Linear Unveils VMC1 Video Security Intercom

May 11, 2012

Linear LLC has unveiled the new VMC1 Video Security Intercom, combining intercom, live video and basic home control, giving homeowners multiple communication and security features in one package.

 VMC1 Video Security Intercom

 
Ideal for medium to larger-sized homes and smaller commercial businesses, the new Intercom and accessories offer functions that far exceed basic door-to-video screen entry systems:
 
· Integrated video security – Up to three color video camera stations allow users to view activities inside and out from the master unit, any TV screen, or via a snapshot or video signal sent to a smart phone or computer monitor.
 
· Home security via smart home control – Users can turn lights on or off remotely or automatically; see when doors are left open; remotely close a garage door or activate an alarm system panic alert.
 
· Intercom communication and monitoring – The system enables users to speak to a single room, a group of rooms or the whole house (up to 20 rooms). One or more rooms can also be monitored or kept private.
 
· Whole-house music – The VMC1 supplies audio for rooms of all sizes using three-inch, 16 ohm speakers. An AM/FM radio is integral to the system, with inputs for an MP3 player.
