Users of the Aiphone IX IP network PoE based intercom and security system are now able to remotely utilise many of its key features via their AndroidTM and Apple(r) smartphones and tablets, thanks to the launch of a new mobile app.
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.
