Mircom Vs. Whoo Intercom
Mircom’s TX3-Touch models offer voice and video calling for secure building access. While most models connect to each apartment via in-unit hardware, Mircom does make a mobile app for remote access for certain models.
With Whoo Intercom, the mobile app feature is guaranteed. This provides a better user experience for residents, allowing them to see their visitors, open doors, and manage package delivery all from their smartphone. Whoo intercom apartment video intercom system has an intuitive and simple design making it easy to use and enabling a seamless experience for both residents and visitors.
Because Whoo uses existing wiring and connects to the building's existing door strike, it’s incredibly easy to install and much more affordable than Mircom. In fact, many of Whoo customers have opted to replace their old Mircom apartment buzzer system with a modern Whoo intercom. Unlike Mircom, Whoo offers a cloud-based management system which allows building managers to update tenant information and onboard new residents quickly and easily.
