The VIP Vision™ Video Residential Kit – IP Intercom with WiFi is an ideal single monitor/door-station video intercom solution for residential applications.
The system comprises of a compact, gloss black door station and a 7” touchscreen white indoor monitor. Connect the door station and monitor using supplied Cat5e cable (30m) or remotely via WiFi or individually to the internet router. The door station features a 1.3 megapixel, low-light camera. The intercom kit integrates with most electronic door strikes and sensors.

Once connected you can receive calls, open the door / gate (requires electronic lock / strike), and monitor the intercom from your smart phone. This is a free service, no subscription required.

Connecting IP Intercom with WiFi
We recommend you use cables wherever possible with your intercom. The rapid increase in devices connecting to WiFi, especially now that video streaming is common, has made WiFi difficult for intercom systems. The need for clean WiFi is becoming impossible as the 2.4GHz band travels through walls and floors including from the neighbors. This creates large amounts of noise which particularly affects real-time communications (as different from streamed video which can be buffered and delayed). If you live in a remote location you may find no issue. We will assist to some extent but we cannot guarantee a WiFi system will work in every home and ask buyers to beware. These systems if cabled work extremely well and it is well worth the extra effort to install with cables.
WiFi extenders add extra latency and noise to the system and generally do not assist the situation. The only recommendation we have for WiFi is as part of a Wireless Bridge where the bridge acts like a cable in the air and each end is connected by cable. See this article.
The Video IP intercom with WiFi is connected with WiFi (please see above) or alternatively through a RJ45 connector on the rear. Connect the door station directly to the monitor with supplied cat5e cable for a basic self contained intercom system. Note that the remote view App will not function in the direct connection connection configuration as the systems needs to connect to the internet for remote view. Connect to your local network via a router or switch or WiFi to enable remote view. Power the monitor and door station by the included power supplies or by connection to a Power Over Ethernet capable switch. Please contact us to understand your options. See Connection Options Tab above for more information.
The door station is operated simply via a single backlit button whilst the indoor monitor uses a resistive touchscreen. The system supports door sensor and door strike integration, remote unlock, missed/placed/received call details, visitor audio/video messaging and group calling functions.
Monitor you CCTV cameras, integrate security and safety sensors into your display to secure your home.
Capabilities of this intercom kit extend beyond the home and into everyday life. Remote connect to your intercom system from anywhere with your Android or iOS device (iPad, iPhone).
