Managing entry with a door intercom system

See, talk to and validate visitors to your premises

Intercom systems enable businesses with busy reception areas or secure access points to communicate with visitors before allowing them to step into the building.


What are the main types of intercom systems?

Audio entry systems

An IP intercom system (intercom phone) delivers two-way audio communication between an operator and a visitor, who must press a call button installed near a door to initiate the entry request. The intercom is typically connected to the business’s own IP network, so the call can be answered from a desk phone, computer or headset.

Video entry systems

A video door entry system (or video door phone) works in the same way as an audio entry system, but also features a video intercom, adding the benefit of being able to visually verify who’s there. Video footage can be viewed before access is granted or denied using an entry monitor, handset or computer.

As well as being an additional layer of security, the use of an intercom phone system or video door intercom system provides added convenience for your staff and helps leave a professional impression on your visitors themselves.

Secure access for staff

Most door entry systems and intercoms can be integrated with access control technologies, which can be used to grant entry to staff and other authorised personnel but require external visitors to request access via a door intercom. This combination of staff and visitor management means everyone with authority to access the building can be accounted for.
