How Does a Home Intercom System Work?

Intercom system

Home intercom systems are not only convenient, but they also add an extra layer of security to your home and increase the safety of your family members.

A two-way communication device that allows you to see who is outside your home without opening the front door, answer the door remotely using your smart device and see who has been visiting your home while you are not there.

How Does it Work?

Home intercom systems come in a variety of configurations, power sources, and features. However, the overall concept is the same: a person speaking into a microphone or in front of a camera can be heard and/or seen by another person in another room or on a smart device.

Home Intercom Components

An Intercom system in Pinecrest is made up of several components including a base station, which is the central control point of the home intercom system. This can be a physical device or a smart app that is accessed through a smart device and stored in the cloud. Intercom stations, which include a camera and microphone for two-way communication, are also included.

This is the section of the intercom that is usually installed outside your front door, gate, or whenever you have visitors. Another intercom station may be installed inside your home to communicate with visitors and allow them access, but some systems now allow you to do this from your smart device that enables complete remote management of your home intercom and visitors.

Home Intercom System Communication

To hear or see the visitor on the other side of the door, the intercom stations will transmit voice and/or video image data to the other receiving intercom station via wires or wirelessly (via a wifi connection) via the base station.

Integration of the Locking System

If your home intercom system is linked to your locking mechanism, you will be able to open gates and doors for visitors with the touch of a button or a tap on a smart device. This works by activating an electronic relay inside your home’s intercom, which sends a signal to the door or gate releasing mechanism, thereby unlocking the entryway.
