Another great reason to get have an intercom system installed in your home is for your property value.

Intercom Systems & Access Control

3 Main types of intercom systems explained:

Wired Intercom Systems – a wired intercom system is installed with a wiring system threaded into the wall cavities, ideally done when a home or building is first constructed. Wired intercom systems generally have the highest quality signal of all the intercom systems, providing the best sound and visual quality due to the high quality, specialised wiring this type of system uses.

Carrier Current Intercom Systems – a carrier current intercom system uses a carrier current which is integrated into the electrical wiring of a building. With a carrier current system, the intercom signal is carried along with the electricity. While offering many of the same advantages of a hardwired system, the cost of this type of intercom system is generally lower than hardwired systems but it doesn't have as high a quality of sound, due to the shared nature of the wiring.

Wireless Intercom Systems – a wireless intercom system uses radio frequencies to transmit its signals. A wireless system is relativley easy to install, while still offering a wide range of expandable options. When opting for a wireless system it is important to determine the range to ensure it suitability to your needs and it is good to note that some wireless systems can experience interference problems with their signal, depending on the system you purchase.
