Best-in-class 2N® video intercom door stations and ekey fingerprint access devices integrate seamlessly with Crestron smart home systems to add another layer of ease and security
In Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on February 4, 2019, Crestron, the global leader in advanced smart home technology, demonstrated enhanced entry door security and convenience, which was made possible by partnerships with 2N, the largest global provider of IP intercoms, and ekey biometric systems GmbH, a leading provider of fingerprint access solutions. The latest firmware update to 2N IP-based video intercom door stations makes them Crestron Rava® SIP intercom and phone technology compliant. As a result, they integrate intuitively with Crestron TSW-x60 Series touch screens to provide a premium video intercom solution that also seamlessly integrates with third-party electronic door locks. The sleek wall-mounted ekey finger scanners integrate seamlessly with Crestron 3-Series® control systems, providing convenient one-touch door entry and enhanced security.
2N video intercom door stations
For Crestron touch screens deployed with Crestron Pyng® OS 2, the latest 2N firmware update will instantly recognize 2N video intercom door stations, so they can be deployed without the need for complex programming. A custom programming option is also available for deployment of more advanced functionality.
Key features of the Crestron and 2N solution include: support for all 2N IP models; Quick Actions to unlock third-party electronic door locks, turn on porch lights, open gates, and more; intercom-integrated access control; video monitoring on up to 16 touch screens in the home; two-way intercom call; mute while on call option; excellent intelligibility, even in noisy environments; wide-angle color camera with CCTV link; the highest durability on the market; and access via mobile utilizing the 2N mobile application.
“People want to feel safe and secure in their homes, while also enjoying more convenient entry. Crestron’s partnerships with 2N and ekey make that a reality. Even better, integration is incredibly simple,” said Michael
Short, Global Residential Marketing Manager for Crestron.
ekey fingerprint access
ekey products provide a convenient, secure, and simple alternative to conventional entry access. They leverage bio-metric processes to provide reliable added security, and make stolen keys, cards, and forgotten passwords or codes a thing of the past. It’s impossible to lock yourself out of your home, as your finger is always, literally, on hand. Intelligent software even detects the growth of children’s fingers, minor injuries, and habit changes. They provide the additional benefit of enabling building control systems to track who’s coming in. Fingerprint door entry also enhances security by eliminating hack-able 4-digit codes and the possibility of key or access card forgery.
Easy to install and administer, ekey products are currently compatible with Crestron 3-Series control systems with a RS485 COM port, and SIMPL Windows software.
