An intercom is a stand-alone voice communications system commonly used in apartment buildings or office complexes and on a smaller scale used in homes.
Intercom systems provide communication from an entry point, or doorstation, to an internal handset. Externally they can be used to screen prospective visitors from outside a point of entry and internally they can be used to ease communications between rooms or offices. They can also double as public announcement systems.
Phone Entry Intercoms
Connecting directly to the phone lines in a building, these systems allow residents to be called via their phone line. Phone entry systems can be configured to call internal PBX phones, or dial externally to allow intercoms to be answered remotely via standard phone lines or GSM mobiles.
IP and VoIP Connectivity
Using a local area network (LAN), internet protocol (IP) intercom systems distribute audio and video signals throughout an apartment building or office providing flexibility and options. IP systems can be integrated with VoIP systems and digital PABX systems, extension trunking over the Internet and intercom call logging/reporting.
Emergency Help Monitoring
Your system can be designed to include emergency help points, information lines and after hour access points. These Emergency help points can be configured to call dedicated operators, or after hours contacts depending on your particular needs.
