Don’t let just anyone in the door. Whether you’re managing an office building or living in a larger home, an intercom system for gates or doors can be a simple way to boost security – and save you running downstairs every time the doorbell rings.
Intercom systems are linked to entryways or outside gates, and let you use CCTV or just audio to communicate with visitors. They’re handy for commercial buildings, apartments, and larger homes, where you’re a reasonable distance from the front door or gate. Once you’ve identified the person, you use a remote button to release the lock – or not.
Intercom systems control who enters your property, but they shouldn’t make it harder for you, your staff, or your family to enter. Visitors need to push a button at entry points, while people who use the property regularly can use their key cards or passcodes.
Intercom systems have traditionally been used in apartment or office buildings, and more and more homeowners are using them as an extra layer of security too. If you have a gated property, installing a keypad and intercom at the front gate means you don’t have to deal with unwanted visitors at your door – simply check the CCTV then either ignore them or politely turn them away over intercom.
If you’re a business owner with multiple buildings or frequent travel, an intercom system keeps things secure even when you’re offsite. Our systems can work with your mobile phone or PC, so you can see visitors and let people in, even if you’re thousands of kilometres away. These systems also come in handy if a third party is monitoring your buildings.
We’ve designed, built and maintained security systems for many large and complex organisations across New Zealand, including the Dunedin and Queenstown casinos, which involved card-access control, alarms, a large number of security cameras and full-time on-site surveillance. Our work with the new Acute Services Building at Christchurch Hospital involved 200 security cameras and access control for over 600 doors.
