Intercom systems can offer a telephone or video communication option. Facilities may opt for telephone communications if inter-office/room-to-room configurations require a basic but extensive configuration. Hands-free answer features are available, as well as an easy disconnect option for any particular station. Hospitals, schools and offices find telephone systems to help speed daily interactions of all kinds.
Video intercom systems provide the same features of a telephone system but add a visual communication element that can enhance security. A visual identification of a building guest can create a much more security environment. Video intercom systems are ideal for warehouse access systems and security-aware office buildings.
