In order to ensure technology devices remain robust and function perfectly in demanding environments, specific products are designed, modified or placed in protective housings with high protection ratings measured against the international standard known as IP rating or Ingress protection rating.
Understanding of the IP rating is essential to ensure your device is suitably sealed, protected and meets the required specification of operation in the environment outside of your house. After all, where have you seen special cases, like for smartphones, that one can buy to protect her doorbell from rain or shine?
So, how to decipher the IP rating of a product? IP54, IP55, IP65, IP66, IP67…. it always consists of two-digit number with the first number indicating resistance to solids and dust and the second number indicating resistance to dust. To put it simple, the higher the scale the better the device is offering protection between the dust and water.
But what does it ACTUALLY mean for us, mundane non-technical people, who simply want to choose a video doorbell that will take a place of honor at our doors and protect our peace of mind?
Tecom video doorbell D1021 has outdoor rating of IP65. It means that the user doesn’t have to worry that dust will accumulate inside the device over time or that moisture and humidity will influence the operation. The users can even use high pressure water jet over the doorbell and be not scared that its spray, or let alone the rain drops, will harm the device.
Tecom’s doorbell D1021 has rubber gasket sealing to ensure the protection rating.
Our product passed Ingress Protection tests conducted in accordance with IEC 60529 both internally and by a third party lab.
