This is Jeff with MyDoorView. We have just released our new 7" panel, 10" inch is scheduled for release in June '20.
Please feel free to email me for a spec sheet. Jeff@mydoorview.com - I have included some features below.
Also: Our original product launched in 2014 is a software platform with the ability to add streaming video to any brand of legacy telephone entry, much less expensive than replacing a panel.
The VEU-7 By MyDoorView
VEU-7” Entry System is an exterior rated access call box for residential, multi-family and commercial applications. The system was developed by MyDoorView with open architecture software for third party integration.
Our portal is used for resident and feature management and allows for network integrations with other service providers streamlining database management.
SIP/IP calling via POE
A single POE (power over ethernet) connection is used to provide both data and power to the VUE-7 panel up to 300 feet from head-end.
Video Calling to Phone, Tablet, and PC
The resident will view who is at the door and be able to release the door-lock from the app giving access to the visitors. With one-way video, two-way voice, visitors will not be able to see the resident, but the resident will see the visitor.
Video and Still Image - Date and Time Logging
The resident app and management portal display an image of all pin uses and a five-second video of all video calls with date, time and name of resident called. Data is stored for 90 days and can be exported via CSV.
One call from the panel will call all devices in the group. Family groups can be added by management in the portal (resident control of this feature is due Q2-2020).
Limited Use Pins
This allows residents to send an entry pin from the MyDoorView app via text to a guest that will auto-expire after a pre-determined time and/or a pre-determined number of uses from 1-99. All successful and failed pin uses will capture an image. More than five failed attempts in a row will notify management by SMS text and/or email with images.
Door and Gate Control
This helps management monitor the traffic and keep track of all vehicles and/or people entering the property, creating entry logs.
Anti-glare Tempered Touch Glass
Matte finish reduces glare, resists fingerprints, and supports gloved hands.
Flush Mount, Surface Mount and Surface Mount with Rain Hood.
1 Year Warranty
Operating temp: -4 to 140 degrees F

WE converted from Coop to Condo in 2007. We changed management and were unfamiliar if Condos get property tax abatements so we asked our new management . Our new managements said no Condos do not get them ( I was a President at the time as I recall). We stupidly believed them for why would they lie?. Well in 2016 I was speaking to a City employee for the DOB and they said Condos most certainly are entitled to Property tax abatements. They emailed me a form and I confronted our management with the form. They then said that it is only for new condos, another lie (fool us once , but not twice). I said where does it say that??. I made them fill out the forms but it took a year to get everyone's SS# (which they really should have had all along if you asked me) We still did not get anything only for them to say they put the wrong code in and we should get them retroactive for those two years that I made them apply for. We should get it in October--well October came and went no tax abatements.
Then the CEO said the tax abatements on a Board member's tax bill who had some credit of 3 dollars was the tax abatement( was not listed as a tax abatement, just a credit). Ridiculous!. I know we use to get $450 or there about as a coop. Is he kidding?? I called the DOB and they said we should get tax abatement approx. $1,000.00 per unit and we should be getting it.
WE lost out all those 10 years of having our taxes reduced by 28.1 percent due to managements lies to us that Condos do not get tax abatementst. Approximately $1,000 per unit. One Board member said it was just due to laziness on managements part and shrugged it off. No way should that much money be shrugged off. What can be done besides just contacting an attorney. Any suggestions?. How are condo tax abatements dispersed? I will also call the DOB to find out for I do not trust management.
The unit I sold beginning of 2019 got the 2019/2020 Coop Abatement but when it was disbursed to the unit, I was no longer a shareholder. The buyer received the credit.
I read articles and answers about the Coop Abatement on this site and found the following:
the abatement doesn't belong to the co-op. It's one of the few things that actually belongs to the individual shareholders.
I have a copy of the benefit letter that was sent from DOF to the coop. My name was listed as the Owner.
Can I claim the abatement is mine even though I’m no longer the shareholder.
The management said the abatement stays with the unit hence the new shareholder.
Incidentally the new shareholder would not be eligible to receive it by definition. Nor will they be next tax year because of sale date.
If this is correct, do you know of any legal precedent that we can refer to?
Coop bylaws makes no mention of a case like this.
Thank you for any advice you can give.
Can someone please tell me:
1. Who is responsible for the proper upkeep of the sidewalk in front of a brownstone (Brooklyn)—NYC or property owner?
2. What are the ramifications of/to an owner whose "... PROPERTY IS NOT CURRENTLY VALIDLY REGISTERED WITH HPD"?
I'm looking for knowledgeable answers, rather than opinions, please. Thank you.
Our co-op has a live in super for way over 20 yrs. for the last few yrs. he has been very lacked and sends the handyman in his place. A couple of times a shareholder will be knocking on his door, no answer. So I called him on his cell he comes out of his apt. and straight in front of us.
With new equipment and 85% shareholders have renovated their apts. he is not needed 24/7 if anything he should be on part time and be replaced by the handyman. My question is how do we get everyone on board to agree to sell his given apt. and hire an emergency company after 5PM-8PM since the record shows the hotline will instruct the shareholder what to do or wait until the super comes around at 8AM. FYI if he comes at night he smells from beer and saids don't call at night.
Here''s a conversation starter and food for thought... Con Ed is on a shut down frenzy and it's going to get worse!
As many are aware, all buildings need to be tested and inspected by a licensed professional, with certifications beginning whenever your specific community Board schedule mandates.
Many pre-war or war era buildings could never pass a pressure test if put to it, and if a line is suspect, they will pressure test it and shut it down.
The inspections right now are simple visual inspections followed by an ambient gas leak detector scan around all visible lines (my assumption is that within a couple short years they will amend the law to include a 5 year pressure test). Only if something is suspect does it become an issue. I was informed by one of our plumbers that Con Ed is wanting them to have special waist clipped detectors that are automatic and will contact Con Ed autonomously if ambient gas is detected. This can be a nightmare since it does not give the opportunity to resolve a simple issue before getting Con Ed involved.
Whats the solution? There isn't one that I know of, butt what I am doing in all my buildings is equipping the supers with personal gas leak detectors and performing constant in house inspections. preemptively replace anything that seems suspect and start making plans and budgets to replace individual lines.
Anyone else have any ideas, thoughts or preventative measures to suggest?
I have a verizon cell site on one of my buildings where they are wanting to convert to 5G. I am very skeptical about the RF bleed levels into the building and any exposure to my residents in the building. There seems to be too little known about the long term effects of exposure at various levels. FCC sidesteps the safety issues by allowing for signage and precautions on the roof or where ambient RF is, as a way of making what is otherwise not legally acceptable now acceptable and somehow safe.
I have requested from the carrier a complete RF report showing the levels in and out of the building. They agreed and now supplied me with this report which to me does not look as if I would want it in my home, but FCC says its safe with certain compliance mitigations, which is merely signage!
Here's my question: Since I am not an RF engineer, or an expert at reading these reports and only making my assessment based on my limited knowledge and experience, does anyone have or kn-ow of an engineer who can read the report, assess and evaluate the risk and make a recommendation as to whether I should permit or deny the upgrade application?
This is something that I believe effects many buildings, and Board Members and Managers should do whatever possible to not only ensure the safety of the residents, but to mitigate any risk or liability on our end.
