About – An external panel component of the Entry system. This panel option can open opportunities at sites where vandal resistant capabilities are a prerequisite. With a market leading IK10 impact rating, the VR panel is made from marine grade stainless steel to meet the most demanding environments. All Entry panels are IPX5 rated, making them suitable for external use in all weather conditions. Installation – Entry components simply interconnect using Cat5 or standard RJ45 terminated patch cables. Entry can also utilise existing network infrastructure for simple installation. PoE technology runs power and data along the same cable to avoid the need for separate power supplies. The rain hood version is mounted directly on the surface of the wall so that it is protruding, with an additional 41mm mantel to protect the screen and keypad from the rain. For multiple panel entrances, more than one panel can be associated with an ACU. A secondary IP camera can also be installed and integrated with the Entry system to allow extra security in areas of restricted visibility. This provides flexibility with the option to switch between the two cameras on the Entry Monitor. Operation – A visitor initiates a video call via the bell button on the external panel. Visitor access can be granted via the Entry monitor, which features an intuitive touchscreen user interface. The internal monitor can be used via either the handset for private calls or in hands free mode. When connected to Net2, access to the building can be gained by using a PIN, Code and/or proximity token (including MIFARE® and Paxton tokens).
