I plan to install a doorbell outside my apartment front door and connect it to a ISY-99I. I also plan to place a network camera right above the door. My plan is that when someone presses the doorbell it will send me a text message so that I can see the camera on my iPhone. Due to my disability I will also have a I/O Linc connected to a Sky Link Swing Door Opener with Electric Strike. If I am not home I will have the ability to use this to open the door for the person that I see in the camera. I am looking for something to place either right outside the door or in my apartment that I can use to tell the person to come in. It doesn't have to be two way, but it would be nice. Some sort of intercom or PA system. Any ideas?
I use a DoorBell Fon. It's a doorbell button/intercom that interfaces with the telephone line so we can communicate using any phone in the house. An electric strike and an outbound relay (DP-28NBF) allow us to buzz someone in by pressing the * on the phone.
A security camera is connected to a car backup monitor. An advantage of this type of monitor is that applying power turns the video on. No need to push a button or use a remote.
An inbound relay (DP-28CI) for the DoorBell Fon triggers an I/O Linc which provides a signal for an ApplianceLinc. The ApplianceLinc powers a 12v DC supply for the car backup monitor.
