BTicino Intercom System

What is BTicino?

BTicino is the large Italian company, manufacturer of design electric fittings (sockets, switches), low-voltage electrical equipment, as well as intercom systems and access control systems. The family company was founded in 1936 by brothers Arnaldo Luigi and Ermanno Bassani.

Since 1989, it is part of the Legrand Group. Of course, this has helped the company a lot, and today it is sold in more than 60 countries. Bticino is especially popular among installers of electrical fittings and smart home integrators.

In no way do we want to offend our colleagues, but Bticino intercom systems can hardly be called professional. They are really beautiful devices, which will perfectly fit into any interior. The first customers of Bticino intercom systems were the owners of private villas. However, many of our clients, especially smart home integrators, ask for more than design, and often compare our products.

BTicino DES – New IP Intercom system

And now, more recently, Bticino has introduced its new IP intercom system for large residential complexes, which includes entry panelsindoor monitors, and a concierge monitor. The IP system is called DES (Door Entry System). This product even received the RedDot in 2021, congratulations to our colleagues! Bticino DES is what we want to compare with our intercom system.
