Earlier used in large shopping complexes and corporate business houses, intercoms are now becoming an essential part of everyday used specifically to have complete access and control on your residential building or business. Intercoms, an abbreviated form of intercommunicating devices, are systems that are primarily used to connect two distantly located individuals and establish communication system linking two different rooms.
At present, manufacturers are coming out with a wide variety of advanced intercom systems so as to attract customers. Interestingly, many of these systems are equipped with features that one can only imagine. Some of these systems are outlined below:
o Music Intercom Systems – Imagine a situation where all the members in the family can listen to music without the need of gathering at one single point or disturbing their routine activities. This is now possible with music intercom systems. These advanced devices provide you with the convenience of enjoying your favorite tunes, while answering your door and communicating with other members of the family. Interestingly, one need not even compromise with the sound quality as these devices are fitted with high-fidelity speakers that can generate a crisp and clear sound quality. On a whole, these advanced intercom systems can ably perform the role of a full-fledged music system, while ensuring your home security.
o Video Intercom Systems – These are one of most interesting and widely popular advanced intercom systems available in the market today. Often people tend to feel anxious when they have to open door to strangers. This happens particularly in situations when children are present all alone inside the home. A video intercom system helps you establish the identity of the person present on the other side of the door before granting access into the house. In other sense, this system provides you with an additional security blanket.
o Baby Monitoring Systems – These are another interesting variety of intercom systems that are recently gaining popularity. Also known as nanny intercoms, these baby monitoring systems are small walkie-talkie like systems fitted with an LCD monitor. Fitted at one corner of the bed/room, these devices allow you to stay connected with your children and monitor their activities from anywhere in the house. Also, these systems are fitted with certain advanced features such as high-fidelity speaker systems and temperature monitors so as to ensure an effective communication. The same systems can also be used when you need to take care of your elderly parents, in case they need any assistance.
One of the most salient features of advanced intercom systems is these devices can be effectively used as an integrated home security and access control solution, thereby providing a comprehensive and complete surveillance and protection. In fact, it is due to this feature that intercom systems are gaining immense popularity in the recent times. These intercom systems can be easily integrated with your existing infrastructure such as your remote-controlled gates, CCTVs, burglar alarms and movement detectors.
Another feature that is recently being incorporated into intercom systems is video/audio conferencing. In this, multiple intercom stations located in different rooms are connected with one another so that individuals can communicate with each other simultaneously. Also, one no longer has to worry about tangled wires lying everywhere on the floor.
These are compact, flexible and easy-to-use devices that operate using advanced wireless technology. As a result, one can control these advanced intercom systems even from any remote location. Another interesting fact is that advanced intercom systems can be operated both on electricity and batteries. Due to this, people no longer have to compromise on their home/personal security even during power failure. One more fact about these advanced intercom systems is that they are very much cost effective and are available in every budget range.
