Operators are then able to confirm visually and audibly if the caller and then direct them accordingly.

System Description

System Type
CAP IP & Xellip


The Xellip IP audio and video intercom solution supplied by Castel is both robust and aesthetically pleasing. It is simple to use and can be applied in a variety of internal and external locations, such as bollard control, lift lobbies, disabled access and so on.  One of the requirements was that all of the 10 intercoms needed to be capable of calling back to specific, dedicated reception areas and then be diverted, out of hours, to a secondary location. 

Many of the intercom units needed customised housing to help them blend into the Gothic style of the main buildings, while still providing maximum efficiency.  Castel was able to supply this customisation down to the finest details, even installing the Xellip IP intercom units into customised brass housing, without losing any acoustic quality.

According to a representative of the installer, “Working with Castel made our job very simple. They provided the pre-programmed solution and there was highly efficient turnaround from order to delivery.  Many of the intercoms needed customised housing. Castel was able to provide solutions that suited every situation, even where additional card-readers needed to be included.”

The CAP IP V1B (single-button video) intercom has now been installed at the depot’s gates and barriers. The system calls back to operators who use Castel’s Xellip Media Softphone on their PCs to answer calls and view images. Calls are diverted out of hours to the Southeastern Trains control room, which is at a different location.

Thanks to the ease of installation of the Castel equipment and the way in which Castel’s intercoms can be integrated into Southeastern’s expanding system, further access control solutions at the site have been earmarked for development throughout 2014.

Darren Elvin, Managing Director of ICL Solutions, the installation contractor, recommends Castel.
We have worked with Castel on a number of projects now,”he said.  “Recommending them for this project was easy for us, as we knew that their product would fit the bill. Being able to rely on both the quality of the product and service, we knew the client would be happy with the finished solution.”
