IP intercom is a SIP connected device
Designed allow one-way or two-way audio (and sometimes) video between two parties at door or access points with-in a building. The “IP” in IP intercom stands for Internet Protocol, which is a set of rules for routing and addressing data so that it can travel across the network or internet to specific devices you set-up to allow communication with.
SIP and IP based intercoms can either connect directly to each other via a Local Area Network (LAN) connection or through a SIP server which handles the requests based on predefined requirements. Compared to analog intercom systems, IP intercoms rely on digital technology, which allows them to transmit larger and more complex data such as audio AND video.
IP intercoms today are designed to allow both two-way communication and to allow for an entry point to a building’s electronic or magnetic lock to facilitate property access. These types of entry point IP Intercoms can also allow for non-monitored entry using RFID Cards or Key-fobs for verified users to gain access to a building or structure.
Today's intercoms and IP cameras offer a suite of functions and features where property managers can manage the intercom directory, grant or revoke permissions, and view audit trail events of all door release and access records. Depending on integrated devices, they also display other important information, such as the most common times doors open, video surveillance recordings and more. They even integrate with other property management software & Video Securing solutions to automatically update features and allowances for business in new ways.
