Status display
Vital for barrier-free access: the status display. This provides the hard of hearing with clear feedback from the intercom.
Barrier-free construction is about far more than installing wheelchair ramps and widening doors. Buildings must also be capable of overcoming functional hurdles, for example for the hard of hearing. These requirements are formulated in Germany, for instance, by the DIN 18040 standard: “In the case of duplex intercom systems, an optical signal must indicate that the other party is ready to hear. In manually activated doors with electrical door latch release (known colloquially as buzzer) release of the door must be signalled optically or by means of a tangible vibration."

The status display fulfils currently relevant statutory requirements for disabled people and equality legislation as well as "barrier-free construction" standards in respect of visual signalling at the door.
> Standards

The status display provides an optical indication of which function is currently active. It can be supplemented by an additional acoustic signal. This affords people with restricted vision clear feedback from the intercom.
> Functions

The status display is available for the installation systems In-Home bus, Multi and Access. It can be integrated in the Siedle Vario, Classic and Steel design lines.

Door stations of the Siedle Vario and Siedle Classic design lines can be virtually equipped in the configurator with a status display and individually designed. The system illustrated in the photo can be found in the configurator under the following link:
