Access control with ring and come in

What is Access control with ring and come in?

With the routine Access control with ring and come in you can link a touch button of an external video unit to a touchscreen, a mobile device, a chime or a door lock. When the button is touched, the chime will sound for a programmable period of time and the door lock will automatically be unlocked. Meanwhile, the call will be sent from the external video unit to all linked devices: touchscreens, smartphones and tablets. If desired, you can answer the call on one of those devices. You can also link another basic action or routine and decide when a call comes in whether you want to activate that basic action or routine, or not.
