What Do You Get Installing an Intercom System?

When you're considering hiring intercom installers, you want to make sure that you get the additional security that your property genuinely needs. If you have an existing system, consider its pros and cons to find an intercom that fills the gaps and helps address weak spots in your business or home security. Not all systems are created equally and it's important that you capitalize on installation costs by being thoughtful about finding the right solution for your needs. Here are some common inclusions that many intercom brands and camera systems include.

Remote Access

Ask your intercom installer to see if remote access is available. This is one of the most useful features of modern systems as it allows you or a trusted team member to keep an eye on the property without physically being there. Typically, this access is established through an internet connection and it syncs with intercom apps directly to your smart devices. As long as you have Wi-Fi or data service, you'll be able to see your system from anywhere in the world with a smartphone app.

Video Calling

Video intercom systems continue to increase in popularity and for good reason. These systems help with added security and allow both businesses and homeowners to see a visual on-site assessment of what's going on within the property. Whether you're in a multi-family complex or an office, video calling can protect your property.

There's no doubt that the security requirements of your commercial or residential property might be expensive. There are some businesses and homeowners who prefer to start with a few rooms before investing in full-blown systems. If this is the route you opt to take, make sure to get an accurate estimate of how much it will be to expand the system. Not all systems have the capability of expansion, so make sure that it'll be a painless endeavor to add more security as needed.

Extended Range

If you've chosen a system that is wireless, consider the range. In reality, your intercom will only be functional as long as it can receive a system from your router or Wi-Fi. The majority of systems are able to reach up to 300 meters if there's an unobstructed signal, but this might not suffice if you need to cover an extended range. Consider an upgrade to a system with features that don't require wiring and can cover over 1,500 meters.

Noise Cancellation

Those who work in loud environments such as manufacturing warehouses or plants will likely want to invest in a system that has a noise cancellation feature. If the system cannot operate and do its job over the sound of the machines, it won't work properly. Even though these types of systems might be more expensive, they add significantly more value to the right environment.

Internet Connectivity

Many of today's efficient intercom systems also offer internet connectivity for prompt communication. This allows your intercoms to communicate with one another using Wi-Fi in your home and office, as well as adds the opportunity to access your commercial system from anywhere. Many modern setups can also work with your virtual assistants such as Amazon Alexa or Google Voice Assistant.

Group Calling

Managing a large business, or even if you have a large family with kids in multiple areas of the house at once, means your video intercom system should ideally have a group calling feature. This is a simple way to get everyone's attention, especially if you need to do so quickly. All you have to do is press a button and you'll be talking to everyone at once. Think of this as a "master station" of your extra security that can be used for everything from general announcements to letting the family know that dinner is ready.

The first step when designing a security system must be the technical security assessment which is a key component of the consulting process. Site surveys must be conducted to best analyze the type of security system that each facility requires. We define the security needs and the critical points of your existing system to identify future opportunities for more efficient security performance.

A security specialist will outline a security system plan and guide you on what equipment to use and where to install it. A security system layout plan will cover video surveillance, intercoms and door entry, fire alarms, electronic access control, and an all-encompassing commercial audio/video and other security features to ensure your property is safe. Forbel works with the best equipment brands. We communicate with our clients to define their exact security needs, suggest the best security solutions, and lay out the basic drawings of the future project so our clients can visualize the security goal.
In the same way, as no one would build a house without an architect, security specialists are the architects of your security system. At Forbel we use computer-aided drawings to map out alarm system designs, access control system designs, video surveillance designs, and role-based access control system designs so you can envision your security goals. We work with our clients to modify as we go along to ensure that the security documents we have prepared align with the security needs of our clients. When preparing CADs for our clients, we make sure they are easily understood, and we maintain control over the sensitive information to ensure total privacy.
Once all the drawings have been presented and approved, we move on to the next phase — security implementation. We coordinate with our clients, and we cooperate with security equipment suppliers and installers, to provide the best integrated security systems with winning results. It is our business model to ensure we offer superior service coupled with security equipment and integrated systems that our clients can completely rely on.
We manage every project with attention to detail from start to finish. We are in constant communication with developers, contractors, designers, architects, elevator installers, electricians, and suppliers to ensure the smooth implementation of every security system design. Our priority is to ensure that the project yields the best results and that all equipment is installed in full accordance with legal requirements, blueprints, and architectural and design layouts in mind.

Client's Reviews

Village Children’s Academy Hinsdale

We had been having problems with our door for months and had not been able to find anyone who was able or willing to fix it. Dzmytri responded to my request right away and was able to correctly diagnose our problem with just a few photos. They are terrific!

Enis Lewis

Forbel provided excellent and quick service by replacing three assistance intercoms in our 24-story high-rise located in the Chicago South Loop. The installation was done by a technician that knew what he was doing and done very clean -- absolutely the best customer service I have experienced. Makes my job a lot easier knowing I can depend on this company when the need arises. Looking forward to working with them again!

Michael Stone

I’ve had a great and easy experience with Forbel and there weren’t any hassles to deal with. They were upfront and honest about anything regarding costs/monthly rates. I’ll be sticking with them and might expand my security system with them since crime in my area seems to be increasing.
