Siedle vs. Swiftlane Video Intercom – which is better for your building?

Video Intercom

The Siedle Vario Intercom includes video door stations and indoor stations connected through a two-wire Bus Video Modulator that can also accommodate multiple external cameras. It also allows users to answer intercom calls from their smartphone.

While both Swiftlane and Siedle offer smartphone intercom calling and door release, Siedle can only support one-way video intercom. Swiftlane has two-way video intercom with the option for intercom call recipients to turn off their camera and create a one-way video intercom call if they choose. This allows the recipient to choose if they want their visitor to see them, but they will always be able to see their visitor.

Visitor Management

Siedle intercom’s visitor management is limited to a simple intercom system that can make audio or one-way video intercom calls. Swiftlane, however, also allows users to generate single or multi-use PIN codes that can be given out to anyone, including visitors, couriers, food deliveries, dog walkers, and more. This gives users the freedom to manage their visitors without having to wait for an intercom call.
