Modern technology is changing the face of security all the time. The first point of security is usually the entrance to the property. This is where best video intercoms help control access both for security purposes as well as for convenience.
If you are looking for a home security system, this is where you begin.
First of all, you will have to decide whether you need to mount your video intercom on your gate entrance or at your front door. It depends where the first barrier is to visitors, strangers or friends.
Then you decide whether you want to admit this person or not. You will find a large variety of types of video intercom units, and you will have to look around and decide which type and model suits your needs.
Today's security systems are so sleek and neat. They are really no longer an eye sore, but are small and inconspicuous. According to what sort of price you are looking at for the set, you usually have a choice of either a black and white, or a colour monitor. The mobile units are particularly useful. Your main camera is mounted outside, while the monitor is available in a small unit hardly bigger than a cell phone.
Video intercom security systems come in a whole range of prices according to the level of sophistication. Not everyone needs to be able to communicate with, or to allow entrance to a visitor from a distance.
