When we started in 1996, we had to educate the public/customers about the functionality of door phones: the visitor rings the bell, can talk and be seen by the flat owner who can decide or not to let him in by releasing automatically the door lock. This was a completely new concept as usually in India doors were open.
Over the years, we have developed customized video door phones systems for the Indian market taking into account its specific requirements like power backup, SOS function, anti-vandal metal door stations.
Based in South Gujarat, we started with Mumbai as main market. Meanwhile, we have expanded in all major metros with a vast network of dealers.
