Hello from Turkey,

We are planning an intercom system in our box office. I have found two brand after internet search. Norcon and haventech. Both of them are quite expensive for us. Are there any cheaper solution and any advice about those intercom system.

Regards,
Fevzi Genc

We use the basic norcom and have been very happy. I had to replace the mike once after many years of service.

** By basic I meant the one piece mike and speaker that fits in the same hole in the glass as the sloted metal plat we had to let sound pass through.

A professional intercom wired into your building is a good investment, but avoid the plug-in radio wave (RF) types that use the power lines to carry the message. Such are convenient, but NOT secure. Anyone with another unit or equipment who can plug into your side of the local power transformer can listen in on your private messages such as how much cash is in the box office; robbers would love to know that.

Also, sometimes such RF types can inadvertantly broadcast outside the building and some people with scanners can pick up the messages/calls. On some such RF units, it is possible for someone else to jam your system and even place their phone calls at your expense. Opt for a hard wired system even if it is more difficult to install.

A nice hole cut in the glass, or the glass removed (if interior) is a good solution as well.

we have radio shak cheapo intercoms. The bad thing about them is if you are not at the unit-you cannot hear when someone calls. We are going to go with vibrate walkies for the project crew and a stand alone for the concession.
