PABX Type Telephone / Intercom / Gate Release Systems, Data
Cabling & Home (LAN) Network Hub
Open House Network
PBX type telephone systems are sophisticated devices, which
we recommend in situations where automatic vehicle and pedestrian
gates are to be controlled from either standard or portable
telephones and in larger homes where intercom or internal
calls are requires.
In addition to this most handy feature, these systems can
provide user-friendly internal communications such as paging
throughout the home (with system phones only), extension to
extension, door station to handset, as well as providing standard
PBX functions including call hold, divert, non-ringing extension
pick up, and over 100 speed dial numbers.
As hybrid systems enable the integration of both digital/analogue
proprietary phones and any other telepermitted devices including
cordless phones, answering machines, facsimile machines, computer
modems, and standard touch-tone phones, we generally specify
the very user friendly Panasonic Hybrid range of PBX units.
This PBX system generates distinctive ringing tones
to differentiate between incoming calls, door/gate station
calls, internal transfers, etc.
On arrival at the premises, visitors press a button on the
front Door station to initiate a call to pre-selected or all
internal hand sets. Response may be made from the most convenient
hand set, including cordless phones.
Should access for the visitor be granted, the door can be
released from any telephone, including portable phones.
Digitally Enhanced Cordless Technology (DECT) long-range
cordless telephones such as the Audioline Doro may be integrated
into this system to give ranges of up to 50m indoors and 300m
outdoors, depending on conditions.
Traditionally, telephone cabling consists of 2 pair solid
copper core voice cable installed in series, (outlet to outlet)
and no provision for data cabling, and this makes the addition
of a PBX or any 'smart' device extremely labour intensive
and expensive at a later date. This type of cabling is now
no longer recognised as being suitable for any types of centralised
Communications or data systems, and does not allow for future
Demand for multi-room video entertainment and telecommunications
(Phone, fax, computer and data networking) are easily satisfied
with the installation of an Open House Network. The
key is to do it right first time! Put the right cables in
the right places and the rest is easy.
An important feature of the Open House is that it
utilizes industry recognised cable standards. The cable types
listed are available from a wide variety of manufacturers,
ensuring competitive prices, availability and compatibility
now and in the future. This will ensure that your home is
wired to meet the demands of today, and future innovations.
For telecommunications, data and CCTV applications, we install
Cat. 5e (350Mb) UTP cable for voice and Cat. 6 (1Gb) UTP cable
for data, as a matter of course. Something few of our competitors
do! When building a new home you will often want to provide
for a computer network (LAN) in order to protect the long
term resale value of the home. Installing and terminating
the cable is as straight forward as cabling a centralised
telephone installation. Cat 6 cable will allow for future
expansion for your data systems for many years to come.
Cat. 5e and Cat. 6 UTP is made up of four unshielded twisted
pairs (UTP). This type of cable is readily available and by
changing the termination or outlet, the wiring can be upgraded
for future applications such as video telephone. This also
allows for future connection of any data driven or interactive
devices which may (and very likely will) become available
in the near future.
