An intercom system is an excellent way for homeowners or business owners to know who is at the door, and to enable convenient, two-way room-to-room communication. Installing a home intercom system provides enhanced security by enabling homeowners to screen visitors, and also allows family members to conveniently communicate from anywhere throughout their home. For small or mid-sized businesses, commercial intercom systems are an excellent security solution to facilitate communication and help protect employees, customers and vendors, and deter theft and other crimes.
Modern intercom systems go far beyond simple two-way communication. Today’s intercom technology allows users to listen to their favorite music, see who is at the door with their smartphone, speak with visitors without opening the door, call their kids for dinner, monitor their baby and more. Options for intercom systems include:

Intercom systems can help you and your family to communicate more effectively around your home. If you need something quickly, having access to an intercom can be more efficient than texting multiple family members on a smartphone. Businesses can enjoy the same convenience, as a voice intercom system allows owners and managers to page employees no matter where they are located in the office.
No matter where you are in your home or business, video intercoms can make your life much more convenient. New parents can monitor their sleeping infant from another room. Business owners can keep an eye on the' front desk late at night when they are in the back working on payroll. Both are possible with video intercom solutions from John Whitford Communications.
It’s now easier than ever for you to access your intercom system remotely. This is beneficial for both homeowners and business owners alike. Imagine you are a homeowner and you get an alert on your phone that there is someone on your front porch. You could speak with them immediately, no matter where you are, to find out why they are at your home – and give the impression that you are at home. The same goes for business owners, who may receive an alert that a motion sensor was triggered at their business after hours. Being able to log into your intercom could help scare off a potential intruder, before they have the opportunity to vandalize or steal from your business.
