Relay Settings (Edge)

This article describes how to configure the Relays of stations used in an IC-EDGE System.

By default the relay is preconfigured to generate a 3 second pulse when the station receives "DTMF" digit "6" during an established call (Door Opening feature).

If there is a need to change the Relay operation, this is done at the Edge Controller, which will push configuration to the actual station. There is no need to log on to each individual station.

Configuration of relay:

  • Log on to the Edge Controller, and select Edge Controller > System Configuration > Special Settings
  • Under the Relay column, select Show/Hide Settings for the station on which you want to configure the relay
Relay configuration



Choose Relay to Configure:

  • Depending on the station/device model, it might have one or more relays. In the Choose Relay to Configure dropdown, you select which of the relays you want to configure. One can also operate a relay on a Remote Device.

There are 4 different states: on, off, slow blinking and fast blinking. The relay state can change either with a remote digit (DTMF signal) during a call, or if the station state changes.

Remote DTMF digit during call:

  • Remote Digit For Relay On/Off/Slow flash/Fast flash: Change the relay to on/off/Slow flash/Fast flash state when the specified remote DTMF digit is received
  • Remote Digit For Relay Toggle: Toggles the relay on/off every time the specified DTMF digit is received
  • Remote Digit For Relay Timed Relay On: Choose which remote digit (DTMF signal) should pulse the relay for the number of seconds specified in Timed Relay Duration. This state is normally used for Door Opening feature.

Change of station state:

  • Outgoing Ringing / Incoming Ringing: Operate the relay while the station is ringing due to an incoming or outgoing call. The ringing state lasts until the call has been answered, or the ringing times out.
  • Outgoing Call / Incoming Call: Operate the relay while the station is in conversation. The call state occurs from the call is accepted until the call ends.
  • Group Call: Operate the relay when the station receives a group call
  • Idle: Choose which state the relay should change to when the station is in idle (no active calls).
  • Error: Choose which state the relay should change to when the station is off-line (not registered to the Edge Controller).

Operating the relay of a Remote Device

Controlling Remote Relay unit in safe area

For security reasons it might not be desired to use the relay of the door intercom itself, but instead control the relay of a remote relay unit located in a safe area.

Typical remote relay units can be:


Configuration of remote relay:

  • Log on to the Edge Controller, and select Edge Controller > System Configuration > Special Settings
  • Under the Relay column, select Show/Hide Settings for the door intercom
  • In the Choose Relay to Configure dropdown, select Remote Device.

Enter Remote Device Settings:

  • The IP Address of Remote Device
  • Which relay to use
  • Pulse time of the relay in seconds
  • Which digit to trigger the relay
Pressing digit "6" while in communication with door station 12, will operate relay 1 of the remote device 10.9.8.132 for 3 seconds.
