An intercom system is a two-way communication electronic device that contains circuitry for the purpose of transmitting and receiving audio and/or video transmissions. A video intercom is a stand-alone intercom system that typically has a unit that has a camera, speaker, and a push button that goes at an entrance door, and an internal monitor unit that can communicate with the entrance unit. Some systems can have multiple video monitors internally. Given the difficulty of sending video over the airwaves at very much distance without interference, most available units are wired. It is also called video door-phone or video door entry. The main feature of this system is that it enables the person indoors to identify the visitor and, if (and only if) they wish, engage in conversation and/or open the door to allow access to the person calling.
The target customers for the video intercom devices and equipment industry include individuals and companies from residential, commercial, educational, recreational, industrial and government sectors.
Market Dynamics and Opportunities
The global market for video intercom devices and equipment is estimated to grow at a promising CAGR of about 7%. The need for video intercom accessories in residential and commercial buildings is the market driver for this particular market. Increasing automation and the change in direction of customers towards the portable video intercom devices are accountable for the shift from audio to video door phones or video intercom devices. The introduction of low-priced Chinese intercom devices makes the market competitive, thus backing the market growth. But now, with the advent of cellular communication, digital telephone systems, and other communication devices, the use of intercoms has relatively declined. However, there are still lots of applications where these devices still work better than anything else. Latest trends in market include digital travel, the evolution of eco-tourism and the rise of adventure tourism.
The market is segmented in terms of the type of device and the type of access control. Based on device type, the global video intercom devices and equipment market is broadly categorized into door entry systems, video baby monitors and handheld devices. Further on the basis of access control, the video intercom devices and equipment market is divided into proximity cards, fingerprint readers, password access and Bluetooth control. As mentioned earlier, the equipment includes both outside and indoor elements: an outdoor panel on the outside, an electronic lock release and an indoor monitor.
