Please tell, is it possible to install a network reader with an embedded controller CR-01 outside?

Reader with an embedded controller CR-01 has a wide operating temperature range from -40 up to +65 C and dust and moisture proof degree IP65, so it can be installed outside.

Please tell if video intercoms BAS-IP AQ-10v3, BAS-IP AG-04 and outdoor panel BAS-IP AV-01T v3 work within the local network and also we’d like to take incoming calls from outdoor panel to portable devices through the Internet anywhere in the world, what’s required? Should we need any extra equipment?

In this configuration, incoming calls are possible to portable devices – communicators and smartphones which have BAS-IP software and VoIP-client with support H.264 codec. Then SIP ATS is required for communication protocol SIP (possibility of taking calls is deleted). It can be, for instance, BAS-IP SIP-PBX-16 or any other SIP ATS with H.264 or G.711 codec support.

Can I record video from outdoor panels to my video recorder NVR?

Yes, you can. Your NVR should be able to enter RTSP command line in manual mode and has H.264 codec.

In technical documentation indicated that internal monitor first connected to protocol converter SH-61, and after that to automation modules through RS-485. Why is special converter required?
