IP Intercom



The IP intercom firmware, used on Barix devices, is the ideal approach to integrate IP intercom functionality in a management system with, for example, touch screens and high level integration functionality. With a defined API and function set, all devices can be dynamically controlled and commanded to serve as full-duplex intercom devices, receive pages or play background music.

Contact closure inputs can be monitored and output controlled remotely via TCP/IP.

Working in a local network or over internet, the solution can be easily expanded to be used for surveillance systems where full remote control over audio and signal is needed.

A high level management and monitoring software is available as an add-on from Barix, allowing the formation of full-fledged standalone intercom solutions with graphical consoles.
