Connecting GDS37xx with GXP Phones

  • Updated on August 24, 2022

GDS3705 is an audio door access system, an innovative IP based powerful door system. The GDS3705 was built for users looking for a strong audio-only facility access and security monitoring solution that can be deployed in environments of all sizes. This audio door system features dual microphones and HD loudspeaker with advanced AEC to offer intercom functionality, can support SIP calls to IP phones and has a built-in RFID chip reader and keypad for secured keyless or key entry.

GDS3710 HD is an IP video door system with a built-in hemispheric camera and some high-definition video capabilities. GDS3710 is ideal for monitoring from wall to wall without blind spots. Powered by an advanced Image Sensor Processor (ISP) and state of the art image algorithms, it delivers exceptional performance in all lighting conditions. It contains integrated PoE, LEDs, HD loudspeaker, RFID card reader, motion detector, lighting control switch, Alarm Input/output and more.

The GDS3705 audio door access system features industry-leading SIP/VoIP for 2- way audio to smart phones and SIP phones, and the GDS3710 IP video door system features industry-leading SIP/VoIP for 2-way audio and video streaming to smart phones and SIP phones, allowing to receive calls from GDS37XX on associated SIP phones when doorbell is pressed, opening door from the SIP phone, initiate calls from the phone to GDS3705 to get real time audio stream, and GDS3710 to get real time Video/Audio stream with GXP21xx IP Phones and only Audio stream with GXP17xx and GXP16xx IP Phones.

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 needed configuration for integrating the GDS37XX with GXP Series for both peering and using SIP server scenarios.

PEERING SCENARIO

In this scenario, we assume that the GDS3710 is installed on a small warehouse at front door and GXP IP Phone inside to monitor and control the access of the premise. Visitors need to press the doorbell button on the GDS3710 to initiate a video/audio call or only an audio call (depending on what the GXP Phone supports), and the related person at the GXP IP Phone side can open the door remotely to allow the visitors to get in as shown in the figure below.

Figure 1: GXP IP Phones peered with the GDS3710
  • The IP address used by the GDS3710 is 192.168.6.135.
  • The IP address used by the GXP IP Phone is 192.168.6.62.

GDS37XX Configuration Settings

The GDS37XX needs to be configured with the IP address of the GXP IP Phone, the related SIP port, and remote PIN for door opening. Please refer to following configuration steps:

  1. Access the GDS37XX Web GUI and navigate to “Door System Settings🡪Basic Settings”.
  2. 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”.
  1. Under Number Called When Door Bell Pressed field, enter the GXP IP address and port number which is 192.168.6.62:5060 in our example.
  2. Enter the “Remote PIN to Open the Door” in order to open the door via DTMF while in active call with the GDS37XX, the remote PIN used in our example is “123456”.
  3. Click button to apply changes.

GXP IP Phones Configuration

The GXP IP Phone related account needs to be set as “Active”, and the “Local SIP Port” needs to match the port configured on GDS37XX. Please refer to following steps for configuring the GXP IP Phone in order to interconnect with the GDS37XX.

  1. Access GXP IP Phone Web GUI🡪Account🡪General Settings and set “Account Active” to Yes, then click on button to apply the new changes.

  1. Navigate to Account🡪SIP Settings and verify that the Local SIP Port configured on the GXP IP Phone is the same as the one on the GDS37XX.
Figure 5: Account(x) SIP Settings
  1. Navigate to Settings🡪External Service to configure GDS settings as explained on the following:
  • Set the Service Type to GDS.
  • Select the related account, in our example, the account used is Account 1.
  • Specifies the System Identification, to identify the GDS37XX, in our example its “GDS3710_Front_Door”.
  • Specifies the System Number which is the GDS37XX number, the system number used in our example is 192.168.6.135.
  • Configures the Access Password for opening the door remotely and it should match the password configured under “Remote PIN to Open the Door on the GDS37XX Web GUI settings. The password used in our example is “123456”.

  1. Press button to apply the new settings.

1. The GXP21xx/ GXP17xx/ GXP16xx IP Phones support up to 10 GDS37XX items. 2. GXP16xx and GXP17xx series support audio only. 3. GXP21xx series support audio and video (JPEG) when integrated with GDS3710.

CONNECTION USING SIP SERVER

In this scenario, we assume that the GDS3710 is configured with a SIP account and the GXP 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.

  • The IP address used by the GDS3710 is 192.168.6.135 and it’s configured with SIP account 2002.
  • The IP address used by the GXP IP Phone is 192.168.6.62 and it is configured with SIP account 2001.

GDS37XX Configuration Settings

As mentioned on the previous diagram, the GDS37XX should be registered with a SIP account in order to interact with the GXP IP Phone through the SIP server.

The GDS3710 SIP settings are available under the Web GUI🡪Account🡪Account(x).

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

  1. Navigate to Door System Settings🡪Basic Settings then set the following:
  • Doorbell Mode: Call Doorbell Number.
  • Number Called When Door Bell Pressed: the GXP IP Phone number which is 2001 in our example.
  • Remote PIN to Open the Door: the remote PIN used in our example is “123456”.
  1. Click button to apply changes.

The following figure shows an example of the configuration.

OPEN DOOR FEATURE

GXP IP Phones offer a powerful integration with GDS37XX Door System and allow users to remotely open the door, initiate calls to the GDS37XX and get real time audio/video or only audio stream.

Once someone presses the ring button on the GDS3710, 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.

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 containing the code for “Remote PIN for Open the Door” will be sent to the GDS3710 to remotely open the door.

  1. OpenDoor after answering the call:
  • Press the “OpenDoor” Softkey, then a SIP Message containing the code for “Remote PIN for Open the Door” will be sent to the GDS3710 to remotely open the door.
  • 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 GDS3710.
