• DYK - The First Corporate Intercom System was the “Boss-to-Secretary” intercom in 1937 by Executone, Inc., who became a leading intercom provider by the 1950s.
Why Intercom Systems?
Did You Know; Since the beginning of mankind, people have always needed to communicate over distances, from smoke signals to the telephone, to Internet email, “external” communication is ever-evolving. Communication over smaller distances within a facility is considered “internal communication", which is where the term “Intercom” is derived.
The person credited with inventing the intercom system was Allan Bernstein, an electronics engineer, and founder of Adams Laboratories, the manufacturing arm of what later became Executone Inc.
Early in his career, Berstein invented one of the first intercom systems, the “Boss-to-Secretary” system in 1937, followed by the “Patient-to-Nurse” call station for Hospitals.
Today, Intercom Systems are more than just pushing a button and speaking into a panel for two-way communication. IP-based commercial intercom systems are an integral part of facility-wide communications and security applications in hospitals, commercial sites, industrial facilities, retail malls, schools, campuses, parking garages, and corporate businesses.
