Intercom System Installation and Maintenance
If you have ever stood outside an apartment building gate and had to punch in a number into a metal box, you have used an intercom. An intercom is a system of communication used in a single building or throughout a small collection of buildings, independent of the public telephone network. Most modern intercom systems can be connected to home telephones or wireless cell phones and even door latches and locks. Apartments, hotels, and schools use an intercom system for security purposes using a multi-tone, multi-signal system. You can even connect your calls to your music player when you need to put a caller on hold. This is more professional than letting the intercom ring and ring.
Current intercom systems come in hardwired and wireless varieties. Both can be connected to an existing wiring scheme or layout for added convenience. In this way, your home is ensured to have the foundation for an intercom system should you ever want one. Wireless intercoms are even better, as they are portable and can often transmit up to 1,000 feet from the master or main intercom station, which is usually installed in your home or outside, if the work site is an apartment or business.
B.K. Electric Services has installed many intercom systems, and in most cases, without adding new wires or seriously modifying older ones. Our team has worked with various intercom models, including those designed and manufactured by Quantometrix, Tektone, and Mircom. Many of these models have included video cameras for added security. All of our clients were consulted at every step of the project, ensuring their complete and honest satisfaction.
