What are electrical outputs good for?

Electrical outputs are connectors on electronics of 2N® IP Intercoms where you can connect door lock, alarm system, home automation system, signalling light etc. Basically anything that can be controlled by electrical signal.

What electrical outputs are available?

Generally there are two types:

What are the switches in the configuration of 2N® IP Intercom?

In terminology of the 2N® IP Intercoms, we use Switch as a subject in settings which representents a set of parameters. Switch says what is the PIN code, time profile, which electrical output and some other parameters. You always have four switches, no matter how many actual electrical outputs are on that particular intercom. This makes possible to have multiple switches linked to one electrical outputs. You can thus set two different sets of settings for our output.

Examples on using two switches with one electrical output, for example intercom with keypad controlling shop front door:

What if I need more settings? For more complicated scenarios, control of more outputs etc, we recommend using the Automation scripts.
