What do the specifications included in the door phone mean?

Color display

The small color screen allows images, videos, menus, and instructions to be displayed like a smartphone.

Card reader

The card reader will allow a user to unlock the door or gate by using a keyfob or access control card using NFC, 13.56 Khz, or 125 Mhz. The maximum reading distance is about 15 cm / 6 inches.

SIP Protocol

The SIP protocol is a well-known protocol to transport audio and video streams over a network or Internet between different devices or applications.

Video door phone

The video door phone is a device to identify somebody willing to enter a property, like an apartment building.

Power over Ethernet / PoE

Some routers, switches, or stand-alone devices can deliver electricity over the network cable. That avoids the necessity to run electrical wiring and brings money and time savings.


If you enable your smartphone Bluetooth, that intercom will be able to recognize it. The average distance to be detected is 10 meters / 30 feet. As the card reader, that will send the signal to the strike and open the door automatically.

Biometric access

As a new standard, facial recognition is revolutionizing access control systems. It gives more precision in the identification and more autonomy in the automation.

Body temperature detection

As an answer to COVID-19, most of the access control systems integrated some body temperature detection to point out some potential holders of sanitary threats.


To facilitate installations, and give a communication backup, some smart door phones include LTE wireless communication. It connects them to the national mobile network.

How can you live without a smart SIP video door phone?

How do you secure your apartment building?

You aren’t always available. You could be working, doing groceries, sleeping, having fun, relaxing, or anything else. You would need a concierge to identify and evaluate every single person willing to enter your building. That could prevent burglars, muggers, door-to-door salesmen, or any other unsolicited person.

How do you get to know who is really in front of the door?

Sometimes you just don’t want to wake up, get out of your place, or just meet anyone. But how do you avoid unsolicited persons if you don’t go and see them by yourself?
How to answer someone ringing at your door if you are out for groceries or at work?
With a traditional intercom, it is difficult to know who is speaking effectively. Is he a real UPS delivery man? It would be nice to see you.

What happens when you forget your keys? Or if you invited someone but you’re not available?

You or your guests get stuck outside, waiting for somebody to open the door. You can also bother different neighbors to help you and open the door.

What happens when you forget your code and keys?

Sometimes things can get tricky. And don’t you worry about inserting your keys or typing in your code? It is without thinking about the sanitary precautions to take and avoiding touching surfaces.

What are the options for analog door phones?

Do you remember how life was before smartphones? A mix of mechanics and electrical interaction to be able to communicate with a single person on the other side. Today installed door phones are still the same technologies for decades, making them difficult or impossible to connect to smartphones, computers, or the cloud.

How do you select the options on your door phone?

Most existing intercoms offer no display or perhaps a line of characters. This limits the options you can use.

Did you know how many property crime violations occurred in Canada in 2017?

  • Breaking and entering 438.51
  • Theft of motor vehicle 231.61
  • Theft over $5,000 47.01
  • Theft under $5,000 570.17
  • Mischief 713.84
  • Total property crime violations 3244.76

Why do you need a Smart SIP video door phone R29C?

You can choose options and write on the color display

More than just validating whatever you type, you can also select your contact in a list of occupants and other features of the Akuvox R29C door phone.

A keypad is available to type your code or select the desired occupant to talk to

Even if you forgot your keys, or you invited somebody, just type a code to unlock the door. The keypad is also used to navigate in a basic menu.

The card reader will identify the user and open the door in a microsecond

With a key fob, an RFID access control card, or even a Smartphone with NFC, you can identify any registered occupant of the building. The system will then automatically unlock the strike of the door to let the user come in.

Connected to the Cloud, the R29C door phone makes it easy to manage and communicate

Thanks to the SIP protocol and the computer-style technology, this door intercom can communicate on a computer network and enjoy all the digital options. The Cloud centralizes all the different door phones and door stations in one place so the manager can monitor, set up, and operate from anywhere.

Have a video call with your guests

What seems like a standard and simple feature is still quite new to the intercom market. However, a video call is much more convenient for identifying your guests and for sharing any visual communication than a simple audio call. Depending on your station, the guests could see you too or not. And thanks to computer technology, as new individual video doorbells, you will be able to perform this live video call from anywhere, as far as you are connected on the Internet.
