Standard wired intercoms
Are usually low cost and very reliable. They have been improved immensely over the years. With the addition of built-in video monitors, code pads, biometrics and card tag readers. On the negative side, installation in older buildings that require a lot of wiring can be an issue. For large sites using a video system, the costs may run high, due to the multiple wires that have to run on each handset.
Are a low-cost alternative to GSM systems. They are good for sites with poor reception. As interference is less likely, due to the switch from analogue to digital signals. Although limited in terms of range, wireless intercoms work well, up to 100m or 250m, depending on the site. In some large properties, however, or where a house is behind another, signals may have difficulty passing through the walls.
Stands for Global System for Mobile communication. A GSM intercom uses a mobile phone sim card, to make telephone calls across a mobile network. To landline or mobile numbers. In other words, no matter where you are, a person can call you to gain access. Another key point is that they are easy to update with new numbers and to install. There is no need to lay cables or dig up the driveway, so the process is much quicker. Although equipment costs tend to be quite high, overall, GSM systems are very cost effective.
Radio control transmitters
Come conveniently packaged in the form of a handy key ring. For the purpose of operating your gates and garage doors with one transmitter and a single code. All in all, the most commonly used and least expensive of all devices.
Although this may be true, rolling code transmitters send a different encrypted code each time to the receiver. With this in mind, they are an excellent choice for high security.
Networked Card Readers
These systems are the same as the GSM system, except they use the sites internal network.
Long Range Car Readers
Can be expensive as they are active most of the time. Powered like a radio key fob, the reader sends a signal and a nearby card answers. These systems work with vehicles to manage high traffic sites.
Number Plate Recognition
Is an expensive form of access control. That said, for large fleets of vehicles, it is probably the cheapest option.
As vehicles approach, a fixed camera reads the number plate. The system checks the database of stored numbers, to allow or deny access.
