4 Modern-Day Uses for Home Intercom Systems
You may have your phone with you most of the time, but even with the instant access to texts and calls, intercom systems still provide a lot of uses for modern homes.
Professionals can install intercom systems in many different rooms of the home. The installation of an intercom system comes with many benefits that go beyond the cell phone you already have. Learn about the intercom benefits and how your family will make daily use out of the technology.1. House Dead Zones
In many homes, you may find there are areas where cell phones go dead. Service becomes inaccessible and you cannot send out texts or calls. Examples may include walk-in closets, basements, or finished attics. Some rooms may have poor service, which delays texts messages and calls.
To ensure constant communication, you could install an intercom. For example, if you are doing laundry in the basement, the intercom may be used to call up to the house for any dirty laundry. If you have a finished basement, the intercom could be used to call down when dinner is ready.
The intercom could be hardwired into the home or rely on FM transmitter technology to provide clear connections and vocals without any dead spots. If a problem occurs, the intercom may be used to make contact with another family member right away.2. House Visitors
Intercom systems work both on the interior and exterior of the home. If you choose a system with video technology, then you may check on any visitors at the home. Before you open the door, you can see who is waiting outside and even use the intercom to communicate with them.
The intercom system will communicate with any room in the home and increases the safety of your home. Along with a video connection, some advanced intercoms may feed video streams directly to another device like a phone or tablet, so if you are not near one of the installed intercoms, you still could have access to the front porch camera.3. Younger Children
While you may call or text your spouse or other family members, younger children may not have access to a cell phone. An intercom offers an easy way to communicate with children in the home.
For example, a ten-year-old child may be in their playroom. You could use the intercom to remind them to pick up their toys, ask for their help, or communicate in other ways. The intercom may also be used to listen to other rooms. If you have a child who is supposed to be napping, you may listen in on the intercom as opposed to disrupting the sleep when you open the door.
The intercom works the other way as well, and a child can communicate any needs and questions they may have.4. Exterior Buildings
When have an intercom installed, the system is not just limited to the home. Garages, sheds, and pool houses are just a few of the locations where extra intercom stations may be located. And there are numerous uses for them.
For example, if the weather is bad, you may use the intercom to communicate with anyone who is inside a detached garage so you do not have to go outside and deal with weather elements. If someone goes swimming, they may use the intercom to request food or a towel so water does not drip through the house.
The communication points offer ease of use and direct communication for any room in the home.
