Door Entry Direct Offers Home Security Style With Comelit’s Visto

Door Entry Direct now offers Comelit’s distinctive video doorbell, Visto, for installers to present homeowners with smart capability and total peace of mind on a 24 / 7 basis, without compromising home aesthetics.

Comelit’s architect designed Visto doorbell connects via a home WiFi network to allow homeowners to see, hear and speak with visitors at any time or from any location via a smart phone or tablet.

Featuring a high definition camera and superior quality speakers and microphone; full two-way audio and video communication is available with Visto. Additional quality IR LED for night vision, ensures homes are protected day and night.

With two core product options in Visto’s range, installers can select from Visto WiFi which draws power from two wires that would ordinarily be used for a standard doorbell.  Visto 2 presents a hard-wired solution for homeowners where WiFi strength is an issue.

Says Steve Stuart, Managing Director Door Entry Direct: “With Police now encouraging homeowners to install a smart doorbell with camera capability that ‘offers potential to see, hear, record and speak to anyone at a front door, via a smartphone’*, Visto is a welcome addition to our home security portfolio.

“Coming with two options allows the perfect installation using existing home wiring, which, together with its aesthetic appeal, is what really extends its appeal.”

Visto default is presented in Dark Graphite but also available with optional covers in Silver Mist and Cloud White. Offered with a range of product options and accessories, including a specialist internal camera option, Visto has solutions for installers to accommodate homeowner’s requirements.

Says Justin Hawkesford, Comelit Operations Manager: “We have been very careful in designing Visto, right from its ease of installation and in consideration of varying WiFi strength, to ensuring as many homeowners as possible can benefit from this latest smart technology.  It’s why right from the start we have launched two options and differing colour schemes.

“We’re naturally delighted Door Entry Direct has selected the complete offering to enable their customers to present a stylish video doorbell that can fit around busy homeowner’s lives, ensuring the security of their home and their family at all times.”
