Act quickly and flexibly ‒ any time, anywhere.
Simply start your Web Client ‒ that is all that’s needed to turn any work desk into a fully functional Intercom control desk. That’s because the ComWIN Web Client lets you add a clean, easy-to-use visualisation interface to your usual desktop Intercom terminal with audio connection. No need for extra software or user trainings.
Instead of having to punch in cryptic codes, you can work with convenient, clearly structured lists. All relevant information is presented to you at a glance, allowing you to prioritise and answer calls and forward them as needed while keeping an eye on visual information provided via CCTV links. If required, you can even control external equipment such as doors or barrier gates right from within your ComWIN Web Client on your terminal.
A common browser and network connection is all you need to expand any Intercom station into an effective and efficient control desk. This way, you can get the most from your Intercom terminal at a minimum of resources.
Here are the simple steps to get your ComWIN 3 Web Client going:
- Once you have installed the central ComWIN Web Server, you have immediate access to all Intercom Server information from any connected terminal.
- All Web Clients can be centrally configured with maximum ease at minimum effort. Simply define your required structure, import the Intercom elements, perform a final test and ‒ you’re done!
- The optimised user interface ensures ultimate ease of use for the full range of features and functions.
- There is no need to install any additional software at the work desk. A common HTML5-capable browser is all that is needed to start working straight away, without any functional limitations.
This means you get a solution that is instantly ready for action while lowering your engineering and maintenance expenses by 75%. What is more, you can scale your control desks to your needs, which enables you to suit your system’s performance to the level of demand. As a result, you can always offer optimum service while still keeping your costs at a minimum.

Fast, secure, easy to use: ComWIN Web Client
A display and an HTML5-capable browser ‒ that is all you need to start benefitting from perfect overviews and short reaction times. No need for local software configuration. No matter which browser or operating system you are using, your required data are always right at your fingertips.
Even complex Intercom information is pre-structured and delivered in a clean, list-based interface layout. No cryptic codes to decipher ‒ all information is presented in the form of plain text and logical actions. What is more, event-based actions will automatically switch the display to the required view.
This way, you can answer calls without delay, forward them as necessary, receive complementary video images, and even control third-party equipment such as door actuators, barrier gates, etc.
