An intercom system can be used at an industrial park, in the office, at hospitals or at home to facilitate communication independent of the telephone system. An intercom is generally a closed circuit and facilitates communication in a limited area. However, it can be linked with other security systems such as door sensors, access control, and CCTV system. The choice of the intercom system to use depends on the areas that you want to facilitate communication, the kind of integrations you want as well as the cost you are willing to take for the installation of the system. Different brands will vary in cost.
Today at TR Alarm Systems Inc we want to discuss the ins and outs of our intercoms and intercom system installation in NYC.

The base station
This is the main control point for the whole system. Every other part of the intercom system are connected to the base station. In intercom systems that are divided into zones, the base station has the ability to broadcast messages to all the zones or some of the zones.
The substations are also referred to as the speakers. They broadcast one-way communication from the base station. Therefore, they have neither the microphones nor the buttons for use by the people on this end. Substations are used in malls, train stations, schools, and airport to give direction or instructions in the daily operations. At home, a substation may be placed in the parent room if they are monitoring the baby who is in a different room. Therefore, the parent can hear the baby, but the baby does not hear the parents from the other end.
These parts of the intercom connect to the base or master station. They include the headsets; wall mounted system and handsets. They have a push a talk button that enables communication to the base station.
It is important to have an intercom system installed by qualified installers such as us at TR Alarm Systems Inc for efficient functionality. Much of the installation work involves setting up the stations and substations and wiring them to the base station. Our installers will identify the location for the mounting of these parts, installs them and then connects them to the base station.
Moreover, depending on the system, they may have to configure such settings as zoning, integration to the other systems and set the access levels for the users. Most systems have an allowance for installation of additional stations when there is a need. Our installers also provide periodic maintenance of the system.
