Traditional to Modern: Benefits of Upgrading to A Wireless Intercom System
I think we can all agree that communication is an essential component in any workplace environment. Not only does it allow information to travel from one employee to another but it also enables everyone in the office to collaborate and work together more effectively. A good communication system is the foundation of a productive business. And so, there is always a benefit to be had when it comes to investing in communication systems for the office. This article will serve as your guide to wireless intercoms. Here, we’ll talk you through some key concerns when it comes to traditional systems, then we’ll show you how these concerns are eliminated and addressed in a modern wireless intercom system.
Ease of Installation
One common issue with traditional wired systems is that the installation process can be quite a challenge. This is especially true for buildings or establishments that were not constructed with provisions for wires or communication lines. In contrast, wireless intercoms can be installed virtually anywhere. Because this system does not require complex wirings, there is generally less work needed when it comes to installation. As such, this option is a very versatile strategy for any type of office layout or environment.
Low Overall Cost
Naturally, you could expect that these systems are a bit more expensive as compared to the traditional wired options. This is because you get added features on top of the usual things that you get from a basic communication system. However, because you don’t have to put in as much effort into repairs and maintenance, these systems tend to be a more cost-effective option in the long run. Moreover, having a modern system in your workplace means that you are future-proofing your operations. As a result, you won’t have to replace any equipment because of obsolescence or some other factors. Finally, because modern wireless intercom systems are generally packed with a lot more features, you could expect to replace your other existing equipment for things like remote access controls or monitoring. Thus, you eliminate the need of having different equipment for different functions, which can further drive the costs of operation down.
Comprehensive and Integrated
As we mentioned earlier, wireless intercom systems provide users with more than just a line of communication. Commonly, these systems also include remote unlocking, multi-door access, remote management, etc. Basically, you can simultaneously manage different things in one control center. Things like giving access to visitors, monitoring who’s entering/exiting the rooms, communicating to employees or guests, among others, can easily be achieved in a wireless intercom system. This system is also often integrated, meaning that managers have access to all the features in one computer. Unlike traditional systems that require proprietary gadgets, you can expect that operating these tools won’t be as tedious nor cumbersome.
Security and Safety
Another benefit of a modern wireless intercom system is regarding security and safety. Features such as remote access control, live audiovisual monitoring, and encryption all add up to make the entire workplace impenetrable. One key advantage as well of a modern wireless intercom system is that it can be conveniently updated as time passes by. This means that the system can withstand modern infiltration methods via over-the-air (OTA) updates or security patches. As a result, such a system won’t be as prone to obsolescence because it can easily adapt to address newer threats.
Finally this system can be operated or backed up to a cloud server. Of course, you could still opt to operate everything on a local computer but having the option of cloud storage means that this system is a lot more flexible. This also means that management will be able to monitor everything remotely without having to be actually on-site. This is extremely helpful for those businesses with agencies or branches that require constant management control and supervision.
