LYNX. THE MOST RELIABLE SYSTEM

A ROBUST, SAFE AND VERSATILE SOLUTION

Always reliable, at any scale

The LYNX system allows to introduce a video door entry system to any type of project. Regardless of its size, the complexity of its design or its security requirements, it always offers maximum reliability.

THE ADVANTAGES OF A SYSTEM COMPATIBLE WITH THIRD PARTIES

Professionals can use Fermax products or integrate third party applications such as home automation, video surveillance cameras, access control and lift control without giving up their usual suppliers.

The users perceive the different technologies integrated in the system as complementary parts of a single product, making their use user friendly.

NO LIMITS ON INSTALLATION

Allows you to manage a virtually unlimited number of monitors.

Offers unlimited distances between installation points.

Unlimited channels for conversations and data transmission.

Based on TCP / IP standards, LYNX offers the advantages of these systems: high capacity and the possibility of using shared wiring for all CCTV data installations, public address systems, perimeters, lifts, building management systems, etc.

It ensures extreme robustness, absolute versatility and encrypted communications.

For this reason, LYNX is the right IP video door entry technology for the high performance residential communication.

MESH NETWORK DISTRIBUTION. THE STRENGTH OF DESCENTRALISATION

LYNX is designed to allow all the diferent devices involved in the project to communicate with each other. This MESH NETWORK architecture in the form of distributed networks is what brings robustness to our system against all the other available systems where all the devices hung from a central point.

Centralised organisation is very fragile, because in the event of an error or an attack on the server, the system can be compromised along with all its devices. To deal with this, our system presents an architecture in which no element is central, so that if an element fails (even a panel or concierge unit), the rest of the installation will continue to function without problems.

TRIPLE SAFETY. ENCRYPTED COMMUNICATIONS

LYNX incorporates an extra security feature: 3DES and SRTP encryption when the devices communicate with each other. It ensures the privacy of conversations and complications with possible sabotage attempts. The communication of  the system with call divert si also secured with a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

EASY SET-UP AND INSTALLATION

100% IP or PLUG&PLAY

LYNX is designed to work comfortably for both digital integration professionals and traditional audio and video door entry system installers.

Data network experts can choose the IP address they wish to incorporate. On the other hand, those who work with traditional audio and video door entry system can configure the installation in “Plug&Play” mode, assigning the addresses automatically.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) simplifies the installation, as it doesn’t require power supply.

AND WITH EXCEPTIONAL AESTHETIC QUALITY

LYNX products offer a level of design that is difficult to match which have made Fermax an international reference. Its refined lines, focus on elegance and simplicity combined with a careful selection of materials and perfect finishes is what create perfect panels and terminals.

COMMUNICATION. SECURITY. COMFORT

Open to integration

With LYNX, each integrator will find that the task of making the video door entry system work with systems dedicated to safety and comfort has already been taken care of.

THE ADVATAGES OF A SYSTEM COMPATIBLE WITH THIRD PARTIES

Professionals can use Fermax products or integrate third party applications such as home automation, video surveillance cameras, access control and lift control without giving up their usual suppliers.

INTEGRATED AS STANDARD

LYNX offers integrated solutions for the needs of residential complexes. All the FERMAX product departments come together to offer a unique solution, with technologies that bring value and differentiation to the project.

INTEGRATION WITH:

  • ACCESS CONTROL
  • HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEMS
  • VIDEO SURVEILLANCE
  • LIFT CONTROL
  • CALL DIVERT TO MOBILE DEVICES

INTEGRATION WITH ACCESS CONTROL

WITH THE RELIABLE AND ROBUST FERMAX TECHNOLOGY…

Our LYNX panels can perform as an access control system.

It is a technology that combines the simplicity and robustness of an autonomous system managed centrally through the Property Management Unit. From that point on, you can control all the needed actions as user changes, records, delete, adds, etc.

AN IMPECCABLE EXTERIOR

Our outdoor panels have access control as standard, or allow its easy integration with a perfect aesthetic solution.

The access reader that is incorporated as standard in some of our panels works by numeric codes and/or proximity cards. The modular panel also allows the integration of a fingerprint reader.

