In the days of Web 2.0, Intercom solutions have long outgrown the image of the single-line, single-button door buzzer panel. In a wide range of communication and building management settings, Commend’s Intercom 2.0 is emerging as the future central hub technology that brings together everything from audio and video communication to building security, access control, parking and facility maintenance.
Behind this versatility lies a powerful technical architecture that serves and co-ordinates the three key functionalities of modern Intercom applications:
– Reliable point-to-point audio/video communication connections
– Building management and control functionalities
– Back-office management and system administration
Market requirements on contemporary intercom systems are as varied as the environments in which they are used.
Commend solutions are designed to accommodate a wide range of different system topologies and installation sizes. This is made possible by an essentially modular system structure on virtually every level. Intercom components, communication channels and network links can be arranged into various layouts (typologies), depending on the overall scope and individual requirements (e.g., performance, need to integrate existing equipment, etc.).
