2N LTE Verso Brings Intercoms Into Cellular Realm

The 2N LTE Verso cellular intercom debuts at CEDIA Expo with modular frame allowing for customizable configuration.

The intercom has reached the cellular age. 2N debuted at CEDIA Expo the LTE Verso, the world’s first cellular intercom, according to the company.

The 2N LTE Verso is the first door communicator using LTE technology. It provides a complete set of functions familiar from IP intercoms, with minimal installation costs. The LTE technology used fully replaces both data and analog cables and can even handle video calls in HD quality. Using the 2N Mobile Video application, users can receive calls on a mobile phone or tablet.

The intercom is based on the layout of the 2N IP Verso model, including its modularity. It features an HD camera with night vision, a single button for calling and a slot for a SIM card. The basic unit is always supplied with an internal antenna that takes the slot of one module.

The installation requires a frame with at least two slots. An external antenna can be connected to the intercom to improve signal quality or in case the slot is needed for an addition of one of the 14 optional modules, such as an RFID card, fingerprint reader, touch screen or mechanical keypad.

Another very practical addition is a Bluetooth module that enables opening the door with only a mobile phone using the 2N Mobile Key application – a modern, fully secured and very user-friendly method of access control.

Because of the intercom’s modularity, its individual components may be combined to create a custom access system. The intercom is available in two colors (black and silver).

The Verso LTE intercom can be configured remotely via the Internet. Integrators only need to insert a SIM card to connect to the LTE network and then set it up from your browser, using the My2N.com with the 2N Remote Configuration service. Adding the intercom to the service, as well as its subsequent configuration, is free of charge. As soon as the intercom is successfully configured, all its functions are ready to use.

The LTE Verso communicator can also provide e-mail photos of the visitor captured by the integrated HD camera, both at the time of the call or at night when the intercom detects motion near the door.

Among its basic functions are calling the appropriate unit, mobile phone or tablets using mobile data. The 2N Mobile Video service is designed to receive calls as a mobile application. Therefore, the visitor doesn’t know whether the homeowner is communicating with them from home or from thousands of miles away.  

“All you need is [a] 12-volt power supply and you are good to go,” says Craig Szmania, regional BD head, 2N North America. “It will communicate through the cellular network back to the home network.”
