Answer the Door to Incoming Visitors

 

Video doorphone with 3CX Web Client in active call

 

Visitors can simply press the speed-dial button assigned to your extension and you will receive a video call via the Web Client UI. Answer the call to welcome the visitor and use an optional remote controller to open the door. You can even forward calls to your mobile phone, giving you instant access to who’s at your doorstep even when you’re not there.

Ensure Nobody Is Left Unattended

Frequently away from your desk? Set up your Web Client’s forwarding rules with multiple extensions to handle visitor calls. The call from the door phone will be forwarded to the next available extension until it gets answered. You can also configure the door phone extension as a prioritized queue, making sure that visitor calls are always handled promptly.

Grant Access to Shared/Restricted Areas

 

Make the 3CX Web Client the ideal companion to your door phone device and use it as your trusted security guard. Co-workers in a shared area in your office or warehouse can press the speed-dial button to visually communicate with you via the Web Client. And that’s not all… You can also use this device with supported RFID smartcards and local password entry to provide unattended but controlled access to a restricted area.

Monitor the Floor Before Deciding What Comes Next

You can use the same functionality to monitor a storage warehouse, a controlled area or an elevator. The possibilities are endless.
