Commercial intercom systems fill the need where a business has a communication problem in part of their building. An intercom system installed professionally by Superior Alarms can help improve productivity, increase safety, and make for more satisfied employees.
Often times, when a business is looking for a commercial intercom system, what they really need is a telephone system along with an external paging amplfier. The telephone system allows employees to either call specific areas of the building, or with an external paging amplifier and speakers, they can page the entire building. A door phone can be added to the telephone system to enable visitors to an external door of the building to press a button to call someone inside, and that inside person could press a button to unlock the door.
However, there are times where a telephone system is not what is wanted. Telephone systems are expensive and the labor required to run the wires throughout the building is just as expensive. Some telephone systems these days don't even have the capability to do external paging.
If all that is wanted is the door phone application, then you can get an intercom system that has a single outdoor monitor along with a desktop or wall mounted indoor station. Then there is only one wire to run between the door and the inside station. Or you can also choose a wireless intercom for this application.
Sometimes there are just a few areas of the business where some form of communication is needed and there is no desire to run wires to them. That's where a wireless commercial intercom is needed.
One problem with a wireless intercom in many applications is that the environment is more challenging for the wireless equipment. In manufacturing companies there is a lot of equipment that may produce interference. The building construction often consists of metal framed walls and more electrical wiring to handle office equipment. Many commercial buildings are made of concrete walls and floors. These conditions will greatly reduce the range of a wireless intercom.
So when you look for wireless commercial intercom systems you want to make sure a system has a much longer range than you actually need. The longer range the intercom system has, the more power it has to overcome the obstacles in a commercial environment.
So the first thing you need to decide when you think you look at these systems is whether you really need a telephone system instead. If you don't want to invest in a telephone system, then most commercial intercom systems take the form of a wireless system. Then you just need to choose one that will work in your business environment.
