Axis and 2N: Intercoms Offer Solution for Every Application
Both options combine open IP access control with video intercoms to simplify everything from installation and configuration.
When it comes to door entry solutions, it’s important to find the right solution to fit your needs. Axis Communications offers two approaches: its Axis product line and its 2N product line. Both options combine open IP access control with video intercoms to simplify everything from installation and configuration, making it easy to find what’s best for you.
The Axis Product Line — Offers IP door controllers perfect for retrofits or updating traditional setups. Axis IP intercoms can pass access control credentials over IP to the door controller. For scenarios with an existing reader, the OSDP or Wiegand reader can connect to the Axis door controller. Additionally, credential management can be done through AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry software or third-party solutions.
2N IP Intercoms — Act as both a door controller and credential management software — all at the edge. They can support a variety of credentials from RFID to Bluetooth, plus door locks and sensors can be wired directly to the intercom.
In addition to the benefits and advantages of each individual product line, both solutions can leverage the camera in the intercom to view and record video with video management software (VMS) such as AXIS Camera Station or a third-party system.
Axis and 2N intercoms also support video calls to multiple endpoints in parallel or rollover, including phone apps, answering units, SIP phones and VMS. They are also able to release doors remotely.
With more than 30 years of continued innovation and support, Axis and 2N intercoms are designed to meet your needs. Whether retrofitting, integrating or installing new, Axis Communications has the solution for you. Contact a local Axis/2N representative for a consultation or learn more about Axis and 2N door entry solutions and how they can be tailored to fit your needs. — Dom Albano, Program Manager – Intercoms, Axis Communications
