Designed to enhance the flexibility and ease of use of the IX system, Aiphone’s new free mobile app, available from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, enables users to receive calls from any IX Series intercom unit,  including the IX-MV master station, and activate release contacts such as door strikes. The mobile app is equipped with four buttons for users to programme commonly used functions, whilst also included in a long list of practical features, is the ability to view any door or emergency station.

Recently shortlisted as a Finalist in the Communication Product of the Year category of the 2016 Security & Fire Excellence Awards, the IX system has been designed to  provide communication with an infinite number of doors and to interact with other IP devices and security systems. It offers video entry security, internal communication, emergency stations and multicast paging.

“All the IX system’s functions can be implemented between remote locations over large areas and distances,” said Wyatt Taylor, Sales Manager of Aiphone UK Ltd. “The introduction of our mobile app further enhances its ability to provide an ideal intercom and security solution for any type of application involving multiple locations, such as airports, education campuses, railway stations and parking facilities.
