IP Intercom For Door & Gate Entrances, Access Points & Room Intercom Applications

The 8201 SIP PoE Intercom is an IP doorphone for hands-free visitor communication at a secure entrance door or gate, access point and room intercom applications. This IP intercom / doorphone is outdoor rated, and is also a fully compliant 3rd party SIP endpoint. As a result, the 8201 is compatible with most hosted / cloud and premise-based VoIP telephone systems.

  • Wideband HD voice for high intelligibility speech.
  • Initiates or accepts intercom calls.
  • Outdoor rated – conformal coated electronics.
  • Backlit tactile silicon rubber call button.
  • Seamless relay activation via telephone keypad for secure door or gate entry.
  • One piece solution alternative to the popular 8028 SIP Doorphone.
  • Configuration via user friendly web interface or auto-provisioning.
  • PoE (IEEE 802.3af).
  • Ideal for door / gate entry, in addition to controlling access points to elevators, secure areas such as a day care, hospital ward, lab or data center. The 8201 is also popular as a room intercom applications (e.g., classroom, interview and medical examination rooms).


    The 8201 SIP PoE Intercom is UL/CSA, FCC and CE certified. A surface mount bracket is included for wall mounting, however, the intercom station can be flush mounted into a double gang box.

    Wideband Audio for Optimum Speech Clarity

    The 8201 SIP PoE Intercom supports Wideband G.722 codec (HD Voice) for optimum speech clarity and intelligibility. This IP intercom delivers reliable voice communication for building entry or access point communication with visitors and guests. The 8201 is also suitable for room intercom applications.


    Integrated IP Intercom Door Control Relay

    Algo Entrance Intercoms for Visitor Communication & Access ControlFor user convenience, the 8201 IP intercom allows door unlock control activated by a telephone key press from the answering or calling device. This requires a relay from the optional 8061 IP Relay Controller, which can be securely located away from the public facing intercom. Alternatively, an internal relay on the 8201 is available for door control where the entrance is a lower security risk.


    Simple & Intuitive Web GUI

    Installation and configuration are via a simple intuitive web interface, however, the 8201 also supports centralized provisioning. Before the device is registered with a SIP server, a simple press of the 8201 intercom call button when connected to the network will “speak” the IP address of the device. This time saving feature results in efficient registration and configuration via a simple and intuitive web browser GUI. Algo’s Network Device Locator is also available as a tool for obtaining an IP address for a device.


    UC Integration – Use Any Phone or Device to Communicate

    Integration with most hosted / cloud or premise VoIP telephone systems ensures that the 8201 can be configured to communicate with any device, phone or client that is part of the UC environment.

    To sum up, the 8201 is an outdoor rated IP intercom / doorphone. The endpoint is powered via PoE  (IEEE 802.3af). A surface mount bracket is included for easy wall installation, however, the intercom fits a standard double gang box for flush mounting. The product is CSA/UL, FCC and CE certified.
