This is an easy to use and simple to install system that we have sold and installed for over 20 years. They seem to hold up forever. The system includes one deluxe inside unit
with volume control and door release button and an outside weatherproof door station. Also includes the power supply.
The system uses
4 wires. The lock release feature usually works with an electric strike. This is not included with the intercom system.
If you plan on using en electric strike for lock release and are not sure which to choose please email or call us. Please note that the strike open button on the intercom is only a switch unless you use an AC electric strike. Since the intercom is powered and comes with an AC transformer it can also power an AC electric strike. But...for various reasons AC strike are not popular and not used very often. You must also use an additional transformer or power supply - usually 12 vdc - if a DC electric strike will be used.
What is included with this system?:
A Master Inside Control Box - this is the unit that controls the system. It has 3 functions. It can be used to TALK with the slave unit, CALL the slave unit or SEND a signal to an opener to open a lock, or gate opener that will release a door or gate.
An outdoor Slave/Door Release Box - this is the piece that is mounted close to the door or gate. It has one button that can buzz the Master Control Box. This is the unit that a visitor will use to communicate with you from the gate or door.
A transformer, which supplies power to the Master Control Box only. Additional power is needed for the electric strike unless you use an AC electric strike.
