.”
Further features include an integrated wide angle (155°) 570k pixel camera and proximity reader. The 4212, which is capable of calling up to 1,000 apartments, includes coded access for up to 2,800 codes. Proximity access can be self-contained for up to 2,800 users or the integral reader can be used with the Portal Plus access control system or third party access control supporting the Wiegand protocol.
“The 4212 carries a number of features that makes the door entry system a lot easier to use, helping manage access control better. For example, the name scroll facility enables a more seamless approach to entry. The wide-angle day/night camera includes infra-red illumination and will automatically switch from colour to grey scale in poor lighting conditions to give a crisper image. Programming can be carried out using either the keypad and LCD display or through the USB port and PC software. The PC software enables all programming and management of the door panel while also allowing a custom logo to be imported and displayed on the LCD display. When using the proximity access control facility in self-contained mode the PC software will also allow a USB desk mount proximity reader to be connected to simplify the adding of new proximity fobs and cards.”
The panels are available in flush or surface variants and in the standard vandal resistant form or in the 4000 series frame.
