Three Steps To Choosing The Best Wireless Intercom For You

Updated on November 21, 2012

Choosing a Wireless Intercom

Most people really don't realize how a wireless intercom system could make their lives a little easier or better. There are many applications for these handy little units.

Some people use them to stop the shouting between family members. Others use them for communicating to elderly or handicapped people in their care. You can use them to talk to people at your front door. You can take them camping or boating. Put one in your workshop to communicate with your spouse or a waterproof one on your kid's playground to tell them to come in for dinner. Since some are battery powered, their uses are only limited by your creativity.

Choosing a wireless intercom system is a matter of preference, application, and knowing what other wireless technologies are in use in your home or business. Following are the steps required to choose the best wireless intercom system for you:

Step 1: Decide how you want to use them. What's your application? Does it require AC power or is it battery powered only. What's the range between units? What features do you need? Are you concerned about other people hearing your conversations? Will a unit be needed outside? These are all questions you must first answer before you are ready to shop.

Step 2: What other wireless and electrical products are in use in your home or business? Wireless products can interfere with each other. Electric motors, microwaves, and other devices can produce buzzing on some intercoms. Review the following wireless intercom article for details about wireless technology available: http://ezinearticles.com/?Choosing-The-Best-Wireless-Intercom-System-Without-Interfering-With-Your-Existing-Wireless-Products&id=664756

Step 3: What price can you afford. You can get cheap intercom units, but remember that you get what you pay for. You can get units very cheaply but you may have to live with poor audio quality. If you can live with that, or that's all you can afford, a cheap wireless intercom is better than no intercom at all.

By answering the questions in this article, you will be well on your way to making an intelligent choice in choosing the right wireless intercom for you.
