In a residential building, some property owners prefer traditional door phones or telephones because they are more affordable. Other neighbours want to install door entry monitors because they offer more advantages for the community. What is the best solution when it comes to choose a door entry system?
The most important competitive advantage of the video door entry system for the community is the security and peace of mind that it offers to residents. With a monitor, the user can see who is calling the door or see who is entering the community.
In both cases, telephone or monitor, it is no longer necessary to debate the door entry system in the building. The new generation of the Smart System DUOX by FERMAX opens a door to solve this 'conflict of interests'. With DUOX, residents can install a door phone or monitors - they can choose which best suits their needs. Furthermore, if at the beginning the user wants to install a telephone, it is possible to change later to a video door entry system or a monitor, because it is very easy to do so without any work nor problems for the neighbours.
The flexibility and versatility of DUOX, the first full digital technology in 2 wires (non-polarised), makes the system compatible with small, medium or large buildings, individual homes, residential complexes or any other type of construction for residential or commercial use. This technology offers great capacities for up to 10 general entrances, up to 10 outdoor panels per interior block, 2 conversation channels working at the same time and complete communication privacy.
DUOX is an advanced technology, but at the same, it is easy to install and easy to use. This full digital door entry system reduces installation's errors and costs. With a basic wiring of only 2 non-polarised wires, there is no need to include intermediate elements as switchers or distributors, as required in the analogic installations.
Full digitalisation of audio, video and data
With DUOX by FERMAX,
DUOX transforms the communications in a building because of its low price and simplified installation. The new generation of this system presents a more powerful amplifier, offering a wide vision thanks to the wide-angle camera, which is able to function even in low-lighting conditions, giving a nitide image.
The homogeneus audio and video quality of DUOX is due to the complete digitalisation of data, making its capacity almost unlimited and offering communications without interference. By incorporating a DUOX door entry system in the building, the community will be ready for future advances in installations and improvements in domestic communication. DUOX is the first step that prepares homes, buildings and residential complexes for next innovations and functionalities in the smart homes era.
Compatible technology with exisiting wiring
DUOX is the first full digital ‘Smart System’ that uses only 2 non-polarised wires. This technology is compatible with existing cabling of previous installations, including twisted pair wiring, 5 wires, Cat 5, 4+n, or even a simple doorbell cable, if the existing wiring is well-preserved. If necessary, DUOX offers to splice cables with no loss of quality of communication, because the smart system presents an excellent stability of transmission.
So, what is the best for a residential community? Door phone or monitor? The best solution is to leave this decision to the property owners. When installing an outdoor panel with a camera, each user can choose between security and advanced features, or the most cost-effective option.
