I decided to go with a wireless phone system instead of a dedicated intercom system.

The reason for this was to have the flexibility of regular phone in case of a emergency situation. There are many brands of phone makers who incorporate both phone and intercom systems at a very reasonable price.

I went with a VTECH system as it was a proven DECT 6.0 secure phone with rolling encryption and multi frequency 5.4 Ghz bandwidth.

In plain English . . .

This phone is secure against casual eve dropping from others. It has an extreme range of more than one mile while offering crystal clear sound.

That is my $0.0000000000000000000000000001 for you.

I have the Radio Shack Model 4300124 Cat #43-124 900MHZ Wireless Intercom with VOX mode feature. It works great for me, love it soo far. I bought it new off of E- Bay for less than $60. Russ
