2N, a provider of internet-enabled intercoms and access control systems, has launched an augmented reality app, 2N AppeAR, that allows architects, engineers, integrators and installers to see how the company’s products would look if incorporated into their projects.

For every 2N product, 2N AppeAR provides detailed 3D models, technical information, useful videos and the option to view them disassembled. It also enables ‘virtual installation’ so that architects and installers can ensure that the 2N product they have chosen is the right fit for their project. They simply point their phone at the place they are considering installing the device and an augmented reality image of it appears on the screen as if it were in the room. They can then evaluate the products for size, shape and positioning, as well as trying out different colour variations.

“Access control only amounts to about 0.1% of the total cost of a building’s construction, but there is a growing understanding of its importance – in terms of aesthetics as well as security,” said Michael Nicholson, Business Development Manager for the UK & Ireland at 2N.

“Our customers care about great design because beautiful devices enhance the value of their projects. Understandably, they therefore want to be able to see how the products will actually look. 2N AppeAR means that they no longer have to imagine our solutions. Now, they can visualise them.”
