[From Centurion Systems - 4 March 2019]
In the 1980s, following the invention of transistors and the development of digital communication technology, intercoms started to see widespread use in homes as a means of controlling visitor access. However, because these systems are hard-wired, its efficacy relies on the resident actually being home. A visitor arrives, buzzes the intercom and, taking the lack of response to mean that the homeowner is not in residence, breaks in and steals the homeowner’s collection of records.
Welcome to 2019 - A new era in access control.
Homeowners all over the world are enjoying the incredible security and convenience that comes with being able to answer their intercoms from anywhere, thanks to CENTURION’s G-SPEAK ULTRA GSM-based intercom system.
The G-SPEAK ULTRA is a product that customers love every bit as much as we do.
Here is why it is awesome:
It lets you answer your intercom from anywhere in the world
G-SPEAK ULTRA uses your mobile phone as the intercom handset so, whether you are at home, at the office or chilling on a beach in the Bahamas, you are able to answer callers at your gate and in so doing create the impression that you are always home. This is a great security feature and helps to deter would-be burglars. Your records are safe!
It transforms your phone into a long distance remote control
With G-SPEAK ULTRA, you are able to open your entrance gate (or arm an alarm, switch on a pool pump, geyser, lights, etc.) from anywhere with a 2G network via a missed call, SMS or using the intuitive G-REMOTE mobile app.
It will let you know when trouble’s afoot
Nothing spoils a holiday like constant worry. What if the alarm is triggered and the neighbours aren’t there to hear it? What if power is lost to the electric fence? What if aliens invade? With CENTURION's G-SPEAK ULTRA, you can remotely monitor up to four different electrical devices, and will be notified via a push notification of input events.
It won’t ruin your property (and your wallet) with wires!
So this is more something that it won’t do, but it’s still pretty awesome! As mentioned above, with G-SPEAK ULTRA your mobile phone effectively becomes the intercom handset, which means no more lengthy, expensive cable runs back to the house. It is wireless communication with endless possibilities!
