When you look at the existing telephone entry systems or in other words telephone intercom applications for apartments, you are looking mainly at 3 types of telephone door entry systems. Telephone auto dialer system, Telephone hardwired system and of course the old fashioned stand-alone system are the 3 systems to be precise.Auto dialer telephone entry systems are often called as phone bill systems while the hardwired telephone entry systems are called no-phone bill systems.
Let us explore these 3 types and their similarities and differences which will give you a better understanding when you are picking an entry system to
your apartment. Old Fashioned stand-alone door entry systems involve additional infrastructure cost as it has to bear cost for special wiring inside the premises for installation and special indoor stations. Normally, apartments have only one indoor station for the intended use of the tenant. One major drawback of this system more widely known is the poor audio quality at times.
But the race nowadays is mostly between auto dialer entry systems and its counterpart hard wired telephone entry systems. Auto dialer entry systems requires a direct phone line from a local phone company. When a guest arrives at the door and when they call the resident in the apartment, it will go through as a general phone call to the resident’s house. This means
the more visitors keep coming for the apartment, tenants will have to bear a higher telephone bill. It is a burden on most customers and it also brings out the issue of what if the residents don’t have any phone service and if they wish to
discontinue it, the unit at the front door won’t be of any use.

The dependency of a dedicated phone service at the resident’s apartment has limited the options for consumers when selecting a entry door systems.The availability of the service provider is also key to the success and the quality of service in these door entry systems.The other main concern for the auto dialer entry systems is that the extra charges that comes with it. As each time a visitor arrives a phone call to inside the apartment is made and it is charged like a regular call. The phone company considers this dedicated line as a business line and bills the apartment accordingly. Imagine the situation of the apartment having a significantly large number of visitors, in which case the residents will have to bear a extremely high utility bill. In cases where the apartments might need additional doors for access controlling purposes, each additional door entry system will require an additional dedicated phone line which means additional phone charges once again. If not,
simultaneous phone calls to these different entry systems cannot be processed as there is only one phone line.However
auto dialer systems have always been a target of various kind of call frauds which is another drawback inherent to the system.
Most people nowadays don’t have a home phone service to their apartments,as they are using their mobile phones as their primary mode of communication. In which case phone companies charge these wireless calls both to the apartment and to each individual tenants, which most of the times is harsh on the tenants.Especially on apartments where only one resident
is living, normally there’s no phone service only a cell phone is used. So the additional charges due to wireless calls is
another drawback of this type of entry system.
Hardwired telephone intercom systems have special wiring that is needed during installation and the main difference is that
it uses your existing phone line and there’s no additional phone lines needed to implement this system. When a guest
presses the call button, a double ring alerts the people inside that someone is at the gate, as opposed to an incoming telephone call. Therefore there is no additional phone bill involved in this, which is the main advantage of this entry system.
As each system has its inherent benefits and drawbacks, all these door entry systems appeal to one or another based on their expectations of a telephone entry system and their expectations.
