1. Product Overview

The 2N® Helios IP door intercoms can smartly replace traditional doorbell push-button speakerphone panels and all wiring, bells and home intercom installations in buildings with structured cabling. The intercoms provide more advanced and wider services than standard home phones. The installation is very easy, all you need is connect the intercom to the other LAN elements using a UTP cable and set necessary parameters.

Thanks to the integrated SIP protocol, the intercom can make use of all VoIP services: call forwarding at absence (to another office, VoiceMail or a cellular phone) or call transfer (from the secretary’s office to the required person, e.g.).

The intercoms are equipped with a programmable number of quick dial buttons for speed calling to the users whose numbers are included in the intercom Phone Book. Each of the quick dial buttons can be assigned up to three phone numbers, which can be dialled in parallel or sequentially. Thanks to an integrated time sheet it is possible to configure each of the buttons in such a way that the called party is always accessible and/or calls to selected phone numbers can be barred off the working hours.

Some 2N® Helios IP models are equipped with a numeric keypad, which can be used as a code lock or a standard push-button phone.

The 2N® Helios IP intercoms help LAN users scan the area in front of the camera via video streaming. Thanks to the full ONVIF support, the intercoms can become part of the Video Surveillance System in your facility .

The 2N® Helios IP intercoms can be equipped with an RFID card reader for authorised access control and thus become a key part of your surveillance or attendance control systems.

The 2N® Helios IP intercom is equipped with a relay switch (and, optionally, other relays and outputs), which controls the electric lock or other equipment connected to the intercom. Its activation time and method can be programmed flexibly: it can be activated by a code, automatically by a call, by pressing a button, and so on.

The following symbols and pictograms are used in the manual:

2. Express Wizard for Basic Settings

LAN Connection Setting

You have to know the intercom configuration interface address to connect to the LAN successfully. Automatic IP address retrieval from the DHCP server is set by default in

the 2N® Helios IP intercoms. Thus, if connected to a network in which a DHCP server configured to assign IP addresses to all new devices is available, the intercom will obtain an IP address from the DHCP server. The intercom IP address can be found in the DHCP server status (according to the MAC address given on the production plate), or will be communicated to you by the intercom voice function; refer to the Installation Manual of your intercom model.

If there is no DHCP server in your LAN, use the intercom buttons to set the static IP address mode, refer to the Installation Manual of your intercom model. Your intercom address will then be Use it for the first login and then change it if necessary.

Now enter the intercom IP address into your favourite browser. We recommend you to

use the latest Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer 9+ versions as 2N® Helios IP is not fully compatible with earlier browser versions.

Use the name admin and password 2n (i.e. default reset password) for your first login to the configuration interface. We recommend you to change the default password upon your first login; refer to the Password parameter in the Services Web Server menu. Remember the password well or put it down just in case. Because if you forget the password, you will have to reset the intercom to default values (refer to the Installation Manual of your intercom model) and lose all your current configuration changes.

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


Firmware Update

We also recommend you to update your intercom firmware upon the first login to the intercom. Refer to www.2n.cz for the latest firmware version. Press the Update Firmware button in the System Maintenance menu to upload firmware. The intercom will get restarted upon upload and only then the updating process will be complete. The process takes about 30 seconds.

SIP Server Connection Setting

Set the following parameters in the Services Phone SIP menu to allow your intercom make calls and be accessible within your VoIP infrastructure.

Display name – set the name to be displayed as CLIP on the called party's phone, in the login window and on the web interface start page.

Phone number (ID) – set the intercom phone number (or another unique ID composed of characters and digits) to identify the intercom uniquely in calls and registration.

Domain – set the domain name of the service with which the intercom is registered. Typically, it is equivalent to the SIP Proxy or Registrar address. If you do not use a SIP Proxy in your intercom installation, enter the intercom IP address.

If you use a SIP server (Proxy, Registrar), set the addresses for the following network elements:

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


Proxy address – set the SIP Proxy IP address or domain name.

Registrar address – set the SIP Registrar IP address or domain name. The SIP Proxy and SIP Registrar addresses are usually identical.

