The Advantages of Utilizing a Control4 Door Station and Intercom System


Control4’s new Intercom Anywhere enables users to connect with a guest from anywhere globally, as other decent IP video door stations do. However, Control4 adds a layer of home automation to its new application, enabling users to start smart-home scenarios from the intercom app, such as turning on the lights or opening the door.

Users may also utilize Control4’s video door stations, inside touchscreens, and smartphones to get a whole video-intercom experience. Regardless of where they are located, they all collaborate.

Home intercoms are not a novel or ground-breaking idea. The earliest home intercoms were created in the 1890s and rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s. Intercoms have been used for decades by homeowners with big homes to talk to guests at the front door or from their family rooms.

Although Control4’s innovative technologies are bringing intercom systems into the current day, they remain as valuable as ever. Thanks to your house intercom, you may now communicate with individuals at the door station even if you’re thousands of miles away. You may also utilize the Intercom in conjunction with other home appliances by using the Control4 door station system.

Bas-IP intercoms can be quickly integrated into the control4 door station automation network. The unique driver enables door opening and camera feed viewing while integrating voice and video conversations into the Control4 touch panels. Through the Intercom Anywhere app, it is also possible to welcome guests and keep an eye on the admissions. Customers may receive calls via the Intercom and remotely operate the door on their Phones. Intercoms that accept the Control4 door station protocol provide fast and simple connection, requiring even less time for intercom installation.
