Door entry systems get the wow factor!

Steve Lucas, technical support engineer at Jung, discusses the growing demand for door entry systems and the new technology revolutionising doorstep communications

Door entry systems get the wow factor!

Door entry systems have become ubiquitous across apartment blocks today and a high-spec system can impress potential buyers and can provide that all-important selling point.

The aesthetics of door entry systems have been largely overlooked in the past but they were the starting point of the development process for the new Jung Door Entry System. The exterior units are styled with the company’s signature flat, rectangular design and both the system’s exterior and interior units are visually appealing and unobtrusive with no ugly handset or flex on the internal wall-mounted unit. The units can either be wall mounted or recessed and no screws or fixings are visible following installation, enhancing the product’s clean, contemporary lines.
The interior units have been designed for easy integration with several Jung design ranges, including the AS 500, CD and LS ranges, ensuring it fits with the property’s design style. This makes it easy to add functional technology to a property without breaking the design style.
Sound and vision

Sound and picture quality have also been sources of disappointment in the past. Poor sound quality and interference from background noise meant that many door entry systems offered only a basic level of communication. To overcome this problem the new Jung system incorporates a digital signal processor, which provides echo-free, simultaneous speech with all interference digitally filtered out.

Advances in digital camera technology have also enabled improvements in picture quality. The Jung Door Entry System combines a 1.3 megapixel camera in the exterior unit with tilt and zoom functionality, allowing the user to see the image clearly and change viewpoint or examine a detail.
All this is displayed on a 2.8in TFT colour screen, which is both the end user’s window to their doorstep and their simple to use control panel. Touch screen technology allows the user to change the camera angle, alter the volume, brightness or contrast putting control at their fingertips. They can also use the touch function on the on-screen display (OSD) to select a ring tone from 14 real tone options or to record a voice message on the system’s verbal memo pad.
Ease of installation is an important consideration for any door entry system and, in the past, by the limited range of many systems has forced the installation of multiple exterior units at a single apartment block. The Jung Door Entry System uses a six core cable, giving the system a wider range, ideal for high rise developments and those with a large number of dwellings.

Fast and simple to install, the Jung system can also be commissioned remotely via a laptop linked to the external unit, so commissioning and any re-programming can be completed without having to gain access to individual properties. And, as the system configuration is stored on a removable chip (EEPROM) – making any changes is quick and easy too.

None of the technology is new, but it is new in the context of door entry systems and, in today’s challenging property market, it could just make the difference that makes a sale for the developer.
