2N UPGRADES ANSWERING UNIT INTO A
SURVEILLANCE DEVICE AND HOME AUTOMATION
2N, the global market leader in internet-enabled intercoms and access control
systems, has updated the firmware of the 2N® Indoor View, the company’s
answering unit for high-end residential projects, to turn it both into a surveillance
device and a control panel for complex home automation systems. The upgrade
is designed to meet the changing requirements of people living in luxury
properties all over the world.
2N’s new firmware is a response to that demand, enhancing the 2N® Indoor
View in three ways:
1. Up to four IP cameras can now be connected to the answering unit: These IP
cameras do not even need to be connected to the intercom – they only need to
be in the same local network as the answering unit.
2. Photos are taken from each intercom
call – including missed calls. The 2N®
Indoor View now automatically captures
snapshots from each call and adds them to
the call log. The unit takes more than one
picture in case the person at the door has
turned sideways or had their hand in front
of the camera at the key moment.
3. The unit can act as the home automation control panel: HTTP commands
can now be sent from the 2N® Indoor View, meaning that it is possible to control
home automation functions – such as turning on the lights, opening the blinds
and calling the li .
EYE-CATCHING ECOARC RECYCLING STATION
Leafield Environmental, the UK’s
award-winning designer and
manufacturer of litter and recycling
bins have launched a new external
recycling bin, the ‘EcoArc’ o ering
an eye-catching and compact unit to
encourage people to recycle ‘on-thego’.
The EcoArc was initially designed
for a retail forecourt environment, but
is also suitable for shopping centres,
leisure centres, high-streets, parks,
beaches and schools.
The EcoArc recycling bin can be used
in groups as part of a recycling station,
side by side or back-to-back. The
slimline curved design has a dimpled
hood surface for anti-fly poster and rainwater drainage. The unit features space
for two optional A2 poster frames on each side and an optional A4 signage kit to
promote key messages.
The standard black base is made from 100% recycled material (subject to
availability) and can feature optional traditional banding. The unit can hold up
to 80-litres of waste with an optional steel or plastic liner.
The double-sided oval aperture can accommodate a 4-litre washer bottle.
The moulded double skin pull-out door has been designed for added strength
and durability and has an integral moulded handle for ease of opening on one
side. The door has a smooth surface allowing an optional recycling label to be
applied to identify the type of waste collected. The standard pull-out door and
recycling label will be in WRAP compliant colours.
