Benefits of Adding Intercoms to Your Commercial Security Systems

Originally posted on 19 January 2024

Benefits of Adding Intercoms to Your Commercial Security Systems

Whether you run a warehouse, office, mall, or standalone store, commercial properties require high-level security to protect staff, property, data, and other valuables. Many business owners leverage advanced commercial security cameras and alarm systems to enable this type of security. While these cameras and alarm systems are indispensable features of effective security systems in Toronto, intercoms can bolster the effectiveness of security efforts and improve the ease of operation. To learn whether intercom systems are a practical option for your organization, book a consultation with the experts at Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. Our specialists have experience with a vast range of businesses in the Greater Toronto Area, from customized security systems, intercom systems, and security camera installation in Toronto. 

Read on to explore how an intercom system can bolster your security system. 

Seamless Access Control

Benefits of Adding Intercoms to Your Commercial Security SystemsOne of the primary benefits of integrating intercoms into a commercial security system in Toronto is to enhance access control. Access control systems, offered by Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc., are a great way to facilitate control over who can access what. Intercom systems, essentially two-way speakers that connect two different rooms, can enhance the functionality of access control systems. If there are visitors who are not automatically granted access to a particular area, intercom systems allow you to speak directly with people hoping to gain access at various entry points. When integrated with security cameras visible from your smartphone, you can make real-time decisions about who to let in. Allowing authorized personnel to remotely grant access to visitors adds an extra layer of security while streamlining entry procedures, preventing unnecessary bottlenecks.

Efficient Communication

Communication is the backbone of any successful business operation. In a bustling commercial setting, where time is money, intercom systems offer a straightforward and efficient means of communication that can free businesses from the constraints of paging. Employees can relay messages across different departments without physically crossing the entire premises. This time-saving benefit boosts productivity and ensures that urgent matters are addressed promptly.  Intercom systems are designed to make it easier for your business to communicate instantly with employees. While phone systems are important in any business environment, intercoms can provide an alternate communication style, one that’s more immediate, with fewer complications and more options. You can even invest in a smart intercom system that will work with smartphones and other internet-enabled devices. Intercom systems are ideal for quick messages, such as asking someone to check their email for an important notification. It takes seconds to contact someone via intercom, while it could take minutes or longer with phones.

Officewide Announcements

Phone systems don’t usually allow office-wide announcements. If your business needs to send out a quick message to everyone, such as emergency notifications, press a button, and you can talk to everyone at once.

Visitor Management Made Smarter

For commercial facilities without designated staff watching the doors to await deliveries and other visitors, intercom offers staff the convenience of screening and identifying visitors before granting access. When enhanced with a camera, the intercom enables a proactive approach to visitor management that mitigates the risk of unauthorized entry. This also allows quicker response to visitors waiting for someone to serve them at the door. You can still communicate without wait times, even if the team is otherwise occupied. 

Integration with Modern Security Technologies

One of the benefits of curating a commercial security system in Toronto with Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. is the ability to seamlessly integrate each element of your security system. When you install an intercom system at essential entry points or various areas in your building, you are allowing for a more robust security effort because you can use them with your security cameras and alarm system. For example, if a motion alarm is triggered in a room that’s supposed to be closed off, you can use your intercom communication to speak directly with the person in that room. Alternatively, if it’s after hours, your monitoring station can also inform anyone suspicious on your property that the authorities are on their way. This synergy ensures that every corner of the commercial property is under vigilant watch.

Remote Management & Access

Like many other elements of your security system, modern intercom systems and video feeds available at Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. can be accessed remotely from authorized smart devices (tablets, laptops, and phones). This feature is particularly beneficial for businesses in Toronto because it allows personnel to monitor and manage the intercom system from anywhere with an internet connection, maximizing visibility of the property and connection to the business.
