RTI, a leading control and automation manufacturer for residential and commercial settings, announced integration with Channel Vision Technology’s Elite Series SI-8000 front door station, allowing it to be used with RTI control devices featuring intercom capabilities.

Channel Vision’s SI-8000 features a built-in IP camera that allows residents to receive video calls when visitors ring the doorbell, while an integrated strike provides the capability to unlock the door. This brings the front door station into the RTI ecosystem, allowing residents to answer and unlock the door from intercom-compatible RTI controllers. Full support for video intercom is supported on the KX10 in-wall touchpanel and CX10 countertop/under-cabinet touchpanels. In addition, RTI’s KX3 and KX7 in-wall touchpanels, CX7 countertop/under-cabinet touchpanel, and flagship T3x remote control, provide audio intercom capabilities when integrated with the SI-8000.

“We are extremely pleased to have Channel Vision as an integration partner,” said Mike Everett, vice president of global sales, RTI. “By combining Channel Vision’s popular IP front door station and the RTI control environment, our dealers can offer their clients the added convenience and security they desire.”

“This is our first partner integration, and we couldn’t be more pleased for it to be with RTI, the control platform of choice for many installers,” said Darrel Hauk, president and CEO of Channel Vision Technology. “We are especially excited for integration with the CX10 touchpanel and can’t wait to see video calls on its WXGA-resolution LCD screen.”
