Single User or Single tenant intercom system usually consists of 1-2 door bells or entrance panels and 1-4 indoor monitors. These systems serve best Single family homes or business operators who do not have an intercom as part of the facility they work in.
Multi-Tenant systems are usually installed in buildings who have 2 or more separate condos/apartments. These systems can accommodate 1000’s of units with as low as 1 entrance panel or 10 entrance panels in accordance to the customer’s needs. In Linked Security we specialize in NY’s most common multi-tenant systems like Aiphone and Leedan as well as in newer players in the industry like Siedel and ButterflyMX that offer a few different interesting features like built-in Virtual Doorman service or IP based Intercom.

Phone directory intercoms are composed of a front panel that is hardwired to a phone line. When a user chooses a tenant’s name from the list the intercom will call a pre-programmed phone number to reach the tenant. The door can be opened by pressing one of the numbers on the phone’s keypad. The advantages of these systems are the low cost – since there are no indoor units to install, and the vandal-proof panel which suits vandal-prone areas. The disadvantages of these systems are the necessity of a phone line for each tenant (cell phone lines are ok as well) and the fact that there’s no video feed, meaning these are Audio Only systems. Some of the leading manufacturers of these systems are Mircom, Door King (DKS) and Keri Systems.
Similar to a phone directory intercom system, IP system uses 1 (or more) front panel and requires no indoor units but this system is connected to the internet and not the phone line. When a user chooses a tenant’s name off the list (usually a touch screen panel) the intercom system calls the tenant’s smart phone through a designated App. Using this App the tenant can talk and see who’s at the door, and open the door as well. Since most people these days have a smart phone with internet connectivity these systems offers a great option for multi-tenants buildings who want to save money on expensive installations and yet offer an Audio/Video intercom service to their tenants. Some other features you can find in some of these systems are: Optional indoor unit using a tablet based device, Virtual Doorman services, Video feed monitoring by third party security services, automatic snapshots of visitors and much more. Some of the leading manufacturers of these kind of systems are 2N and ButterflyMX.

Linked Security offers a FREE of charge or commitment consultation meeting where we will come to your location, examine the existing intercom system and wiring, and explain the different options you have.
The most important thing when considering an Intercom Upgrade is the type of wiring currently existing in the building and their condition. This factor will determine whether we need to run new wires or not for the new system.
Many audio intercom systems are using just enough wires for us to use for an upgrade. Click Here to learn more about Intercom Upgrade.
