The JKS-1AD audio/video intercom set for a single door includes a surface-mount door station with camera, a master station with LCD screen, and a power supply to enable remote communication and visual identification of visitors prior to authorizing access to the building. The door station includes a 1/4" color camera with 170-degree wide-angle view that sends live video feed to a master station when a visitor presses the call button, and the white LED illuminates the visitor area to brighten the video feed in low-light environments. An incoming call activates the display on the master station's 3-1/2" LCD color monitor to aid visitor identification. The audio and video feed from the door station continues to transmit to the master station for 45 seconds if the call is not answered.
The master station answers a call by either holding down the answering button for push-to-talk action or by tapping the button for hands-free communication with the caller. The video monitor controls allow panning, tilting, and zooming of the door station's camera to customize the master operator's view of the entrance. The door-release button works with an electric strike (sold separately) to remotely unlock the entrance for the visitor. The call button initiates audio communication with a connected sub-master station (sold separately) for remote communication. The monitor button can be pressed at any time to listen and receive video feed from the door station. The chime and audio volume on the master station is adjustable. The door station housing is weather-resistant ABS plastic with a clear polycarbonate lens cover, and it surface-mounts to a single-gang box. The master station housing is ABS plastic.
