Types of Intercom Systems
There are four main types of security intercoms homeowners and business owners can choose from, they are:
- Hard-Wired Intercom Units: These units are one of the most common types of intercom systems. They are usually professionally installed when a brand new property is being built. This type of intercom system is typically hidden inside the walls of a house. These intercom systems are more resistant to wear and tear, and external interferences. Additionally, the audio signal tends to be better, so you will be able to hear the person you are talking with more clearly.
- Wireless Intercom Units: These systems use different types of radio frequencies to send intercom signals within your property. They tend to be less expensive than hard-wired intercom units and don’t require any type of installation. Usually, these intercom systems are battery-powered.
- Carrier-Current Intercom Units: The type of intercom system is less expensive than hard-wired systems and is integrated into the electrical system of a house or building. The intercom system will work alongside the electricity to have a conversation with the person in front of your door. These systems are easy to install and maintain. However, the audio quality might not be that as good as hard-wired intercom systems.
- Automatic-Gate-Entry Intercom Units: Automatic-gate-entry intercom system allow you to open a gate on your property when someone visits. This type of system can be very desirable since you don’t have to be physically present at the gate in order to open it or close it. In most cases, automatic-gate-entry intercom units are also equipped with a small camera to allow you to see who is at the gate, as well as with an indoor video display, so you can see the visitor is. You will also be able to communicate with them through a speaker.

The Installation Process
Our installation process is designed to ensure your security system is installed efficiently and correctly, so you will have the assurance that both your family and property are safe. Here are the steps and what you can expect for your Total Security surveillance installation.
Accessing the Home or Apartment
First, the technician will need access to your home, or to the apartments in your building in order to install and wire the intercom system. At this time they will install the entry panel and if they are installing multiple panels, ensure that each one is properly wired to the correct button on the front entry panel.
Toning and Testing the Cables
During the install, the technician will also test the cables, which is the most important step. This is done to ensure the cables can carry voltage before the intercom panel is installed.
Installing the Intercom Station
Once the testing and toning is complete the station for the intercom will be installed. Typically, this will only take 15-30 minutes.
Installing the Head and Equipment
Once everything else is completed the power supplies and the modules must be installed. They will require to be plugged into an outlet or plug, and it’s a good idea to put in a surge protector to prevent the equipment from degrading over time.
