  • Do not disassemble or modify the station.
    This may result in fire or electrical shock.
  • Do not, under any circumstances, open the station.
    Voltage within some internal components may cause electrical shock.
  • The device is not designed to explosion-proof specifications. Do not install or use in an oxygen room or other such locations filled with volatile gases.
    This may result in fire or explosion.
  • Do not install or connect the device with the power on. May cause electrical shock or malfunction.
  • Make sure the wiring is correct and there are no wiring shorts before switching on the station. This may result in fire or electrical shock.
  • Do not put your ear close to the speaker when using the station. May cause harm to the ear if a sudden loud noise is emitted.

General Precautions

  • When installing or using the station, give consideration to the privacy rights of subjects, as it is the responsibility of the system owner to post signs or warnings in accordance with local ordinances.
  • If warm air from inside the room enters the unit, the internal and external temperature difference may cause condensation on the camera. Plugging of cable holes and other gaps where warm air might enter is recommended for preventing condensation.
  • If the station is used in areas where there are business-use wireless devices such as a transceiver or mobile phones, it may cause malfunction.
  • If the device is installed close to a light dimmer, an inverter electrical appliance or the remote control unit of a hot-water system or floor-heating system, it may create interference and cause a malfunction.
  • If the device is installed in an area with an extremely strong electrical field, such as in the vicinity of a broadcasting station, it may create interference and cause a malfunction.
  • Environmental conditions such as the accumulation of rainwater, frost, snow, or dust on the unit may prevent calls from being made or place accidental calls.

Precautions for mounting

  • Installing the station in the following locations as is may affect the clarity of the image:
    • Where lights will shine directly into the camera at night time
    • Where the sky fills much of the background
    • Where the background of the subject is white
    • Where direct sunlight is present
  • Installing the device in the following locations could cause malfunction:
    • Locations near heating equipment
    • Locations subject to liquid, iron filings, dust, oil, or chemicals
    • Locations subject to moisture and humidity extremes
    • Locations where the temperature is quite low
    • Locations subject to steam or oil smoke
    • Sulphurous environments
    • Locations close to the sea or directly exposed to sea breeze
  • In 50Hz regions, if a strong fluorescent light shines directly into the camera, it may cause the image to flicker. Either shield the camera from the light or use an inverter fluorescent light.
  • If existing wiring is used, the device may not operate properly. In that case, it will be necessary to replace the wiring.
  • Do not use and impact driver to fasten screws. Doing so may cause damage to the device.
  • Avoid installing the door station in concave space of a wall to prevent disconnection of communication.

How to Install

Installation of Video Door Station

  • There is no space behind the device to store wires. Please create an opening for the wires.
  • The installation height of the unit should not exceed more than 2m (Upper Edge) from the ground level.

How to Connect

Cat-5e/6 cable

  • For connection between devices, use a straight-through cable.
  • If necessary, when bending the cable, please observe the manufacturer’s recommendations. Failure to do so could cause a communication failure.
  • Do not strip away the cable insulation any more than is necessary.
  • Perform termination in accordance with TIA/EIA-568A or 568B.
  • Before connecting the cable, be sure to verify conduction using a LAN checker or similar tool.
  • A RJ45 covered connector cannot be connected to the
  • LAN ports of the master stations or the door stations.AIPHONE IX-DVM Video Door Station fig9
  • Use cables without covers on the connectors.
  • Be careful not to pull on the cable or subject it to excessive stress.

Precautions regarding low-voltage line

  • Use PE (polyethylene)-insulated PVC jacketed cable. Parallel or jacketed conductors, mid-capacitance, non-shielded cable is recommended.
  • Never use twisted-pair cable or coaxial cable.
  • 2Pr quad V twisted pair cables cannot be used. Parallel cable Coaxial cableAIPHONE IX-DVM Video Door Station fig10

Connection of low-voltage lines

When connecting low-voltage lines, perform the connection using either the crimp sleeve method or soldering, then insulate the connection with electrical tape.

Crimp sleeve method

  1. Line up the solid wire and stranded wire and crimp them together.
  2. Overlap the tape by at least a half width and wrap the connection at least twice.AIPHONE IX-DVM Video Door Station fig11

Soldering method

  1. Twist the stranded wire around the solid wire at least 3 times.
  2. After bending down the point, perform soldering, with care that no wires protrude from the soldering.
  3. Overlap the tape by at least a half width and wrap the connection at least twice.AIPHONE IX-DVM Video Door Station fig12
  • If the connector-attached lead wire is too short, extend the lead with an intermediate connection.
  • As the connector has polarity, perform the connection correctly. If the polarity is incorrect, the device will not operate.
  • When using the crimp sleeve method, if the end of the connector-attached lead wire has been soldered,
  • first cut off the soldered part and then perform crimp.
  • After completing connection of wires, check that there are no breaks or inadequate connections.
  • When connecting low-voltage lines in particular, perform the connection using either soldering or the crimp sleeve method and then insulate the connection with electrical tape. For optimal performance, keep the number of wiring connections to a minimum.
    Simply twisting low-voltage lines together will create poor contact or will lead to oxidization of the surface of the low-voltage lines over long-term use, causing poor contact and resulting in the device malfunctioning or failure.AIPHONE IX-DVM Video Door Station fig13