Registration enabled – enable intercom registration with the set SIP Registrar.

If your SIP server requires authentication of terminal equipment, enter the following parameters:

Password – enter the password for intercom authentication.

Quick Dial Button Settings

All the 2N® Helios IP models are equipped with quick dial buttons. If you press a quick dial button, a call will be set up to the phone number assigned to the respective Phone Book position.

Select position 1, which corresponds to quick dial button 1, in the Directory Phone Book menu.

Enable the position in the Position Enabled field and enter the called station phone number into the Phone Number parameter in the User Phone Numbers section.

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


You can also use the 2N® Helios IP intercom with one or more IP phones without a SIP server. Use the Direct SIP Call for outgoing calls and enter the called phone SIP address (sip:phone_number@phone_ip_address) instead of the phone number.

Electric Lock Switching Settings

An electric lock can be attached to the 2N® Helios IP intercoms and controlled by a code from the intercom numeric keypad, or a code from the IP phone keypad during a call. Connect the electric lock as instructed in the Installation Manual of your intercom model.

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


Enable the switch in the Switch Enabled parameter in the Hardware Switches Switch 1 tab, set the Controlled Output to the intercom output to which the electric door lock is connected. Now set one or more activation codes for the electric door lock switching.

5.2 Directory

Here is what you can find in this subsection:


Phone Book


Time Profiles


Access Cards

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


5.2.1 Phone Book

The Phone Book is one of the crucial parts of tehe intercom configuration. It contains user information relevant for such intercom functions as quick dialling, RFID card/code door unlocking, missed call e-mails and so on.

The Phone Book is arranged as a table with up to 1999 positions (depending on the

particular 2N® Helios IP model): typically, each user is assigned just one position. The Phone Book includes information on the users that are accessible by quick dialling and users that are only allowed to enter the facility with their RFID cards. As the user Phone Book position substantially affects the intercom functions, please read the following text carefully and design the optimum layout according to your needs before filling the Phone Book with data.

Each intercom user has a specific Phone Book position: 1 through 1999. The user position number is very important as it also defines the quick dial button number as signed to the user. Therefore, place the user on the position that corresponds to the required quick dial button and complete the user phone number to make quick dialling

efficient. Most 2N® Helios IP models are equipped with one or more quick dial buttons. Refer to the Installation Manual of your intercom model for the button count, extending options and Phone Book position mapping details.

You are advised to place the users that are not supposed to be assigned any quick dial button but should have the right to enter the facility with the RFID card or numeric code onto the top positions of the Phone Book (position 100 and higher). If such user, for some reason, has to be placed on a position that corresponds to a quick dial button, leave the user phone number parameter empty and complete the door unlocking RFID card ID or numeric code only. Thus, you will make the quick dial button act as a non-programmed key.

In case the number of the users that are to be accessible by the intercom is higher than the count of the quick dial buttons installed, you can enable user dialling by entering the Phone Book position via the numeric keypad: the caller dials the position number and pushes the * key. Enable this using the **** parameter in the *** menu. If you decide to use this user calling method, you are advised to place a clear list of user names and Phone Book positions including brief instructions near the intercom.

You can also combine quick button dialling and numeric keypad dialling. In this case, reserve the Phone Book beginning positions for the quick dial buttons and complete the higher positions (from position 100 up, e.g.) with data on the users to be included in

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


the public user list. Then select the users to be accessible by quick dialling and copy their phone numbers to the lower Phone Book positions corresponding to the quick dial buttons.

Refer to the Directory Phone Book menu for the Phone Book settings. Use the navigation panel for selecting the Phone Book positions easily and arrows for scrolling pages. Or, you can enter the position number and push XXX to move to the position quickly. If you know the user's name, use the XXX field to find its position.

List of Parameters

Position enabled – enable calling to this Phone Book position.

Name – enter the user name for the selected Phone Book position. This parameter is optional and helps you find items in the Phone Book more easily. E-mail – enter the user E-mail to which information on missed or successful calls can be sent. Refer to the E-Mail subsection for more details.

