Currently, we are living in a world that is fast-paced and has many modern amenities, thanks to constantly advancing technology. Among the vast range of security products on the market today, intercoms are often forgotten even though they provide a simple low-cost access solution. They are an invaluable security measure for many different types of buildings, both commercial and residential.
Due to the many benefits of the intercom system, more people are starting to consider installing them at both residential and business properties. Depending on your needs and budget, you can install a wired intercom system or a wireless one, both of which are capable of fulfilling your requirements. Whichever system you choose, when installing an intercom device you will be getting more than the money’s worth. To help you understand just how good these systems are EA Group have put together a list of the advantages of using them.
When you install an intercom system you automatically take the security of your property to the next level. Detection and verification of guests, whether they are of the welcome or unwanted variety, is imperative. It can be incredibly dangerous when you answer the door to a stranger and having an intercom system will allow you to speak to the visitor before breaking your security barrier. You can then decide whether you want to open the door or not which can prevent dangerous incidents of forced entry from people that you don’t know.
Traditionally, intercom systems have been used to easily communicate with people inside buildings. Whether they are used in a block of flats or to get into a business property they allow you to communicate with your visitor before they enter the building. Being a two-way communication device, intercoms don’t only allow you to speak to the person trying to get into your property but, it also allows them to speak back to you too.
When you have an intercom system, it requires anyone who wants to enter a building to identify themselves. You will find that this instantly deters criminals or unauthorised people from attempting to enter your property, which in turn, will hopefully make it a much safer place.
It is becoming more and more difficult to find cheap home/building insurance cover. Once you have installed a professional intercom system you may find that you can get a better deal. Some insurance providers recognise the importance of this added security barrier and most of them would be willing to lower your annual premiums.
Lots of people don’t think about using an intercom system for restricting access, especially in commercial properties, but it works really well. Key or card security systems have their vulnerabilities, the main one being that the key/card can get lost or stolen. Using an intercom system instead, where visual or verbal identification can be made, will help keep the area safe and secure from anyone who isn’t authorised for access.
