The Defender GK300-7M2 Video Intercom System costs about $210 and is like something straight out of “The Jetsons.” It works with your existing doorbell wiring and door strikes and lets you identify visitors with both audio and color video before you answer the door. It also comes with night vision so you can see who’s there even if it’s dark outside.
This gadget is terrific for anyone who is cautious about opening the door to strangers (which should be everyone!). It’s convenient and compact, and much better than a peephole with its fisheye lens. Because it’s hands-free, you can see and hear who is at your door immediately. The GK-300 7M2 is a great addition to your existing security system and lets you always know what’s happening at your entrance day or night. It can also be used for other applications, such as viewing your pool area if you have a swimming pool.
The GK 300-7M2 comes with angled mounts and built-in stand, so mounting the camera and monitor are both easy tasks and only take minutes. It comes with a 50 foot cable and works with your existing doorbell wiring. Video, audio, and power run through two wires, so there is no complicated wiring involved in setup. Once it’s installed, you have the freedom of talking to the person on the other side of the door without opening it due to the audio feature. And, if you hear noises outside, you can just press the View button and see what’s happening outside.
Here’s how it works. When a visitor rings your doorbell, the indoor monitor automatically makes the chime sound and displays the visitor on the screen. At night, the night vision camera with six infrared LEDs lets you see clearly up to 8 feet away in the dark. The night vision feature activates automatically when it becomes dark and deactivates when it becomes light again.
You can get a door strike for the GK 300-7M2 that lets you lock or unlock the door from a distance. Once connected to the door strike you can press the Unlock button from the indoor monitor. A click lets your visitor know they can come in. The two 20 degree angled mounts that are included let you adjust the camera to the perfect position to give you the best view of your visitors, and the 7 inch LCD monitor can be mounted on a wall or placed on a table up to 50 feet away from the door. You can keep the monitor in a location that’s easily accessible to you. And it comes with eight different chimes so you can change your doorbell sound if you want to.
In the box you get the 7 inch LCD monitor, outdoor camera, 50 foot cable, mounting bracket, two angled camera mounts, two window warning stickers, and the instructions. It also comes with 24/7 customer support.
