Located at the main entrance, the 17” touchscreen entry station is likely to be the first thing people notice as they approach the building. Designed to operate as a standalone unit, or as part of a complete integrated Protege solution, the Entry Station provides an intuitive interface for visitors to communicate with tenants, building management, a concierge, or even to off-site locations, such as directly linking guests with corporate housing owners. VoIP and video capability, enables you to view live video from multiple sources and utilize two-way voice communication to SIP compliant phones and intercoms.
ProtegeGX/ProtegeWX User Integration
User integration enables the management of tenancy directory listings within Protege WX or Protege GX. Directory listings automatically synchronize and display on the Entry Station. You can use the directory to call tenants and unlock a specific door using valid credentials.
Integration allows communication with any Protege WX or Protege GX controller to control any connected physical devices and monitor the status of the Entry Station.
When integrated with Protege GX or Protege WX, you can program certain functions that enable you to use the entry station to unlock the doors leading to your apartment, trigger lighting along the way and call the appropriate elevator. Integration is achieved by adding the entry station into Protege as a keypad.

Complexes or buildings with mailboxes on the secure side of the installation can add the Postal Lock mechanism to allow for door release by postal service providers.
The VoIP Entry Station can run as a standalone point-to-point device, or register as a phone on any VoIP capable PBX to allow normal call operation. Using a VoIP capable PBX server enables you to use phone numbers to call devices and configure complex call routing. This enables communication to multiple stations simultaneously, calls to route to alternative stations after a defined period of time, and calls to divert to different units based on a set schedule. If the server allows, you can also dial numbers on the public telephone network using a configured extension to dial out. Point-to-point connections involve IP to IP calling between the entry station and VoIP devices. This enables you to make calls with the entry without using a VoIp SIP server, however, this method only allows you to call other VoIP devices.

The Entry Station provides a live video feed that is viewable from a remote monitoring station, a web browser, a Grandstream IP phone or from within Protege WX/Protege GX.
Configure any Android or iOS device to operate as an Entry Station client, enabling tenants to interact with visitors using the Entry Station. The client provides full VoIP functionality, live video streaming and Protege GX/Protege WX controller integration.
