Security, Communication, Entertainment - One Compact Unit

The Drop-down system features a seven-inch monitor and supports two recessed (VSUC4RK) or surface-mount (VSUC4SK) cameras for monitoring both the front and back doors.

Hartford, Wis., August 19, 2005 - The new NuTone® Video Door Answering Systems conveniently offer security, communication and entertainment in one compact unit, according to Christian Reick -Mitrisin, marketing manager.


"Now more than ever, security is a top concern for homeowners. That's why we developed two new Video Door Answering Systems that make it possible to see and communicate with visitors before opening the door," says Reick -Mitrisin.

The Drop -down system features a seven -inch monitor and supports two recessed (VSUC4RK) or surface -mount (VSUC4SK) cameras for monitoring both the front and back doors. The Built -in system features a four -inch color monitor for hands -free door communication with one recessed (VSM4RK) or surface -mount (VSM4SK) cameras for monitoring one door. The Built -in system may be coupled with one optional remote wall -mount handset (VSA4S) to allow communication between the monitor, handset and one exterior camera.

"Our new systems make communicating with visitors and your family easier than every before," adds Reick -Mitrisin. Both systems feature a three -note chime and allow homeowners to speak with visitors before opening the door. In addition, the Drop -down system allows users to answer and make telephone calls from its hands -free speakerphone. This system also features a digital, local voice message recorder that allows homeowners to leave messages for other family members.

The convenience of entertainment is also integrated into the benefits of the Drop -down system. Fitting neatly under kitchen cabinets, the system accommodates Cable TV access, plays music and offers an AM/FM radio. Additional features of this system include an infrared remote control, a digital clock with alarm and connection from camera to monitor using a category five (cat 5) cable, adds Reick -Mitrisin.

The exterior surface -mount camera does not require rough -in housing; it only needs to be attached to the wall adjacent to the door frame, which makes it ideal for existing homes where a recessed camera may not be practical. The exterior recessed camera features a sleek, nearly flush -mount design in a rich, brushed -metal finish.

"Both of these products fit in the tightest of spaces and produce a quality image and sound," says Reick -Mitrisin. "In keeping with NuTone's easy -to -use philosophy, the interface is simple enough so that any member of the household can feel comfortable operating the systems."
