IP video intercom systems

Everybody got used to black-and-white individual intercoms, as well as to multi-apartment audio intercoms, thanks to which, one can distantly open the doors, talk to the visitor, or check on events taking place near the entrance. Such devices are usually installed in office centres, multi-floor entrances, and country houses, but they do not guarantee 100 % safety, because it is easy to “trick” them.

Fortunately enough, technology keeps progressing and both audio and video intercoms are being replaced by IP systems which are characterized by the exceptional functionality and stylish design.
