I am in need of an industrial grade video doorbell or something similar.
I have an AI Phone video doorbell that sits at a truck scale for remote weigh in. The drivers call in and the staff can see the truck and communicate with the driver. This works, but the AI Phone is just not loud enough nor does it integrate with other Yealink phones on our FreePBX system.
I replaced the AI Phone with a Grandstream GDS3712 doorbell. That works great with all of our other Yealink video phones. Now anyone can pickup the call rather than just the one person with the AI Phone. The issue still is volume. The site is very industrial (mine) with lots of heavy equipment moving around. The trucks also sit on the scale with their engines running and so they can’t hear the staff over the Grandstream doorbell.
Is there an industrial manufacturer of VoIP hardware that would have something louder? Is there a video doorbell that you can incorporate an external, amplified speaker?
Not an off-the-peg solution, but I use a SNOM PA-1 hooked up to a Call button, external mic and loudspeaker to talk to drivers in our Car Park. And it can send and receive multicast messages as well.Its a PoE device, so all it needs is a suitable ethernet connection. Its reasonably loud, but has an audio output to hook up to a PA if more volume is needed. Doesn’t do video though.
