Hi all,

We're currently investigating moving from an on-premise Panasonic NS700-based system to RC. I currently see the biggest change would be to our existing door trigger. We have a Panasonic DPH2 door card, door trigger and Panasonic intercom which is working perfectly already.

What is required to use the existing trigger and door station or setup a similar setup in RC?

I've read quite a few posts on here about the setup of a door buzzer/trigger and said I could use an ATA? Is that in conjunction with both existing trigger and intercom? Or do I need a new intercom and the ATA is just for the trigger?

Hello Greg, 

So the ATA-122, which is the specific model we sell, is not recommended for use with door strikes or triggers since the unit is not able to push a high enough voltage for any electric strike like functions. If the system you are using is triggered by the call or DTMF and not the change in voltage caused by said "call" then an ATA should be fine for this use. We do support a few other ATAs for assisted provisioning but they are also not going to have the capacitance necessary for most door triggers/strikes. 

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns!
