OR642 / OR642W Outdoor Remote Stations

OR642 (Woodgrain) Outdoor
Remote Station

The OR642 and OR642W Outdoor Remote Stations provide for call capability and two-way, hands free communication to inside master stations for the Alpha Communications® / TekTone SM400 series intercom system only.

Used typically as an outside door station, the OR642/OR642W are rugged, dependable units designed to provide natural, clear voice communication, simple push button operation, and hands free reply. The stations are ideal for outdoor use, in office, home, plant, warehouse, retail business, and similar applications. The OR642/OR642W are an ideal choice for low ambient light locations where the lighted call switch provides an increased visibility. On the SM400 series system, you can only have one (1) of the OR642 illuminated call button stations per system. The balance of the outdoor remotes cannot be the illuminated button type!

Operation of the stations is simple and efficient. The caller, by pressing the call button, causes an audible signal at the master stations location. The identity of the caller may then be determined and entry to the home or building permitted, if so desired, and if system in use permits.
