In a recently purchased home (early '70's), there is an intercom system with the main base mounted in the kitchen wall (photo) and little speakers mounted in nearly every other room throughout the two-story house.

My general thoughts are to never just wall it off - besides the obvious drywall and stucco issues (there are 8 remote stations), it just doesn't seem right to seal off this wiring that would not be easily replaced (two story home).

It's never been easier to integrate a music and voice communication system to new construction or an existing home with an M&S System product.

We put a nice picture into that frame and the old master is now gone - or at least covered up.

It is still functional as our doorbell and we can simply lift the frame off if we want to use the master for some reason.Does anybody have any recommendations on a newer system to drop in there? I'm pretty turned off by the sites I've seen so far - a lot of poorly-reviewed products offered on junky sites that still sell central vacuum cleaners (ridiculously priced). Or have I just summed up the unfortunate position everyone with a home intercom system is in? Our house was built in 1994 and has a Nu-tone whole house intercom system which we no longer use except for the front door which is also sounds our doorbell.I'm beginning to think now that the demand side of this equation is so low that the supply side is taking great advantage in offering garbage that's anything but "newer" technology. The master station in the kitchen looks terrible because of sun yellowing.Please register to participate in our discussions with 2 million other members - it's free and quick!Some forums can only be seen by registered members.Bosch Communications Systems is introducing a new media networking solution to provide open public standards-based media networking technology to promote device interconnectivity.
