IP intercoms

There are no limits to the number of units incorporated into the system and no limits when it comes to distance travel between individual systems when using an IP network. This means they are tremendously adaptable and can be used on large flats, apartment blocks or single apartment residence.

They can also be used on large commercial applications such as schools, hospitals and office blocks. Classic features to the system include a seven in touch screen mounted to the wall with a LCD built in monitor using an Android operation. They have entre panels designed to be vandal resistant available in a number of different finishes to blend in with the design of the building they are installed in.

Features include:

Wireless intercoms

When a caller comes to visit they show up at the main entrance. He or she will then call the portable handset located inside the home or office and announce their presence via a 2-way conversation.

The portable handset will remotely be able to operate a maximum of 16 auto systems wirelessly controlling each system and can identify sounds at the entrance door. They can be used to check to see if the lights are on or off, view entrances to see if doors are open or closed all through the handset monitor screen and you are able to talk with another handset.

Wireless versus wired intercoms

Most electricians will prefer a wired intercom set up for areas such as main gates as they have a proven track record for reliability. A wireless set up does provide a very easy installation but there are considerations to take into account.

Multi way intercoms

This design is perfect for gated residential communities and apartment blocks. Commonly used are modular systems, which can be tailor, made to suit your specific needs. They can look after 30 or more properties with call button services to each apartment allowing each occupier to have three handsets per household. This can then be upgraded to incorporate keypads and video links.

GSM intercom systems

There is currently on the market two kinds of GSM Intercom systems.

The first being a system that permits mobile phone calls being received from the gate usually from a call house and then rerouted to your mobile if there is no answer at the gate.

The second is a remote, which can store 200 telephone numbers in their memory caller ID. This means that someone who calls the gate who has their number stored on the system it recognises it and lets you in automatically. This is perfect for communal gates such as marinas, leisure centres and access to commercial premises when it’s out of business hours.
