The intercom is another home automation product that has come a long way. Long gone are the days when you were limited to listening to a disembodied voice at the front door when someone came calling. Today you can see and speak with whoever is at your door from any room in your home. All that’s needed is a discreet front door camera and microphone that send an image and audio signal to an electronic touch panel or picture-in-picture window on any television set or PC.
Intercoms also work with internet cameras that connect to your house network and can be accessed by any network TV or computer. You can quickly and easily check on the baby’s room, activity in the kitchen, or who’s swimming in the pool.
