Easy installation and start-up

Explanation of systems

The Gira door communication system makes dealing with technology simple. Installation without wasting time and effort on cabling during renovation projects and configuration of the system without the need for all of the occupants to be present – this is made possible by the 2-wire bus technology and one-man start-up concept. With the Gira door communication system, video functionality is also possible in properties with up to 28 residential units. Gira has integrated door communication into the design lines for this purpose. Gira home stations are available in a variety of designs and different colours can be combined with a wide range of frame options.


Product range

The Gira door communication system provides solutions for all indoor and outdoor requirements: Single homes to multi-family buildings, flush-mounted or surface-mounted installation, audio and video functions, use via the Gira G1, smartphones and PC, integration into own systems and systems from other manufacturers, integration of external cameras, keyless access with Gira Keyless In and vandalism-resistant door stations.


Installation

Gira makes technology simple. Installation without wasting time and effort on cabling and configuration without the need for all of the occupants to be present – made possible by the 2-wire bus technology and one-man start-up concept.


2-wire bus

In technological terms, the Gira door communication system is based on the 2-wire bus, whereby only two wires are needed to supply the components with power and to transmit all the audio and video signals. This means that an existing doorbell system can be easily replaced by the Gira door communication system, for example. Rather than routing new cables, the existing cables are used. Also, in new installations, the 2-wire bus technology reduces the otherwise normal cabling effort for a door intercom and enables rapid, reverse-polarity protected installation.


One-man start-up thanks to ease of programming

The Gira door communication system can be programmed by just one installation engineer, which not only saves you money, it is also helpful when it comes to subsequent maintenance work. Start-up of the system is easy: first, the call buttons on the door station are pressed for three seconds each in the order that the home stations are to be subsequently assigned in. Then, the home stations are processed one after the other by pressing the “Light” button each time. Alternatively, the stations can be processed by pressing the floor-call button. The advantage of this is that the occupants do not need to be present in order to set up the system.


Door communication planning tool

Electrical specialists obtain further information about the Gira door communication system in the “Planning tool”. It contains basic knowledge relating to sample plans and connections, cable routing, project planning and more besides. Order No. 1736 10


Online course

Master electricians can find study courses covering Gira systems at www.akademie.gira.de. A training course on the subject of the Gira door communication system can also be found there. The advantage of online learning is that the user can decide for themselves when, how and where to study. If the user runs out of time, the course can be paused and resumed at a later date. The multimedia-based approach and the diverse content makes it more fun and further links offer valuable additional information. Those wishing to learn simply need to sign up on the page and can start with the tutorials straight away.


Extended number of devices

The Gira door communication system with video functionality can be installed in buildings with up to 28 home stations. When planning the system, the number of home stations that will be installed per residential unit has often already been determined. It was previously assumed that up to three home stations could be called at the same time by each call button. That limited the maximum number of devices to 18. In larger properties, however, often only one home station is used for each residential unit. The Gira door communication system now takes this into account. it is possible to design the system so that a call button is connected to just one home station. It is possible to install different equipment in the residential units if the number of devices is reduced accordingly. This can be read from a gradation overview during system planning. It specifies the maximum number of devices to be used for the relevant set-up. If one home station is connected per residential unit, video functionality can be provided in up to 28 residential units using the Gira door communication system. Twelve residential units can be equipped if there are two home stations per residential unit. If three home stations are installed per residential unit, a maximum of six residential units can be equipped with video functionality. An overview of the equipment possibilities:

1 home station per unit:
- 28 residential units
- 28 home stations

2 home stations per unit:
- 12 residential units
- 24 home stations

3 home stations per unit:
- 6 residential units
- 18 home stations
