Smartphone intercoms improves security to you home

Smartphone intercoms, also known as mobile intercom systems or mobile door intercoms, are devices or applications that enable communication between a smartphone and an intercom system installed in a building or a gated entryway.

They provide a convenient way to remotely communicate with visitors at your doorstep, allowing you to grant access or have a conversation without physically being present at the door.

Smartphone intercoms typically consist of two main components: the intercom system itself and a mobile app installed on your smartphone. The intercom system is usually installed at the entrance of a building or gate and is equipped with a camera, microphone, speaker, and a means of electronic access control, such as a door release mechanism. The mobile app connects to the intercom system via a network connection, enabling you to receive audio and video feeds from the intercom, as well as communicate with the visitor.

Here's a general overview of how smartphone intercoms work:

  1. Visitor initiates a call: When a visitor arrives at your doorstep, they can press a call button on the intercom system, which triggers a call request to your smartphone.

  2. Smartphone notification: The mobile app installed on your smartphone receives a notification, alerting you to the incoming call from the intercom.

  3. Two-way communication: Upon accepting the call, you can see and hear the visitor through the video and audio feeds transmitted by the intercom system. Similarly, your voice and video are transmitted back to the intercom.

  4. Access control: Depending on the capabilities of the smartphone intercom system, you may have the option to remotely unlock the door or gate to grant access to the visitor.

Smartphone intercoms offer several advantages, including convenience, enhanced security, and flexibility. They allow you to remotely manage access to your property, even when you're away from home, and provide a visual verification of visitors before granting them access. Additionally, some smartphone intercom systems may offer additional features like motion detection, cloud recording, or integration with smart home automation systems.

It's worth noting that the specific functionality and features of smartphone intercom systems can vary depending on the manufacturer and model. Therefore, it's advisable to research and choose a system that suits your specific requirements and integrates well with your smartphone platform.
