We use the Cyberdata outdoor intercom with our RC install.  Voice only.  Press the button, rings whoever you program and vis versa.  No video.

ours isn't setup that way, but there are other cyberdata devices that could integrate I'm sure.  Depend on the door system.  If your door system has the capability, you will most likely need to hook up that, convert it to digital, assign it and then you can execute push button entry.  Theoretically.  Haven't done it on my sites.

Cyberdata is a good choice and their support is good and knows how to work with RingCentral.  Any traditional analog door entry system should work fine too with an ATA.  The lock release part usually requires a locksmith to install unless you are pretty handy.  Getting those things installed properly inside heavy commercial doors and the wires run properly is a skill.  Inthe past I have reused analog door entry systems with ATA rather than pulling new data cable.

I use CyberData intercoms and integrated it into our DSX door system.  I had to set the intercoms up as users due to our type of call handling.  Then had our door company run a 18/2 wire from each intercom to the door controller and installed the wire into the request to exit module on the controller.  On the intercom you can set what key(s) need to be pressed on the phone and that sends the signal to the REX and unlocks the strike for a set period of time. Let me know if you have more questions.

If they already have a working analog door entry system you could try just using an ATA.  Then figure out how to program the door box to dial an extension or call group.  Some door systems require an extra DTMF module to do this and some will have it built in.

If you want to change to IP you need to get a data drop into the door frame or wall where the existing box is and Cyberdata is a good choice as they are known to work with RingCentral and their support is helpful and understands how to make it work with RingCentral.  You would not necessarily need to replace to the existing strike and relay depending on how they want to use it.

yeah theres a data drop there and i tried to use a viking door box on vonage (provider) and it wasnt compatible. i wanted to make sure when selling ringcentral that i know what equipment to sell if someone switched to RC and needed a doorbox.
