By RS Staff Published: May 27, 2016 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 Channel Vision has debuted two Elite Series IP-based intercom systems for single-family homes and MDU/commercial buildings. Both front door stations are equipped with built-in IP cameras that allow homeowners to receive video push notifications to their touch screen station or the new U-COM app, available for Android and iOS systems and designed specifically for the IP intercoms. As part of the Elite Series product line, all pricing is kept offline to protect the integrity of the product and receives a guaranteed warranty double that of Channel Vision’s other intercom systems. Authorized dealers can contact the company at 714.424.6500 to locate an Elite Distributor in their region. Select distributors and dealers may be eligible to apply for the Elite program by contacting a Channel Vision representative. The SI-8000 Elite IP Intercom and touch screen room stations transform front door access control into an effective means of security and surveillance by allowing homeowners to monitor who comes to their front door and control access when no one is home from the U-COM app. “The ST-8000 was designed in response to the growing demand in the marketplace of an IP-based intercom system that sends video push notifications to a Smartphone,” said Channel Vision president Darrel Hauk. “We are excited to offer an easy-to-use, attractive intercom system that provides these solutions to our clients at an affordable price.” The new IP intercom system gives users the ability to control lighting, temperature, curtains, audio, surveillance cameras, etc. from the touch screen room station or U-COM app. The ST-8000 front door stations are available now in Textured Black (ST-8282), Satin Nickel (ST-8302), and Oil Rubbed Bronze (ST-8252) finishes. The SIM Series IP Intercom offers a solution for MDU/commercial buildings. The front door station is equipped with an entry keypad, LED screen with a scrollable directory, built-in IP camera, and built-in proximity card reader. The SIM Series front door station can connect to over 900 units or office spaces that are equipped with the IP touch screen room station. Visitors enter the floor number followed by the room number to call to the room station. The resident will then be able to unlock the door from their touch screen or from the U-COM app. It offers all of the features of the SI-8000 series as well as proxy-card and keypad entry. The SIM Series intercom is slated for release in July 2016.
