As soon as any security system grows to the network level, IP technologies come to the rescue. Such common access control and management systems (ACS) as intercom systems were no exception.

What is an IP intercom?

One very interesting feature endowed with intercom with the advent of IP technology, not only enhanced networking capabilities. Thanks to IP, this access control system has acquired an arsenal of “adjacent” security systems – video, video analytics, and the ability to integrate with the equipment of other systems. Including household (Internet of things, IoT).

Today, an IP intercom is a digital device that:

  • supports network operation of an almost unlimited number of system elements (door panels, video intercoms, additional video surveillance cameras, water leakage control equipment, actuators);
  • allows you to create a whole video surveillance system on the basis of one video intercom by connecting several video cameras to it;
  • allows you to build a system of video communication inside the building (important if you have a large office with many rooms or a private house where a large family lives);
  • supports video analytics functions (scheduled recording, motion detection, etc.);
  • makes it possible to control the electric lock using an application on a smartphone.

We are confident that in the near future IP intercoms will significantly increase the number of functions that will help organize the comfort and safety of our customers. So, already today, many experts believe that buying an IP video intercom means starting the construction of the “Smart Home” system in the house.

Selecting an IP intercom

The IP intercom itself is the heart of the network system. In the kit, additional devices that support the IP protocol must also be selected for it. Simply put, when choosing an IP video intercom, you also choose the equipment that can work with it within the same system.

The choice of IP intercom is influenced in different sequences by the following factors:

  • the need to seriously reduce the number and footage of wires. In this case, you can use an existing computer network, or even use wireless communication (WiFi);
  • you need to control the opening of doors, the ability to remotely view video recordings in the archive or in real-time through an application on a smartphone;
  • you need to connect a lot of outdoor panels, monitors, and other devices;
  • get high-quality equipment, a simple interface for operating and managing system settings, scalability for future system expansion;
  • become the owner of fancy equipment.

Multi-apartment intercoms from BAS-IP meet all these and many other requirements.
