The most obvious advantage to installing an intercom system is that you can monitor who enters your home. You get to see or talk in some cases both, with the person asking to enter your premises before you actually grant them access.
But that is not all! There are a number of other advantages to installing intercoms at not just your home, but also business– especially if you are willing to spend a few extra bucks on a model that supports video!
Screen Visitors Before Permitting Access: If you wish to screen visitors before letting them into your premises, an intercom system will serve the purpose.
Burglars with nefarious goals are bound to think twice and be deterred if they know you have an intercom system and that they will need to identify themselves before they can actually enter your building. The very thought of having their faces on camera will make them antsy and uncomfortable.
Ease of Communication: If you run a business with your employees spread over a larger area, you will benefit immensely by installing intercoms with audio and video.
Your employees will no longer have to leave their desk to communicate with another employee on the other side of the building.
An intercom system allows people to easily communicate and learn what they need to know in a fraction of a few minutes without having to go half way across the building or having to wait for an email reply.
Restricts Access to Authorized Personnel: Many small to medium size businesses have certain areas cordoned off where only authorized personnel are allowed entry. Card and key security system are a great addition but have vulnerabilities.
A video intercom on the other hand, requires visual identification and hence will keep the secure area safe from prying eyes.
Emergency Call Points: Large campuses and commercial establishments will benefit from having intercoms installed. This is particularly useful in erecting emergency call points in areas where after-hours activity is quite common.
This will ease the nerves of people who work on the campus after hours or someone who has stayed back on an extended shift. Parking lots, walkways, and common areas can be equipped with emergency call points using an existing intercom system.
These helpful communication tools come in varying sizes and shapes but are clearly marked with bright colors and lights to let people know that help is available at the press of a button.
Intercoms allow you an easy and quick way to monitor your property and also all entry points. It also allows you to stay in control of who has access to your property or facility.
