Intercom systems fall into two basic categories: portable and permanent. Portable units are those that can be moved around from one location to another and are often used at sporting events or by disaster relief workers. Permanent systems are mounted to an existing structure and are ideal for schools, factories, private residences and performing arts theatres. Some businesses like to have a permanent system for everyday use along with a portable one that can be used in case of an emergency.
The number of ways an intercom system can be used is as endless as the different models that are available. A few of the places these systems are commonly used include:
People can sometimes have difficulty hearing important information when they are in large crowds. Intercom systems make it easy for everyone to hear information because it can be broadcast along a wide area. These systems also allow workers to be paged when needed. This saves time because they do not have to be tracked down on foot in order to deliver a message. It’s usually very easy to modify or upgrade an intercom system whenever technology improves or the needs of a home or business changes. Properly installed systems can be expected to last for years with few repairs being needed.
Since intercom systems are so diverse, the number of features they can contain is nearly limitless. Some models may come equipped with a camera, and this is often the case with units that are being used for security purposes. They can also be equipped with headsets or belt packs that make hands-free speaking easier to accomplish. A battery backup could be added in order to make an intercom system usable during a power outage. Wireless systems are also available, and these have an added advantage in that they are easier to install than other types of intercoms.
The price of intercom systems vary a great deal based upon what they are being used for, as residential units are typically less expensive than commercial ones. Typically intercom costs are higher when they are used to cover a large area since more wiring is involved in their installation. The addition of special features such a security cameras or wireless capability can also increase the cost. Some systems are so complex that special training might be required in order to use them. When this is the case, contractors sometimes provide this training for their customers; however, there could be an additional charge for this service.
Yes, intercom systems can easily be placed in the home, and can be especially nice in multi-story structures where family members need to communicate with others who are on different levels.
The broadcast area, number of users and purpose for the system are all things to take into consideration.
Home intercom systems are primarily used for ease of communication and to monitor specific areas of the home. They can also be used to communicate with people knocking at the door, either by voice or with voice and video.
The cost of an intercom system will depend on the number of receivers and the complexity of the installation. On average, a basic installation will cost £450, with more complicated installations costing £1,000 or more.
Many wireless systems can cover a range of up to .3 kilometres. A system with this range could also provide communication for up to four rooms in your home.
