Transcribed of the video below
Hi guys, my name is Darrel. I'm head of the tech team here at
locksonline.co.uk. Today we're going to have a look at Daitem, a new range
of wireless door intercom systems. To be honest with you, I'm proud to say
that we are now an approved ecommerce supplier for their products. We're
good thumbs up for that.
I've got some of their kit here to the side of me. I want to explain to you
the benefits of going with Daitem if you're looking for a door intercom
system. And what they have as features and projects on their individual
items to give you a better understanding as to why you may be wanting to
consider Diatem as a solution for your wireless door intercom systems. I've
got a few bits and pieces here. I'm going to take one of them at a time and
explain to you what they are and how they work.
First of all, this is the standard door panel intercom system that you
would fit either by the front door of your house or down by a gate. It's
entirely up to you where you fit them. You might think to yourself, hang on
a minute, this is wireless and here's a cable hanging out of the end of it.
Well, I'll explain to you now. What we have is a controller that gives you
these options. That there is what you would screw to the wall.
That's actually your call station here. If you zoom in a little bit on that
firstly you can see you've got the two press buttons here which means the
system has the ability of having two individual call stations back to the
house or back to flat one and flat two perhaps. This particular display
here has only the one, but you can buy it with the two. There's a two way
version as well as a one way version. This little unit here you get the
speech coming back out at you from the person who's speaking. This is with
a microphone here.
One of the advantages with the Daitem equipment is the cover here. If you
look at that, I don't know if you can zoom in on the back of that a little
bit better for me, but look at the solid construction that we have here.
All of this is solid metal. It's really, really built to last. It's good
What we've got here is a little indicator where you can put your name, like
Mr. and Mrs. Jones or flat 23 or whatever you want on that. It's good solid
steel construction there. These are spaces that sit at the top here that
hide all of the fixings and so forth when it's actually screwed to the
wall. That, then, in effect would sit on that device like that. That's what
you would then see at the front door or at the gate.
The cable that you see coming off that, if I put that to one side now, will
go into one of these control panels that I've got here now at this moment
in time. It's this control panel that will wirelessly talk to a handset
that you would have in your house So, inside here what you would need to do
is put this inside,or behind the wall, or behind the gate. If it's in the
house you drill a hole through the wall and you terminate this then into
that row there.
This particular version that you're seeing here is the powered version and
will require a remote 12 volt supply that goes into here. In the back of
this particular model which is the powered version... But, they also do a
battery version. I'll get it out while I'm here. If I take the cover off
this one and have a look at it, two secs, there you go. Put that to one
side. Stick that to one side. Move that to one side as well.
Here you have the battery version of it. You can put in your own batteries
in here. It doesn't come with batteries. You would need to supply your own
batteries, and probably go for a good quality Duracell battery at that. One
of the advantages with this particular type of one is that you won't
require power at the door at all or at the gate because it uses batteries.
What's unique with Daitem, and I've got to take my hat off to the guys, is
that the battery configuration will also allow you to operate your strike
release from this controller. So, if you've got a gate 50 yards down the
road from your house and you want to have an intercom with that you can
actually put an electric strike on that gate and have it powered by these
batteries in here. The manufacturer Daitem says that it's good for roughly
five operations a days. And, these batteries should give you roughly around
five years of use. That's absolutely stunning, brilliant. Just be mindful
of that. These systems will power a strike release for you. That's really
One of the advantages as well that I wanted to show you inside here, I
don't know if you can zoom in, can you zoom in on that please, but it
actually shows you how the wiring goes. You've got the wire that comes from
the intercom on the front door with wire into there. Then, you've got a row
of wiring here for a gate and a row of wiring here for a door depending on
whether or not you're operating a gate or a door.
You can also put a push to release button here at the gate on the inside if
you wanted to to get out depending on what type of lock solution you have.
You could just put a push button on the inside to get out.
Also, you've got some sort of sensor here. You've got an indicator here
that will tell you on the handset whether or not your door or your gate is
actually open. It'll show you by little symbols to know whether or not the
door is open. It sends that signal through to your handset. Again, thumbs
up for that.
