Create a Communication Link Between Your Front Door and Your Telephones

Channel Vision TE-0212 Telephone Entry and Doorbell Kit

  • Includes the door station and telephone entry system
  • Intercom triggers phones to ring when doorbell is pressed
  • Talk to visitors before opening the door
  • Distinctive ring indicates front-door visitors

 

The Channel Vision TE-0212 Telephone Entry Kit combines the P-0920 Telephone Entry Controller with Channel Vision’s IU-0212 Intercom Door Station to create an elegant door intercom system. When the doorbell button is pressed, the phones will ring. Simply answer the phone and you will be able to speak to the person at the door.

Find out who’s at the door by answering your phone. When a visitor presses the doorbell on the Telephone Entry System Intercom, it sends a distinctive ring to every telephone in your house. This intercom integrates a weather-resistant speaker/microphone with a doorbell button, which triggers the Telephone Entry Controller to signal you through your phone lines. This system adds safety and convenience to answering the door by allowing you to speak to visitors from any phone in the house before opening your door.

Entry Access
Unlock the front door from your phone by combining the Telephone Entry Controller with a door strike relay, an electric door strike and a 16VAC power supply for the electric door strike. These components are sold separately and require a bit more wiring but once you’re done with this project, unlocking the door for your guests is a snap.

Other Features:

  • Distinctive telephone ring makes it easy to distinguish between door visitors and telephone calls
  • RJ45 & Screw terminal connections
  • No active phone line required
  • LED indicators for ringing, intercom and strike activation

With HouseLinc 2 – INSTEON Desktop Software, you can schedule the blinds to open or close according to sunrise, sunset or any other predetermined time you decide.  You can even use an INSTEON-compatible thermostat to activate a scene when an upper temperature limit is reached that will turn on the air conditioner and close the blinds simultaneously to rapidly cool down your home.
