Intercom systems are implemented to allow communications from various locations in a building or secured area to a control center. For example, if someone is attempting to gain access to a secured area without access control, or if access control is present and his/her card was lost or forgotten, the individual could activate the intercom system to the central control center to request entry. Intercom systems provide two-way communications between the control and remote stations. Intercoms can also provide video if required. Systems are IP based and can be wireless deployments as well.
SWI has the ability to custom design and manufacture almost any type of intercom stanchion desired. Indoor or outdoor, stainless steel or lexan, we can provide the housing to perfectly match your existing décor.
When protecting a facility entrance, consider a system that is user friendly to visitors and vendors who must enter areas protected by card access security systems. Some systems provides a wide range of entry options with either audio-only or audiovisual identification of a visitor. When a person presses the button on the audio/video entry system, the doorbell rings and the video monitor provides a clear, bright image of who is at your door. Some cameras can be moved horizontally or vertically for a better view. Once the visitor has been approved, a door release button can be pressed to let the visitor in. This not only improves security, but it is also adds real convenience to your access control system.
