Installing intercom own hands

To ensure greater security, can be equipped with video intercom apartmentin the stairwell of an apartment building.This can be done in two ways: to install a video camera on a common access door or panel mounted with a video camera at the door of the apartment.

For example, we are using a video camera mounted in the door panel, which is sold bundled with the monitor.Acquiring the electronic lock is not necessary, since it is already available.

work begins with the acquisition of the required number of cable.To connect the camcorder is better to use twisted pair wire in a screen-type FTP 4 X 2 X 0.5-5e.

drilled into the hallway dowel holes for mounting the monitor and the hole on the landing to output wires that go to the camera.In each entrance there is a vertical shaft, where the television, telephone and intercom wires.

from the outlet to the mine drill holes for dowels and screws to install the cable channel.

Paving the wire from the mine to the apartments, connect it to the monitor and the power supply to the network.Video phone is ready for use.

disadvantage of this method, for all its simplicity, is the presence of two units in the apartment, but if you have experience, it is a snap link and a lock control to transfer to the monitor unit, and all unnecessaryremove.

intercom installation with their own hands and implies the use of a single video camera, which can be put into vandal-proof housing and install in any place that provides a good overview.

By the same principle of personal video intercom installs directly to the door of your apartment, in addition to a common driveway intercom.The only difference is that the outside panel is connected completely, including the audio channel.Wires, thus, the minimum quantity is used.