… OR INTEGRATING A THIRD-PARTY SYSTEM

To control technology from other suppliers, we have created an integration window. In such cases, LYNX panels send access control events to the chosen system in charge of controlling and recording everything that happens. The communication also works in reverse so that the panel can receive information from the third-party reader and act accordingly, opening the door or denying entry. This is possible thanks to the Wiegand protocol communication built into the panels and readers.

With this integration  customer can use his or her usual system without giving up the design of the outdoor panel and without the need to add devices, while for the end user, the system is perfectly integrated.

INTEGRATION WITH HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEMS

ONE SCREEN TO CONTROL THE HOME

LYNX monitors are designed to provide an excellent user experience. Although they have external differences and their own features, they all have in common their ability to combine residential communication and to serve as ideal controllers for home automation systems.

INTEGRATION WITH HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEMS

LYNX can work with BUSing protocol to manage the whole house, including switches, environmental comfort systems and security from the monitor. It also allows the interaction through the home automation App.

For customers who prefer to continue to rely on their usual supplier, we have another integration window through KNX. Thus,  programming and use will be done from the monitor screen and without the need of new devices in the home.

    

AUTOMATION

Since not all households will choose home automation systems, LYNX has been equipped so that up to five external devices can be activated through IP relays. Depending on the project, they are usually used to open a 2nd door or connect lights, blinds, watering systems, etc.

INTEGRATION WITH CCTV AND LIFTS

CCTV: TWO-WAY INTEGRATION

VIA RTSP PROTOCOL

The first option our system offers is to send all audio and video signals that are produced on the panel to a central control area by  IP*, every time someone calls. Those signals can be archived, stored and recovered later in the central  control area.

On the other hand, our technology allows to activate a feature to view any IP camera installed in the facility from the  monitor in the home. This is a highly-demanded function allowing the view of intermediate transit areas such as gardens and, in particular, the parking areas.

*Video streaming available only in SKYLINE and MARINE panels.  

LIFTS

Integrating video door entry systems with lift control has already become a desirable formula to improve security in large residential  projects.

This essentially means combining signals from the outdoor panel or the indoor terminal with the lift. In this way, the person who enters using the access control can only go to the floor where he or she lives, or to those where the common areas are located. The same thing happens with visitors: the lift will only give access to the floor from which the door has been opened.

SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE AND SAFE

The most complete management control

Managing a project, even if it contains thousands of terminals, is a simple task thanks to the Property Management Unit, a software created for the LYNX system. A single application, intuitive and easy to use.

DIFFERENT USERS PROFILES

The Property Management Unit has been designed to manage any type of building with the minimum effort. The software offers several profiles with differing access levels and permissions: installer, administrator or concierge.

A SINGLE SAFETY DEVICE

The management module, essential to large projects, is presented as an external device, a USB key, without it, the management system does not work.

FUNCTIONS OF

PROPERTY MANAGEMENT UNIT

 

COMMUNICATION

Two-way calls with double conversations with monitors and outdoor panels with ‘retroview’ function of the visitor. The list of calls on hold.

MESSAGES

You can receive text messages from homes and send notifications to them individually, or make announcements to groups of residences.

PROTECTION

When receiving alarm notifications or panic calls, an automatic response to the transmitting residence is generated.

SURVEILLANCE

The Central Unit monitors via the CCTV cameras connected to the installation.

LINK

Text messages can be sent to residents mobile phones in predefined situations or by selecting a list of names, with numbers only visible to the administrator in order to protect privacy.

SECURITY

The concierge can control the lift to ensure that every visitor arrives at their destination.


OPERATING MODES

With totally intuitive operation, the Property Management Unit offers three modes:

Day mode: All calls from outdoor panels to homes are diverted to the assigned Property Management Unit for filtering.

Night mode: Visitors can call homes directly, or call the Property Management Unit.

Out of Service: When concierges are absent, calls can be forwarded to others on duty.

Compatible with Windows

CONTROL THE HOME FROM YOUR MOBILE PHONE

With call divert

This feature makes remote residential communication possible. Using any tablet or mobile phone, LYNX allows you to control the door of the home from anywhere in the world.

By incorporating a single LYNX router into the installation, calls received on the outdoor panel can be diverted to any mobile device, where the resident can view an image of the visitor, establish communication with that person, and if desired, open the door of the building.
