In its simplest form, a door entry system uses a call button at an entrance to allow the user to communicate their wish to enter through the door or at least to alert someone of their presence at the location. This part is the entrance panel.
Systems normally incorporate two-way speech to allow the user to speak with the person alerted by the call button who will normally be answering by means of a dedicated door entry handset or by a telephone / mobile phone. It is usual to be able to remotely release the door by pressing a button on the door entry handset or by pressing a speciﬁc number on their telephone / mobile phone.
It is possible to add a video system to provide images of the caller and include white light or infra-red light for viewing when it is dark.
The entry panel can also include methods to open a door or gate from the panel itself by means of a keypad or proximity reader (see our Access Control leaﬂet) which can be built into the entry panel or a separate unit installed in close proximity.
