All In One-Home Automation, Access Control and Video

At last month's IFSEC conference, hosted May 11 through 13 in Langmeil, Germany, Mobotix showcased their Hemispheric IP Video Door Station T24 with access control as well as additional home automation components that enable the station to be controlled using a smartphone. The T24 captures the entire entrance area without any blind spots, from wall to wall, floor to ceiling. When the doorbell rings, a connection is established with a VoIP video phone, a standard computer or tablet computer via the network. This makes it possible to gain audio and video access to the door station from anywhere in the world. Digital voice messages can be left at the door station and accessed later. Access rights can also be customized conveniently and easily by entering a PIN code or using an RFID transponder. Events outside the building's door can be recorded continuously or on an event-controlled basis with lip-synchronized sound automatically on integrated memory.
