There are a huge variety of security systems that home and business owners can employ to keep their premises safe, but how do you know which home security solution is the best fit for your needs?
Our expert team at Castle Security share what we know about intercom systems, from what an intercom is, to what features they offer and how a system can benefit you.
What is an Intercom?
An intercom system is an electronic device that allows for two-way communication; this could be between a home or business owner and a visitor or client. Intercoms are popular in schools, hospitals, apartment buildings and office buildings with multiple businesses.
There are a variety of types of intercoms:
These intercoms are most commonly installed outside the building, usually at the door or outside a fence, to allow visitors or clients to communicate with a person inside. The person inside can then control whether a person can access the business or home.
Traditional intercoms are wired into the wall, often during construction or renovation, and can include a keypad to enter codes, which is handy for buildings with multiple apartments or businesses.
Wireless security systems are handy for when wires cannot be run, or for established houses, apartments and buildings. While wireless systems are restricted in how far the sender and receiver can be apart, they benefit the user as they allow for more points of contact than just outside to inside, you can have multiple points within or outside the house.
This is a popular option for many homes, as video intercoms allows homeowners to see who is visiting and enables easy two-way communication. Video intercoms are wired into your home to allow seamless transmission of images, and our more advanced systems can even store video, or zoom and pan the camera!
These household intercom systems allow for people within a home or business to communicate directly with one another, taking away the unpleasant yelling from room to room. For houses or businesses under construction or renovation, a wired system may be the best choice, while already established homes and businesses should look at wireless systems.
Benefits of Intercoms
The first benefit of intercom systems comes from the ability for the employee, homeowner, administrator or other authorized person to both speak to and potentially see the visitor without having to open any doors, providing higher security at important access points at your home or business.
For those looking to bring their home into the future, these smart home systems are a great investment.
