Your door is, by its definition, the gateway to your home or business. When security is an issue, leaving your door vulnerable to strangers is enough to make anyone insecure. By installing an intercom system, it protects you and your family from unnecessarily opening the door to potential dangers. Keep an eye and ear on your doorstep without ever having to expose yourself to uncomfortable situations by becoming your own digital doorman, and regulate exactly who and who doesn’t enter your home/business. You will never have to wonder who is at your door again.
How it Works
There are two different intercom systems: audio intercom systems and video intercom systems.
Audio intercom systems utilize a 2-way speaker system that allows you to speak to whoever is at your doorstep. Visitors will have to use an outdoor audio station in order to gain access to your home/business. This way, there will always be a doorbell that alerts you of visitors; no more unannounced visitors, no more surprises. Some higher models of the audio intercom system feature a lock/unlock ability, allowing you to open the door for visitors without having to go to your door yourself. Other features that audio intercoms offer are hands-free operation, modular form factor, or a simpler, easy-to-use handset form factor.
Using high-resolution video cameras, the video intercom system keeps a stern watch over your door’s entrance and adds another dimension to the audio intercom system. While audio intercoms are great, video intercoms are fool-proof and let you identify exactly who is knocking at your door. The camera operates on a 24-hour basis, regardless of the model, unless of course, you yourself choose to turn it off. With a visual image of visitors, you are able to definitively identify exactly who is at your doorstep and eliminate all traces of doubt. Video intercoms are coupled with the 2-way speaker systems of traditional intercoms, allowing you to talk to visitors as well.
Some higher-end systems offer built-in memory that snaps a picture of every person that rings the doorbell, attaching a timestamp to each snapshot. Another feature that video intercom systems may offer is the ability to lock/unlock your door remotely, allowing visitors to come in without going to your door. Other available features include night-vision cameras, hands-free operation, panning video cameras, emergency calls, and computer network integration. The newest feature that some models offer is the ability to be integrated with your smartphone/iPad/tablet, adding increased mobility in the remote control. Having a video intercom system guard your home or business adds a strong dimension of security and eliminates the worry that comes with opening the gateway to your residence.
