Welcome(TM) Door Entry System Simplifies Home and Building Security

New ABB product combines ease of use with security and flexibility

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The new Welcome™ Door Entry System from ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, is a simple, easy and flexible way to meet the home monitoring and security needs for single and multi-family homes.

The ABB Welcome™ Door Entry System features two-wire, non-polarized technology, which simplifies installation.

The outdoor stations are modular and available in either aluminum or stainless steel. Their modularity delivers an optimum door communication solution for all types of new construction and retrofit applications, and enables distributors to reduce their stock, while keeping quick-service replacements handy.

"ABB's Welcome™ offers both a beautiful modern style and an elegant look, but is more than just a robust door entry system," according to ABB Product Marketing Director Camilo A. Delgado. "ABB Welcome™ also helps you create an atmosphere of comfort, harmony and style in your home. It blends with any home style while providing a comfortable communications link between you and the outside world."

The interior station features a small 4.3-inch station or a large 7-inch color display with intuitive touch control, the ability to transfer calls between different apartment and security station units, and the ability to leave messages to family members and visitors.

Large buttons, intuitive design and indicating LEDs ensure an effortless experience, while other functions can include automatic unlock, door status check and second-door unlock. The 1.7-inch wide video headset is among the thinnest on the market.

Each ABB Welcome™ system is smartphone compatible and features easy remote access. The app enables communication with the exterior station and can open doors, switch on lights and call an elevator, among other functions. The ABB portal can send messages to a smartphone, while pictures and video memory are Internet accessible.

Finally, ABB Welcome™ offers infinite possibilities for modifications tailored to specific users. Able to respond to requirements from basic to complex, ABB’s Welcome™ Door Entry System provides a solution for all new or retrofit installations.

"ABB Welcome™ is more than just a door video system — it is the future of home monitoring and security at your fingertips," Delgado said.
