Affing, July 10, 2014

In the unanimous opinion of the jury at the Plus X Awards 2014, Eycasa is the best and most innovative video intercom of the year. The Eycasa System from ABUS Security-Center combines video surveillance, intercom and door opening. In addition, up to three Eycasa outdoor cameras (available separately) and one Family Care camera can be integrated into the system. And with the Eycasa portable handset, available from August, it is possible to see who is standing at the front door from the garden within a 30 metre radius. Thanks to wireless technology, elaborate cable installation work is avoided.

“Communicate. Monitor. Open.” With this slogan the Eycasa Door & House Wireless Video System cleverly combines video surveillance, intercom and door opener. When someone rings the doorbell, they are unambiguously identified using the video door station with integrated video camera. With encrypted 2.4 GHz digital wireless technology, the video door station sends its live video images directly to the screen of the base station. Just glance at it, talk to the person through the integrated hands-free intercom, and press the button to open the door if required – that’s all it takes. The new Eycasa handset, available from August, has almost as many functions as the main unit, but stays with the user, as needed, wherever they go. Live video images of people standing at the door are transmitted to a 3.2" colour monitor, the user can also speak to the individuals and open the door if required. The range to the main unit is up to 30 metres – depending on structural conditions, this is sufficient to carry the small handset measuring only 12.8 cm x 7.4 cm with you throughout the house and garden, as with a mobile phone. Thanks to the integrated lithium-ion battery, the user also benefits from long standby times. For charging, simply place the handset in the cradle. This can either be free-standing or attached to the wall.

Complete set for more security and comfort at the door

The wireless video door intercom set includes the base station with a 7-inch touchscreen with hands-free intercom and the video door station with day/night function and an integrated intercom. The video door station has an integrated proximity reader which provides keyless access using the ABUS proximity chip.

Expandable to up to three day/night outdoor cameras and one Family Care camera

In addition, up to three Eycasa outdoor cameras (available separately) and one Family Care camera can be integrated into the system. The outdoor cameras have infrared lighting for night-time recording as well as a PIR sensor for motion detection. These make it easier to keep an eye on the kids. When your children are playing in the yard, for example, you can watch what’s happening with the live video images and intervene in time if required. The Family Care camera also provides clear images around the clock with their day/night function. This could be used for monitoring nursery's/children's rooms or family members in need of help.

Easy to install thanks to wireless data transmission

Eycasa is a system that a qualified person can install and turn over to the end user ready for operation in a short time. Elaborate cable installation for data transmission is not necessary here: All Eycasa components interchange their video, audio and switch signals wirelessly. This makes Eycasa ideal for retrofitting in existing buildings.
