    Default GSM Intercom

    Hi guys

    I'm just after some feedback regarding GSM intercoms. I have a client who requires one, due to the location of his house to his perimeter.

    Basically he wants the gate station to ring his, and his partners, mobile phone. He then wants the ability to open his front gate from his mobile phone. I know there are many models out there. Is there a model that people have been happy with?

    Cheers

    I've done this a few times


    Use an IP intercom system with a wireless IP link from gate to house, all they require is internet at the house and power at the gate, the ubitquiti links work a great distance and are a point to point access point, the contacts to open the gate are in the intercom door station and wire direct to the motor itself.

    i recommend Dahua as the brand as they can link into the same app as cctv if they wish to get that installed at later date.

    Thanks, but its a Dahua Ip intercom that I'll be ripping out as the client isnt happy with it. It's the app that the client was really interested in and there is too much lag time between the person pressing the intercom button and the push notification appearing on their phone.

    Tech help have tried to tell me its their internet, which is their default answer. This particular client has Fibre to the house, which he paid for as they dont have fibre in the street at present. He then has fibre from the house to the front garden, where i have a switch powering IP cameras and the intercom. He has a super fast local network and internet speed is commercial grade. I imagine the lag is from Dahua's DNNS servers

    Cheers

    Get a static IP address and port forward the NVR - should work a lot faster when it doesn't have to route via China

    Yes they work well, made in UK and premium units so not cheap like the chinese stuff. Have to say the Hik stuff seems to work well too via IP
