How to install the 2N IP Style Door Intercom

This Step-by-Step guide leads you through the simple, innovative installation process for the flagship 2N IP Style smart door intercom.

How to correctly install the 2N IP Style

There are two mounting options for the 2N IP Style - it can be easily installed in either surface or flush-mount format, dependent upon the location and wall material the door intercom device will be located upon.

When purchasing a 2N IP Style device, you will also need to order either a surface-mount back box (Part Number 9157002) or flush-mount back box (Part Number 9157001)

2N IP Style - surface installation

Surface mounting the IP Style intercom unit is the simplest and quickest installation format (needing no cut-outs in the wall) and requires only half of the same steps as the flush installation.

For flush installation, you need a flush mount box (9157001) in addition to the intercom unit itself. The basic step instructions on how to install are on the lids of the product boxes; however it is recommended to open the installation manual on 2N's 'our wiki' page.

Steps to install 2N IP Style:

1. Check what's inside the flush mount back box carton and the IP Style packaging.

7. Use a levelling key to check the height of the detent embedding to make sure the key is aligned with the mounting box edge and the detent surface. If the detent seems too deep untighten the screws to remove the tent fixture.
