Grandstream GDS3710 IP Video Intercom Review
Read all about the Grandstream GDS3710 IP Video Intercom
The Grandstream GDS3710 is the American Telecoms Developer’s latest IP surveillance camera and IP intercom designed to provide a next-generation security solution to keep businesses safe from harm.
Offering a diverse set of powerful, market-leading security support features, the GDS3710 claims to be one of the most advanced security intercoms on the market and protects users from a number of threats – but how much truth is there in these claims?
In order to find out, we’ve decided to do a review on the product and test how well it lives up to Grandstream’s reputation as one of the world’s leading producers of high quality business IP phones.
How does it look?
Measuring out at 173mm (H) x 80mm (W) x 36mm (D), the GDS3710 is a subtle yet effective, wall-mountable intercom that houses a powerful IP surveillance camera capable of recording video across a 180-degree angle for maximum coverage.
What can it do?
Each GDS3710 intercom comes complete with a 180-degree 1080p HD video camera that projects crystal clear, high quality video footage so users can easily analyse the face of the person/people looking to gain entry.
As well as this, the GDS3710 also provides a built-in microphone and HD speakerphone for pristine audio clarity alongside a RFID chip reader that allows employees to gain fast entry to the building without the need for a key or code.
Powered by an advanced Image Sensor Processor (ISP) and top-of-the-line image algorithms, the GDS3710 also offers exceptional performance with HTTP API for third party redevelopment.
For added security, the motion sensor alarm and GDS3710’s VoIP technology means that both audio and video captured by the intercom can be streamed through to a person’s smartphone, tablet or laptop for round-the-clock protection outside of business hours.
With integrated PoE, installing the GDS3710 requires no surplus electronic wiring and can be powered and connected to the network by a single Ethernet cable.

What did we like most?
When you consider the fact that the majority of break-in attempts happen outside of business hours, we were especially impressed with the way that the GDS3710 allows users to stream audio and video directly to their personal devices for round the clock surveillance and peace of mind.
Who is it for?
All businesses can benefit from bumping up their security, but we believe the GDS3710 is especially useful for those who keep a lot of valuables on site or have offices/workspaces based in secluded areas that are prime targets for criminals.

UC Today Opinion
In terms of keeping businesses secure and giving users much greater control over who is able to access the building, we feel that the GDS3710 truly excels and investing in one no doubt takes a huge weight off the mind of those responsible for keeping the building secure.
