The Grandstream GDS3710 is an IP Video Door System that also serves as a high-definition IP surveillance camera and IP intercom to offer facility access control and security monitoring.

Video calls to and from the device are supported, but support is dependent upon a common video codec being supported by the GDS3710 and SIP terminal. The installer should undertake checks to ensure compatibility between the SIP terminal and doorphone, in the event that there is no common video codec then an audio-only call will be set up. SIP audio uses commonly supported codecs and should be available for most devices.
