2N Intercom Review

Advantages

  • Does not require master stations
  • Owned by Axis, so offers good integration with other Axis products
  • Can retrofit with legacy systems such as RFID card readers and fingerprint scanners
  • Built-in night vision camera
  • Free onsite configuration support
  • Easy to install and start using
  • Centralized multi-device management through a web interface

Disadvantages

  • Assembly required: the biggest grievance with a 2N entry system is the lack of “plug and play” installation. 2N intercoms are modularized and must be ordered and assembled separately. 
  • Low-quality audio: the voice and video quality of IP intercom can be affected by electromagnetic or RF interference 
  • The spread of germs and disease such as COVID-19 should be carefully considered when integrating a touchscreen or fingerprint system

2N Intercom vs. Swiftlane Video Intercom 

2N has a wide range of models with various applications and functionalities. Overall, it is a robust, durable intercom system. The modular design gives the system a lot of flexibility and potential for customization. However, this feature is not for everyone.

The time-consuming nature of a modularized product model makes 2N entry systems more complicated to scale and deploy. They system’s time-consuming nature is also reflected in its on-site software operability. Software updates and administrative management to be conducted manually.
