What is 2Voice?
2Voice is our 2 wire Door Entry system and is 1 of the 2 Door Entry systems that we offer.
2Voice combines simplicity of install with flexibility of application whilst also being packed full of the latest Door Entry features, to provide a scalable system that installers & residents love.
To install 2Voice, you only need 2 wires. All 2Voice monitors are programmed by familiar binary DIP switches, and we provide you with a site-specific connection diagram which outlines every DIP switch setting.
2Voice is ideal for both new build developments, and retrofit systems, as 2Voice works on both CAT5 cabling, but also old BT cable (CW1308), this means that when upgrading an old Door Entry system to a new 2Voice system, you can use the existing building cabling!
