Connect 2N® Helios IP Intercoms to an External Camera
Is security a priority for you? Do you need a better idea of what’s going on in front of your building, office or entrance? Then you’ll certainly appreciate the fact that 2N® Helios IP Vario, 2N® Helios IP Force, 2N® Helios IP Safety and 2N® Helios IP Video Kit intercoms with version 2.5.0 firmware can now be connected to an external IP camera from Axis or Grandstream.
When talking to a visitor, you therefore obtain the best possible view of events around your door, and you won’t be surprised by a thief or assailant hidden in a blind camera angle or round the corner of your building. A suitably placed external camera, in combination with a camera integrated in the intercom, will simply reveal any such aggressor.
The same as for an integrated camera, you can display the feed from an external camera on a wide range of communication devices. These primarily include IP video phones, PCs with the 2N® Helios IP Eye application, tablets and smartphones with the 2N® Helios IP Mobile application or the 2N® Helios IP Indoor Touch panel. In addition, you can control the camera and switch between images from any IP or software phone. Naturally, you can also use the feed from the external camera when not talking to a visitor, for example to stream video to CCTV or for home automation needs.
The function for connecting an external camera is part of the specialised licence for Enhanced Video intercoms. Cameras with MotionJPEG support are connectable.
