Smartphone calling gives residents the ability to receive, and answer a call from an Urmet Door Entry Panel, directly on their smartphone.
All the resident needs is an active internet connection, and the Urmet CallMe App on their smartphone and they’ll be able to answer a call from anywhere in the world.
Smartphone calling doesn’t require any additional licenses, and is completely free for residents, so there’s no ongoing costs.

How does it work for the resident?
With Urmet Smartphone Calling, the resident is always home.
Say that the resident is on holiday abroad, and a friend visits their apartment to feed the cat, and water their plants, and needs access to the building whilst the resident is away.
The friend will call the residents’ apartment from the front entrance Door Entry panel, and the monitor in the residents’ apartment will ring.
At this point, the call will also be automatically forwarded to the residents smartphone, and as long as the resident has an active internet connection, their phone will ring.
When looking at their phone, the resident will see the across…
The resident can choose to answer, or decline the call, as well view the Entry Panel camera feed before answering, so they can see who is calling, just like across…
If the resident decides to decline the call, then the call is terminated for both the resident, and the visitor. However, if they decide to answer, then they’ll be able to engage in a 2-way video & audio conversation with their fiend (the visitor) at the Entry Panel.
When the resident is in conversation with the visitor, they can choose to do any one of the following, directly from the CallMe App…
Grant the visitor access to the building
End the call without granting access
Mute Themselves for some extra privacy
Take snapshots of the Entry Panel Camera Feed
How is it managed?
Smartphone Calling is centrally & remotely managed by the building manager, using the CallMe Manager Software.
This software allows the building manager to have complete control over the Smartphone Calling system (a Secured by Design guideline).
CallMe Manager has been described as similar to an Access Control system, as it gives the building manager the ability to remotely add users (up to 4 per apartment), as well as edit their details, and delete them entirely.
For example, say that a resident has moved out. The building manager can quickly revoke the old residents’ CallMe App access, and then provide the new resident with their new CallMe App credentials.
This helps to keep the building secure, as resident access permissions are continually updated by the building manager, from one central, remote location.
