New demo panel for the Advancis showroom

Our Premium Technology Partner Commend/Schneider Intercom provided us with touch screen intercom stations of the Concerto series as well as with intercom stations for the industrial and elevator emergency call sector for our showroom. Together with our Regional Sales Manager Rainer Holsteg, Dirk Gottwald (Key Account Manager) from Schneider Intercom and Reinhard Tranninger (Segment Manager Industry) from Commend had a look at the completed demo panels in our showroom beginning of November. Here, our partners and customers can now experience live how a highly available intercom system with powerful call stations can be integrated directly into the WinGuard PSIM platform. Intelligent functions for data, video and audio are enabled via a bidirectional IP interface. We would like to thank Commend/Schneider Intercom for the joint realisation of the demo panel and look forward to our further collaboration.
