What You Need to Know About Wireless Intercom Systems
carries the two best wireless intercoms systems on the
market. One communicates in the 900 MHz frequency at a range up to
1000 feet and another in the MURS frequency with a range that is
measured in miles, not feet. Actual range of any wireless device
varies depending on lots of factors that are described here:
two way radio range .
We don't carry the "wireless" intercoms that communicate
over your building wiring. One of these type of products is the
Westinghouse Wireless Intercom. We found that returns were much
higher on these systems. One problem with them is that they are
prone to interference from appliances and electric equipment. The
other is that a building's wiring is usually done in two phases and
the signal doesn't always cross to the other phase. So they may work
fine in half the building, but not the other half.
is the most featured and economical of the two lines we carry. There
are three types of intercoms in this product line. They
can be totally battery powered with a battery life up to two years,
or the indoor model can be AC powered. The indoor unit has features such as monitor mode or
voice activation mode that our MURS intercoms doesn't have.
MURS wireless intercom
what you need if you need long-range or want to use the intercom in
a concrete or metal building (you may need to use an external
antenna, which MURS is capable of using). This type of construction
greatly reduces the range of a wireless intercom, but in many cases,
a MURS wireless intercom will have the power to make it through these
walls without use of an external antenna. It depends on how far you
are trying to reach. These factors are all described in the article
about two way radio range above. The MURS intercoms have a
wider variety of compatible products so they are able to solve more
communication problems for business and residential use.
