Improve Building Communication by Installing the Intercom

There are different types of intercom and its dependent subsystems. The basic categorization varies according to the scale of different projects. There are commercial, infrastructural and residential types of intercom systems. Most of the large scale projects involve video as well as the audio element. The inclusion of video element ensures an increased level of visual verification for the caller.

It is important for you to know that intercom systems are not wired in conjunction with the various other communication systems including telephone and business announcement systems. Our professionally trained staff will ensure that the best intercom design solution is provided to your facility that meets all your requirements.

Requirements for an Effective Intercom Design

Structure Lightning Protectors

There are various key elements that should be kept under consideration when setting up these intercom systems. The door stations for these intercoms need to be located at all the external entry points. These stations must provide the means to forward the request to the operators of the facility. This needs to be done right after the ID verification of the individual. These points can also work well as the assistance points in the facility’s parking area.

Furthermore, these intercom systems need proper integration with the barrier or door they are controlling. This will require the involvement of a relay trigger for the purpose of opening a door lock or for raising a designated barrier to allow vehicles accessing or entering the premises.

Our engineers make sure that all the door stations have direct contact with the base station when installing intercom systems but it heavily relies on the system topology. In a commercial or residential setup, the communication configuration is either simplex or duplex. The duplex configuration works just like a telephone call while in a simplex configuration only one person can communicate at a time.

CCTV Intercom Design

There are more IP solutions present with advanced level complications but they are mandatory for different dedicated networks. These solutions can be distributed over regular telephone systems that exist in a commercial building. Our engineers can also integrate these solutions with the current intelligent building system. This integration ensures that the residents and tenants have a one-stop solution for building security and intercom systems.

Our engineers can further add to the complexity of the system and activate the intercom’s call function as well. It involves a CCTV camera to record and monitor the misdemeanors. Again the system can be installed in any environment but is more popular with the infrastructural setups.

Types of Intercoms Solution

Intercom System

Hard-Wired Units

The hardwired units are one of the most common types of intercom systems. These are the simplest, and suitable for most of the small scale projects and facilities. Due to the fact that these systems are installed within the walls, we recommend installing them during the construction stage of your property or facility. These systems are slightly expensive as compared to the other types but they are far more resilient as well.

With most of the wired technology, the audio signal is excellent and similar is the case with wired intercom. This means that the communication that will take place between the individuals will be extremely clear.

Carrier Current Units

Carrier current units are less expensive as compared to the hard-wired units. These units are integrated within the electrical systems of a building and for this reason; the intercom systems system runs on electricity to establish communication with an individual on the other side. The biggest advantage of installing this unit is the cost and these units are way easier to install and maintain too.

Wireless Units

The wireless units don’t use the same types of radio frequencies as the previous listed two units do. The good thing is that these units are even less expensive than the carrier current units. Another great advantage of these units is that you don’t have to install them. They can be brought into use straight out of the box.
These units are powered by batteries and these batteries tend to run for a long time. The range of wireless units is the deciding factor. Some of the units also come with portable receivers and these devices enable you to run your intercom from various locations. The only issue that comes with these units is that the communication signal tends to develop interferences with the passage time. This means that with an old wireless intercom you will experience signal interruptions.

Auto Gate Entry Unit

This unit is useful for high rise buildings and complex facilities because you don’t need to be physically present at the door to open or close it for the visitor. These units have a camera installed and with it, you are able to see who is at the gate. There is a large display on the intercom as well for you to see your visitor and decide whether to open the gate or not.
