Viking K-1270 12 Button Apartment Entry Phone With Proximity Reader

Viking K-1270 12 Button Apartment Entry Phone With Proximity Reader


SKU: K-1270

The Viking K-1270 Entry Phone with proximity reader is a two-way, handsfree apartment entry telephone with 12 buttons for calling individual residences in an apartment building. The K-1270 features an integrated 125 KHz Proximity Reader. The rugged stainless steel faceplate has a printed directory housed in a waterproof, scratch-resistant lens. Each button is beside the tenant’s name in the directory so there are no confusing codes to deal with. Calling a particular tenant is as easy as pressing a single button.

The Viking K-1270 has a built-in speed dialer that can handle up to 12 primary phone numbers, each with 22 digits. If there is no answer at the first number, a second number can be called automatically. Once the tenant answers their phone, a single touch tone command can activate the door strike relay. For “no phone line” applications, the K-1270 is compatible with the Viking C-3000 “No CO” (phone line) controller.

For outdoor installations where the unit is exposed to precipitation or condensation, use model K-1270-EWP. For more information on Enhanced Weather Protection (EWP)
