Like BPT, Comelit Group is an Italian manufacturer of intercom systems. Comelit intercoms are distinguished first and foremost by their innovative approach and technology. The company motto “Passion. Technology. Design” is the best reflection of both the company and its products.
Comelit gained popularity thanks to its two-wire system (Comelit SimpleBus), which does not require a special cable and works over quiet long distances. After the intercom market began to move towards IP in the 2000s, Comelit quickly offers its customers a full IP system, which was named Comelit VIP (not luxury but Video Internet Protocol).
Unlike most IP systems on the market, Comelit VIP uses its own closed protocol. Thanks to it, the transmission speed of a single video stream is only 350 kbit / sec, compared to the usual 3 – 4 Mbit / sec in SIP. But this solution has a disadvantage – no other manufacturer on the intercom system Comelit will not work, and you are dependent on one manufacturer.
The Comelit VIP system can be integrated into the company’s own smart home, called Comelit SimpleHome. In principle, it covers most customer needs. However, it is not as flexible as KNX, Crestron or Control4, with which BAS-IP integrates perfectly.
But you probably came here for a comparison of Comelit VIP and BAS-IP IP intercom systems. We present it to you below.
