Aiphone, the international manufacturer of intercom and security communication products, introduces an updated JO series video intercom which enables homeowners and small businesses to control front-door access onsite or from virtually anywhere using a cloud-based mobile app. The new entry-level unit also has built-in options for recording visitors.

The updated JO Series provides door access using the best of both worlds – a hard-wired, in-home master station with 7-inch screen for instant contact with visitors or wireless control inside or outside a home or business via the mobile app.

Video answering machine

Regardless of internet availability or speed, our on-site monitor ensures calls from the door can be answered"

Regardless of internet availability or speed, our on-site monitor ensures calls from the door can be answered”, said Dana Pruiett, marketing manager, Aiphone. “Whether it’s a package delivery, a child’s play date or an unexpected visitor, users will always be able to see, talk and then decide whether or not to unlock.”

The Aiphone monitor acts like a video answering machine with built-in memory to store up to 10 audio and video recordings. If more memory is needed, there is space to add up to a 32GB Micro SD card. The only added cost is that of the SD card; there are no other storage or access fees.

Accidently unlocking

Up to eight smart devices can be connected to a single JO Series system. The app gives active, on-the-go users the ability to see and talk with visitors and unlock their door from both Apple or Android devices.

The app also features a smart new way to unlock doors – a sliding button

The app also features a smart new way to unlock doors – a sliding button. This requires a purposeful motion intended to prevent users from accidently unlocking their door. This added layer of security is perfect when opening the door for a cleaning service, dog walker or family members/employees who have forgotten their keys.

Professional quality

The JO Series system is ideal for busy families wanting to control entry into their home or for roaming business staff and guards needing to remain connected to answer visitor calls and unlock doors,” said Pruiett. “And these simple-to-use stations have the same professional quality and reliability customers expect from the Aiphone brand.”

The affordable JO Series is available at a one-time cost without long-term contracts or fees. Both the video door station and inside monitor have a clean, modern design providing an attractive solution to match home or office decor. For those needing a basic solution, Aiphone’s JO Series also offers a monitor without app connectivity.
