Advantages of having a Built-In Intercom System

Communication

Using the intercom for your home is not only used to communicate between rooms but also answer the door. There are many Intercom Systems that offer All Broadcast communication throughout the home but only selective few offer the convenience of Selective Intercom or Automatic Selective Intercom for private communication. Meaning that you can either call a specific room or the system automatically goes into a private communication. It will always depend on what is right for the user of the intercom.

Monitoring

Using the Monitor on your Built-In Intercom System is a great way to keep in touch with your children. The convenience of being able to select rooms to monitor or multiple rooms to monitor are available with most systems. Monitoring your child when they are sleeping or just playing in the room is an extra comfort that we all want.

Taking Care of your parents

We all dislike the thought of your parents getting old. But it’s a hard fact of life that we all have to face. Especially when your parents or parent is not able to get up and around very easily or we are taking care of them. The Monitor feature on a Built-In Home Intercom System can be used to monitor your parent’s room if they need assistance.

Door Intercom

That extra security sure adds to that safe feeling for all of us. The door intercom feature is available on most intercoms. This feature is a great way to communication to who ever is at the front door. How many times have you felt uncomfortable about opening the door to a stranger?

Music Distribution

When we build our new homes we look at it as an investment and how easy will it be to sell. Music distribution built into your home can increase your value to your home.
But there are many systems to choose and we all trust the installer or builder to tell us what is best. But be careful, the cost of these systems can get out of control and come with more features than you will ever use. With Home Intercom systems these features are kept to minimum which make the systems more affordable to purchase.

Privacy

Some systems allow you to put your room station into private. This will not allow anyone to monitor your room without your knowledge. This is a great feature to have on your system especially when your child or children get older.

Remote Control

There are Home Intercom Systems available with remote controls. These remotes usually can control the basic functions. But there are remote controls that you can purchase that control the intercom functions too. These remotes will allow you to communicate to the door or unlock the door without getting out of you chair. These remotes will also allow you to communicate to any room station in the home. It’s a convenience that we all love.

Hand Held Players

Everyone one is getting into the Ipod or mp3 hand held players. Even your car has the option to plug in your iPod. Most Home Intercom Systems now have this option. But some are more elaborate than others. Most systems are dedicated only to iPod but some are not. Today when you purchase a cell phone and you have the option to have a mp3 player. Amazing but most hand held devices will have mp3 players and you want your equipment to be universal.
