The Wide Range of Video Door Intercom Systems

By: Ron Mcbride


What was once a way to easily communicate with people throughout the house and at the front door, video door intercom systems now offers much more. There is a wide range of options and possibilities to choose from within the market today. Whether you are looking for increased security or want convenience, you can find it.
Sadly, as the population in the world increases so too does the crime. And because of this, more and more people are looking for increased safety. Video door intercom systems can be an effective method for screening who is that the door. When combined with an entry video camera and monitor, visitors can be screened before you open the door.
Aside from being able to see who is at the door, you can also speak to them as well. There is typically a control station somewhere inside your house that you can set up. From here, you can see the person at the door and speak with them prior to letting them in.


Another popular use for video door intercom systems is convenience. When you have a video door system, you can see who is at the door and allow them to come in without having to drop what you are doing to let them in. This becomes extremely convenient if you work at home and are in your office all of the time. You can place the control station in your office and see who is at the door without having to get up and look.
There are a number of other features that can come with a video door system as well, depending on the manufacturer and type of system that you purchase. For security measures, there are some systems that come with window sensors, glass breakage sensors, motion sensors, smoke alarms and alarm sirens.
For the highest security, there are video systems that can trigger an alarm that is sent to a security patrol or policeman. This way you can always be informed and also have a policeman at your house within a few minutes.
A common concern with systems this advanced is if you have a pet. But with the technology today, there are motion detectors that use an infrared technology to help prevent false alarms from going off. You can set the infrared beam high enough so that your pets can roam around freely and it will still pick up an intruder moving around.
It is amazing what technology has become in just a few years. While society continues to grow, so too does crime. Whatever your reason is for having a video door intercom system, there are a number of options to choose from with an array of features.