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


You can assign up to three user phone numbers to each Phone Book position. In case the user is inaccessible on one number, the following number will be dialled after a ringing timeout. Enable the Parallel call to following number to enable dialling multiple numbers simultaneously. The phone number validity can also be time profile-limited.

Phone number – enter the phone number of the station to which the call shall be routed. Enter the address sip:[user_id@]domain[:port] for Direct SIP calling, e.g.: sip:200@ or sip:name@yourcompany.

Enter device:device_name for calls to the 2N® Helios IP Mobile application. Set the device name in the mobile application.

Time profile – assign a time profile to each phone number to define the number validity. If the profile in inactive, the phone number is not used and the following phone number is dialled if defined.

Helios IP Eye Address – set the address of the PC to be sent a special UDP message on each active user phone number call. With the aid of this message,

the 2N® Helios Eye application displays the camera image screen for those users who are not provided with a display-equipped videophone. Enter the address as follows: ip_address[:port1][:port2]. The port1 and port2 parameters are optional and are used in case there is Network Address

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


Translation (NAT) between the PC and intercom and the addresses have to comply with the router or another NAT-executing device. The port1 (default value: 8003) parameter defines the destination port for the UDP messages sent

to 2N® Helios IP Eye. The port2 (default value: 80) parameter defines the destination port for the 2N® Helios IP Eye – intercom HTTP communication.


The 'Helios IP Eye Address' function is available in selected 2N® Helios IP models only (refer to the model and licence overview).

Parallel call to following number – enable group calling, i.e. calling to more phone numbers at the same time. You can call the first two numbers, the last two numbers, or all of the three user numbers in parallel. Answering one call automatically terminates the other calls.

User deputy – select a user to which the user calls will be routed in the event of inaccessibility. The deputy setting is applied when the user fails to answer the call to any of its phone numbers within the predefined timeout, or if the user numbers are inaccessible for other reasons (time profiles, user deactivation).


The User Deputy function is available in selected 2N® Helios IP models only (refer to the model and licence overview).

Each intercom user can be assigned its activation/deactivation code for call routing purposes. If a user is deactivated, calls are routed not to its phone numbers but to the predefined user deputy at inaccessibility.

User activation code – set a private user activation code: up to 16 characters including digits 0-9 only. If the user activation code is the only code defined or the activation and deactivation codes are identical, the activation code is used both for user activation and deactivation.

User deactivation code – set a private user deactivation code: up to 16 characters including digits 0-9 only.

User current state – select the current state of the user.

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


Each user can be assigned a private switch activation code. The user switch codes can be arbitrarily combined with the universal switch codes defined in the Hardware | Switches menu. If the codes are identical with the codes already defined in the

intercom configuration, the mark will appear at the colliding codes.

Code – set a private user switch activation code: up to 16 characters including digits 0–9 only.

Time profile – assign a time profile to the switch code to define the code validity. If the time profile is inactive, the switch will not be activated by the code.

Each of the intercom users can be assigned one access RFID card. Refer to the Access Cards subsection for details.

Card ID – set the user access card ID: 6–16 characters including 0–9, A–F. Each user can be assigned just one access card.

Time profile – assign a time profile to the user access card to define the card validity. If the time profile is inactive, the user access card will be detected as invalid.

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


5.2.2 Time Profiles

Such intercom functions as outgoing calls and RFID card/numeric code access, for example, can be time-limited by being assigned a time profile. By assigning a time profile you can:

block all calls to a selected user beyond the set time interval

block calls to selected phone numbers beyond the set time interval

block RFID access for a user beyond the set time interval

block numeric code access for a user beyond the set time interval block switch activation beyond the set time interval

Assign a time profile according to a week time sheet to define availability of the selected function. Just set from-to or days in the week on which the function shall be

available. 2N® Helios IP helps you create up to 20 time profiles (depending on the 2N

® Helios IP model) that can be assigned to the function; refer to the Phone Book, Access Cards and Switches settings.

