Intercom – Voice Communication
Voice communication has become a top priority for security and safety systems. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) implemented regulations for voice clarity in fire alarm systems. The same specifications and regulations are now being applied to the intercom, public address, and mass notification.
Used daily, intercom systems provide clear voice communication between an employee or visitor and needed assistance. Garage entry may require a voice call with a security guard to gain entry. A panicked assault victim may use an intercom station to request immediate security response. Each situation must be handled quickly and efficiently with the highest level of confidence.
A resilient intercom system deployment requires a minute awareness of operational demands, as well as a technical knowledge of the various communication paths, ranging from telephone lines to high-performance data networks.
