The Different Types of Intercom Systems

Before exploring the home automation solution of GuestKey, it is important to understand the different types of intercom systems. They can be divided into three main categories:

  1. Analogue systems (4+n wires): These systems use 4 common wires for all apartments and a dedicated wire for each apartment. The external button panel directs the call to the desired apartment. The internal ringtone in the apartment will sound only for the direct call to the corresponding unit.
  2. Bus type systems (2 wires): These systems use two common wires for all apartments and the calls are addressed through a code managed by the bus. Each apartment will have a different extension and the opening and call commands travel in the form of codes through the bus.

How to Manage the Opening of the Condominium Door of your Home Remotely

Remote management of the opening of the condominium door is possible with the help of a device that communicates with the outside via an internet connection and interacts with the intercom system. It is essential to limit the intervention exclusively to the internal part of the apartment (for example, the handset) so as not to interfere with the common parts of the system, including the condominium external pushbutton panel.

But how to solve the problem if the intercom system does not have an internet connection? In this case, you need to install an external device with this functionality to allow remote opening to guests.
