Pre-Assembled Outdoor Station for ABB Door Entry Systems

The ABB Mini Outdoor Station with ID Card is a pre-assembled, one-piece outdoor station for the ABB Door Entry System, facilitating quicker installation for common applications. The all-in-one station combines a camera, audio module, and pushbutton with a built-in proximity card reader into a single component. This configuration allows a visitor to initiate a call with an indoor station/residence by pressing the pushbutton, to talk with the resident, and to unlock a connected door lock with a proximity card/tag, while the resident can view visitors through the camera from a video indoor station. Communication can be established either by the resident at an indoor station, or by the visitor at the outdoor station.

  • Provides two-way communication with indoor stations
  • Built-in speaker, microphone, and two door lock terminals
  • Activated by indoor station or built-in pushbutton module
  • Built-in ID card reader unlocks connected door lock
  • Live video feed viewable on video indoor station(s)
  • Installs into an ABB Flush Mounted Box

Two different models are available with either a 1-button or 2-button pushbutton module. If the 2-button model is chosen, the second pushbutton may optionally be programmed to trigger an output, such as a switched light, or a second indoor station/residence.

At the side of the pushbutton(s) is a backlit nameplate, giving you the option of labeling the button(s). The backlight allows easy use at night. High-quality nameplate printing is accomplished with free downloadable supporting software.

Finally, the station supports connection of up to two electric door locks for remote door strike release, either through an indoor station or the built-in ID reader. When a visitor or resident waves an authorized proximity card/tag (sold separately) in front of the pushbutton module, the lock release is activated. The reader is compatible with any third-party ID cards and tags, not included.

Installation Details

The ABB Mini Outdoor Station connects to the System Controller (sold separately) using two wires, and installs into the included Flush Mounted Box . After the module is wired into the Door Entry System, it simply snaps into the box. The box can be flush- or surface-mounted with accessories.

NOTE: Requires 2-wire connection to a System Controller, sold separately. Also requires use with a video indoor station, sold separately. Installation hardware, ID proximity cards/tags, and printing on nameplate not included. Modules are not individualized or removable, as they are in custom outdoor stations. This station is one complete piece with all modules permanently connected to one another.

How to Build Your System

Every ABB Door Entry System needs at least two components: a System Controller (either standard or mini) and an Audio Module (any variation). With these two foundational components, the system can be expanded and customized as needed. Additional system components may include:

  • Custom Modular Outdoor Stations
    • Audio Module (speaker/mic, with or without pushbuttons)
    • Pushbutton Module (with or without built-in card reader)
    • Keypad Module (with or without built-in card reader)
    • Display Module with Built-In Card Reader
    • Camera Module
    • Nameplate Module
  • Pre-Assembled Outdoor Stations
  • Hands-Free Indoor Stations (with or without video screen and/or induction loop)
  • Handset Indoor Stations (with or without video screen and/or induction loop)
  • Guard Unit (specialized station for security monitoring)
  • Mobile Devices (requires Telephone Gateway and/or IP Gateway)
  • Telephone Gateway (for integrating mobile or landline phones)
  • IP Gateway (for enabling remote Internet access)
  • Switch Actuator (for relay control)
  • Camera Interface (for connecting third-party analog cameras)
  • Elevator Lift Control Relay Module (for elevator/floor access control)

Other accessories are also available for installation and connection. Most notably, in order to build a custom modular outdoor station, you will need to select the modules you wish to include in the station, and then match the number of modules to the appropriate size Flush-Mounted Box and Faceplate. (Flush-mounted boxes support optional surface-mounting in addition to flush-mounting. When surface-mounting, a Rain Hood is also required; only optional when surface-mounting.) The screwless, snap-on design of both outdoor and indoor stations makes installation a breeze.
