When you’re thinking about how to install an intercom system in an office, there are a range of factors to consider. Should you opt for a wireless intercom system? And what about the option to have a video intercom system so you’ll always know who’s trying to gain access? We’ll explain the key things to consider in this blog post. 

First thing’s first, you’re probably looking for a reliable way to monitor who’s entering a building. Having an intercom system also provides a useful way for visitors to speak to someone on arrival and be signposted efficiently, giving them a better first impression of your organisation. 

Having an office intercom system in place also serves as a deterrent for anyone who shouldn’t be entering, as they increase awareness that doors are monitored and entry needs to be authorised. 

What to consider when choosing a commercial intercom system

Firstly, think about the benefits of installing a video intercom system. While an audio intercom system may cover the basics, newer video technology presents a range of advantages. Being able to see who is trying to gain entry gives your business increased security, ensuring that your team and premises are protected. A video intercom system works well in local authority and health care settings, and are great for businesses that need a more secure commercial intercom system too.

Another option is to go for a wireless intercom system, where you don’t require the system to be hardwired in. These are more cost effective and simpler to install and work off a 4G/5G signal. Vistec Systems can visit the site and ensure a wireless intercom system would be right for your business.
