Aiphone introduces a touchless sensor for gesture-activated calling


This sensor connects to any compatible IX Series door station for touch-free calling

Redmond, Wash. – May 5, 2021 – Aiphone, the leading international manufacturer of intercom and security communication products, is announcing a touchless sensor that allows a way for visitors, vendors, and employees to initiate a contactless call with a simple gesture.

Compatible with the IX Series door stations for easy installation, the sensor encourages users to “Wave Hello” to activate a call, reducing exposure to germs and the spread of bacteria in high-touch areas.

This touchless solution can be easily included anywhere an IX Series door station is installed, offering a reliable method to call inside the facility to the master station without contacting the exterior intercom.

This solution is valuable in high-volume environments:

•   Educational facilities and day care centers

•   Condos, and other multi-tenant residential facilities

•   Office buildings and high-rises

•   Clinics, hospitals, and pharmacies

•   Parking lots and garages

Where security communication is required—and lowering the spread of bacteria is critical— visitors or staff can request access by calling with a simple wave of the hand. From here, calls can be screened with crisp audio and clear video. This solution can also be used to greet employees who’ve lost their access control card, or to facilitate contactless deliveries.

Additionally, the sensor’s detection zone helps avoid unwanted activations from external sources, such as wind or outdoor debris. Its low-profile design and aesthetic look can complement any building exterior.
