Buyers Guide for IP Intercoms

Which Intercom is Best for you? Here are the Pros and Cons.

These new intercom systems connect directly to the network or integrate with IP cameras. Powered by PoE, they are very easy to install. They are especially good for multi-building organizations since they connect wherever you have a network. They also open an electric lock (with additional relay) or the latest IP door access control readers creating a complete door control system. The video enabled door access control system provides complete control of your environment. Authorized people can gain access using their credentials or even using biometrics, while visitors can be monitored for controlled entry. These complete systems enhance your total security assuring a safe environment in this uncertain world.

When someone comes to the door, the visitor can push the call button which notifies a person at a computer. The control person can talk to the visitor and make a decision to grant entry or not. Here is an overview of the different systems available.

TVIP-IntercomPA

TVIP-IntercomPA:

Connects to the network and provides two-way audio. It connects to an electric lock or IP door access control reader. The system uses Talkmaster intercom software on your Windows computer to provide notification and two-way audio as well as remote door release. The intercom connects directly to the network and can be part of a central emergency alert system. Take a look at our network attached PA systems for more details about paging systems. This system does not provide as much protection as those that use video. Intercom systems start at about $495.

They are best used when you have other video surveillance cameras that are viewing the door.

TVIP-IntercomV:
