We are using this for a small business and would like a intercom to work with our Kwikset Z-wave enabled deadbolt on our 2 exterior doors (so if UPS man shows up, etc.) and then we can unlock for them. I found other wireless devices by Chamberlain, but I’m purchasing the Vera 3 and would prefer a device that links in with my Z-Wave system for my business.
Also, is there any issues with this being used inside a steel building?
I’m not aware of anything (but haven’t specifically looked). Assuming you’re looking for ‘buttons to push, to lock/unlock the doors’, perhaps consider a zone/scene controller (Leviton VRCZ4-M0), or Evolve LCD-1 which is available as a table-top model.
(Compatibility with Evolve LCD-1 is still under investigation. Especially custom labels, for which there currently is no support. I know of one user here on the forum who has been playing with these.)
Yea, I looked at Chamberlain’s Wireless Intercom and seems like a good deal and will work. Just not Z-Wave compatible. But with my Z-Wave lock I can unlock the door after communicating on the Chamberlain’s Wireless Intercom system. Was just wondering if they had a Z-Wave Intercom/Doorbell but since they don’t I’ll proceed as planned.
Works perfectly well, very advanced door intercom (SIP) with LCD screen, video, etc + RFID + Fibaro Universal sensor connected to the lock manage contacts within the intercom.
Works fine, my Z-wave lock could be opened or closed by a RFID tags (each user gets his own), I could open my door from anywhere in the world and able so see photos / video of any person near from a door (silently or in intercom mode)
Integration with the Helios (as is available for Fibaro) would be so good. Although its possible to hack this by adding universal sensors to the door strike relay, Helios supports http based comms and so should be very easy to integrate via IP for simple stuff like detecting a button press.
