Intercom systems have been around since the 1930s, but only until recently have they been developed for use in the common household.
Video intercom systems allow you to preview the guest at the door from the safety of your living room. Modern systems have a 130 ° panoramic view that provide sharp and crisp images even in low light conditions. Sound systems provide crystal clear voice quality allowing you a hands-free communication with the visitor. Some intercom systems can be programmed to integrate door opening into its functionality.
There is no need to worry that your video intercom system will be an eyesore. Most manufacturers integrate their systems into the door frame itself with a modern, sleek look cased in aluminium. Both indoor and outdoor stations are clean, simple, easy and intuitive to use.
The development of the intercom system is a technology ahead of its time. Most of the integrated circuits and microprocessors introduced in intercom systems later evolved into what became known as today’s mobile phones. Many of a mobile phone’s functions have been in intercom systems for decades
Intercoms are a multimedia all-rounder nowadays. Almost all systems supporting standard features such as “Ringing”, “Talk” and “Open Door”. In addition, most offer modern facilities such as Full-duplex operation for best voice quality (speak and listen simultaneously), touch control, color video in HD-quality, real sound ringtones, voice memo or even an image memory for video systems.
Of course, modern systems can also be integrated into a computer network. This allows you to integrate the images received into your PC or even on your Internet-enabled TV for recording.
