However, comparable systems are available: the JO Series Mobile App Capable Video Doorbell or, if PC-based masters are required, use the IS Series Flexible Hardwired Intercom with IP Capability.
The JO Series offers the best of both worlds: the reliability of a hard-wired master station AND the convenience of a mobile app. The JO Series Video Doorbell with Mobile App Capability is the solution for on-the-go home- and small-business owners.
Whether it's a delivery or an unexpected visitor, your customers can choose to see and speak with their guests – and unlock the door – while onsite using the hard-wired master station or remotely with the mobile app. The interior master station ensures calls from the door station will not be missed, even when internet is down or slow. If the mobile app is not required, a standard interior master station without mobile app capability is also available.
The JO Series is available at a one-time cost without long-term contracts or fees.
The IS Series is a hardwired and network-based all-in-one intercom solution.
The IS Series offers hardwired and network-based intercom options for entry security, internal communication, rescue assistance, paging, and bell/chime scheduling. It is unique in its ability to provide hardwired, exchange-based intercoms, network-based remote intercoms, and the flexibility to integrate both styles to grant remote access control, assist onsite visitors from an offsite location, broadcast emergency announcements, and communicate using a traditional or software-based master station.
Production has ceased on these models and inventory will not be replenished. When specifying a system, please be sure to check availability as no further announcement of stock levels will be made.
