Intercom systems are an effective way of controlling access to your premises. They enable the user to accept or deny access when visitors arrive, and can be used both inside and outside the building. How do intercom systems work?

The most common type of intercom system consists of two parts – a handset located at the entry point of the building and a receiver located inside. When visitors press the call button on the outside handset, this triggers an audio signal in the internal receiver, alerting those inside to the presence of a visitor. The user then has the option of accepting or denying access by pressing either ‘talk’ or ‘unlock’ buttons.

Intercom systems can also be integrated with automatic door openers, allowing for hands-free access. This is especially useful for businesses where frequent visitors are expected and the user does not need to manually unlock the door each time.

The Benefits of Intercom Systems

Intercom systems are a great way to increase security and convenience at home or in the workplace. Here at Cycad Security, we provide a range of intercom systems that offer a variety of benefits:

  • Enhanced security as visitors have to be identified before entry is granted
  • Easier access control with remote unlocking options available
  • Ability to distinguish between authorised staff and visitors
  • Recording capabilities for enhanced monitoring and evidence gathering
  • Improved communication with audio, video and messaging systems available
  • Increased convenience with handsfree door release systems

Different Types of Intercom Systems

The most basic type of intercom system is a simple two-way audio system, which allows the user to speak with a person at the door or gate, as well as open and close it remotely. This type of system is usually ideal for residential properties, allowing homeowners to grant access to visitors without having to physically go to the entrance.

For larger buildings such as commercial premises, more sophisticated intercom systems are available. These may include video entry systems, allowing the user to see who is at the door before granting access. Access control systems can also be incorporated into an intercom system, giving users the ability to manage and restrict certain types of access.
