Intratone, one of Europe’s largest access control specialists, has launched its new V4 Video Intercom Panel at the Chartered Institute of Housing’s (CIH) Conference and Exhibition, which took place at Manchester Central from 26th to 28th June.
The V4 is aimed at private property managers, the new design includes a handsfree fob reader that allows residents to open the door when stood within one metre. From an installers point of view, the panel is fixed on a hinge so during installation it opens outwards for easier maintenance. The panel features a 3G and 4G module, invisible pinhole camera, coded keypad with 12 back-lit keys with name scroll, and hands-free proximity reader.
Intratone’s wireless intercoms (Audio and video DDA compliant intercoms); access control systems (coded keypad and proximity reader); and its digital noticeboard, which enables users to achieve better communication with residents, will also be demonstrated live on the stand.
Dan Bacon, Area Sales Manager at Intratone, says their products offer the greatest ease of use for housing associations or facilities managers and their residents: “If a resident loses a fob, their property manager or housing association is instantly and remotely able to establish the identity of the fob and disable it for future use. A new fob can be easily activated on the free and secured INTRATONE cloud-based management site and sent out to that individual. This saves time and money and enhances the security of each property.”
Cost-efficiency benefits can also be achieved with Intratone’s technology: since there is no handset for its intercoms, maintenance and hardware costs are kept minimal. The requirement for overall systems’ maintenance is virtually non-existent as everything is managed on a secure free of charge web platform.
Intratone’s UK export team were be present including Jack Wylie, Regional Sales Manager for the North of England, who was on hand to answer any questions.
