Intercom systems aren’t only found in commercial buildings—they’re now commonly installed in residential homes, too. Some of the systems come with different features—including cameras and alarms—making them a helpful addition to any home. Here are a few of the ways an intercom can be beneficial to your family.
Feel More Secure
With an intercom system, you never have to worry about opening the front door to a stranger; you can see who has dropped by no matter what room of the house you’re in. An intercom monitor is installed outside of your front door, which allows you to screen visitors before you decide if they should enter. This isn’t just a convenience—it’s a safety improvement as well.
Monitor Your Children
Intercoms can serve as excellent baby and child monitors. They can be installed in any room in the home, so you can always be aware of your children’s activities. Kids also feel more secure knowing they can speak to you no matter where you are in the house, and you have peace of mind knowing they’re safe.
Play Music Throughout the House
One of the more enjoyable features of a home intercom system is that it allows you to play music or podcasts in any room of your home. This is great for parties or entertaining, and it’s even fun for times that you’re hanging around the house or you need some “cleaning music” to get you in the mood.
