Intercom systems are fantastic ways to add additional layers of protection and security to your home. But like almost all mechanical objects, hardwired intercom panels can degrade over time – and in these moments, you may be unsure about what to do with them! The experts at Nonstop Locksmith regularly provide custom tailored hardwired intercom panels for home or business owners looking to implement access control and security in their property – in the specific way you need. Replacement and upgrading hardwired intercom panels is always the best course of action – but here’s a brief guide to things that you can do when dealing with an old or degraded pre-existing hardwired intercom panel at your property.
Just Remove It
You can try to remove hardwired intercom panels – but this might be difficult. You first need to figure out what type of system you have. If there’s no plug, you will need to shut off the power to the intercom from your circuit breaker. Then, for safety’s sake, verify that no power is actively running to the intercom, then remove the screws that are mounting it in. You will likely see wires running into the wall from the rear of the system. Disconnect these wires (you might have to cut them) and cover the caps with wire connectors. You will then need to close up the hole with drywall or putty, which can be a long arduous process.
You can try to hide an intercom system behind a plant, picture, furniture, bookcase, or other type of decor or decoration. Depending on the level of skill used for this operation it will turn out better or worse – but the likelihood is that trying to hide a hardwire intercom panel won’t work that well, as they are bulky and unique looking items when they are very old.
