The Top Three Problems With Intercom Systems

You rely on your commercial intercom system to keep your team in the loop, whether in the warehouse or throughout your commercial offices. Or, perhaps you rely on your home intercom system to ensure your elderly parent has instant access to you no matter where you are in your home. Intercom systems are a fantastic tool in both business and residential buildings, but they can experience problems. Momo Locksmith can fix those problems. Here are three common intercom repairs we perform all the time.

Static Noise

Ah, static; frustrating to the point of being infuriating. Static can come from three separate places: somewhere within the intercom system, the microphone(s), or the speakers. The first step in repairing intercom static is to find the source of the static. Usually, the static is caused by a loose wire, power issues, or interference. You might think that static could not be caused by interference because your intercom system is a closed one, but in rare cases, you can even get interference on closed intercom systems. Oftentimes, static is the start of the entire intercom system going dead.

Humming Noise

Humming noises are also quite frustrating. Usually, the system will generate a humming sound while you or one of your employees or family members is trying to use it. In nearly every case, the humming sound is caused by faulty wiring within the intercom system, so it’s important you have it fixed as soon as possible. Faulty wiring can be dangerous to your intercom system and the building in which the intercom is used. Failure to have the wiring fixed will eventually render your intercom system inoperable and could even set the building or residence on fire. It’s not worth the risk to ignore the humming.

Failing Power Supply

Finally, problems one and two are often tied to an electrical issue and, sometimes, that issue is the power supply to the intercom itself rather than the electrical wiring. Signs the power supply is having trouble more often include the static discussed above, but you might hear some humming, too. In most cases, you will get a warning before the intercom’s power supply goes out completely. This being said, your power supply could go out without any warning after which the intercom system will die completely. Check your fuse box first to see if a fuse has blown. If not, the power supply might be dead.
