Gira DCS-TC gateway

Door communication by phone

The Gira DCS TC gateway integrates the door communication system into the existing telephone system. This enables calls to be accepted and the door opener to be controlled via a landline or mobile telephone.

The corresponding telephone numbers are programmed in advance in the DCS-TC gateway, then the phone rings – simultaneously in the garden, holiday home or at work, for example – and the visitor at the front door can be spoken to.

Functions, features

Up to 2 x 50 phone numbers can be programmed into the DCS-TC gateway, and call forwarding and day/night switching can also be activated. The gateway sends a different signal than a normal phone call. This can be indicated with differing ringtones from a local landline telephone. The gateway also supports the call waiting function if the phone is currently in use.

Installation, set-up

The DCS-TC gateway can be configured via the telephone's DTMF tones or via PC-supported programming software. An interface enables software updates for the gateway. Connection is directly via the exchange so that no TC system is required for analogue operation. If there is an existing TC system, communication can be directly via the a/b connection. It is also possible to operate several DCS-TC gateways on the Gira door communication bus.

Installation in the sub-distribution (six modular widths). If this is not possible, a common surface-mounted distributor is used.
