TwinBus application examples

TwinBus technology - intelligent, simple and future-proof

TwinBus is the ideal technology for meeting all your intelligent building communications requirements. It boasts intelligent technical features, is simple to set up and install and is future-proof for virtually all application areas - from new building constructions to renovations, from compact intercoms for smaller accommodation units to sophisticated applications in larger properties.

Private homes

The situation

A large single-family house with 3 floors, a basement and enough space for one family.

But every time the door bell rings, one of the occupants needs to rush to the front door to see whether the visitor is welcome or not.

 

The Merten solution

To enable occupants to see who is at the door simply and conveniently, a Ritto door intercom (1) combined with a flush-mounted video intercom (2) in the basement, ground floor and first floor corridors is the ideal solution.

A further practical benefit is that the flush-mounted TwinBus video intercom has an internal call function, which enables communication between floors.

Doctor's surgery

The situation

Security is a key factor in every doctor's surgery.

For reception staff, it is important they can be on their guard at all times and know who is entering the practice. This is particularly important if it is a multiple-practice building with lots of persons entering and leaving on a regular basis.

 

The Merten solution

If the push-button bell of the Ritto door unit is activated (1), the staff member on reception can see (2) whether it is a patient at the entrance door and tell their identity on the flush-mounted video intercom display. To open the door, a mere push-button action is required.

Beside the entrance door of the practice, a staircase flush-mounted door unit (3) is also fitted. This ensures that only people who have pressed the push-button bell on the staircase intercom enter the building and arrive at reception. To distinguish between the ring tones of the intercom in front of the building and the one on the staircase, the video intercom offers 8 different ring tones including a 3-chime gong.

Office complex

The situation

Office complex containing lots of small businesses represent a particular challenge.

The building communications solution needs to be sufficiently upgradable to respond flexibly to new requirements – plus it needs to have a uniform design.

 

The Merten solution

The benefits of TwinBus are particularly apparent in large commercial properties. Due to the future-proof technology, door intercoms (1), video intercoms (2) and staircase intercoms (3) can all be installed using three bus lines for a total of 90 participants. When further system components such as the TwinBus repeater are added, the number of participants can be increased further. An optional feature which enables activation of scenes via a KNX gateway using a special function key on the video intercom is another benefit of this Merten solution.

Another convenient TwinBus feature is the automatic door opener, which has proven particularly valuable with large office complexes. If a visitor activates the push-button bell on a door intercom, the entrance door to the building will open automatically. The automatic door opening mechanism can be activated or deactivated as required of course.
