Here at Nonstop Locksmith, we specialize in the installation of audio and video intercom systems. Here’s a guide to the various differences between different varieties of audio and video intercom systems so that you can educate yourself and determine what exact type of audio or video intercom would serve your residential or commercial security needs with the most efficacy.
What’s Better, Black & White, or Color Picture?
Before you purchase a video intercom consider whether you want black and white or color picture. We recommend black and white video intercoms for offices, and color picture video intercoms for residential applications. You will also want to consider getting a video intercom with a style that suits the interior of your home; tons of different makes, models, finishes, colors, and aesthetics are possible.
Are Audio / Video Intercom Handsets a Necessity?
After you’ve examined the range of different intercom options you might start considering if you want one with a handset. Handsets are great if you want to be notified if a guest arrives when you’re outside your door, or even out of your home or office. Video intercoms with no handset are uniform, convenient and very modern. There are many touchscreen models available that give you all the maximum convenience that future technology affords.
The size of CRT or cathode ray tubes range from 3.5, 5, 7, and even up to 10.2 inches. Considering the various available features, it’s essential that you measure what area you’re looking to have your intercom installed at. This is essential because you want to make sure that you have enough room to install the device. Large displays allow you to view a greater depth of field and more images, but their application still ranges on whether you have enough room for their installation at your residential or commercial location.
Choosing Intercom Devices
Here at Nonstop Locksmith we tend to favor medium to small CRT size video intercoms with touchscreens. Keeping that in mind, every intercom can serve different needs depending on their location of installation, so it’s essential to ask one of Nonstop Locksmith’s expert intercom installers what sort of device they would recommend.
