Video colour monitors to enhance residential security

Video colour monitors

A new range of video colour monitors have been introduced to the market by Videx, strengthening the company’s presence in the video entry sector. The new monitors enhance and expand the Kristallo line of high end video monitors for residential and commercial applications.

The new model is Videx’s first 7” TFT LCD colour video monitor and complements its existing range of Kristallo videophones and audio apartment stations. The new monitor provides a larger screen and features such as touch sensitive controls, hands-free speech with simplex function, entrance recall, door release, a timed do not disturb function and the ability to intercommunicate between multiple devices.

Steve Natton, Special Projects Manager at Videx said: “Video door entry enables a resident to see and talk to callers prior to opening the door which offers enhanced security and peace of mind as the resident has the option to deny access to a caller without compromising their safety by first opening the door. The monitors allow those who live in flats or apartments to receive calls via their door entry system – such as the Kristallo videophone for instance – from one or more entrance points to their building, view (on the colour video monitor) and speak to the caller before allowing the caller access to the building. With the addition of an intercommunicating facility, residents are also able to call other Kristallo videophones and apartment stations within the same system. These could be other Kristallos within the same apartment or nearby neighbouring flats, for example.”

Currently, the video monitors are available for the VX2200 6 wire system and the VX2300 2 wire system with a 2 wire kit also available soon, enabling these monitors to be used in one apartment system all the way through to high-rise systems with up to 1,000 apartments. The monitors are also available in two finishes, white or black and in surface or flush mounting options with flush boxes available for both solid wall and dry line wall installations.

The 7” video monitor with an 800×480 pixel resolution full colour active matrix LCD screen is designed primarily for low and high-rise private developments and individual houses where an attractive functional video monitor is desirable.