One of the advantages with these as well you can tell by the robust quality
of these is they've got a foam seal built all the way around the outside
here all designed to be part of an environment that can be hostile. You've
got this protection here to stop the weather from getting in. You've also
got these little devices here which all are a little bit of a plug, and
they will actually sit in there then. Then, you would cut off the ones that
you want, for example, to bring in this cable out or to bring this cable
out to the strike release. The whole box in all is very well weatherproof.
What I would recommend if you're thinking of fitting one of these,
especially the battery ones, if you're in the northern climes of this
country it may be well worth you sitting this actually inside another box
perhaps, purely and simply because the cold can affect batteries. That's a
little top tip there. You maybe want to be conscious of that.
They do a different call station. There's this particular call station
which we've already looked at. They also do a different call station as
well. This one here is the call station if you could zoom in on that.
Again, it's a single one, but, again, it can be two. It's entirely up to
It also has a keypad on here. If you want to, if you use this particular
type, you can say to your friends, your colleagues, the postman, or
whoever's visiting that if you type in 1234, or whatever number you decide
you want to use, you'll be able to operate that strike release via these
digits here. You can program up to 16 numbers into this system. It's
absolutely brilliant. Again, it's all controlled by a battery controlled
operator and programmer.
One of the piece de resistance of this particular type of system as well is
it can actually work on a proximity fob. These are the proximity fobs that
are supplied by Daitem. If you were to come up to the gate or to the door,
or if this was on a post as you come up, by presenting this to the actual
front of this panel or to this panel here depending on which one you decide
you want to use then this again will remotely release that strike release
to allow the gate to open or an automatic gate system. It will all
automatically open then by you presenting that to one of these controllers.
It's fantastic diversity.
I've cut the cable off this one just to give you some sort of idea as to
how long it is. You've got at least I would say maybe four meters of cable
there should you need to put this somewhere remote from the actual front
Those are the benefits of that system. I'm going to put this all to one
I'm going to have a look in a little bit more detail at the actual phone
itself here. Here's the phone. Look at the quality of that. It's absolutely
brilliant. They've really thought about this. They've thought about the
engineering behind it. It hasn't been powered on. It's come as a kit to us.
If this was powered up now you would have a lovely display there of all the
permutations telling you whether or not your door's, who's calling you, et
You have the ability as well, one of the advantages of Daitem, is you can
have multiples of these. You can have up to four of these. What you can do
is talk between phones. You don't necessarily have to talk to the front
door. You can actually talk in between different phones. If the children
are upstairs and you're downstairs and you want to say tea's ready, instead
of shouting up the stairs as we all used to do you can just call them and
say the tea's ready. Or, you might use it if you've got a granny flat or
something like that. Again, you've got more diversity and more choice with
this type of intercom system.
Again, on the back here you've got this mounting that allows it to sit on a
table or something similar like that which is nice. But, you can also take
this off and have it as a wall mounted unit as well.
This particular model here they do a battery operated version as well so
you don't even need power to control this. This particular one comes with
its own power supply. This you would plug into a normal socket into the
house. This would then be fed in underneath and power the unit there no
problem at all.
There are batteries in here. You can then pop this with you and walk around
no problem at all. In here as well we've got indicators where you can
switch lights on. One of the controllers that I'm not showing here today,
but you can have a remote controller that can switch on security lights or
passage lights or anything. You can be able to do this by pressing that
What can I say? Absolutely fantastic. It's an awesome line here. I'm really
proud to be associated with Daitem, and we're now an approved ecommerce
supplier of their product.
If you've got any questions by all means pop us an email. You can pop me a
personal email. It's email@example.com. I'd be more than willing to
help you out.
Just to give you a few quick tips now. The range on these systems, you
should be okay for around about 150 meters, shouldn't be a problem. Maybe
you could push it 200 meters, but it's all about free open space. What
you've got to bear in mind is that if you've got big thick walls the rule
of thumb from my 25 years in the industry is for every wall that you have
to go through take off 10 to 12 meters of the distance. That gives you a
rough idea then as to how far your gate or your door can be from your
There you go, Daitem products. They're now available at Locks Online. Thank
you very much, and thanks for listening. Cheers. Bye bye now.
