Protege Vandal Resistant Touchscreen Intercom Entry Station (Flush Mount)


Located at the main entrance, the 17” touchscreen entry station is likely to be the first thing people notice as they approach the building. Designed to operate as a standalone unit, or as part of a complete integrated Protege solution, the Entry Station provides an intuitive interface for visitors to communicate with tenants, building management, a concierge, or even to off-site locations, such as directly linking guests with corporate housing owners. VoIP and video capability, enables you to view live video from multiple sources and utilize two-way voice communication to SIP compliant phones and intercoms.

  • Vandal resistant IP65 rated enclosure
  • Built in high resolution camera with wide viewing angle
  • Customizable home page for the display of floor plans or company specific branding


A vandal resistant body and stainless steel front plate protects against malicious damage. The enclosed design accommodates both surface and flush mounting into a wall and mounting onto a kiosk stand.

The web interface enables you to configure and manage users displayed in the directory and adjust the entry station's settings. The web interface also allows you to program offline lock operation.

User integration allows you to manage entry station tenancy directory listings within Protege WX or Protege GX, avoiding the need for double-entry of user details.

Directory listings automatically synchronize and display on the entry station. Visitors can then use the directory to call tenants, who are able to unlock a door using valid credentials to conveniently grant access for their guests.

The entry station can communicate with any Protege WX or Protege GX controller to control connected physical devices and monitor the status of the entry station. When integrated with Protege GX or Protege WX, you can program functions that enable you to use the Entry Station to unlock the doors leading to each apartment, trigger lighting along the way, and call the appropriate elevator. Integration is achieved by adding the Entry Station into Protege as a keypad.

The VoIP entry station can run as a standalone point-to-point device, or register as a phone on any VoIP capable PBX to allow normal call operation. 

Using a VoIP capable PBX server enables you to use phone numbers to call devices and configure complex call routing. This enables communication to multiple stations simultaneously, routing calls to alternative stations after a defined period of time, and diverting calls to different units based on a set schedule. If the server allows, you can also dial numbers on the public telephone network using a configured extension to dial out.

Point-to-point connections involve IP to IP calling between the entry station and VoIP devices. This enables you to make calls with the entry station without using a VoIP SIP server (only supports calls to other VoIP devices).

The entry station provides a live video feed that is viewable from a remote monitoring station, a web browser, a Grandstream IP phone or from within Protege WX/Protege GX.

From the web interface, you can create a unique user experience with high quality graphics for display on the entry station's home page. This enables you to tailor the entry station to fit with your company's branding.

The entry station supports the display of advertisements on the home page.

Power is provided via a suitable 12VDC supply. Ethernet connection allows for installations that use either a dedicated Protege network or that simply connect the entry station and Protege System Controller to the building's existing network.

PoE simplifies installation and reduces costs. Because PoE runs data and power together over the same cable, it eliminates the time and overhead associated with AC outlet installations, while providing flexibility of the install location.

The entry station needs to be positioned so that it is not exposed to direct sunlight, to prevent the display from overheating. If this is not possible, a sun cover is required

Configure any Android or iOS device to operate as an entry station client, enabling tenants to interact with visitors using the entry station. The client provides full VoIP functionality, live video streaming, and Protege GX / Protege WX controller integration.

Use any Protege or third party reader module to read the Wiegand output data sent from the entry station.

Connect an RS-485 capable card reader to the entry station to grant tenants access to the building.

The entry station comes equipped with one programmable open collector output suitable for local door operation.

  • When operating standalone, you can use DTMF codes to toggle the onboard output, enabling you to unlock/lock a door with a phone call
  • When operating in online mode, use DTMF codes to unlock a door controlled in Protege GX / Protege WX
  • When the entry station is online with Protege GX or Protege WX, tap the screen to navigate to the directory and unlock a specific door

Complexes or buildings with mailboxes on the secure side of the installation can add the Postal Lock mechanism to allow for door release by postal service providers.
