An intercom (intercommunication device), talkback or door phone is a stand-alone voice communications system for use within a building or small collection of buildings. Its a two-way communication electronic device that contains circuitry for the purpose of transmitting and receiving audio and/or video transmissions.
Video door-phone (also known as video door entry or video intercom) is a stand-alone intercom system used to manage calls made at the entrance to a building (residential complex, detached family home, workplace, etc.) with access controlled by audiovisual communication between the inside and outside.
Intercom allows a person speaking into a microphone to be heard on a speaker by people in a different room or area.
Intercom solutions have long outgrown the image of the single-line, single-button door buzzer panel. In a wide range of communication and building management settings, intercom is emerging as the future central hub technology that brings together audio and video communication.
Intercoms come in a variety of styles. Some are extremely easy to use while others can be very complicated. There are audio intercoms, video intercoms, integratable and multi-tenant intercoms.
Intercom devices are available in various styles and designs. Some of the designs are simple while others are not. Leaving aside the various designs features, there are intercom devices specially designed for specific functionalities.
Different types of intercom security systems:
In applications where wires cannot be run, a wireless system is used.
Wired Intercom Systems
A wired system can give you a little more privacy and eliminate possible interference from neighboring systems.
Typically includes a unit that has a camera, speaker, and a push button going to an entrance door, and an internal monitor unit that can communicate with the entrance unit.
A visitor presses the correct button for the apartment they want to speak to, and the tenant can speak back and then press a button to unlock the door.
Security intercom systems
Security intercom systems are used to provide voice communications between two or more locations for security purposes. Security intercom systems are frequently used between a locked building entrance door and a constantly attended location in the building.
A simple security intercom system consists of one “Master Station” and one “Sub-Station”. The Master Station is typically located at the point inside the building where communications is to be received. The Sub-Station is typically located at the point where the communication is to be originated.
