Home Intercom Systems Notes

1 – Can I install a hardwired intercom into an existing double-storey home?

Several cables need to be run for a hardwired intercom security system.

Installing concealed wiring in an existing two storey home can be difficult but not impossible. It depends on a number of things including:

  • Your desired location for the room station(s). Typically you would have one on the ground floor near the kitchen or family room and a second unit upstairs.
  • Your homes construction type (solid brick, tin roof, flat roof etc)
  • Your willingness to compromise on the final location of the equipment (within reason)
  • Consider one of the wireless options or book a free no-obligation home inspection to see if it’s possible.

Please contact us to discuss your situation – we’re happy to help.

2 – What do I need to consider before choosing a video intercom system

The door station should be located so the visitor can press the call button while standing directly in front of your entry door. If the door station is a step or two away from your door, the visitor won’t be visible when you check your room station monitor – after he presses the button he will walk back to the door ready for you to open it!

The best way to achieve this is to mount the intercom at right angles to your door.

If your home does not have a wall at right angles to your front door the door station can be mounted on a right-angle bracket. Another option is to consider a voice-only intercom.

In the photo below, the camera doorbell unit is about waist-high. This is impracticalities are obvious for both the visitor and the home owner. A better solution would be to mount the door station on a pole just behind the fence. A mounting height of around 150-160 centimetres is ideal.

Home Intercom Systems with Door Release

Most intercom systems have ‘door release’ button. If an electric lock is installed on the front gate you can press the door release button and let a visitor in without having to go outside and manually open the gate.

It’s important to add a code pad or swipe card system or key over-ride to the front gate to allow the homeowner access through the front gate if no one is home to push the door release button.

If you’re planning to add remote release function to an entry gate, contact us to discuss the best option for your situation.

7 Reasons Why Every Home Needs a Home Intercom System

1 – Identification

You can see and speak to a caller at your entry door before opening it.

2 – Peace of Mind

Is the person who they say they are? Why are they calling? Can the call be handled from behind the safety of a locked front door?

3 – Security

No-one in your family should ever open the door without knowing who is there.

4 – Record Keeping

A video intercom can record the entire conversation, both video and audio.

5 – Check what’s happening outside

Push the ‘Monitor’ button on your intercom from inside and immediately see and hear what’s happening at the entry area – even if the doorbell hasn’t been pressed.

Handy if you think you heard something outside.

 

6 – Deter Intruders

Most video intercoms take a snap-shot of the visitor when they push the doorbell and stores it in memory.

See if you missed any visitors while you were out.

Great deterrent – an intruder will generally ring the doorbell to see if you’re home before attempting a break-in.

7 – Never miss a visitor

Some video intercoms call your mobile phone. You can see and talk to a caller from anywhere in the world!

8 – They’re More Affordable Than Ever

Video intercoms are relatively cheap compared to a year ago.

The first video intercoms were thousands of dollars only a few years ago.

9 – Quick installation

Several wireless video intercom and voice-only intercom models are available – no messy wires, quick installation, long battery life
