Technology continues to afford us more and more options around our ability to communicate safely and comfortably from inside an apartment. Whether we live in a small place or large, live alone or with a family or friends, we all have some level of interest and need around our ability to communicate from within our apartment.
There are also some obvious safety benefits to using modern communication technology for apartments as well.
When considering enhanced intercom communicaiton for your apartment, you’ll want to consider three main options:
1. Wireless: Is your apartment set up best for a wireless system, based on the options you have available for a wired system, the distance the communication needs to travel, etc.
2. Wired: Wired systems may be less expensive, particularly if you have the opportunity to install them during new construction. If you have a specific need, and are able to use a wired system, this may be a better option. But if your needs are more flexible, a wireless option will afford you the flexibility you may desire.
3. Video intercoms: These are becoming the most popular options, and allow you to communicate both with voice and video. This adds a level of security and comfort many find desirable. Not all apartments are designed in a way that will allow them, but for those who do, this may be a worth consideration. Another advantage of these systems is they may allow for remote monitoring as well.
When considering your options for intercom communication, you’ll want to assess your primary goals, your budget, your building and space requirements – and then make the best decision based on the available options.
