Residential intercom systems are commonly fitted at apartment buildings and gated communities. However, the right intercom system not only adds another level of security to your home, it can also make your home’s security more user-friendly.
The ability to speak or/and see the visitor before you open your front door adds a huge sense of security to a home, especially for those who are elderly or who live alone.
An intercom system with video capability also serves as a deterrent to criminals and can confirm identities when audio is confusing or difficult to distinguish.
Comfort & Convenience
Convenience is one of the more popular reasons to invest in a home intercom system. Having the ability to unlock your door from within your home, and to speak to and see a visitor without having to open the door first, makes life a whole lot easier.
An intercom system is particularly beneficial where mobility issues make it difficult to respond to a knock at the door, or at large properties where going to the front gate is a mission.
In recent years, the video function of an intercom system has become popular for use inside the home as well. It is commonly used to keep an eye on the kids or anyone who is convalescing, and also saves time tramping up and down staircases.
