The GDS3710 is a hemispheric High Definition IP Video Door System used to monitor an area from wall to wall without any blind spots and control facility access.
Grandstream's GDS3710 IP Video Door System offers an excellent facility access management system. It offers advanced features such as SIP/VoIP for 2-way audio and video streaming to both smart phones and SIP phones. It contains integrated PoE, LEDs, HD loudspeaker, RFID card reader, motion detector, lighting control switch and more.
The GDS3710 is an IP Video Door System that also serves as a 180-degree
high-definition IP surveillance camera and IP intercom to offer facility
access control and security monitoring. It comes with a built-in RFID chip
reader for secure keyless entry and includes a built-in microphone and
speaker to support intercom functionality.
Recently picked by TMC for a 2018 Internet Telephony Product of the Year Award, this facility access management system brings a robust security solution to add to one's UC umbrella. Grandstream offers GDSManager, a free management software for the GDS3710, providing RFID card management, along with basic reports for door entrance and attendance management. The combination allows buyers to integrate an access control solution at relatively low cost.
You can also control access with either of the Grandstream GXP and GXV series phones, which pair up nicely, and experience the convenience and safety of seeing who is at the door directly from your desktop. The GDS3710 incorporates a 180 degree video viewing angle for complete wall-to-wall coverage and supports alarm in and alarm out to integrate with any current security devices.
One item that buyers need to be aware of is that installation can be a little challenging for some, as no Ethernet port is incorporated into the GDS3710, rather the unit incorporates a built-in module where stripped wires are to be attached. This entails striping off the RJ-45 clip and unsheathing the individual wires for a PoE connection or any other of a number of connection possibilities. Grandstream does however offer very well documented literature to take you through the process for a number of different types of setups. (See GDS3710 Input/output Alarms Configuration Guide and GDS3710 Wiring Diagrams for more specific details.) Additionally, making the appropriate connections to other devices, like the door, etc. is not difficult, but does require a bit of general electrical familiarity.
the SIP setup requirements is clear-cut and is done from SIP Basic Settings
in menu options. The GDS3710 enables voice communication between the device and a
chosen extension. Using a Grandstream GXV3200 series video phone you can
view the live video stream, open the door, and interact with the person at
the door via the built-in intercom.
Paired with the free GDS Manager software, which is fully capable to manage the device, the result when integrated is more than just a security solution, it's a complete facility access control system. It incorporates support for RFID cards or fobs allowing employees with RFID cards to scan those cards to the GDS3710 when at work. The scan registers in GDS Manager (free widows based software from Grandstream) and records it and then logs that person in for your use on attendance management reports.
The free windows based GDS Manager software offers a real time video stream display along with RFID card management and basic reports for the facilities' door entrance. Adding the Grandstream GDS3710 RFID USB card reader allows easy integration.
Good quality and great features. Very nice device. This little contraption does a lot and works very nicely. I bought it for door security/access for a small office building...set so that it rings through to our Grandstream desktop phones and button shows up that allows us to unlock (also shows video and has audio feed so we can see who is at the door.) We have no receptionist so it saves time walking back and forth to the front door...This was super easy in that we just ran two CAT 6 cables to the door and use POE on each to power the device and strike release...Very happy with my purchase.
