'537' Series 2+2 Wire Video-Intercom Kits

The Alpha Communications® / Elvox™ '537' series video-intercom kits are low cost residential/commercial video entry security systems. The wiring from the inside monitor to the door camera remote station is only 2 wires plus a coax (2+2), and each kit comes with 100 of this combination cable. A low voltage transformer connects to the inside monitor station and also comes included in each kit. No additional transformer is needed if a 16VAC electric door opener is used. Simply run a 2-conductor cable from the 16VAC door opener to the door remote station!

There are three (3) types of door stations available and a surface backbox (model 320P) is available to surface mount the vandalresistant door station, if needed. Each kit can have an additional video-intercom monitor station (model 537M) added at a later date or an extension inside handset (model 537C).

The optional PK407A door opener relay allows connection to other voltages and types of door openers.
