DoorBird Integration Module Allows for Accessible Door Communication
Entrance areas in public buildings are now accessible for people with sensory impairments without the help of third parties.
SAN FRANCISCO — Bird Home Automation, maker of DoorBird IP video door stations, has released a new integration module (D2100E Accessibility) geared toward assisting people with impaired hearing or vision to enter buildings.
Accessible communication systems must simultaneously address two of the three senses — sight, hearing and touch. The so-called two-sense principle ensures that entrance areas are accessible and usable for people with sensory impairments without the help of third parties.
To meet these requirements, Bird Home Automation developed the special D2100E Accessibility intercom module. The new module is integrated into DoorBird intercom systems and is particularly used in public buildings such as educational institutions, hospitals and retirement homes.
On the Accessibility module, the current status of a DoorBird door station is visualized with three pictograms: call, talk and open door. In addition, the module has a hearing loop that can wirelessly transmit the audio signal from the intercom to the visitor’s hearing aid.
The visual display and induction loop make communication easier for people with hearing impairment and all hearing aid users. In addition, Braille can be added to the IP-based door intercoms so that the information is easy to feel. This also reduces the sensory barrier for people with visual impairments.
Existing IP video door stations of the D2 1x series can be retrofitted with the DoorBird D2100E Accessibility integration module. New door stations can be equipped with the additional module with just one click and ordered via the 3D configurator.
DoorBird is a leader in IP video door communication and the brand name of Bird Home Automation Group. With over 100,000 intercoms installed worldwide, the Berlin-based manufacturer says it combines modern design, high-quality materials and state-of-the-art IP technology. All products are made in Germany.
