Benefits of an Intercom for Your Security System in Toronto

Originally posted on 17 February 2023

Intercoms are a popular addition to security systems in Toronto. Featuring home security cameras and microphones, intercom systems allow people throughout a home to communicate and monitor activity in other areas of the property. Intercoms can be customized to suit your property needs. To learn more about maximizing the functionality of your intercom system and security camera installation, reach out to the professionals at Engineered Alarm Solutions. 

The Problem with Out-of-the-Box Solutions

Out-of-the-box intercom security systems often consist of a single doorbell camera that is not integrated with the rest of your home security cameras and security system. Because they rely on WiFi connections, they can use up a significant amount of bandwidth, slowing your internet connection and delaying your access to live feeds and updates from the viewing station, whether it's a wall hook-up or from your mobile device. Despite seemingly simple intercom and security camera installation, these systems may be more vulnerable to tampering and hacking. Whereas more sophisticated intercom systems offer improved security and more customization options. 

Benefits of Sophisticated Intercom Security Systems in Toronto

From integration and security to flexible installation and remote access, intercom systems offer many benefits to homeowners looking to enable ease, convenience, and accessibility at home. 

  • Flexible Functionality: One of the primary functions of an intercom system is to allow you to communicate with someone who approaches your building or property, even if they are at a different level or floor. For example, if someone rings your doorbell, you can use the intercom system to speak to them and see them on a video screen before deciding whether or not to allow them in. This can be especially useful for potential screening visitors, such as delivery people or service providers, to ensure they are legitimate.  In addition to allowing you to communicate with people at the doorbell, intercom systems can also be used to communicate with people in different areas of your property, such as between different floors or rooms. This can be useful for homes with multiple levels, making communication with family members or other occupants much easier and more efficient.
  • Remote Access & Cell Phone Notifications: Even when you're not at home, advanced security systems, such as the Aiphone IP Intercom system, allow you to receive notifications that someone is at your door directly from your mobile device, so long as you have an internet connection. These intercoms give you mobile control through an app, so you can always see and speak with people regardless of if you're at home or on the go, increasing visibility of your property and your family, enabling peace of mind. By allowing you to monitor and control your system from anywhere, these features make it easier to keep your property secure and ensure that only authorized individuals are allowed in.

We are religious sisters and about two years ago we needed to protect our home because our neighbourhood is not very safe. We leave in a big house with too many windows and doors.

They came to check our home and explained to us all the options we had and provided an estimate. We also had other estimate from a different...


After moving into a new home, we needed a reliable security system to keep our family safe. We contacted Gabriel for a full alarm system, home automation, and security cameras.

No sales pitch, just honest work and guidance on how to best protect our home. We now have a top of the line system, apps installed...


From initial contact until completed installation Engineered Alarm Solutions Incorporated were outstanding. I was provided with several options to choose from. A professional technician installed a new system in my home within 2 days of making the decision to upgrade my home security system. The service was prompt and the installation went ahead without issue. The price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to install a security system.

5 star review Several years ago, I hired Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) to install a Monitored Alarm System, Security Cameras, and Home Automation (Deadbolts, Thermostat, Lighting Control, etc.) in our new home. When we purchased the home, it came with a pre-existing security system that was frustrating to use, had recurrent false alarm issues, and we needed to find a new company to install a reliable and better quality system. Our experience with EAS was extremely positive and we have...
