Welcome to ABB Door Entry

Published on 03 Oct 2017 explore

In the modern home, safety is paramount. In response to the increasing demand for systems that can help ensure the protection of homes, ABB have responded with their Welcome Door Entry system; an innovative approach to controlling both home security and building automation.


The Welcome’s strength lies in its customisability; it can be as simple or intricate as your home requires. An audio only system can be created at minimal cost, utilising 3 components: the door station to initiate communication, an indoor station to receive calls, control outside lights and door locking mechanisms, and a central system controller - all connected effortlessly with a 2 core cable:




The system can quickly become a video communications system with the replacement of the door and indoor stations, integrating the stylish Welcome Touch panel:




The Welcome system’s modular nature is complimented by a number of door entry accessories, including numeric keypads, transponder fobs and biometric fingerprint readers. These modules can be integrated into the initial design of the door station unit, rather than having to be installed as an independent unit:




In the effort to keep solutions powerful yet simple, the ABB Welcome system can be integrated with a KNX home automation setup, via their Smart Touch control panel.




This allows complete habitat control and security from one central point. The touch screen could be used to configure and recall scenes, adjust blinds trigger lighting and change heating set-points. The system can also be integrated at a programming level, further increasing the security of the installation. For example, automatically turning lights on when the door bell is pressed late at night. 


The Welcome system also allows for smart device integration and control utilising ABB’s own app. The app gives full control of the Welcome’s functionality both at home or when you are away from your property, allowing you to remotely veto couriers and tradesmen, and view cameras associated with the system all from the convenience of your smart phone or tablet.
