Aiphone introduced an updated JO Series video intercom which enables homeowners and small businesses to control front-door access onsite or from virtually anywhere using a cloud-based mobile app. The new entry-level unit also has built-in options for recording visitors. The updated JO Series provides door access using the best of both worlds – a hard-wired, in-home master station with 7-inch screen for instant contact with visitors or wireless control inside or outside a home or business via the mobile app. The Aiphone monitor acts like a video answering machine with built-in memory to store up to 10 audio and video recordings. If more memory is needed, there is space to add up to a 32GB Micro SD card. The only added cost is that of the SD card; there are no other storage or access fees. Up to eight smart devices can be connected to a single JO Series system. The app gives active, on-the-go users the ability to see and talk with visitors and unlock their door from both Apple or Android devices. The app also features a smart new way to unlock doors — a sliding button. This requires a purposeful motion intended to prevent users from accidentally unlocking their door.
