Aiphone IX-SOFT Lets You Turn Computers Into Intercoms

Aiphone has introduced the IX Series PC Master Station Software, which is said to facilitate the use of any computer for a feature-rich intercom, with an easy-to-use and intuitive interface.

The PC-based intercom solution is suited for any customer type, as it fits into everyday scenarios with ease, according to an announcement. The range of use applications spans the management of intercom solutions in small to midsized educational facilities and offices, or the more complex needs of an enterprise-level facility.

The solution can be managed remotely by facility managers or by a security operations center, according to the announcement.

“The new IX Series software offers users the ability to easily add IP-based intercom locations where they originally didn’t have space for a physical master station,” states Brad Kamcheff, marketing manager, Aiphone. “This easy, compact solution offers customers the feature-rich benefits of an intercom system, accessible from any PC, in a versatile package.”

Features of the IX Series PC Master Station Software include:

  • An interactive map that is a visually efficient way of selecting stations
  • Device check and line supervision ensure the system will operate as expected
  • Video conversations can be easily recorded
  • Computer screen offers larger viewing platform
  • Better utilization of monitoring station space

The interactive map offers a visual layout that allows operators to immediately detect where a call originated and efficiently dispatch security personnel.

For those with limited space to deploy a security master station, the solution is said to be ideal for deploying an enterprise-level system in a compact package.
