About Video Intercoms

A video intercom is essentially a two way communication system. It connects one unit which is outside the door to a display unit inside your home. This particular system has four parts- the camera, a button, a speaker and a monitor. When any visitor comes up to your door, they have to push the button on the outer unit.

The person inside can then communicate with that person via video.If required, they can ask for identification before deciding whether they want to open up the door for the person. This simple system can help prevent many problems such as thefts, assaults etc.
