The 1816 Telephone Intercom System offers outstanding features that allow the resident to be in charge of their calls and can interface with up to 1200 phone lines. Ideally suited for apartment buildings, college resident halls, high rise condominiums, office buildings, and public housing authority projects where controlling access into the building is an essential part of a security program

The 1816 also provides communication and control of the door even if the resident does not have central office phone service.
