Intercom Systems

Save on intercom installation costs in minutes

Do you need to communicate with employees, customers or family members? If so, let us help you choose one of the many different intercom systems that are available. Whether you need something fairly simply for occasional use or an elaborate system with multiple purposes, we are sure to have a contractor in our network that specializes in installing the exact system you need.

Permanent vs. Portable System

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.

Uses for Intercom Systems

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:

  • Flats and private residences to alert occupants as to the identity of visitors
  • Factories and warehouses to page workers to come to a certain location
  • Office buildings to provide a means for workers on multiple floors to communicate with one another
  • Schools and hospitals so that individuals inside can summon others when needed
  • Sporting events and racetracks to call the action to spectators as it takes place
  • Rescue workers to allow them to direct traffic or make important announcements to the public
  • Concert halls and theatres to allow for better sound projection
  • Churches so that preachers can be heard by all members of the congregation

Major Benefits of Intercom Systems

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.

Features of Intercom Systems

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.

Intercom Costs

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.
