Video door phone, Intercom on GUI and MAIOR Video door phone on GUI (TDS12052 and TDS12053 only)

The TELETASK MAIOR (TDS12051, TDS12052 and TDS12053) is a “built in” PC with touchscreen designed for GUI+. Besides the standard GUI+ functionalities, the TELETASK MAIOR also offers the possibility to integrate an IP based video door phone system (TDS12052 and TDS12053 only).

Video door phone/intercom integration is also available on other touchscreens running GUI+ (if they are equipped with a microphone and speakers).
This chapter contains instruction specific for MAIOR touchscreens, but integrating video door phone / intercom on other touchscreens is similar.
Analogue video door phone systems can be integrated with TELETASK GUI+ if they are converted to IP (see TDS10119).

The steps necessary for video door phone/intercom integration are:

  • Create IP cameras / Doors and Intercom stations (in the remainder of this chapter both the door units and the Intercom stations will be referred to as ‘stations’, unless the info is specific for one type of station.)
  • Create a GUI+ for TELETASK (MAIOR)
  • Add the Video door phone icon (optional)
  • GUI+:
  • Set up VoIP server and VoIP user
  • Assign fixed IP to MAIOR


Create IP cameras / Doors

See chapter “Cameras & Doors” under PROSOFT – Starting a project for detailed instructions.

Create a GUI+

The creation of a GUI+ configuration for a TELETASK MAIOR is similar to the creation of another GUI+. Only the ‘Target Device resolution’ needs to be set to ‘TDS12051 MAIOR’, “TDS12052 MAIOR” or “TDS12053 MAIOR”.

Add the video door phone item (optional)

By default the video door phone screen is displayed on the first GUI+ page (favourites) at the moment someone rings the bell. After the conversation the video door phone screen disappears again (when changing the page or executing another function on the GUI+).
If you would like to have the video door phone screen appear on another page or you would like to use the intercom functionality, you can add the video door phone screen manually on GUI+.
To do this select the icon “Camera and URL” and drag the video door phone image to the desired place on the desired page.
The screen ‘Edit GUI Item’ opens automatically. Here you can change the image, the icon and the ‘default open settings (like for any other GUI Item).

REMARK: you can add the video door phone icon only once per GUI+ configuration. If you delete the item, you can add it again (e.g. on a different page).


Set Up VoIP server and VoIP user

For VoIP you need a VoIP server, this server acts as PBX (telephone exchange). Each device that makes a connection on this server is a VoIP client.
The TELETASK MAIOR comes with a pre-configured VoIP server installed. If another VoIP server is already present (e.g. in a hybrid analogue/VoIP telephone exchange) the VoIP server in the TELETASK MAIOR is not needed. But if no VoIP server is present, no extra costs need to be made for this.
If two or more TELETASK MAIOR devices are placed in the same installation, one of the TELETASK MAIOR devices will act as VoIP server.
In the VoIP server on TELETASK MAIOR the following numbers are available:

  • 101-107: Numbers reserved for TELETASK MAIOR devices ( password is the same as the ID)
  • 901-907: Numbers reserved for door units.

To configure the VoIP server and user on the TELETASK MAIOR start your GUI+, go to the locations screen and click the ‘Settings’ button at the bottom.
Enter the VoIP server address and the VoIP User.
If the TELETASK MAIOR for which you are configuring the VoIP server is the VoIP server itself, you can leave the address on (this is the case if you have no other VoIP server present and only one TELETASK MAIOR). In other cases add the IP address of the VoIP server.
The default port for SIP is 5060
The VoIP user can be 101-107 (if the TELETASK MAIOR is the VoIP server), with the same password.

Assign a fixed IP address to MAIOR

If the MAIOR is used as VoIP server it is important to assign a static IP address to the MAIOR touchscreen. Assigning a static IP address to a MAIOR touchscreen is the same as assigning a static IP address to a Windows XP computer. But the MAIOR touchscreens are equipped with special software to protect them from undesired (spyware, viruses) / incorrect (during installation) changes to the operating system. When the MAIOR restarts all changes to the operating system, including changes to the IP settings, are lost unless the MAIOR is restarted using this special software.
After the IP address is changed to the correct static one, and the VoIP system is tested, use the “call ewf tool” available from the “start” menu on the MAIOR to permanently save the settings.
