Using such outdated versions of the Android OS, a notorious playground for questionable players to begin with, these will be hacked and recruited into botnets in a very short period of time. Please don't buy these, it will destroy yet another market with the race-to-the-bottom mentality of these manufacturers and will create more garbage devices on the Internet just waiting to be manipulated. A stand has to start somewhere.
The ability and feature sets of these intercoms are more advanced and customizable then most of the other sip/ip intercoms including 2n(such as room room open communication for indoor tablets). It is not that they are bringing low price, they are bringing a more robust open source technology out. If you are concerned with there android tablets use the linux ones instead. Because there systems work on sip/ and rtsp you can have your own server (pbx) and design your communication scheme independent of them.
I will give it a go, the price is right. I would like to see how the features, configurations setup and manage. Hope that these units can be set up 100% GSM so all that is needed is power, no data cabling.
Actually going to give a few of their insides stations a try but not for purpose of intercom but to used as a touch screen to control a Sonos sound system. Plus customer will get the benefit of being able to view their ring video doorbell and Hikvision cameras. We'll see how it goes. This will be my first time using their products
IPVM I'll raise my hand and say yes I'd really like to see you test one of these units. I agree they have the potential to be disruptive. But not just in the video intercom segment, in PACS as well. As the price continues to drop on these units, and the functionality continues to expand, I can see how they will continue the trend of taking market share from high-end readers. Let's keep an eye on what kind of traction their units with embedded 125 kHz & 13.56 MHz realize. Add FR and video and you've got a biometric reader with the single most important function - manual override for those rare cases the FR needs a hand. Cameras in readers just makes sense to me, it always has. And in audio, analytics and some Android apps and we have a pretty good view towards a next generation reader.
