Cisco SIP Compliant Door Phones

If you have upgraded to a Cisco IP and VoIP based Telephony System, chances are you will need to upgrade your legacy Cisco Door Phones to Cisco SIP based Door Phones. Alternatively you may be a new build End User with a brand new Cisco IP Phone System. This building would need Door Entry Phones to integrate over the new IP based Telephony System. You need a product that is SIP compliant and certified by Cisco. Look no further, we have that product ! The even better news ? It’s oh so easy to install.

We have our Surveillance running over IP, our Data and Telephony, why would we then look to run analogue cables for our secure entry phones. A Cisco certified SIP Door Phone utilizes existing infrastructure. We will cover this in a little more detail below.

We stock a small compact range of Cisco SIP enabled VoIP Door Phones. Indoor and outdoors models. Each device has a further options of, with or without a Keypad.

Our technology has been certified by Cisco since 2008. We guarantee interoperability with Cisco Unified Communications Systems. The Cisco SIP Door Phone registers to Call Manager as an approved 3rd party SIP extension. Furthermore, the door phones also feature embedded Cisco features. There is a failover feature called Cisco SRST. Cisco have personally allowed this to be integrated to the device. You set up Cisco SRST through the Intercoms web-page. You can learn about SRST here, on a external page.

We are going to split this post into 2 sections. One section will be looking at the different types of Cisco VoIP Intercom Systems. The 2nd part will be looking at how SIP and VoIP based solutions make use of existing infrastructure. First of all let’s take a look at the different options

Indoor Cisco VoIP Door Phones

The Indoor Secure Entry Phones and Intercoms feature a with and without a keypad option. All devices feature 2 variations for mounting, which are flush mount and wall mount. You can see all Indoor Cisco SIP Door Phones here.

Typically the Cisco Indoor VoIP Intercom is installed in reception areas. They can also be deployed throughout internal door locations throughout the entire Enterprise. Especially rooms and areas that need PIN Coded Entry and remote access control.

Modes of Operation

Telephone Operation: The Secure Entry Phone is essentially an IP Phone on the VoIP Network. You can dial an unlimited number of Cisco SIP extension numbers within the building. There is no limit to this, if your location had 5000+ Staff, you could reach anyone. If each member of staff new the DTMF Relay code, potentially 5000 people could open the door.

Call Button Operation: Regardless of which mode operation you utilize, the Call Button will always be active. You pair this to a Cisco IP Phone and the single call can also form a hunt group. When integrated within a hunt group, you can reach multiple IP and Mobile Phones.

Speed Dial Operation: This is optional over “Telephone Operation”. You can pair each keypad button to an IP phone and or Hunt Group. In speed dial mode, the Cisco SIP Door Phone turns into 13 x Single Call Buttons.

PIN Coded Entry: Through the Intercoms Web-page, you can set multiple PIN Codes. Enter these through the Intercom and the relay will trigger. You can now use PIN Coded Entry and tick a box for “Allow Telephone Dial Out”.

Outdoor Cisco VoIP Door Phones

The Outdoor SIP enabled Entry Phones are used for external automated doors. They also make a very good Intercom for Gates and Barriers. The Outdoor SIP Intercom comes in just two options. With and without a keypad. Both options feature a back box with cable entry points. The Outdoor version can be installed on a Pedestal Mount (for gates and barriers). Conduit and Wall Mounting is also very popular.

Both the Outdoor models are made from Stainless Steel. They offer a higher than average Ingress rating of IP65. Similar to the Indoor Intercom, you can dial unlimited extension numbers with the keypad version. The Single call button SIP Intercom is the most popular we sell. This initiates a single call which can form a hunt group and reach multiple IP Phones. You can also set the hunt group to call a Mobile Phone.

Nothing More to Buy

That sounds good doesn’t it ? Its very true though. With the Cisco SIP Door Phone, your “other” system parts are already procured and installed. That has to be a massive benefit, doesn’t it ?

Let’s take a look at what else is needed and how it all goes together:

IP: The Internet, IP stands for Internet Protocol, it’s what our Voice Communications now runs on and Video Surveillance. With your new Cisco SIP Door Phone, your access control is now running over IP.

Cisco IP Phone System: If you are looking for a VoIP based Cisco Intercom, one would assume you already have your Cisco IP Phone System installed. The Door Entry phone registers to the Cisco IP PBX, this is also known as a SIP server.

Cat5e: Without any doubt your building will have data cabling. More than likely Cat5e, however we are also seeing the growth of cat6 and cat6a structured cabling systems. Whereas an analogue intercom would need to connect to a fixed endpoint. The IP based intercom can connect to any Ethernet port. This makes the installation more cost effective and flexible.

PoE: No need for a separate power supply. The VoIP Door Phone is PoE enabled. You can use one cat5e or cat6 cable for connectivity and power.

IP Phones and Mobiles: When you look at and old analogue type access control system. You need manufacturer specific handsets. These act as the called device which can trigger the door. With a VoIP based Cisco System, your IP Phones and Mobile Phones trigger the relay.

On the Intercoms PCB board is a dry relay contact. This relay is used to trigger the Automated door, gate or barrier. The relay is triggered by DTMF. Dual Tone Multi Frequency is the signals our phones send when we press a button.
