Is an IP Intercom System a VoIP system, a cloud-based system, a SIP system? Yes. By definition, an IP intercom can be all of those.
IP intercom systems are a modern solution that connects to CAT5 cable or wireless infrastructure to transmit data, and often IP intercoms cut down on the amount of cabling needed.
Think computer network. The intercom door stations and video monitors are connected to a centralised PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch for power and connect the Intercom door stations and monitors for digital video & audio data transmission.
IP Intercoms are full-duplex. Both parties can talk at the same time, just like a telephone call. Video in high definition and audio quality is crystal clear perfect no matter what distance the signal needs to travel.
The beautifully crafted VTEK IP Intercom door station is constructed from 316-grade stainless steel and rated IP65 weatherproof.
One disadvantage of IP intercom systems is the cabling infrastructure must be CAT5; as such, it is unusual an IP intercom would be suitable for a system upgrade without cabling replacement.
