GSS has a long standing history of introducing innovation using consumer market insights. In the development of SEETHRU 7, the needs of the target audience were identified – as the need to be able to communicate with people who visited when no one was home to shield the elderly and children from unknown visitors. Additional insights were identified, such as, ability to answer the VDP without having to walk to the indoor unit at the door, ability to retrieve the stored images etc. The features of SeeThru7 has been a result of understanding these consumer needs giving a “control” to the home owner when away.

On the occasion of the launch, Mr Mehernosh B. Pithawalla, Head-Marketing, Godrej Security Solutions commented, “We are proud to launch such evolving products such as the current SEETHRU 7 video Door Phone which epitomizes Godrej Security Solution’s vision to provide innovative solutions for home security. This product not only ensures home safety but also provides additional benefits for the customer when he is not at home.”

SEETHRU 7 utilises the already existing landline of the user which allows him to talk to visitors even when he away. The user only has to switch on the ‘follow me’ mode which will prompt the VDP to dial in a pre-fed telephone number whenever it is buzzed. Conventional VDP’s generally just click a photograph and store them for reference purpose.

SEETHRU comes with an option to view the feed on a television, eliminating the need to walk to the unit. Upto 3 indoor monitors are supported by the device which extends the monitoring capabilities into the bedroom, kitchen, study etc. There is an additional intercom/call forwarding facility amongst these units. The VDP can also be used in multi-entrance accommodations such as villas and monitor critical areas of the residence by supporting a maximum of 4 CCTV camera.

Additional security features include capturing an image of the visitor whenever the VDP is activated. These images are now retrievable by the use of a removable SD card. The CCTVs installed can also have an integrated software based motion detection system which would record a small clip whenever there is motion in front of the camera.

With a stylish touch panel, the SEETHRU 7 serves a dual function of addressing the security need of the user as well as adds an aesthetic appeal to the house owing to its contemporary design. The product is available at all leading electronic retail stores and e-commerce websites for a price of Rs. 18999/-.
