Only works on some rooms
1 Star Review   By Bill32 on Home Depot - Jun 9, 2013   

The problem with these systems is that they only work on wall plugs that are on the same side of your 220 volt main pannel. That is a problem that the average homeowner can not even figure out, let along fix. In addition, they are prone to having "I can hear you but why can't you hear me" issues. Junk, buy something else.

This product has great features
1 Star Review   By LadyJane on Home Depot - Apr 19, 2013   

Received this item on Tues due to me having foot surgery. I would be able to contact my husband in the garage if I needed him. Worked great up until Thurs. Tried to use it on Fri...no luck. I could hear my husband but he could not hear me talk or ring for him. Had to take it back...will not buy another.

Misleading
1 Star Review   By Robert on Home Depot - Feb 20, 2013   

Unfortunately the installation manual and the product info on line both elude to the fact that this product has some requirements that the average homeowner would never think about. This product is not only wireless it's antenaeless. That is it doesn't use an antennae to broadcast a signal to the other units it useses the power circuit and sends an FM radio frequency signal over the power circuuit, which is no problem as long as each unit is on the same "phase" inside the residence electrical power panel. Technical stuff that is not explained anywhere, and not something the average homeowner can take care of themselves without hiring an electrician if cuircuts don't match phasing. The product itself is fantastic and inexpensive, I have an electrician friend that rewired my circuits at no charge, and since my home is 3,444 sq ft it was very likely that these units weren't going to work without some switching around the wiring inside my very large 200 AMP electrical service panel.

4 channels but only one is clear
4 Star Review   By JB111 on Home Depot - Dec 25, 2012   

We only need one channel, but it's a bummer that the other 3 are static and /or unclear

this product does not work well at all
1 Star Review   By DoAt on Home Depot - Jul 10, 2012   

the channels on this product only partially communicate - some channels work, some will not. it also has plenty of static, which was advertised not to have.

Ah well, I tried
2 Star Review   By Triedit on Home Depot - Sep 6, 2011   

I purchased this product despite the bad reviews. And short of tearing down walls to install a built-in intercom system, I thought this was a good compromise. I got four of these units, three for the upstairs rooms and one main unit for downstairs. The one downstairs could not reach all three of the upstairs units from the same outlet. I had to move it to the kitchen just to reach the third room (that room was at the other side of the house, apparently on a different circuit). One bedroom I couldn't reach at all with the downstairs unit, but one of the upstairs units could reach that room. It was all very inefficient. I still use them some, but it's easier to just text message my kids or yell to get their attention. I appreciate that they tried to come up with a wireless solution, but if you are limited to outlets that may be out of reach, it's not very convenient or practical.

Great product
5 Star Review   By shoegirl on Home Depot - Aug 8, 2011   

These intercoms worked so great, I ordered another set to have them in 4 different rooms. We use them to communicate between the basement and upstairs. My husband is hard of hearing and he can hear these just fine. The sound is crystal clear.

This product was a complete disappointment
1 Star Review   By ck11411 on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2011   

I was terribly disappointed in the range and volume level of the buzzer capability on this unit. I even bought extra units with the hope of placing them in various rooms upstairs. I could not even hear the buzzer when pressed, standing right on top of it. It is useless in our home. I am returning it.

Review Correction
5 Star Review   By Pharoah42 on Home Depot - May 22, 2010   

Before other electricians jump all over me, I need to correct a statement in my previous review. My statement, "When you look in your circuit breaker panel, you most commonly see two vertical rows of circuit breakers; these are your "two legs," each providing 120 volts of power." is incorrect. When determining where to place your intercoms within your home, remembering that they have to be on the same "leg" to communicate, bear in mind that "EVEN" numbered breakers are on one leg, and "ODD" numbered breakers are on the other. Hence, an intercom on a circuit connected to breaker 5, would not be able to communicate with intercoms connected to circuit breaker 12. Please excuse my earlier error; hadn't had my morning coffee yet. Hope this helps. A great product!

Does not work with modern homes
1 Star Review   By abena on Home Depot - Apr 7, 2010   

These intercoms apparently communicate through the electrical system. For homes with modern breaker panels where different rooms are on different circuits, this product will not work. The GFI plugs in the kitchen also block the communication. Even when two units ARE connected on power circuits that communicate, the functionality is totally impractical. The channel that you are calling and the channel that you are on have to be same. So if I set each intercom in each room to a different channel, and then want to call the living room from the bedroom, I have to switch the bedroom to channel B (my choice for living room channel). Then talk, and then remember to switch my bedroom unit back to channel A (my choisce for bedroom channel). Clearly, I'll forget to switch back eventually, and I won't be able to communicate with the desired room because it's unit won't be on the expected channel.

GREAT PRODUCT
5 Star Review   By JWTEDDY on Home Depot - Dec 27, 2009   

I HAD A VERY OLD INTERCOM TO CALL MY HANDICAPPED SON FROM ANOTHER PART OF THE HOUSE. THAT ONE BROKE AND I LOOKED AROUND ALL OVER UNTIL I CAME ACROSS THIS ONE. IT IS A WONDERFUL UNIT THAT HAS JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR 4 DIFFERENT CHANNELS SO IF YOU GET INTERFERENCE WITH ONE CHANNEL YOU CAN CHANGE TO ANOTHER CHANNEL. EASY TO USE AND EASY TO SET UP THIS 4 CHANNEL INTERCOM WORKS LIKE A CHARM. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

4 Channel Intercom with two stations
5 Star Review   By SummersFL on Home Depot - Jun 8, 2009   

72 year old male with heart problems. Excellent product. Purchased Extra Intercom station also and is clear as a bell throughout home. Have them located with one even in the bathroom. Almost as if having a nurse call chain by your side. Worked perfectly right out of the box and the company even sent along a return free shipping label if I have a problem. Would highly recommend it for both elderly that have someone else living in the home and for parents with young ones so they can use it as a monitor in the childs room.

Intercome
4 Star Review   By Andee on Home Depot - Apr 27, 2009   

This intercome was very easy to use and set up. This allows us to talk from room to room or hear what is going on in a different room.

4 channel intercom
5 Star Review   By backtobasics on Home Depot - Dec 27, 2007   

Very easy to install. Great range and volume. Keep in mind that both units have to be on the same power grid. I have two seperate shops on seperate electrical meters, they won't work that way. Once I ran a cord and powered them from the same meter they worked great!!! I believe this is the same with all intercom systems. Would recommend to anyone looking for an economical intercom system.

Perfect intercom
5 Star Review   By flaxin1 on Home Depot - Oct 3, 2007   

This intercom was super easy, quick, and very clear. What a definite great investment. My bro-in-law lives with us and it's made it so convenient to reach him out in the far bedroom. I'd like to get another station actually...soon! For out in the backyard when the guys are out there working or playing horseshoes!!

Mrs. Nancy Hendrix
5 Star Review   Home Depot   

This wireless intercom was purchased as a birthday present for my husband so that we would be able to communicate between the house and his detached workshop. It was easy to install, very easy to use, the sound is clear and we now communicate easily without having to run back and forth from the house to workshop. Before purchasing this model, I did a lot of research on the internet and Home Depot had the best deal on the product that I thought would meet our needs. He was very pleased with his new gift.

4 channel intercom systen
5 Star Review   Home Depot   

I recently purchased this product and i love it. We have a 2 story house and we were tired of screaming back and forth for kids to come upstairs. Now with the intercom system all i have to do is press the call button and talk to them. The range is very good also.
