Crestron and 2N Design New Security at Entry Doors

2N is now a Crestron integration partner and the latest firmware update to 2N video intercom door stations makes them compliant with Crestron Rava SIP intercom and phone technology. As a result, they integrate with Crestron TSW-x60 Series touch screens for a video intercom solution that also integrates with third-party electronic door locks.

For Crestron touch screens deployed with the Crestron Pyng OS 2 operating system, the latest 2N firmware update will instantly recognize 2N video intercom door stations, so they can be deployed without the need for 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 (no access via the Crestron app).

Here are all the details.
