Panel

In the tab, you configure settings for apartment, device, calls, and SIP calls.

Apartment Settings 


For correct panel functioning, you must enter information about its logical address:

  • panel operation mode;

Info about operation modes

There are 2 modes available, which are intended for certain working conditions:

Wall mode is used when the panel is installed on the perimeter of the object. If this variant is chosen, on a panel you must enter Building No., Unit No., Floor No., and Apartment No. to call the necessary monitor. 

Also in this mode, No unit option is available. So, to call the monitor, you must enter Building No., Floor No., and Apartment No. For this option correct work, all monitors in the Apartment Settings must have to 0 value for the Unit number.

Unit mode is required if the panel is installed near the unit entrance. When using this mode, it is enough to enter Floor No. and Apartment No. to call the necessary monitor.

  • building number (parameter is for Unit mode only); 
  • unit number (parameter is for Unit mode only); 
  • device number

Info

If you have more than 1 entrance panel with the same logical address, you need to specify their device numbers, starting from 1 for the main device, and from 2 to 9 for others.

Note:

To make a call between the panel and the indoor monitor visitors must enter required information that depends on the chosen operation mode.

For correct functioning, the panel and the monitor must have the same building and unit number in apartment settings. Also for monitors, you must indicate corresponding information about the floor, apartment, and device number.

If there are no such settings, you must make forwarding queues for apartments with IP addresses or SIP numbers of monitors.

Using Unit mode (according to the panel settings from the photo above), to call apartment No 1, located on the 1st floor of the 1st unit, visitors must enter 1. So, monitor with logical address (number) 0001-01-00-01 will be called. In this logical address, 0001 is Building No., 01 stands for Unit No., 00 is Floor No., and 01 is a number of apartment. Thus, the same logical address must be set in the monitor settings: building - 1, unit - 1, floor - 0, apartment - 1.

If Wall mode is set, to call apartment No 1, located on the 1st floor of the 1st unit, visitors must enter 1-1-1. With the No Unit option, 1-1 is enough to enter. 

 So, monitor with logical address (number) 0001-01-00-01 will be called. In this logical address, 0001 is Building No., 01 stands for Unit No., 00 is Floor No., and 01 is a number of apartment. Thus, the same logical address must be set in the monitor settings: building - 1, unit - 1, floor - 0, apartment - 1.

SIP settings


These settings are required for the correct work of calls via SIP protocol. Step-by-step guide how to get SIP nubmers and configure a panel for SIP calls if you use BAS-IP SIP server you can find here.

To configure SIP calls for the panel, you must enable device SIP registration and enter the following parameters: 

  • SIP server proxy that can be represented by both an IP address and a domain name;

Data format:

Before the proxy address, you must enter "sip:", e.g. sip:us.sip.bas-ip.com. A full list of BAS-IP servers for each country is available here

If you use a third-party SIP server, you can also indicate a non-standard port in the format: 

sip:us.sip.bas-ip.com:1506 where us.sip.bas-ip.com is a SIP server proxy, 1506 is a non-standard port.

  • SIP server address that can be represented by both an IP address and a domain name;

Data format:

If you use a third-party SIP server, you can also indicate a non-standard port in the format: 

us.sip.bas-ip.com:1506 where us.sip.bas-ip.com is a SIP server proxy, 1506 is a non-standard port.

  • port of the STUN server;

Note:

19302 port is used for the Google STUN server.

  • user SIP number (up to 20 characters); 
  • password for SIP number (up to 20 characters);
  • transport type: UDP/TCP/TLS. 

Note:

UDP is good for speed and efficiency.

TCP is great for reliable IP-packet delivery. 

TLS is best for encryption, authentication, data integrity, and secure SIP trunking. 

You can enable the auto re-registration to renew the lost connection with the SIP server and enter the re-registration interval (from 5-600 seconds). The feature is recommended to use in networks with an unstable Internet connection. If necessary, you can re-register the device manually by clicking the appropriate button.

Call settings 


At this part you can:

  • enable/disable a call to the specified number when pressing the connected to the door sensor input button (Call button mode must be set);
  • sndicate the direction (number) to which the call will be made when pressing the connected call button; 
  • enable/disable autoanswer of all incoming calls;
  • enable/disable automatic ending of call after opening a lock;
  • configure call max time in sec (up to 2 h period after which the panel automatically ends an outgoing call if there is no answer);
  • configure talk max time in sec (up to 24 h period after which the panel automatically ends the outgoing conversation).

Device settings


In this section you can: 

  • select preferred video quality (resolution) (320x240/640х480/1280х720);
  • select preferred RTP data profile;
  • adjusts a volume level of a panel speaker;
  • enter RTSP username (login to get access to a panel RTSP stream);
  • enter RTSP password (password to get access to a panel RTSP stream).

Relay settings 


Here you can select the initial state of the panel relay when the device is turned on. If you select Switch when the device is turned on, so the relay will switch the position to the opposite. The relay will return to its original position after turning off the panel. The relay will not switch the position when the device is turned on and off if the corresponding mode is selected.  

These settings will help the locks work correctly and for a long time, especially mechanical as it might break if the voltage is applied to it for too long.

Camera mode 


Panel camera can work in 2 modes: QR reader (QR codes can be used as identifiers) and RTSP server (additional surveillance camera). Stream from the RTSP service can be recorded on NVR. In this section, you can select mode and set the following backlight options:

  • the illumination level at which the camera switches to the black and white mode and the backlight turns on; 
  • backlight duration from 0 to 600 sec;
  • a number of frames during which the illumination level is measured to switch the mode.
