Control4 launches video intercom solutions with touch screens

Control4 uses ISE 2012 to unveil its high-performance in-wall and portable touch screens with full-motion video intercom and wideband audio for dedicated control and crystal clear communications. Residential and light commercial automation systems specialist Control4 has introduced its new video intercom solutions, which include the Control4 7-inch Portable Touch Screen with Camera, the Control4 7-inch In-Wall Touch Screen with Camera, and the Control4 Door Station. This new video intercom product family provides dedicated, always-on control functionality along with a convenient high-quality communications experience for homes and businesses. Each new product within the family features an integrated camera delivering H.264 full-motion video along with integrated speakers and dual microphones utilising beam forming and wideband audio to deliver a high-fidelity experience. With activation of a Control4 Intercom License, consumers can enable whole-home or business communications and message broadcasting, as well as the ability to control auto-answer and “do not disturb” settings.  “Our video intercom family is an exciting new addition to the Control4 offering,” says Control4 president and CEO Martin Plaehn. “By adding the Door Station and the new Touch Screens to Control4 systems, consumers are able to see and communicate with others inside and outside their homes or businesses. We’re creating an exceptional audio and video intercom experience that is completely integrated with the full Control4 automation system.” The Control4 7-inch Portable Touch Screen with Camera has a capacitive touch screen that is configurable as a portable or tabletop solution for use on a countertop, desk, end-table or nightstand. It supports Wireless-N and Ethernet connectivity, and is powered either by Power over Ethernet (PoE) or AC power options. The Portable enables seamless video-intercom interoperability with other Control4 video intercom-capable products, and audio intercom compatibility with the current 5-inch and 7-inch In-Wall Touch Screens.  The new Control4 7-inch In-Wall Touch Screen with Camera features the same design and technology as the portable for high-performance in-wall control. Rounding out the Control4 video intercom solutions is the new Control4 Door Station, providing an exceptional video intercom experience from outdoor locations such as a gate or front door — enabling consumers to see who’s requesting entry from the safety and convenience of their home or office. In addition to supporting WiFi and Ethernet connectivity, with AC or PoE options, the Door Station includes two contact sensors and one relay for monitoring as well as opening doors and gates.
