Residential intercom systems give family members an easy way to communicate, especially for families in large or two-story homes. Family members who have mobility problems can use intercom systems instead of having to leave a room, and parents can use them to check on babies or small children.
Intercom systems allow people to communicate with each other throughout a home without having to track people down. Parents can use these systems to communicate with multiple children at once. Parents might also want to use an intercom system to check on a baby or young child; systems with video capabilities, in particular, can provide better functionality than traditional baby monitors. Intercom systems are also great for senior family members or others who have mobility issues. Instead of having to leave a room, these family members can instead press a button to request help or ask questions.
Intercom systems are also great for communicating with a visitor without having to go to or open the door. In addition, video intercom systems allow people to get a better view of a visitor than a peephole can provide. Some systems allow users to unlock the door by pushing a button, which makes it easy to allow guests into a home.
