Pros and Cons of Installing an Intercom in Your Apartment Building
Updated: Feb 9
Purchasing a video intercom is a big decision, so it’s important to consider all options and logistics before buckling down with one. In this blog, we are going to go over the pros and cons of installing an apartment video intercom system to help make the decision easier on you.
Keyless entry - never have to worry about forgetting your keys again. With a multi-tenant intercom system that can connect to your phone from anywhere, you’re able to gain access without having to carry bulky keys around with you.
Increased security - having a wireless intercom system for buildings provides increased security because of its ability to connect to the tenant’s phone from anywhere. With this feature, tenants are able to control access to their building from anywhere in the world. Our intercom system also has a one-way video call, so visitors will not know if the tenant is home or not, further increasing safety.
Package delivery management - Now when tenants are at work or on the go, they don’t have to worry about missing a package or it getting stolen while left outside their building. When a delivery is being made, they can approve the driver’s entrance into the building.
Increased spending - Intercoms are not free, unfortunately, so you will have to put down some cash for the hardware of an intercom system, as well as installing it. We recommend collecting quotes and doing research based on different blogs that compare pricing and intercom functions.
Landline capabilities - Without a smartphone, you are still able to use the intercom, however you cannot utilize the video feature. Not everyone has a smartphone today, so for those who are in the older generation or simply don’t want to be connected to technology so much, installing a video intercom system may not be for you.
There are many different things to consider when thinking about purchasing an apartment building intercom system, so we hope this helps to break it down more for you.
