Tighten Up Your Security with a Door Entry Phone

Security is paramount these days – at home and at work. No-one would consider opening the door blind any more, not in either case: and that’s where the door entry phone comes into its own. Modern door entry systems can be installed by telephone engineers so they work as part of an existing system: provided that the phones making up that system are compatible with the door release mechanism.

The convenience of using a modern door entry system, hooked into the working phone network of an office, is worth having all the phones replaced so they are able to operate the door lock. Single phone units don’t cost a lot, particularly when they are installed as part of a bulk set up – and the ease with which any employee can then use the door entry phone from his or her desk makes all that complicated setting up and moving about a thing of the past. The telephone engineers simply install a new phone system for the office, complete with all the usual bells and whistles one would expect from a modern business communications system – and then hooks the lot up to the door entry intercom, which can be accepted or denied from any handset linked in to the network.

In an office environment, where different people may be expected to be in the office at different times of day, using a desk handset to work the door entry phone can be invaluable. Important deliveries have been known to go astray as a result of a single employee, working late or early, not hearing an intercom buzzer – but when that employee knows he or she is the only person in the office, and his or her desk phone rings with a query from the door entry phone, there’s no chance of anything being mislaid or overlooked.

Telephone engineers will back up this kind of system, too – their job is not finished when the last handset has been installed and tested, not even when every employee in the office has had his or her go on the entry phone. Anything that goes wrong with the new system is usually covered in the contract a company makes with its telephone installation people: modern office phone systems are complex computer based organisms, which can require the occasional bit of reprogramming or tech support. Modern telephone engineers are way more than just handy men (or women) – these are people whose tool boxes are as much linked in to the ether as they are to a hardware store. A modern telephone engineer is a qualified network administrator and analyst with certificates to prove it.

A door entry phone, then, can become the last nut in a complete, total office solution for external, internal and interoffice communications. Given that the rest of a business’ communications tend to be linked into a single hub, it makes sense that the door entry system should follow suit. That way, everything is seamless, segued and easy to manage. And with telephone engineers qualified to back it all up, there’s no reason not to do it.


Modern telephone engineers are capable network administrators who can set a door entry phone into a total business system – making one centralised unit for all communications.
