Door entry video monitor

Feature review

The AccessVu is solid, reliable and stylish.  It’s easy to install, based around a simple 2 wire wiring format i.e. there’s 2 wires that connect the door station to the monitor, controlling both picture / sound communication, along with door-release functionality (N.B. the 2 button version is based around a 4 wire system, but nothing more complicated than that).
The level of video quality is very strong, base around a CMOS digital image sensor chip.  Video works in both daylight and low-light / night-time scenarios thanks to in-built infrared lights.
The 7” video monitor gives a quality image, and includes a door-release button and screen-quality controls.
The door station comes in two different mounting options: surface mounting or flush.  There’s also two different button options: 1 button (i.e. for a single occupant dwelling) or 2 button (e.g. for a building with two separate apartments).
The build-quality of each of the parts is high.  The door station in particular is extremely robust, made out of aluminium alloy and incorporating a rain-cover, providing an IP55 rating.
