Connecting GDS37xx with GRP26xx

  • Updated on February 7, 2024

OVERVIEW

The GDS37xx can be connected with a SIP phone in 2 different ways, either using peering mode (without a SIP server) or through a SIP server/registrar.

This guide illustrates the needed configuration for integrating the GDS37xx with GRP26xx Series for both peering and using SIP server scenarios.

PEERING WITHOUT USING SIP SERVER

In this scenario, we assume that the GDS37xx is installed in a small warehouse at the front door and the GRP26xx IP Phone inside to monitor and control the access of the premise. Visitors need to press the doorbell button on the GDS37xx to initiate a video/audio call, and the related person at the GRP26xx IP Phone side can open the door remotely to allow the visitors to get in.

GRP26xx IP Phone peered with the GDS3710
  • The IP address used by the GDS3710 is 192.168.6.135
  • The IP address used by the GRP26xx IP Phone is 192.168.6.62

GDS37xx Configuration Settings

The GDS37xx needs to be configured with the IP address of the GRP26xx IP Phone, the related SIP port, and remote PIN for door opening. Please refer to the following configuration steps:

  1. Access the GDS37xx Web GUI and navigate to “Door System Settings🡪Basic Settings”.
  2. Select the ALMOUT1 Feature to “Open Door
  3. Depending on weather you want to control one or two doors, you can select the doors to be controlled from the control options.

4. Choose the action to be taken when the doorbell is pressed, three options are available:

  • Call Doorbell Number: when Doorbell is pressed, a call will be made to the “Number Called When Door Bell Pressed”
  • Control Doorbell Output (Digital Output 1): when Door Bell is pressed electronic lock for Output 1 is opened.
  • Both of Above: When selected, both Call Doorbell Number and Control Doorbell Output options are enabled. In our case, we will choose “Call Doorbell Number”. We will select option 1 “Call Doorbell Number

5. Under Number 1 Called When Door Bell Pressed field, enter the GRP26xx IP address and port number which is 192.168.6.62:5060 in our example.

6. Enter the “Remote PIN to Open the Door 1 ” in order to open the door via DTMF while in active call with the GDS37xx, the remote PIN used in our example is “123456”.

7. Incase you want to add two doors to be configured at once, then Enter the PIN for “Remote PIN to Open the Door 2” as well, set it to “123456”

8. Click button to apply changes.

9. You need to make sure that the Direct IP Call feature is enabled from the GDS37xx Web GUI under Phone Settings 🡪 Phone Settings 🡪 Enable Direct IP Call.

PEERING USING SIP SERVER

In this scenario, we assume that the GDS37xx is configured with a SIP account, and the GRP26xx IP Phone is also configured with a SIP account under the same SIP server.

We recommend using Stateless SIP server in this type of installations, Stateful SIP servers may not work.

GRP26xx Connected to GDS3710 through UCM6XXX
  • The IP address used by the GDS3710 is 192.168.5.119 and it is configured with SIP account 1001.
  • The IP address used by the GRP26xx IP Phone is 192.168.5.113 and it is configured with SIP account 1000.
  • The SIP server has the IP address 192.168.5.54

GDS37xx Configuration Setting

As mentioned in the previous diagram, the GDS37xx should be registered with a SIP account in order to interact with the GRP26xx IP Phone through the SIP server.

The GDS37xx SIP settings are available under the Web GUI🡪Account🡪Account(x).

After configuring the SIP account correctly, the user needs to configure the door system settings as detailed in the following steps:

  1. Select the ALMOUT1 Feature to “Open Door“, and depending on weather you want to control one or two doors, you can select the doors to be controlled from the control options.

2. Navigate to Door System Settings🡪Basic Settings then set the following:

CONFIGURATION RESULTS

Once someone presses the ring button on the GDS37xx, the door system will initiate automatically a call to the configured destination. In both cases, the users will have the ability to either answer the call, reject it or press the OpenDoor softkey, incase two doors are configured then depending on the GRP26xx model , either a list of two doors will be displayed and you can choose which door to open, or you can long press the OpenDoor softkey to alternate between the two doors to be opened.

Please refer to the screenshot below for the following GRP phone models:

  • GRP2624/GRP2634 IP Phones
GDS371x Video/Audio Call on GRP2624/GRP2634
  • GRP2614/GRP2615/GRP2616 IP Phones
GDS371x Video/Audio Call on GRP2614/GRP2615/GRP2616
  • GRP2612/GRP2613 IP Phones
GDS37xx Audio Call on GRP2612/GRP2613

Users can open the door using the following methods:

  1. Pressing the “OpenDoor” Softkey without answering the call => Once the users press the “OpenDoor” softkey, a SIP Message will be sent to the GDS37xx to remotely open the door.
  2. OpenDoor after answering the call => You can either press the “OpenDoor” Softkey, then a SIP Message will be sent to the GDS37xx to remotely open the door, or dial the code for “Remote PIN for Open the Door” followed by “#” (for example “123456#”), and then DTMF codes will be sent to open the door.

Pressing the “Reject” Softkey will reject the call received from the GDS37xx.

Note

Please note that when the GDS37xx device is added to UCM Remote Connect, then the MJPEG stream function will not work with the GRP26xx phone models, in this case, it is recommended to use a video phone model such as the GXV34xx to stream video feed on the GXV34xx from the GDS371x.
