When the ABB Welcome Door Entry System was introduced to the United States earlier this year, Home Controls and installers-in-the-know could already feel that U.S homeowners were in for a real treat. Now that months have passed, we know this feeling wasn’t just wishful thinking. ABB Welcome has changed the U.S. market for home intercoms and security.

This revolutionary door entry system has filled a gap that desperately needed filling. Where we already had traditional whole-home intercom systems and front door answering intercom systems, missing was the easily customizable combo solution that worked for just about any application, whether you live in a single-family home or a huge apartment complex. ABB Welcome came on the scene and fixed that break in the circle of solutions.

Quick Summary of the ABB Welcome Door Entry System

The ABB Welcome system offers a single, flexible solution for any intercom and door entry security application. Essentially, it consists of indoor and outdoor intercom stations that support a huge array of features, from basic intercom communication (even through your smartphone or tablet) to advanced access controls (like determining which floors a guest can access by elevator). ABB Welcome does everything you might want an intercom or door access control system to do.


System Basics:

• Complete intercom and access control solution for any building

• One system supports up to 60 buildings and 250 stations per building

• Connections require only 2 wires for ultra-flexible installations

• Standard range up to 1,968 feet (600 m), extends with power boosters

• Free mobile apps for iOS and Android provide remote intercom access

• No fees required to enable Internet connection – ABB provides servers

Top Benefit of ABB Welcome – Customizable Design

There are plenty of great aspects to the ABB Welcome Door Entry System. Arguably the coolest feature is that the various system parts are modular, meaning different components can be mixed and matched with ease to create the exact components you need. The outdoor station that installs near your door can be made of different modules that you choose, such as an audio module for voice communication, a camera module for video chat, and a keypad module for security codes, among other modules.

Not only are the outdoor stations modular, the entire system is customizable. Do you want to install a dedicated indoor intercom station, or do you simply want to answer intercom calls using your smartphone? That’s up to you! Do you want to turn ABB Welcome into a full-blown surveillance system? Go right ahead; you can integrate analog surveillance cameras and view their feeds on your indoor stations.

And that’s just the tip of iceberg…
