Benefits of Residential Intercoms

non-stop-1 (2)

As an apartment building manager, it is your responsibility to keep your residents and your property safe and secure – however, you may not want to hire a 24/7 security guard for your residential building! In the United States, larceny-theft is the most common type of crime. However, by installing a residential intercom at your residential property as part of a layered security infrastructure, you will ensure that your residential property is truly secure and protected. In this blog post, the intercom installation experts here at Nonstop Locksmith and Security Solutions will provide some details as to the main benefits of installing an intercom at your residential property.

Preventing Criminals from Accessing your Property

Intercoms function as a deterrent flat out. Most thieves who are considering breaking into your residential property will change their minds as soon as they see that you have an intercom. If they decide to attempt entry anyway, they will be forced to identify themselves – which will likely cause them to fail anyway, as most residents won’t allow an uninvited stranger into the property. If you are an apartment complex manager, instruct your tenants not to let strangers into the building. This will ensure that your intercom system is doing it’s best to protect your property.


Preventing Access to Secure Areas

If your apartment complex has areas that are restricted, intercoms can monitor who enters the area, providing a fantastic solution to a hard-to-tackle security issues. With intercom systems installed, anybody who wants access to a restricted area will be forced to identify themselves first, allowing employees who are authorized to work within the restricted area to communicate with the person who wants to enter the location, and allowing them to access the area with a simple button.



Intercoms provide a real-timeline of communication between people inside and outside of a building. This is convenient in a number of scenarios. Apartment building tenants can be notified as soon as their guests arrive. Visitors can communicate directly with the tenants allowing peace of mind for your residents in knowing that they can always verify who is at their building. Intercoms also allow for widespread announcements to be made throughout a building at once, providing efficient safety measures to be taken in the unfortunate event of a fire or evacuation.


Insurance Benefit

Insurance companies prefer apartment properties to be under as little risk as possible – and as an apartment building manager, you can receive steep discounts on your insurance premiums if you install intercoms a your property. You can reduce the chances of theft, burglary, and vandalism within your property by installing intercoms – a fact that insurance companies recognize by providing breaks on monthly insurance premiums. Tell your insurance provider when you install an intercom system – and if they don’t offer a discount for it, trust that another will.


General Security Net Strengthening

Utilized as part of a broad security infrastructure, intercoms greatly improve the levels of safety at your property. If you have video surveillance CCTV cameras already, a person inside your building can have both visual and auditory verification that the person outside their property is allowed to be there, bolstering your level of security measurements. There’s simply no way around it – installing an intercom system at your property is one of the best ways to ensure the security of your residential complex.

Non-Stop sent Chuck to do my door. I had to change keys because my abusive boyfriend finally moved out. He was very friendly and very professional. He even arrived about 5 minutes before the time he was supposed to be! He told me that he has worked for this company since they opened. It took him only about 20 minutes to do everything. The price is reasonable: $65 flat rate and $35 per door. I work on a customer service-oriented job and I can definitely say that this company excels in that part. If you need a locksmith in the Logan Square, Avondale area, don’t waste your time with other companies. Just call Non-Stop! Thanks, Chuck!

Had a car lockout and needed an ignition key. Went to the Infiniti and Nissan dealership (Berman’s Infiniti) to “try” and get stuff sorted out but was met with bad service and tons of misinformation which left a bad impression. One person said one thing and the tech said another. I lost a lot of time and wasted effort trying to get stuff from the dealer’s service center. Then I got a referral to Non-Stop locksmith to get the job done. Quote was accurate had a great job done, courteous service and fast quality work. Dude made keys on the spot! My tech Robert went up and beyond my expectations to help me out of a jam.

My husband and I just bought our first place and needed the locks changed. Being that we needed it done quickly and after business hours (right after closing), I took a chance on going with the first place on Yelp. I couldn’t be happier!! CHRIS came out and was fantastic. He’s very knowledgeable on his craft and super friendly. He got the job done fast and the locks/keys work great. I’m actually about to call again, right now, to change another lock we didn’t know to change that night (for a storage room). Now, I’ve never needed locks changed, but I thought the prices to be reasonable. They charge by the item, not the hour, and gave me pricing right over the phone.
