New App for Videx GSM Intercom Range
Videx, a leading manufacturer and supplier in access control and door entry kits, has added a new app to its flagship GSM intercom range, the popular entry systems that provide greater security and freedom to users.
The new app simplifies programming and usability for both end users and installers. Available for iOS and Android devices, the app allows you to program the GSM intercom system by automatically creating the SMS messages.
James Gray project manager at Videx said: "The app is a great addition to the Videx GSM product range, enhancing the features while also providing a convenient way to manage and operate the system.
"Features include the ability to activate the door or gate either for the programmed time or to latch and unlatch it. This can be done via text message or dialling using the dial to open feature. You can also add and modify numbers called, the dial to open numbers, access codes including temporary access codes for one-time visitors, as well as proximity tags that are used to open the gate or door."
Up to 10 GSM intercoms can be stored in the app. Settings such as master code, telephone number, call button telephone numbers and free access settings are all stored to save the user time while using the app. An advanced version of the app will also be available soon with even more features for the installer or managing agent of the system.
The app is not restricted to the GSMPRO version of the Videx GSM intercom systems and can also be used with the Digital GSM, vandal resistant GSM's, multiple entrance 2270 interface and the GSM lite.
James added: "Users can also set up free access time periods where the gate or door can be held open for visitors. The ability to decode received messages from the intercom panel is also included and some of these messages can also be imported and saved in the app for future use. For example, if the intercom call button has already been programmed it's possible to receive the telephone numbers for the call button and import them into the app."
Users will be able to download the app directly from Google's 'Play store' and Apple's 'App store' free of change. The app can be used with all current and older model GSM intercoms.
