Comelit Intercom Review
- Comelit 2-Wire Video Intercom supports internal calling; make calls to other video stations with the Comelit App
- Easy installation on regular power supply
- SD cameras are becoming obsolete because of the availability of low-cost HD cameras
- Poor reviews sited for the Comelit App for its ability to perform basic functions
- Can only support up to 15 smart devices, which is restrictive for medium to large operations
- Software, directory and setting updates need to be done from PC software or locally on the module. When using the PC software to update the system, the information needs to be transferred manually via USB or RS485, as opposed to the cloud which can be done instantaneously and automatically.
