Some of the best intercom systems are those that allow the home dweller to simply press a button and request information from the person knocking at the door. The person at the door ringing the bell or knocking cannot always be trusted nowadays: especially with all the trickery going on where intruders try to play victim to allow the homeowner to grant them entry.

Security systems in homes can include cameras, but the best systems also have sensors on walls and windows to ensure there is no passage into the home without authorities being notified.
