On-Q Selective Call Four-location Intercom Kit
Our take on the On-Q Selective Call Four-location Intercom Kit by Crutchfield's Kramer Crane
No more shouting across the house
My home office is in the basement, so my wife and daughter are constantly yelling to me from the top of the stairs. Wouldn't it be nice for them to simply press a button and talk in a normal voice? Meet On-Q's Selective Call intercom system. It's a fun, simple way of communicating around the house without needing to stretch a string between two tin cans. Everything you need for four rooms is included.
Customize and expand your system
The system includes four intercom units, a distribution module, and a power supply. Each intercom unit has the same communication options, so you can quickly relay information from any room. You can even assign custom names for each room to make selection easy.
Want to ask the kids if they are done with their homework? How about checking in with your guests across the house? Just select the room (or rooms) you want to talk to and press a button. Expand your system to up to eight rooms with additional intercom units (sold separately).
