We tell you how to secure your yard with the help of modern technologies.

We live in turbulent times. But to secure your home from uninvited guests is quite possible. In many countries of the world, a large-scale installation of IP intercom systems in apartment buildings has begun.

We tried to answer the most important questions about new generation intercoms in this article.

What is it for?

A conventional intercom locks the door and allows it to be opened with a key or by pressing a button on the intercom handset, which you have to run to when you call. The keys to such intercoms, as a rule, are universal, and they can be made in any workshop. This means that anyone can get into your entrance. These are scammers who walk around apartments, posing as representatives of the special services, and distributors of various products.

Although, it would seem, the entrance is protected.

With the advent of digital intercoms on the market, life has become safer and more comfortable. They are equipped with a high-resolution camera that continuously records everything that happens at the entrance within a radius of 15 meters. You can rewind it to find and save the desired fragment.

All smart intercom panels are connected to the Internet and controlled from a smartphone through a special application

Let's say your doorbell rings. The call from the intercom goes to the smartphone. You can see who came to you, talk to the visitor and open the door. And you don't have to be in an apartment to do it. You will always have access to the intercom where there is Internet. And even while abroad, you can communicate with those who came to you, creating the appearance of being in the apartment.

With the help of a smart intercom, you can see if your child has come from school and if an elderly relative who may get lost has gone for a walk. Often, with the help of video, they find out who scratched a car parked at the entrance.

According to the survey, everyone notes that the entrances have become cleaner, there are fewer strangers in them, and video control disciplines the neighbors well. 80% of residents noted changes in their entrance after installing a digital intercom.

According to the records from the cameras of digital intercoms, the police quickly solve crimes: theft of bicycles and other property from the entrance and places close to the house, robberies, robberies.

Will I be able to get into the entrance if I don't have my phone with me?

Yes, the smart intercom provides keyless entry access. In this case, you don’t even have to get the tag out of your pocket or bag - as soon as you approach the door, the intercom will see the tag and give a signal to open the door. But the normal key is also issued. It is also protected from copying. But even if you forgot the key, the door can also be opened both from the handset and the monitor.
