TCP/IP SIP Colour Video Intercom System (VoIP)
The 700 Series SIP Touch Screen Colour Video Intercom system uses standard Cat5 cable to connect each terminal. The terminals use standard IP to communicate and the same protocols as Voice over IP to establish calls. The system requires standard networking components found in any SOHO network to be fully operational.
The screen background is fully customisable for customers who would like a specific style or logo on their displays. We have supplied Touch Screen panels with different backgrounds for property developers and home owners who wish to carry over their own style and create a unique system for their customers. We believe this to be unique in the industry.
Each panel has additional input terminals for alarm inputs from devices such as smoke alarms, door and window switches, movement sensors and these can be setup in up to 8 alarm zones with remote management through a management console. Up to 8 IP cameras (Onvif protocol or RTSP) may also be added to each panel to allow a comprehensive alarm system. We have tested this feature with Grandstream GXV generation SIP cameras configured with movement detection zones with impressive results – see our video page for demonstration of this and other features. These cameras stream and also have SIP call capability providing several ways to access the video from the panel. The IR illuminated door station video may also be accessed at any time providing another source of security.
Intercom calls between intercom panels and from other devices such as door access panels and gate keypads (video) may be recorded and missed calls are recorded for later review. Any call from an outdoor panel will result in a snapshot of the caller for security or identity purposes. Missed calls may also be transferred to another panel or a phone when integrated into a SIP phone system.
Indoor intercom panels may be setup so that video from a CCTV camera is shown on a call prior to answering rather than video from the door station. This is called pre-video and is normally shown from the door station as a security feature i.e. you can see the visitor and choose not to answer so they do not find out you are home. With pre-video you can show cctv video instead. This may be a wider view cctv camera or a carpark camera for example that will give you a wider view so you can see other activity. An example might be a commercial warehouse where a cctv camera view of the outside of the warehouse will reveal if others are out of view of the door station video. The cctv camera must be a compatible IP camera. See the manuals and data sheets in our online store for more details.
Gates or doors may be opened remotely from the indoor panel when a call is received.
Up to 6 indoor monitors may share the same address eg. each monitor will ring when the address is called and each may call the other monitor as an internal intercom system. This has been used to provide extensions in the home office, bedroom, and workshop to ensure users never miss a call.
A multimedia player is included and photos, video or audio may be played from a removable SD card.
A remote management server (not required) provides additional functionality; short text messages may be addressed to individual or all panels, advertising may be shown when the panel has been idle for a period of time. The management server also monitors alarms on the indoor panels providing additional security for apartment blocks or gated communities.
Home automation functionality (coming soon) will allow lighting, curtains, power, and IR remote control from the same system and an IOS and Android App that allows remote control and visibility of calls, automation, and alarms.
Touch screens come in a range of colours and sizes. The image above is the 10 inch White HK16 touch screen (popular) and is also available in Black, Silver, and Gold. Another popular model is the 7 inch H5 model that comes with power over ethernet (PoE) and may be wall mounted or with a desk stand. We stock these in Black as the most popular model.
Build – These systems are made in China for multi-dwelling installations (Units and Apartments). They are commercial grade and made to a high standard. We disassembled to compare quality of design and construction and materials of several systems and found these systems to be superior in all areas. They do cost more as a result with the payback in reliability and performance. If you are a commercial operator we know you will understand the value of high performance, quality construction, and high reliability when making your selection.
The 700 series outdoor panels provide access control over an IP network using SIP protocol to establish calls. High quality video with illumination provides security to the called party. A snapshot is taken when the call is made for security purposes and systems may be setup to use swipe cards as well as remote access control.
A range of different styles of panel is available to suit the users decor and environmental conditions. The images above show the A3K access panel suited to gated communities or multi-tenanted units or apartment blocks. The single button C3 panel is suited for dedicated access such as a home / unit / apartment doorbell or access control to Gymnasium or Swimming Pool or other access controlled facility.
The camera on the C3 may be accessed by the associated indoor panel at any time providing additional security to the user.
Swipe card access is an option on these models managed through a central server providing a quick and easy way to add or delete cards from the entire network ensuring lost cards are deactivated as soon as detected.

“I have just installed the C5 Sip intercom panel from Steve and the team from activeonline.com.au. The intercom works really well with my SIP PBX and I can now answer the door from any SIP phone. This product was exactly what I was looking for, and was very reasonably priced.”
