CIE picks up Best Security Solution at Smart Building Awards 2021 for Akuvox R29 Smart IP Door Intercom.
CIE has added to its growing collection of industry accolades, this time picking-up the Best Security Solution at the Smart Building Awards 2021 for the highly innovative Akuvox R29 Smart IP Door Intercom.
The Smart Building Awards, which recognises the best in the UK residential AV & smart home industry, were held in Farnborough this September, in front of the industry's leading integrators, distributors and manufacturers.
Akuvox is the latest brand to be added to the CIE product range and is one of the leading global brands for IP intercoms, access control and telephony equipment.
The Akuvox R29C is not your average metal box and keypad door intercom device; in fact there is no conventional keypad! This smart IP intercom device is controlled via the full colour 7" capacitive touchscreen. The huge range of identifcation features are what makes the R29C/R29CB one of the most innovitative IP Intercom devices yet. These features include: pin code access, concierge call button, multi-frequency RFID card reader and digital touchscreen phone book as standard.
But what makes the Akuvox R29C Smart Intercom so unique on the market is the inclusion of secure infrared face recognition identification and QR Code access scanning.
One of the most unique features of the R29C/R29CB is secure infrared face recognition, just like the technology used in latest-generation smart phones. The R29C/R29CB Smart IP Intercom is the very first door entry unit on the market to have this technology feature!
The facial recognition feature is hands-free making it the perfect hands-free access solution, supporting a COVID-secure contactless pathway through the building. Simply walk up to the 120 degree camera and it will recognise you (or not if you are a complete stranger)
Another unique feature of the Akuvox R29C/R29CB IP Intercom is its QR code recognition for temporary access permissions. The QR code recognition is perfect for delivery access or service engineer access.
To use this feature you simply generate a unique QR code using the Akuvox Smart Plus app. After the QR code is produced you send it to the users phone, the user then displays the QR code to the intercom camera and it will allow the user instant access to the building within the chosen time period.
Available now from ciegroup.com, the Akuvox R29C and R29CB IP Intercoms provide theideal solution for office door phones with on-site or hosted IP-PBX, remote site entry over Internet, apartment / flat intercom with door access control and business information or a welcome experience for guests.
