Video door entry systems are relatively simple pieces of equipment to install, based generally around x3 pieces of equipment:
- Video Door intercom system
- Screen (with door release button)
- Door release mechanism: this may be something like a ‘Maglock’ or a ‘Yale door release’
For the installation all you’re doing is connecting the door intercom to the screen and the screen (with door release button) to the door release mechanism – meaning that you can see who’s at the door and then press a button to release the lock on the door.
Video entry system & Maglock wiring diagram
The following is a diagram showing how a Maglock (magnetic lock) can be easily wired to a video door entry system – in this case, using the AccessVu system.
Maglock Z bracket fixing options
Depending on which way the door opens, will depend on how to install the maglock (magnetic lock) – and also whether you need a Z bracket or not.
The following is a diagram that gives an indication of how to mount a Maglock and use a Z bracket in the various situations . . .
