Anyone have or have had Intercom in there home? We live in a home with 3 floors if you include the basement which is carpeted and turned into a family type room. By now most of you know I can't walk and the only way I getup of down the stairs is by using one of those Stair lifts that you sit on and it takes me up the stairs and back down. We don't have one going to the basement family room and generally that is used by my daughter and her friends or if family come over. Starting near the end of May we have the AC running pretty much all day every day until sometime near the middle of October. We have 1 AC on each floor along with Ceiling Fans. The problem is having the noise the ACs make along with the Ceiling fans, the TV noise, a teenage daughter who more often then not has her door closed and also wearing headphones makes it very hard for me to get the attention of my daughter and at times even my wife if she's watching TV in the up st airs bedroom or in the basement family room. So I recently jokingly said something to my dad about having the need for a baby monitor in my daughters room. I hadn't realized that getting a home intercom wasn't as expensive as I thought. Anyway now I'd like to purchase a home system with 3 intercoms, but have no idea what I'm looking at and what's important when looking to buy one. I'm not looking to shell out a lot of money, but I don't want to buy one that isn't going to work or is junk that won't last very long. Anyone know the best brands? Do the number of channels matter?
I just need something that allows me to get in touch with my daughter or my wife while they're in the upstairs bedrooms or in the family room just in case I have some medical emergency or I need them for another reason.
Plus it would help get my daughter up for School during the school year.
