frequently asked questions
Can existing buildings be retrofitted ?

Yes, this is possible. When connecting via wireless LAN, only two wires are required for the power supply at the installation site, which can be reused from your old system. If the connection is not to be made via wifi but via cable, an additional Cat5e cable is required at the installation site. It is also possible to connect the network and the power supply via only two wires of an existing line using a 2Wire add-on device.

Can Esenta produce a clear recording at night?

Yes, Esenta is equipped with a ring of infrared LEDs that illuminate the camera's field of view when the unit detects low light conditions.

Do I need a wifi connection to operate or set up Esenta?

No, a purely wired network is also suitable for use.

Is it possible to use ESENTA SIAS without accessing a cloud?

The cloud function can be completely deactivated, but then the use of our Android and iOS app is no longer possible. SIP telephones (Fritzfones, SIP Softfones etc) can still be used without the cloud function.

Yes, fingerprint and code, code NFC card and fingerprint and NFC card can be combined.

Can the relays be switched via an API?

Yes, all relays can be switched via API.

What do I need the ESENTA Hub for?

The HUB fulfils several functions:

Safety function:

As soon as the front-door station detects physical movement (manipulation), the HUB disconnects the network connection to the front-door station.

Relais function:

The door openers for the front door, side entrance door and garage door, for example, can be connected to the three relays integrated in the HUB. Since the HUB is placed in the utility room, these relays are protected against manipulation.

The garden door or the entrance gate, for example, can be connected to the three relays integrated in the front-door station.

Is it possible to connect the outdoor unit to my network (e.g. with Fritzbox) without a hub?

Yes, this is also possible. You can also connect the outdoor unit directly to the network and control the door opener via the three relays of the outdoor unit.
