The home station’s basic functions can be controlled simply by lightly touching the icon buttons: you can accept door calls, switch on the outside light by the door or the staircase lighting (in conjunction with a switching actuator), and open the door. The door bell can also be muted, if desired. The pressing of a button is confirmed by an acknowledgement tone, which can be deactivated. Confirmation by tactile feedback (vibration) is also an option. The type of button tone (tone, click, multi-frequency tone) and its volume can also be set. Multi-frequency tones and button vibration are particularly practical options for people with hearing impairments.
