BPT Intercom System

History of BPT

The history of BPT (stands for Brevetti Plozner Torino) began in 1953 when it was founded by Lisio Plozner. Since its foundation, the company focused its efforts on the production of technological devices for the home, and one of its first products was a doorbell with illumination. Ten years later, BPT began making its first Hands-free intercom.

BPT intercoms combine European quality, reliability, and ease of use. The device is easy to install and maintain.

Bought by Came

In 2011, BPT was bought by the Italian manufacturer of automatic gates Came. All the employees and technology and even the name remained the same for the first years. Many experts predicted a bleak future for BPT intercoms because the customer groups of both companies are similar. But later on, however, the BPT products carried the Came label, BPT lost its focus and made fewer and fewer innovative door communication solutions. This was probably not a good decision, at least from BPT’s side. We will always remember original BPT’s commitment to innovation and modern solutions.

At the moment, BPT Came’s position is strong in the UK, South Africa, and Australia.

Most Functional Came BPT Intercom System

Among the intercom systems BPT, the most functional is CAME BPT IP 360. It is a full IP system, not a hybrid as in the case of xIP. BPT IP 360 can work in the existing local network of the building. The system works with Came’s cloud, and calls are made to mobile applications via Came Connect. See below for a comparison of the IP 360 with the BAS-IP IP system.
