Telguard Intercoms & Door Entry
The demand for intercom systems has skyrocketed over the last six months.
As always in this industry, we’ve been presented with a few interesting installation challenges around cabling, connectivity and more.
For example, when providing remote access to a site, where connectivity is a budgetary and practical challenge, it requires us to get our thinking caps on.
Furthermore, a site where cabling is an issue requires an alternative solution.

Video intercom provides businesses with a safe effective means to restrict and grant access to and from its premises. We’ve worked alongside Hikvision for years. In fact, one of our co-directors used to work for them at the start of his career.
When it comes to video intercom, Hikvision’s two-way system is a perfect fit for a range of businesses. As an example, we have seen a massive increase in doctor’s surgeries looking to use these systems to discuss health issues with patients securely, during the current pandemic.
Businesses can use video intercom systems as an alternative to a reception team. Stations can be positioned around the office for when a visitor arrives, upon which a member of staff can easily let them in with a push of a button.
