Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI), a control and automation manufacturer for residential and commercial settings, has announced new video intercom support for select RTI controllers and third-party intercom-enabled devices. Ideal for front door access, security gates, intra-office, and room-to-room applications, this new capability allows users to conveniently and safely communicate from point-to-point via their RTI devices.
Video intercom-enabled controllers
"The demand for intercom continues to increase, and we are pleased to add video functionality across a range of RTI devices," said Mike Everett, Vice President of Global Sales for RTI. "Our lineup of video intercom-enabled controllers includes wired and wireless interfaces, which allows our dealers to offer their clients convenient communications between their RTI devices and third-party door stations."
RTI's video intercom capabilities are supported on the KX3, KX7, and KX10 in-wall touchpanels, the CX7 and the upcoming CX10 countertop/under-cabinet touchpanels, as well as the company's flagship T3x – delivering the company's first video intercom-enabled handheld controller. Via a free firmware update, dealers can also leverage video communications on compatible devices that support H.264-based video intercom via SIP. These devices also support auto answer or do not disturb modes, while a push-to-talk audio mode lets users communicate via voice only from device to device.
