The Security And Convenience Of A Home Intercom

Originally posted on 18 November 2019

Not a lot of people have realized the accessibility and convenience of owning a home intercom system. Most of our exposure to them is in movies in those fancy mansions many of us can never hope to afford. The reality of it is, intercoms have never been cheaper! As technology advances, those things that used to be luxury items are now affordable to a larger demographic. What can a home intercom system really do to benefit us though? Let’s take a look!

Easier communication

A home intercom provides easier communication for all members of your house! Even if your house isn’t the size of a mansion, it’s likely big enough that you find yourself yelling from one room to the next. With an intercom, you don’t have to! No more need to yell to the kids for dinner! No more need to yell to a knock at the door that you’ll be there in a minute! You can simply go to the nearest intercom and speak at your normal voice to communicate with those out of immediate earshot.

Lowers stress

The easier communication allowed by a home intercom system will lower the stress levels of everyone in the house. A lot of us are so used to the raised stress that yelling causes that we don’t even notice it anymore. However, it’s proven that yelling raises stress. Being able to communicate clearly without raising your voice or having to repeat yourself will noticeably lower your stress levels quickly! Not to mention, being on the receiving end of yelling is also stressful. The entire family benefits from an intercom!

Protects Your Well-being and Property

If you have people visiting your home frequently for professional reasons, to sell you things, or to deliver packages you can benefit from an intercom! It can be stressful seeing a stranger at your door. It’s not unheard of for criminals to impersonate salesmen to gain access to a house. It’s in your best interest to keep a barrier between you and those who mean to do you harm. An intercom system will allow you to greet them and ask them what they’re there for without even having to open the door. Not only do you not have to put yourself at risk, you don’t even have to walk downstairs!

Many modern intercom systems that can be accessed from your phone will even allow you access from out of the house. That means answering your door from work and giving burglars the illusion that you’re still at home. If a burglar knows there’s someone home, they’re much more likely to leave it alone. Burglars don’t want to come face to face with a homeowner so if they think you’re home and don’t know where in the house you are, they won’t risk it.

Give us a call if you have questions about how Engineered Alarm Solutions can help you with installation.

A Great Job! to the team at Engineered Alarm Solutions for the work performed at my home. From top management to the installers, the team delivered an efficient and professional service. The installers were on time, left the grounds spotless and provided all the support necessary to operate the system. Management provided recommendations that were spot on, and I very much appreciated the honesty and knowledge provided, can't get much better than that.

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. The Priest from our Church recommended us to call Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) because they have done the security systems at the Church. We called EAS for an estimate. 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. He met with us in person to ensure we understood the services and how everything worked. As an engineer by trade, Gabriel gave us comfort in his expertise and superior knowledge in the field. 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.

We recommended him to another business a few units down from us who required an even more complex security system and have heard only good things since then. Would definitely recommend using their...

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...
