Aiphone Introduces Touchless Sensor for Gesture-Activated Calling
Compatible with the IX Series door stations, the touchless sensor encourages users to wave to activate a call, reducing exposure to germs.
REDMOND, Wash. — Aiphone, a manufacturer of intercom and security communication products, is announcing a touchless sensor that allows a way for visitors, vendors and employees to initiate a contactless call with a simple gesture.
Compatible with the Aiphone IX Series door stations for easy installation, the sensor is said to encourage users to “Wave Hello” to activate a call, reducing exposure to germs and the spread of bacteria in high-touch areas.
The touchless solution can be easily included anywhere an IX Series door station is installed, offering a reliable method to call inside the facility to the master station without contacting the exterior intercom, according to the announcement.
The solution is suitable in high-volume environments, including:
- Educational facilities and day care centers
- Condos, and other multi-tenant residential facilities
- Office buildings and high-rises
- Clinics, hospitals, and pharmacies
- Parking lots and garages
Where security communication is required — and lowering the spread of bacteria is critical — visitors or staff can request access by calling with a simple wave of the hand. From here, calls can be screened with crisp audio and clear video, the announcement states.
The solution can also be used to greet employees who have lost their access control card or to facilitate contactless deliveries.
Additionally, the sensor’s detection zone helps avoid unwanted activations from external sources, such as wind or outdoor debris. Its low-profile design and aesthetic look can complement any building exterior, according to the company.
