Redefining intercom: Akuvox R29S smart Android video door phone

Product Profile

The world is experiencing a smart revolution. However, the intercom sector is not on the same page as this momentum in that traditional IP or even analogue systems still dominate. Akuvox aspires to open a new intercom epoch with its ground-breaking R29S, a smart Android video door phone with a large touch screen.

An elegant yet robust body elaborately converges the latest technologies in intercom, telecommunication, video surveillance, alarm systems and access control based on a fully-exploited Android OS. Combining advanced features with easy operation, it represents the highest level of its kind in the industry.

Smart phone similarities

R29S is comparable to a smart phone for use in buildings; it is natural and convenient for users to either swipe on the 7-inch touch screen to find names or to search contacts manually which are listed alphabetically in a pre-built phone book.

R29S also imports the latest facial ID authentication as an option, which is becoming popular in smart phones. With it, residents no longer have to worry about forgotten cards, passwords or mobile phones - Just smile to gain access!

Enterprise-grade quality

Akuvox started its business with SIP phone for business settings, which places high demand on the communication quality, and has been able to fuse its SIP expertise with Android for intercom. As such, the communication between R29S and other intercom devices features swift message transmission and high clarity, even in busy areas.

Building an intelligent environment

Android gives new power to R29S. Running on Android, R29S can easily connect with other security devices through its built-in interfaces or ports for enhanced security and smarter control of building surroundings. Some of these include intruder alarm, fire alarm and extra access control system.

Its integration with external IP cameras in accordance with ONVIF standards enables wider surveillance coverage and generates a greater sense of security, while its compatibility with IP phone systems via SIP means easy access to services, for example seeking help from security guards when spotting suspicious people loitering around.

Catering to unique lifestyles

SDK/Android API is offered to tech-savvy customers for personalising the function of R29S for communities from varied cultures or for diverse application scenarios, such as a customised UI that better suits the aesthetic perception and habit of usage of the local people.

These merits of R29S are what Akuvox believes to be the criteria of a fully-fledged Android intercom for the smart age. To put it simply, they offer a smooth and straightforward user experience, lifelike communication between users at intercom endpoints, smart and easy integration with other digital systems and maximum freedom in customisation and innovation.

So, are your Android intercoms the real deal?