The time profiles are defined not only using the week time sheet but also manually with the aid of special activation/deactivation codes that you can assign to them after arriving in/before leaving your office, for example. Enter the activation/deactivation codes using the numeric keypad of your intercom or phone (during the intercom call). Refer to the Directory Time Profiles menu for the time profile settings.


In case you use the 2N® Helios IP Manager for intercom configuration, we do not recommend you to modify the time profile settings via the web interface.

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


List of Parameters

Profile name – enter a profile name. This parameter is optional and helps you find items in the time profile list and select profiles in the switch, card and phone number settings more easily.

This parameter helps you set time profiles within a week period. A profile is active when it matches the set intervals. Make sure that the real time settings are correct (refer to the Date and Time subsection) to make this function work properly.


Check off a day and set the From/To fields to 00:00 to make a time profile active the whole day.

If the profile activation/deactivation code is not defined, the profile state is based on the time sheet exclusively.

If you apply a time profile together with the activation/deactivation code, the profile will be active only if the time condition is met and the profile is code-activated at the same time.

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


Profile activation code – set the profile activation code: 16 characters including digits 0–9 only. If the activation code is the only code defined or the activation and deactivation codes are identical, then the activation code is used both for profile activation and deactivation.

Profile deactivation code – set the profile deactivation code: 16 characters including digits 0–9 only.

Profile current state – select the current state of the user.

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


5.2.3 Access Cards

Each intercom user can be assigned one or more access RFID cards. Typically, the card ID is included in the Phone Book together with such user data as phone numbers, E-mail address and so on. Or, you can define the RFID cards in the Installed Cards list, which defines a limited number of unassigned cards reserved for visitors, for example.

You can manage – add, remove and modify items – the list of installed cards manually via the intercom configuration interface. The main advantage of this list is the option to add/remove using the Service plus/minus cards without accessing the configuration interface. Unlike the Phone Book with its up to 1999 positions, the Installed Cards may contain only 20 cards.

To add a card to the list, apply the plus card and then tap the card to be added on the reader. The RFID card will be added if the list in not full and does not include the card yet. To remove a card from the list, apply the minus card and then tap the card to be removed on the reader. The RFID card record will be cancelled and access via this card will be blocked.

Service cards help you add/remove cards to/from the list. Enter their IDs in the Plus Card ID and Minus Card ID fields in the Service Cards: 6–16 characters including 0–9, A–F (i.e. hexadecimal number of the length of 24 to 64 bits). The number of characters in the card ID can be different in different card types. However, it holds true that cards of one and the same type have identically long IDs.

If your external card reader is connected to the intercom via the Wiegand interface, the card ID is shortened to 6 or 8 characters for transmission (depending on the transmission parameters). If you apply a card to the reader, you will receive a complete ID, which is typically longer (8 chars or more). The last 6 or 8 characters, however, are identical. This is useful for comparing card IDs with the intercom database: if the IDs to be compared have different lengths, they are compared from the end and match has to be found in 6 characters at least. If they have identical lengths, all the characters are compared. This ensures mutual compatibility of the internal and external readers. Go to the Directory Access Cards Records menu to identify whether the card was tapped on the internal or external reader.

All cards applied via the reader or the Wiegand interface are recorded. Refer to the Directory Access Cards Records menu for the last 10 cards including the card ID/type, card tapping time and other information if necessary. With small systems, you can make a trick to enter card IDs: tap the card on the intercom reader and find it in

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz


the Records. Double-click to select the card ID and push CTRL+C. Now that you have the card ID in your box, you can insert it with CTRL+V in any intercom setting field.

Having been read, the card ID is compared with the intercom card database. If the card ID matches any of the cards in the database, the appropriate action will be executed: switch activation (door unlocking, etc.). To change the switch number to be activated, use the Associated Switch parameter in the Hardware Card Reader me

nu (2N® Helios IP Vario, Force, Safety models) or the Associated Switch paramet

er in the Hardware Modules menu of the card reader module (2N® Helios IP Verso model).

Refer to the Directory Access Cards menu for the access card settings.

List of Parameters


Plus card ID – enter the service card ID for adding cards to the Installed cards: a sequence of 6–16 characters including 0–9, A–F.
