Intercom systems have come a long way since the 70s. Now you can easily communicate with everyone throughout the house, and guests, via HD video and audio. You’ll be able to screen visitors by seeing them at the front door and talking to them through outdoor speakers. Keep an eye on the kids as they get ready in the morning by viewing them with the in-wall touch screen in your bedroom, then tell them to hurry up if you’re running late. This feature is not only convenient, but is beneficial for security purposes as well.
