This Apartment Building Intercom System gives the
building owner/administrator the ability to deliver the exact
cost/functionality ratio required for each resident. At the same time
it affords the building owner the ability to accommodate any physical
building condition, wiring situation and telephone service
requirements when delivering access control services for the building.
Four major classes of service are
available to all residents with the OmniCom Apartment Intercom Systems. Each service class is unique and may be
chosen for any resident without restriction in a system. Cost, physical and wiring conditions
as well as type of telephone service are the factors that determine the choice of a
class of service for a particular resident. Below is a detailed
description of each class of service.
Line-Intercept Class of Service
For tenants with an existing dial-tone phone line. So entry access
services may be handled from their dial-tone phone sets over
their own phone lines, instead of a dedicated telephone line. This class of service is supported by an
IPC type of interface card within the MPU (Master
Stand-Alone Intercom Class of Service
For suites with the physical telephone wirelines but with no dial
tone service from the local phone company. So tenants may use one or
more phone sets on the dead line to access entry services. This
class of service is supported by an IPC type of interface card
within the MPU.
Auto-Dial Service Class
For suites without a
conventional landline, or suites that may not have any
physical telephone wirelines across the building into the suite at
all. Residents are
assumed to only have cell phone service for telephone or special dial
tone delivered from within their units to their wired phones, i.e a
cable box. One common service telephone
line is provided at such effect for all residents with that class of
access service. All guests' entry calls are channeled to the
residents' phones via the service line.
This class of service
is also for suites with an actual phone line. It then conveniently puts the
resident within reach of guests whether he/she is at home, or away
from home. Door entry calls are directed to the home
phones on the line or to any other phone number the resident forwards
calls to his home number to, including cell phone numbers (forwarding
service by telephone service provider). One dedicated service telephone line
is required for all residents assigned to that class of service.
This class of service incur
costs to be supported by the condominium. More than one service line
may be used for different groups of residents if the administrator so
desires. The Common-Line Auto-Dial class of service is supported
by one ADC type of interface card
within the MPU for each resident.
Auto-Dial Service Class
In that class of service the
OmniCom Telephone Intercom System
is directly set to call the resident's cell
phone to channel guests' entry calls by using the resident's own land line
as a means for the call. If the resident's phone line is busy at the time of
the call, he/she will perceive warning tones while the system connects
the call to the land line in use. The resident may summarily accept or
reject the entry system's call. This class of service is supported by
an ADC type of interface card within the MPU.
of service makes the resident directly and solely responsible for
costs of calls to his/her suite generated by the entry system since
his/her land line is used as a means for the call and his/her cell
phone is used as the target for the call. Further this class of
service conveniently puts the resident within reach of guests at all
he/she is at home or far away from home.
Both types of Auto-Dial
classes of service are directly selectable at the flip of a switch
within the MPU Controller of the Telephone Entry System. Both types of Auto-Dial classes of service
are currently with all types of available Entry Panels.
