The intercoms are normally sited outside the building, such as at doors, parking barriers and other entrances. Typically, the intercoms are used by visitors or other personnel to request entry. The software is a fully-integrated component of the SMS software. It enables operators to respond to calls using the same user interface used to manage other forms of security, such as access control, intrusion and video monitoring.
This enhances operator efficiency by avoiding the need to learn and operate different systems. An incoming call is indicated by the appropriate intercom button flashing with a colored border, and by a sound, which can be different for each intercom.
The screen lists all outstanding call requests in a list box on the right-hand side of the screen. This allows the system to be used in busy environments where many incoming call requests may be made at the same time. Figure 1: Intercom Control Screen The integrated features of the software enable the operator to control other security devices while responding to a call.
For example, when answering a call, the operator is able to unlock a door, barrier or other device by clicking the Command button. Historical reporting of calls is fully integrated with the reporting features provided with the main SMS software. This allows reports of call activity to be included in reports of other security management activity. Trigger commands may, for example, be used to start a tagged CCTV recording. Figure 5 shows an example.
Here are some examples: Standardized user interface — Call requests can be managed using the same SMS software that is used to manage other forms of security, such as access control, intrusion and video monitoring. This simplifies system operation, reduces training costs and improves efficiency. Integrated control of other SMS devices — In response to calls, operators are able to unlock doors and barriers or operate other security devices connected to the security management system.
Automated control — Trigger commands can be set up to provide automatic responses to call requests. For example, a tagged CCTV recording could start when a call request is received. Standardized reporting — Call activity can be reported using the same screens and report layouts used for other security activity reporting.
Easy management of busy sites — Multiple calls from different locations can be easily managed from a single screen. A dedicated Intercom Control screen displays and prioritizes all call requests. Call handling from Graphics — Operators can respond to calls from a plan, picture or map of the site.
