Virtual Doorman Partners With Aiphone

NEW YORK, N.Y.—New York City-based Virtual Service, a provider of high-tech electronic doorman services, has formed a technology collaboration with Bellevue, Wash.-based Aiphone USA.

The alliance was forged in order to take advantage of each company’s expertise and develop a new, custom-manufactured hardware component: an audio /video intercommunication module that seamlessly integrates with Virtual Services’ Virtual Doorman system. The system will be integrated with Aiphone’s GH video entry systems.  

“It made both aesthetic and economic sense to develop a special product solution that combines our Virtual Doorman system with Aiphone’s intercom systems,” says Colin Foster, vice president of sales and marketing for Virtual Doorman. “This enables Virtual Service and our Authorized Dealer Networks to promote, sell and install a streamlined solution with this special custom module.”

The combined functionality means that only a single, self-contained unit needs to be installed at the exterior entryway of residential buildings since it functions independently as a video intercom entry system. It also communicates with the Virtual Doorman system when called upon, taking the place of two separate components, according to the companies. The unit can be integrated into a building’s intercom system at any time while still giving the appearance of being original to the system.

“The development of this custom module allows both of our organizations to further penetrate into this growing segment of the building market,” says John Mosebar, vice president of national accounts for Aiphone Corp.
