How to Choose a Perfect Intercom Kit for Your Villa Project?

How to Choose a Perfect Intercom Kit for Your Villa Project?

Many users in Europe and America live in the villa. And with the improvement of the living standard, they are no longer satisfied with the home intercom device that only has the ordinary function of talking and opening doors.

According to authoritative research, what they need more are: 1. Excellent audio and video quality and high security to meet basic requirements.  2. Support for using mobile phones to operate ensure convenience.
However, as a distributor, you should attach more importance to higher-level demands besides above basic requirements.
For example 1. There is no need to spend too much time teaching your installers how to deploy for saving labor costs. 2. Stable device for reducing maintenance work after sailing.

Now many brands have published Intercom Kit in order to meet these needs. Let's have a look at how Intercom Kit helps you build a perfect villa intercom project.

Low cost for product selection and deployment
Flexible product selection and matching
Because of the price acceptability and deployment environment, the selection of kit devices must be flexible. We found that most of the users' requirements for indoor monitors are stable, while the need for a door phone is changing due to the security and installation environment limitation. So you need to consider the possibility of device combination, the flexibility of installation, and high-level security for Intercom Kit solutions.
The device combination choice for Akuvox Kit: C313N/S/W + any Akuvox door phone(Not 2-wire devices).
The device combination choice for Hik*** Kit:
DS-KIS603-P(B)
DS-KIS604
DS-KIS604-P
DS-KIS604-S
DS-KIS604-S(B)
DS-KIS605-P
Conclusion: With the same class of indoor monitors, Akuvox offers more choices of door phones.

Easy deployment and configuration methods
Kit must be designed to save installation time and simplify the commissioning process, due to the high cost of labor learning, construction, and accessories buying.

Reliable and stable function
Audio and video quality
Generally, kit users do not need to customize many functions. However, the basic requirements, such as audio and video intercom and access control, must be stable and excellent to meet basic requirements for residential. So as intercom products, they must meet these requirements at least.  And the stable and high quality can reduce unnecessary technical support.
Actual test results of Akuvox indoor monitor and Hik*** indoor monitor are as follows:

2.C313's Mic pickup range is farther than Hik***'s, Hik***'s pickup distance is 10 cm shorter than C313.
3.C313's full-duplex audio is better than Hik***'s. In the process of testing, the Hik*** device's Mic has an abnormality, the sound callee heard is a total distortion.
4.C313's noise floor is lower than Hik***'s.
5.Hik***'s calling volume is unstable.

Security
People's demand for housing is not only for living, but also for safety due to the external turbulent environment and the bad economic situation.
Akuvox solution supports standard ONVIF/RTSP. Akuvox has already been compatible with third-party surveillance systems, such as Milesight, Genetec, Milestone and so on. You can refer to https://www.akuvox.com/PartnersTechnology.aspx?page=1&ptype=15
SmartPlus APP supports remote surveillance. Door phones support motion detection.

Convenience
Diversity of access control methods also is an important standard, since now people use access control in many different scenarios. For example, the elderly and children are not convenient to use mobile phone and often forget PIN codes, so the face key is very friendly to them. And using Bluetooth and NFC to open doors are more suitable for the youth. You can also create temporary QR codes and send them to visitors on the APP.

Compatibility of solution
With the rapid development of people's lives, the requirements of the intercom also change. Then you may constantly change the intercom system for special requirements, which would cost a lot of labor and material resources. A system with high compatibility can help you avoid these troubles. So Kit solution with flexible compatibility also prepares for the system to expand in the future.

Convenient maintenance
Stable solution
We all hope to minimize the failure rate of devices, which can save labor and material cost. Device stability determines how long the device can be used subsequently, and how much manpower needs to be invested in maintenance costs and brand image.
After a nearly month-long pressure test, Hik***'s door phone can not call and indoor monitor appear to be stuck seriously, while Akuvox's device can work normally.

Remote upgrade and maintenance
Once the device has some problems in the process of use, we can fix the problem in the office. So remote maintenance is essential for perfect kit solution.
Akuvox solution supports remote upgrade, configuration sending, PCAP, and troubleshooting on the cloud.

Superb support team
Akuvox technical team is divided by district, and there are two engineers to help clients in every district at least.  We can support you in 7*24 hours, so don't worry that can not find someone to solve your problems.

    You mention under the paragraph "convenienve",
    That akuvox supports facial and qr codes. Is this referring to e12 or akuvox capabilities in general  in the product line with other models?
    Abraham 2022-08-07 20:51:30
    C313s can be mounted surface mount without digging in wall if you use a U.S surface mount double gang electrical box. They have them in plastic as well as metal.
